We have carried out dozens of jobs over the years for Watersons Independent Estate Agents in Hale, Cheshire. On this occasion they required some branding to be added to their fleet of VW Up cars. They supplied PrintDsign with 3 identical white VW Ups and we added bespoke branding to all sides of the cars, allowing the Watersons Sales staff to advertise the company as they are driving to and from property viewings in the Cheshire areas.
how do you want your business to be perceived? that is the easiest way to decide what finish to have on your business card.
if your work is in the manual labour sector (builder, plasterer, plumber, etc) then a silk finish business card is best for you. it gives you the ability to write on it if needed and gives a own to earth feel when handed to a client.
if you are selling products from a shop then a gloss business card could be the best fit for you. the shiny finish gives a classy look and gloss finish business cards are getting rarer , so having PrintDsign make up a set of gloss business cards can make you more memorable to customers.
matte business cards are coming the norm now. the matte finish makes them easy to read and make whatever design is on them clearer. matte business cards to suitable for all businesses and this is one of the most popular business card style that we sell at PrintDsign.
velvet finish business cards to a relatively new product to printdsign but offer that extra wow factor that matte card had before they became so popular. the velvet finish of these business cards makes them very tactile and results in a lot of clients wanting to keep hold of them for longer.
our velvet business cards are best suited for companies who sell higher priced items and business services. interior designers, performance car dealers, fashion boutiques, etc
at PrintDsign we also sell plastic business cards. these are some of the most expensive business cards available but they offer the maximum in quality and longevity. clients will rarely throw away a plastic business card because it feels so expensive.
spot UV should also come into consideration when ordering a set of business cards. if the design you have chosen for your business cards could do with a little more fizz we can add a spot UV service to put al layer of gloss finish on top of sections of your design. when paired with a matte finish business card a section of spot UV can totally transform the overall look of your business card.
in addition to spot UV printing services we also have foiling available for some of our business cards. foiling allows us at printdsign manchester to add shiny silver or gold to sections of your business card design to give it that little something special that will raise it up above the business cards.
it really is down to how much info you want to advertise but at PrintDsign Manchester the price difference between our single sided flyer and our double sided flyers is very small. and if you go for a double sided flyer print you effectively get twice the advertising space on each flyer.
short term event flyers are after discarded one they are read, so duplicating your flyer design, and adding it to the reverse of your printed flyers will give the added bonus of the discarded flyers still advertising if they are left on the floor.
however if you are looking to use the flyers for business promotion and may need to give directions or information to your clients, a single sided flyer can become very useful. having the back of your flyers blank can give a great space to write additional and bespoke information for your customer, expanding your one-to-one dealing with each client and giving them a personal service.
Office branding doesn’t have to be limited to the internal office space, the same vinyl graphics we use for adding branding to walls can be used to brand up office doors and partitions. Here we have some very simple window graphics on the entrance doors of an office in Manchester City Centre. By adding the companies logo and branding to the front door they can now easily be found within the sea of other offices. The bold colours in the companies logo help to create an eye catching window graphic design that gives a strong presence.
These window graphics were installed on the glass door from the inside so they should last over 5 years without fading of peeling. The beauty of these simple window graphics means that they can easily be remove should the companies move offices and no longer require them.
Wall graphics are great for adding a little bit of personalisation to a home but they can work even better in commercial environments. Here we have a recent install of printed wall graphics at an office space in Manchester.
Using the companies existing logo and branding artwork from printed documents we have created a couple of feature walls to brighten up the modern office space. Not only do the wall graphics add more colour to the white walls but they help to boost the companies profile with both visitors and internal staff. For visitors to the office, wall graphics add presence to the office space and create a form of personalisation that makes a real impact. For the staff in the office the wall graphics can also have an impact on them, by adding the companies branding to the office walls the company looks more engaging and the office feels more like a creative place to work, not just some office, like any other one across the UK.
To create these wall graphics we arranged a meeting with the client, measured up the walls and discussed their ideas about what they wanted. after this we created visuals of the wall graphics using Photoshop and super-imposed the companies branding onto images of the blank walls. once agreed we printed up the wall graphics on self adhesive vinyls and applied them to the office walls. these wall graphics have an outdoor life of 5 years, so internally the should last much longer. Once the wall graphics have come to the end of their life they can simply be peeled of the office walls.
