Essential Tips for Your Business Card Design

Business cards templates

If you want to be successful at networking and pitching your services, then a good business card is a must. Business cards are small, but their importance isn’t. A great card will help you stand out in a crowd and draw new customers to your door. A less-than-thrilling design will lead to you getting lost in the shuffle. Everything from the quality of your paper to the quality of your printing counts when it comes to business cards. Here is what you need to know.

Choose Paper Wisely
A flimsy business card sends the wrong message about your business. Skip low-quality paper and get your cards printed on stock. Heavier stock is always better—it communicates that your business is solid and professional. Of course, the heavier the stock, the more expensive it is. Talk to your printing company about the types of stock they offer and get their recommendations. An experienced printer can help you balance quality and budget.

Select the Right Content
It’s tempting to cram your business card full of information about your qualifications and services, but it is best to streamline the content on your card. Overfilling your card with information will make it difficult to read. White space is a good thing in card design, so use it. Stick to the basics, like your name, company name, position, and contact information. Social media handles are also acceptable in some cases. 

Stick to Company Colors
Business cards don’t have to be plain white or beige, but try to choose colors that complement your brand. If you’re set on a specific color that doesn’t match your company’s look, incorporate that color as an accent alongside selections from your company’s branding palette.

It’s also important not to skimp on the printing of your cards. Get professional-quality digital printing at Replica San Diego for all of your needs, from business cards to posters. We offer quality digital printing and copying for jobs both large and small. Call our San Diego printing shop today at (858) 457-9500 to learn more about our services.

A Look at How Color Laser Printers Work

Color Laser Printers

Color laser printing quickly creates crisp visual images with vibrant colors. Laser printing is a great choice for everything from flyers to folders. If you’re a business owner, then you know how valuable laser printing can be when you’re creating your marketing materials, but did you ever wonder how laser printers work?

With most laser printers, each page runs through the printer four times—one time each to print black, yellow, cyan, and magenta. The printer utilizes different combinations of these colors to create shades and tones. With some printers, each color has its own toner and developing unit, while other printers work by applying color to plates and then transferring it to the paper. Still other color laser printers have a separate printer unit for each color.

When you need color printing, turn to Replica San Diego. No printing job is too large or too small for our commercial printing store. Find out more about our services by calling (858) 457-9500.


A Look at Your Document Binding Options

Document Binding Options at Replica San Diego

When you print a book or report for your business, the binding is the finishing touch. Even the most vibrant color printing job won’t save a document from looking sloppy if you don’t bind it correctly. At Replica San Diego, we offer a range of binding options for your printed materials, so you can select the perfect one for your project. Here is a look at some of your choices.

Coil/Spiral Bind
This kind of binding makes your report look much like a notebook. It is ideal for large reports because it always lies flat. Because it is flat when it is opened, it is also good for projects in which people may need to take notes. Spiral binding works well when your project is an odd size. This is the most popular type of binding because it works well for so many different types of projects.

VeloBind
If you want your project to look like a book, choose VeloBind. VeloBind uses hard, plastic edges to keep your project intact. Lawyers and financial officers most often use this kind of binding. The reason VeloBind is so popular for things like legal briefs and financial reports is that it makes documents easy to file and mail and because it is difficult to tamper with. Removing pages from a Velo-bound project is hard to do, and the missing pages will be easy to spot.

Tape Bind
If you’re looking for a simple kind of binding, choose a tape bind. Cloth adhesive tape holds papers together. Tape binds are popular for things like lab manuals. Note that with this binding, the project won’t lay flat when you open it. Tape binding only requires one step, so it is a great choice when you have a pressing deadline.

When you’re ready to have your project printed, discuss all of your binding options with Replica San Diego. We can help with all of your commercial printing needs, including color copies, poster printing, and more. You can find out more by calling our San Diego store at (858) 457-9500.


Design Ideas for Your Business Logo

Design Ideas for Your Business Logo

Your business logo is your company’s calling card, so designing one that stands out is crucial. Remember that your logo will go on all of the marketing materials that you print, so it should be one that easily translates to a variety of different items, from your business cards to your signage. Your logo should also look good in both black and white and color printing. As you go to work on your logo, here are some design ideas to keep in mind.

Incorporate Your Name
There are some abstract company logos that are very effective—think of Nike’s swoosh—but these are few and far between. If you’re just building your business, having a logo that doesn’t incorporate your name or the name of your product means you will have to spend additional money educating people about the image. Including your company’s name in your logo gives it extra power as a promotional tool.

Keep It Simple
It can be tempting to develop an intricate logo design, but remember that your image needs to be functional above all else. Simple, easy-to-read logos are more effective than ones that are aesthetically pleasing but bury your company’s name. In addition, complex logos don’t translate well to printing, particularly on very small or very large items. Your logo won’t serve its purpose if it is difficult to read.

Leave It Alone
Once your logo is designed, don’t make changes. If you change your logo, you are essentially starting your marketing campaign over from scratch. The cost of re-educating your customers about your new brand identity will outweigh the benefits you reap from your logo overhaul. Changing your logo can also have negative effects on brand perception, as happened to Tropicana. The company lost a fifth of their sales within weeks of redesigning their logo.

When your logo is ready, let Replica San Diego handle all of your black and white or color printing jobs. We do poster printing, color copies, digital printing, and more. For pricing or information about our printing work, please call (858) 457-9500.
