Tecmark Stationery

At PrintDsign we offer a complete printing service, so can help companies large and small in all aspects of their print based requirements. Tecmark are a company based in Manchester specialising in digital marketing. We have carried out several projects for the one rate years including wall graphics and welcome signage at their main Piccadilly offices. We have also assisted with the creation of their stationery items. To get everything on brand PrintDsign were tasked with providing lithographically printed stationery items including business cards, compliment slips, letterheads, continuation sheets and A4 folders. All printed stationery items needed to showcase the companies chosen colours in exactly the same way on each item. So no matter the difference in paperweight or finishes, all colours had to match. This was not a problem, we offered the business cards and printed A4  folders with a matte finish and the other stationery items were printed on high quality  110gsm papers.


Curious – Wallpaper

We have worked with Cheshire based bridal shop The Case of the Curious Bride for several years now, we have worked with them to offer renewed shop signage, printed flyers, and lots of other print/signage products. On this occasion we supplied them with some bespoke patterned wall coverings for a large wedding fair they exhibited at in Manchester city centre.

Due to the supplied wall panels of the exhibition centre we could not offer a printed wall wrap or custom printed wallpaper for this project as it would not stick to the walls. So we created a faux wallpaper by printing the bespoke wallpaper pattern onto textured wallpaper and using velcro tape to hang it on the walls.

In addition to printing up the wall coverings we also created the bespoke wallpaper pattern using the companies logo and other subtle elements to give things a vintage look.

All in all the banner wall coverings worked well and helped create a sectioned off area for the bridal shop to exhibit in. And as a bonus the wall coverings are totally reusable on future exhibitions.

Double sided Flyers or single? – little price difference with twice the advertising space

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.

What is the difference between flyer paper thicknesses? ……. 150gsm? 250gsm?

GSM…. what is gsm? whenever you order flyers or leaflets this is always a bit of printing jargon that confuses. GSM means grams per square metre, it references the thickness of the paper that is used in our flyers.

At PrintDsign we offer a variety of paper thickness for our flyers and leaflets.

our current range includes

as you would expect the thicker the flyer, the higher the price, but our flyers prices are very competitive at prindsign, so the increases in cost per flyer is very minimal if you go up a paper thickness n your flyer order.

At PrintDsign we know design and printing very well so are always happy to give our 2 cents on what paper thickness works best for your needs.

for example if you need flyers for a short term event and are just effectively flyering then we would recommend 150gsm flyer for maybe something even lighter in paperweight. our 150gsm flyers are of great quality but due to the thickness (thinness) of the material they can be a little see through when printed double sided and as they are our cheapest flyer option, they do look it when compared to the rest of our printed flyer range.

if you are looking to create a folded flyer menu we would recommend going for a 150gsm or 250gsm paperweight. this thickness of flyer will fold well and becomes handy to put into a handbag or post through a letterbox. Going for a thicker flyer for a menu is just likely to make the flyer too rigid and harder for the user to keep once you have given it to them.

out 350gsm and 450gsm flyers are best for advertising a new company or launching a product. the extra thickness of the 350gsm flyer and 450gsm flyers over the 250gsm flyers mens that they are much more noticeable if they are posted (they make a noise when dropped through  letterbox) and if places in a magazine or newspaper the added thickness and rigidity makes the flyers appear more substantial. for example if the 450gsm flyer are placed inside a magazine they will be the first flyers to be be removed as the magazine will be hard to read with the flyers inserted.

the 450gsm flyers we offer at PrintDsign in Manchester are of a great quality and are great for promoting a new company or brand. the added thickness and high print quality creates a high end feeling flyer that customers will want to keep hold of.
