When you need large volumes of high-quality printing, finding a print shop to work with is often the best way to get the results you need. Modern print shops use presses and digital printing methods to produce consistent prints, ensuring that every copy you receive is the same high-quality print as the first.
Design and Layout
Many print shops offer design assistance so that if you have an idea but are having trouble with the actual design, a graphic artist working in the print shop can sit down with you and help. The designer may offer you some specific ideas to take your design to the next level and produce a final product that conveys the message or portraits what you were after.
A print shop designer will be best suited to help create a project that will stand out and look very professional, from small projects like business cards to large promotional posters or flyers. There can be an additional cost for some of the services, so check with the print shop to see if they can help you with design and what it will cost.
Common Print Shop Products
You may need help with many different products, and your local print shop might be the perfect solution. Small businesses that are just getting started often need things like signs for their business, flyers to promote the business around town, and business cards to give to potential clients.
A good print shop can help with all of these, and if creating prints that are all similar is important to you or your business, talk to the print shop owner about that. It is sometimes hard to print an image or logo the same on several different media, but the printer should be able to make suggestions for color or design changes that can make that easier while retaining the professional look you are after.
Often, changing from a full-color print for a flyer to a black and white print on colored papers, can result in a cleaner print. Additionally, if you are set on a specific design, the print shop may suggest using a different media like poster board instead of paper or heavy paper stock that will not absorb the ink the same way and keep the print looking crips and clean. The paper or media change may cost more, but it may be worth the extra expense if the print quality is retained.
