Know When (And When Not) to Design 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?

Recently, a small business owner contacted us to print her custom postcards. This client had designed the cards herself using a competitor’s 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.

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 Primoprint.

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.

At Primoprint, we take pride in our design services. Take a look at our graphic design gallery to view some of our on-of-a-kind designs.  For additional design samples, please click the link:  https://dribbble.com/primoprint
