Let’s make your brand sing!
We do that by designing remarkable printed pieces that you will hand out to prospective clients and customers. Each printed piece designed will reflect your brand and market your products and/or services. Printed pieces include but are not limited to logos, business cards, letterhead, brochures, flyers, posters, presentation folders, annual reports, book layouts, window vinyl, and anything else that requires printing. Read on to find out more about our process:
Discovery & Proposal
To begin, we will have a Discovery Meeting, either at your office or ours, during which we will ‘discover’ everything we need to know about your business and marketing strategy to create effective solutions.
We will then provide you with a detailed proposal within 24 hours of our Discovery Meeting.
Once you approve of the proposal, we will meet again to put all of the details of the project into our service agreement. At this time, we require a deposit of 50% of the total fees before beginning work. We will also collect all of the content and images to be included in the design from you.
Design – Stage 1
Then I & my talented team get to work. We will create 3 initial concepts for your design.
We will present our 3 initial concepts to you in a second meeting where we will discuss them. You give me your feedback, and we take the outcome of our discussion and refine your chosen design based on that.
Design – Stage 2
Again, we get back to work refining your chosen concept. We may need to go back and forth a couple of times at this stage to ensure all of the details are in place, but we try to keep them to a minimum. I want you to love your design when we’re finished, but also want to complete your project efficiently.
When we meet for final approval, we will go through the final design in detail and we ask that you take a very close look, checking for spelling mistakes and correct content. When you are happy with everything and are ready to send it to print, you will make the final payment.
Lastly, upon receipt of your final payment, we will send your print design to the printer. We will handle all of the print coordination, including proofing on your behalf. If you choose to be part of the proofing process, you are more than welcome. When we receive the printed pieces, we will either send them to you or call you to come and pick them up; whichever you prefer.
Printing costs and shipping are included in the fees will be listed in the proposal.
How much do the printed services cost?
Is the cost of printing included in the price?
Yes, we will get a quote from our trusted printers and include it in the initial proposal. We will decide together which option is best based on your budget, deadline and any specialty print finishes needed.
What is the turnaround time?
Generally, we can complete logos, business cards, letterhead, flyers, single-page restaurant menus, presentation folders and posters within 1 to 3 weeks, assuming we communicate with each other efficiently and we receive all content and images from you at the start of the project. Larger projects like multi-page brochures, book layouts and annual reports can take anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks to complete.
Do you do the printing as well?
We do not print in-house, but we have a few printing companies that we trust and have worked with for a long time. We are happy to handle all of the print coordination and proofing unless you request to do it yourself. You are more than welcome to take the final files, after full payment is made, to your own trusted print vendor if you prefer.
