One of the great things about Primo Print is that we really are a one-stop shop. Just about everything you may need can be designed and ordered from the same place. One of the benefits is that your marketing materials can be designed to match your brand.

Each piece can be printed on the same paper stocks with the same color values, and you don’t have to jump from company to company when trying to figure out what to order from where. We try very hard to make sure all your needs are met and that the ordering process is as quick and easy as possible.

That being said, we recently had a company called Newport Asia come to us with some design and printing needs. They already had part of a logo, but it needed a couple small tweaks. I adjusted the file to get it print-ready and then began working with them to create

We took a very simple, classic look for each item, and all of their pieces were printed on linen, except for the folder which we printed on matte. When completed, everything matched wonderfully. Each piece coordinated so well together as they all had the same color values and textures.

Now, when Newport Asia sends material to customers, they will feel like they have a complete brand. It’s amazing how having these simple items can really elevate the appeal and sophistication of a business.

Primo Print: Printing custom designed marketing material. Business Cards, Letterhead, Envelopes, Presentation Folders, Notepads and More!

It was very nice working with Newport Asia, and I look forward to designing for them again in the future.

A recent customer came to us with a need for a logo. Located in Atlanta, Guardian Solutions is a new company that offers financial planning.

After going over the background of the company, as well as the fundamentals of what they do/believe in, we decided that an eagle would the perfect symbol for Guardian. We played with a few variations of the eagle, but thought that something more geometric and fluid would work best. After drawing the eagle, we decided to make the type very simple, so that it didn’t take away from the power of the eagle.

We also played around with a few color combinations. Did the eagle need to be traditional colors in order to read clearly? Could the eagle be brown or blue and still have the same impact? Although the customer did like the alternatives, we decided that the grey, yellow and black were the most powerful.Guardian Custom Logo DesignOverall, the customer was very happy with the end result. They were provided with all logo files and will be using the design on a variety of products. We designed business cards to start and will be working on brochures, presentation folders and letterhead in the upcoming weeks.

Custom Logo for Linen Business Card

Look at the logo closely – the cross hatch design gives the linen stock a slightly textured look and feel.

After going over the background of the company, as well as the fundamentals of what they do/believe in, we decided than an eagle would the perfect symbol for Guardian. We discuss why the eagle and the color works best.

When owning a business, there are certain things you’ll need such as a logo. Depending on your business, you may also need additional printed materials including business cards, brochures and flyers, letterhead, postcards and more.

You basically have one of two options. You can either pull out your computer and put something together yourself, or you can hire a trained professional graphic designer to design a custom logo that truly defines who you and what you can offer. We currently offer custom business card designs starting at $50. Get started here.

Many graphic designers have spent years working with businesses and have learned how to use a creative approach that allows them to speak to their current and potential customers. Graphic designers can create a piece that is visually appealing and allows a business to proudly display their brand everywhere the business goes.

When researching your designer:

  • First, view their portfolio. Every designer should have a website or some sort of digital portfolio available that you can browse through and get an idea of their style. Look through each piece carefully. If you don’t care for the work on their site, you probably won’t care for the work they create for you. View some of our custom designs here.
  • With the digital world we live in, don’t be afraid to look outside your neighborhood. There are thousands of amazing graphic designers all over the country. And through email and/or phone calls, you can easily work with a designer in another time zone.
  • Look for recommendations. Ask other business owners who designs their pieces. If you see a business with an amazing logo, they probably can recommend the designer that created it. Read some of our print reviews.
  • Pay attention to price. As the saying goes, “you get what you pay for.” If a logo design cost seems cheap, it probably will look that way too. Graphic designers usually charge between $50-$125 per hour. That may seem expensive, but think of this as an investment into your business. Not only is it tax deductible, but an amazing logo and business card is going to stay with your business forever. Postcards, brochures, etc. may need to change depending on your message, but once you have an initial design, it’s easy for a designer to pick up the design and alter it slightly to fit the new message. It’s much faster than creating a design from scratch, and it also helps brand your business by tying everything together. At Primo Print, we offer graphic design services, and we keep the files to help with the quick edits and changes.
  • Learn up-front what you get for your money. A good designer should have an outline as to what they will provide you when creating your design. For example, $250 for a logo may include 4 initial logo concepts, 3 rounds of revisions and the final logo provided in 4 different file types that you can use however you need. Also, make sure your design is one-of-a-kind and that the designer will not use the design again in the future for another company.

