Roll label design can be a difficult project to take on your own. It is best suited for Primo Print, a professional online printing company specializing in printing roll labels. However, if you would like to pursue creating your own, there are a few things you can do to make the process easier and more enjoyable.

Additional roll label information can be found on our help page.

Use High Resolution Images

Only use high resolution images for your label design project. This will ensure that your image looks professional and crisp. JPEG is the preferred file of choice, as PNG and GIF images are not able to be printed in high resolution. Try to keep all images above 300 dpi.

Feature Your Logo

Your logo should be the center of attention in your custom label. Feature it in the center or near the top of the design, and make sure that it is large enough to stand out from other included illustrations.

Measure

It is vital for you to measure your product’s container before sizing the roll label. This will ensure that you print the proper size for its dimensions. Measuring properly will save you time in the future and prevent the need for size-related adjustments. All of our roll labels have a 3″ core and an outer diameter of up to 6.”

Line Your Artwork Up

Many people fail to use the ruler tool within illustration software. This tool is used to line up artwork, text, and other components of a custom label. It will ensure that your design looks professional.

Create Your Label in CMYK Colors

CMYK colors, or cyan, magenta, yellow, and black, is the standard color scheme for label printing. Do not make the mistake of using RGB (red, green, blue) colors. This scheme is mainly used for the Web, and will not display your design true to color once printed.

Research Label Regulations and Laws

Certain products, such as food products, require specific labeling regulations. Failing to follow these requirements can cause legal complications later on. Research labeling regulations prior to embarking on the design process to save yourself time.

Use Vector Graphics

Vector graphics are used by professional digital illustrators instead of raster graphics. This is because it does not produce a pixelated look or lose image quality when the design is enlarged.

These easy to follow tips can help you create your own custom roll label with few complications. Now that you have a more thorough understanding of label design, you can get creative and have Primo Print print your high-quality roll label. We offer custom graphic design services if you need assistance in designing an effective roll label.

Increase Customer Relations by Sending Greeting Cards

Customers appreciate a personal touch. A fairly popular way that businesses try to give them this is to print greeting cards and sending them out at the holidays.

Businesses are always looking for ways to keep the customers they have gained through the years. Of course, excellent deals on merchandise is one means of accomplishing this.

Businesses are always looking for ways to keep the customers they have gained through the years. Of course, excellent deals on merchandise is one means of accomplishing this.

However, with many businesses competing with prices and deals of nearly equal value, sometimes it’s important to offer something else as well, something the customers are less likely to find at other businesses.

Customers appreciate a personal touch. A fairly popular way that businesses try to give them this is to print greeting cards and sending them out at the holidays. While this is a beginning, a shrewd business can take this even further. Personalized greeting cards can be sent for a wide variety of occasions, from the customer’s birthday to other major life events, such as anniversaries and graduations, in addition to holidays. Additionally, postcards can be used as greeting cards too.

A business that is invested and seemingly interested in its customers to this extent will place itself firmly in the customer’s mind and is more likely to be fondly remembered. It will also stand a good chance of developing that all-important customer loyalty that all businesses desire.

Customers often bond with businesses on an emotional level; if there is something that attracts them enough, they will remain with a particular business even if deals just as good or better come along at other businesses. They will also happily refer the favored business to their family and friends, generating more customers.

The best and most attractive greeting cards are not only sent for special events and holidays, they are beautiful and heart-warming both inside and out. A cheaply put together design is not something an intelligent business would ever want to be known for, even on the greeting cards it sends out.  We offer graphic design services if you are looking for a well designed and memorable greeting card.

Including personal, hand-written messages on the inside of the cards is another key strategy. While a wonderful design is vastly important, so is keeping the personal touch when the customer opens the card. A special, hand-written message is a far more powerful greeting than simply a printed verse and the electronically transferred signatures of those in charge of the business.

Greeting cards are a positive change from other effective practices, such as sending fliers and booklets. They also save on cost when ordered and printed in bulk. And when used properly, they remain one of the most rewarding and far-reaching business strategies. Get started today by contacting Primo Print, an online printing company specializing in printing a variety of business materials.

What’s on Your Business Card?

Look at an old business car; it displays a name, title, fax number, toll free number, and physical address. That info is still relevant, but in the eyes of the customers, it’s outdated and not memorable. Make sure your new company business card has updated information such as website and email addresses. Make sure you look to see what personal information it contains too.

Social media continues to grow and is important in today’s business world. Keeping up to date with your customers is important, and social media allows businesses to directly communicate with them any time. If you have social media accounts, try to incorporate that information into your new business card. The trend in today’s business cards is to create an impression that extends beyond the company to the individual.

It allows customers to contact you using current methods of communication; otherwise you are limiting your networking capabilities.

What Does Your Business Card Look Like?

A sharp logo used to be the best way to set a company apart and define its brand. With today’s advances in technology and business card printing capabilities, a business card has more than just logos. Typography, imagery, colors and orientation are all necessary tools to make your business card stand out from other cards. Learn more about the look of a business card by reading 10 Crucial Parts to a Business Card Design.At Primo Print, we offer a variety of business cards to choose from including silk business cards, foil business cards, matte business cards and linen business cards.Vertical cards are eye-catching and popular.
