Holiday Print Projects to Check Off Your To-Do List

Our South Kansas City Print Shop Can Help You Spread Good Cheer

If you’ve left your house even once in the past few weeks, then you’re probably hyper-aware that the winter holidays are upon us. There’s not a single store that we’ve personally visited that doesn’t already have a Christmas display or merchandise for sale. It’s then quite logical to say that it isn’t too early for you to get started on your holiday to-do list. With so much to achieve in just a few short weeks, you’ll need help accomplishing everything before December hits. Even if you don’t run a business - you’re just a person living in the south Kansas City area or Johnson County, Kansas - we are willing to bet there are a few things that our print shop, AlphaGraphics South Kansas City, can help you get done so you can move onto the next important task.

Custom-Printed Holiday Cards to Send to Friends and Family

If you’ve spent the last few years scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas cards or New Years greetings, then you already know how frustrating it is to not be able to find a design that is just right for you and your family, or that perfectly fits that socially-distant family porch portrait you took this summer. When you shop for custom greeting cards from these national websites, you also run the risk of selecting the same one as one of your friends or members of your extended family. Why? The most popular designs are also the most clever and most beautiful, and people order them in droves. And greeting cards from websites like these are not “custom,” no matter how much they try to assert that they are. If someone else can order the exact same card, just with the names changed, it is not at all a custom piece. Don’t fall for it. There are easier and more effective ways to order and send custom holiday cards, and support a local printing company at the same time. AlphaGraphics South Kansas City can help you design truly custom holiday greeting cards that no one else has. Your custom cards will reflect your family’s personality and stand out among the cookie-cutter ones everyone else sends.

Time-Saving Pre-Printed Gift Tags

Savvy, thrifty shoppers snag wrapping paper for Christmas immediately after the holiday, when all the remaining decor is on sale at the big box stores. You can get the most gorgeous, luxe wrapping paper for the price of the flimsy, cheesy kind - what a bargain! Unfortunately, it seems that gift wrap manufacturers don’t always produce self-adhesive gift tags that perfectly match the design of their wrapping paper. You end up with a sparkly penguin gift tag on a gift wrapped in embossed poinsettias. For perfectly wrapped gifts this year, order custom-made gift tags to complement your signature holiday style. You can even have the “from” line pre-printed with your name to save time as you frantically wrap gifts and get them under the tree before Christmas day. Who can help you with custom, pre-printed gift tags? AlphaGraphics South Kansas City, of course. We’re experts at printing custom labels, stickers, and decals in whatever size, shape, or color you’d like. You can even reorder a new supply through your agOnline account, which we’ll help you set up.

Holiday Magic Comes Alive with Custom Decorative Signs

Top-trending Christmas decor this year are felted gnomes with pointed stocking caps and long beards, snow-covered everything, and vintage brass or gold tones. If you can’t find decorative signs that fit with your home’s latest look, you can always have a piece custom made to complete your design. Clever signs can incorporate your decor theme, but also show off your personality when people visit your home (wearing masks, of course). If your favorite stores don’t have a sign that you love that also matches the rest of your decor, why not have one custom-made? Maybe you don’t want a red-and-green sign, but you do want one in blues and golds that says, “There’s gnome place like home for the holidays.” If you’re hosting out-of-town family members for Christmas, you may want to help them find your house among the rest in your subdivision. A cheery sign with your family’s surname, or one with your house numbers in a festive font hanging from your front door is a great way to decorate and serve a purpose. AlphaGraphics South Kansas City can not only print signs for you on an array of materials, but our full-time, on-site graphic designer can make them look perfect.

Custom Engagement Announcements Printed in Kansas City

Christmas and New Years are two of the top holidays during which many couples get engaged (Valentine’s Day excluded, of course). If you’ve agreed to tie the knot with your sweetheart, you’ll want to share your big news in a creative way: with a custom announcement or save-the-date card (or both). Just like you didn’t want cookie-cutter holiday cards, you don’t want the exact same announcement or save-the-date as half the rest of the newly-engaged couples. For a creative option that tells the story of your love, opt for a truly custom design, made especially for you, from AlphaGraphics South Kansas City.