Once you have chosen your designer, it’s important that you think about what you are looking for. Designers are creative ,and they can usually come up with beautiful work with little direction. But if you have something specific in mind, make sure you express it to the designer upfront. There’s nothing worse than having a designer spend hours creating a logo he or she thinks is perfect, and then the client coming back later and telling the designer there’s something specific they want as the design.

 

Each designer will have their own process, so read their emails carefully and make sure you answer each of their questions to the best of your ability. Sometimes it’s best to to give more information than what you think is relevant, but make sure you keep it focussed and to the point.

Custom Postcard Design

 

Logo Design: Prepare for your Designer:

  • What is the name of your business?
  • Is there a special meaning behind the name?
  • Why did you name it this?
  • What is the main purpose of the company?
  • What do you make, sell, or provide?
  • Do you have any specific images in mind?
  • Any specific colors you’d like to see used?

Are there any logos or artwork that you like or would like the designer to reference? Feel free to list links. You obviously don’t want to copy a design, but if there are logos that you like the look of, the visual reference helps. Feel free to create a Pinterest board and share it with the designer. Any other information you feel is important may be helpful in the design process.

If you are have a designer create a postcard, business card, brochure, etc., make sure you put together all of your text and photos before you give them the job. It is really helpful to have all the pieces before you start laying the project out. Additionally, if you can provide text that is as close to 100% complete as possible, that helps the designer too. Also, the more pieces you provide in the beginning, the less time you will be charged in the end.

Working with a designer should be fun and shouldn’t be a stressful process. With as many designers as there are out there, I’m sure you will be able to find one that you feel comfortable with and who will feel like they are a part of your team. Let us help you with your next print project. Contact us, and we’ll be happy to answer any questions.

Know When (And When Not) to Do It Yourself

Recently a small business owner contacted us to print her postcards. This client had designed the cards herself using a competitors online designer. Unfortunately we were unable to use the files due to a watermark so we suggested that she let one of our graphic designers recreate it for her.

We’ve all been enticed at some point to take on a project ourselves to save money. But in the end, did we really do ourselves any favors?

Postcard Design (Before):Custom Postcard Design by Primo Print

Postcard Design (After):Custom Postcard Designed by Primo Print

Online design software is very tedious, and the results can wind up being less than spectacular.

A professional designer is not just going to build a file; they are going to design a piece that fits YOUR needs, not the generic needs of anyone who needs a postcard.

What’s YOUR Postcard Message?

Working with a professional designer will ensure that your message is clear. The client’s original artwork included a lot of text that made it difficult for the reader to fully grasp the message. A quality design should present your message in a clear and concise manner.

This particular customer spent over two hours using the competitor’s online designer. With a small design fee, our designers can reduce your stress and provide you with a printed product you will truly be proud of.  Additionally, when you break down other printers’ tricky pricing schemes, you may be paying almost as much for their print as you would for print and design services from Primo Print.

Design service should be considered just as valuable as the services that you are trying to promote. Every piece that you send out is an extension of your business and what you have to offer. A professional-looking printed material helps your business look its best!
Just because you have access to these online “tools” doesn’t make it easy to use them to their fullest potential.  Our designers could probably use a dentist drill, but I don’t think you want any of us fixing your cavity.

We would love the opportunity to create a unique one-of-a-kind custom printed product. No matter your print design needs, we can help. Contact us today for a quote or for more additional information.
