GRAPHIC DESIGN: FORM AND FUNCTION

Graphic design isn’t just about color and layout; it’s about drawing the eye and enticing action. Quality design will persuade potential customers to see things from your perspective. You only have a few seconds to impress … is your business making the right impression?

 

When potential customers visit your website or open your brochure, are you telling your story in an appealing way? Effective design is a critical component for effective marketing. By crafting balanced, well-designed materials, your business conveys a powerful message: “trust us, we know what we’re doing.” Customers are much more likely to make a purchase from a company they trust.

 

GETTING STARTED

During your graphic design consultation, we’ll gather important details about your campaign goals.

BE PREPARED TO ANSWER QUESTIONS LIKE:

  • What is the project medium and dimensions?
  • Who is your audience?
  • What message are you trying to convey?
  • How can we create a consistent look and feel across multiple channels?
  • What is your budget and deadline?
  • What are your brand requirements?

GRAPHIC FILE HELP

The key to a successful print is a good digital file. To create a good file, your image (sent as a .pdf) should have crops and bleeds, if your image needs them. The file's colors should be set up as either CMYK, if it's running digitally or in Pantone colors, if it's running off-set.

If your files aren't in ready-to-print condition, our knowledgeable staff are here to help.

FROM SCRATCH

If you are starting from scratch, we have designers ready to help you. Call or email to set up a meeting with a sales representative, who can help you begin the conversation about your design.

Graphic design services cost $85/hour, with the first hour of consultation free.

Call in or request a quote and we can estimate the time required for your project.

EDITS

Maybe your document needs a tweak or two before printing. Send us your file and we can help. Native files are preferred, but often we can work from a .pdf file.

GRAPHIC DESIGN HELP IN WALTHAM

Some of our customers provide us with  business card, brochure, poster or other design files ready to print. If you need extra help with your design, our graphic design service bills at an hourly rate. If we just need a few minutes to get your job properly set up, we charge a portion of our rate. For many people, it's well worth the price to save the headache. We're experts, after all, and you don't have to be.

PRINTING JARGON

If you want to turn over your job smoothly, you can check to be sure your job has a few critical elements. Crop marks are used to trim the piece to its final size, and bleeds are needed if the design has a color or a photo that prints along the edge. A little bit of photo or design "bleeds" off the side(s) of the piece so when it's trimmed, it appears to stop at the edge.
