Hot Off The Press: Identify Yourself

June 9, 2017

Whether you are starting a new business or rebranding an existing one, it can feel overwhelming. Where do you even begin? Creating new print marketing materials is great place to start. Print marketing materials are the backbone of any business branding effort.

After being laid off from her graphic design job, Shelley Hunter decided to try her hand at a whole new career and bought the Quincy Feather Bed Inn in Quincy, California, located in the Sierra Mountains.

“[At my previous job] I did the bulk of our print with PsPrint, and I chose to stick with them because they consistently do good work that is affordable,” Hunter wrote to us in an email. “As a result of my job loss, we decided to buy the Quincy Feather Bed Inn, and I am creating all the advertising materials for it.”

Hunter designed and printed an entire identity package, including brochures, business cards, letterhead and envelopes. All of them feature the Quincy Feather Bed Inn logo and consistent colors, reinforcing Quincy Feather Bed Inn’s image and message.

It’s easy to get lost in the shuffle when you are advertising online. Giving customers and prospects something physical that they can actually see, feel and hold in their hands makes a more lasting impression.

We thought the coasters would be a perfect promotional item for our business at a local charity event that hosts local breweries in support of animal rescue,” Amanda Jung from The Barkeley wrote us in an email. “Berkeley Humane puts on this awesome event, and we are super excited to be a part of it with the coasters from PsPrint!”
