Designing

Design matters. You could print a million business cards, posters, stickers or postcards, but if they don’t have a strong design then they won’t work to promote your business, product, service or event. A poor design speaks poorly of you, and we here at PsPrint Blog don’t like anyone speaking poorly of you. Below you will find helpful blog posts covering all aspects of design, so whether you are designing for business or for pleasure, we’ve got a blog post that can help you.

In my earlier post Letterhead Possibilities, Part 1, I gave some thought to the fold, the back of the page and the idea of wrapping around. But there are so many other considerations since you have to include a multitude of bits and pieces and design for both vertical and horizontal layouts. So the meat of your letterhead, namely, the contact information and company logo have to be flexible and modular.

A letterhead system is an important communication tool for your company, or (if you're an army of one), yourself. At its most basic the system should include letterhead, envelopes and business cards. It can include much more than that, but we'll cover that later. A letterhead system makes you look professional and reputable, but it can be a challenge to design for yourself.

The problem and the opportunity are two sides of the same coin.
