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.

Ideas for Effective Poster Design

Effective Poster Design

Though digital media appears to have taken over numerous aspects of modern business, a well-designed poster can still make quite an impact. Putting up a poster in a public transit hub can maximize your brand’s exposure and ultimately help boost your bottom line. However, a poorly designed posted may have the opposite effect. Here are a few pieces of advice to keep in mind when designing an elegant poster for your organization:

Keep It Simple
Though you may have a lot you want to say to your customers, it’s best if you keep your message fairly simple. After all, not many people will look at your poster for longer than 10 seconds. Instead of advertising several products, consider conveying one clever concept that will draw viewers in and make them curious about your business. Make sure your company’s logo and website are prominently displayed on the poster.  

Know Your Audience
Knowing your audience is important for designing an attractive poster and for general business success. You probably have a decent idea of which demographics your customer base represents. For your poster to be effective, make sure it appeals to these groups, or at least doesn’t alienate them. You can always create a poster design that appeals to new demographics—just don’t forsake your current loyal customers in the process.

Mind the Competition
Most of your business decisions should be made with your competition in mind, and designing a poster is no exception. Make sure your proposed poster designs aren’t too similar to those of your competition, or else you might risk looking like a copycat. A poster is also a good opportunity to poke fun at your competition—just make sure you aren’t infringing on any of their copyright material.
