Print Essentials: Logo & Graphic Design Services

When first opening a new business, you’ll have your business name in place and at least a symbol or wordmark in mind to go along with it.  That’s where graphic design services and logo design comes into play. Design is essential when it comes to promotional material, signage, business cards, and of course the company logo and brand identity.

Either partnering with an agency, firm, or even a freelance designer will lessen your workload week to week. Doing this will allow you and your team to focus on other important pieces of the business. Being sure to establish a positive working relationship with your designers is key. For the success of the work being done but also for the success of the business. Learn the value of design thinking for your business.

Print Essentials: Business Stationery

Business stationery is a must-have for any company. Whether it’s business cards, letterheads, envelopes, or notepads, your business requires at least one or two of these items. Business cards are the most effective product in the stationery category. Allowing for your contact information to be given to customers, brought to trade shows, or given out at networking events. Incorporating your brand identity throughout everything will also help to build brand recognition and look professional in the process. Here are some great reasons why business cards are still important.

Print Essentials: Signage

You can own a brick-and-mortar location, but if you don’t have any signage telling people who you are and what you offer, then the business may just suffer a bit. Exterior building signs come in an array of options, materials, and overall styles. Working with a commercial printer, like PRI Graphics, will ease that stress and assure you that the job will be handled properly. Other signs such as interior hanging signs can help to navigate your premises or direct your customers to the right department. Banners work great for any sort of temporary signage or for the grand opening of your location. Banners can also help to promote sales promotions or any other key information you want to let your customers know.

Partnering with a commercial print company that specializes in signage can not only help you get up and running but guide you along the process step-by-step. Contact our signage specialist today by calling 1-877-409-8889 or you can Email Us.

Print Essentials: Marketing & Sales Collateral

Now that your store or location is ready to welcome the masses, you need a way to pull them in. That is where marketing and sales collateral plays their part. Single-page flyers are perfect for handing out to passersby. With key information such as services or products offered, contact information, and targeted messaging, flyers are a great way to keep costs down and engagement up. Trifold or bifold brochures are another great piece to give out to customers. With multiple panels and overall, more space to dig into more detail about your company and products.

If your business relies on a sales force to hit the streets and shake some hands, then sending them out with specific collateral is extremely beneficial. Items like pocket folders work great to contain a variety of flyers, brochures, business cards, and even samples. Being able to show up with these materials neatly assembled in folders helps a ton when pitching new business.
