Design Tips

The following are suggestions to help you look your best every time!

Web site images

The upper image will print well. The lower will not.

Most website images are designed to take up very little space when they are sent electronically. These compressed images do not print very well.

Gang up print jobs

Combining print jobs can save you money. Don't print just one business card. Save them up and print several at once. You will save money. Everytime you can print multiple jobs at once using the same type of paper and similar output sizes, your printer will save money and he can share these savings with you. Prior to printing, a piece is laid out (imposed) to utilize as much of the press sheet as possible. Multiple copies of the piece will be squeezed onto a sheet. Due to the particular dimensions of a piece, often there is extra room on the press sheet. Instead of wasting paper that is paid for, it might be possible to use the extra space for another printed piece.

Web to Print

Web-to-Print offers significant savings in prepress, proofing and inventory control while improving workflow efficiency. Ask about tailoring web-based pricing, products, ordering, tracking, proofing, and much more, for your organization's specific needs.

DIrect Mail

If you are doing a mailing, print less and save money by setting aside time in the early phase of your project to update your mailing list. Remove unlikely respondents and duplicate addresses.

Ask Questions about Design and jobs

As every printer will tell you, each print job is unique. Talk to Dan early; don’t be afraid to ask about any potential prepress or production issues that can be avoided through better design.

Plan Projects

Nothing is truer than the old adage “haste makes waste” especially when it comes to printing. Rush jobs are charged an additional premium to accommodate rapid prepress, press time, fulfillment and mailing - try to avoid this!

Spell Check Spell Check Spell Check

It might seem silly to mention this, but many print cost overruns are due to press downtime or reprints that results from avoidable mistakes such as typos, incomplete sentences, bad dates, wrong captions, etc. So take a breath, slow down and review your piece carefully with the spell checker on and off. Or better yet, have several people in your organization not involved with the project look it over prior to submitting it for print.

Job Design reduces print costs

Design a Lower Cost Piece While Maintaining Brand Integrity

Printers use a particular stock of paper for their everyday printing that has proven itself to be the most versatile in printing and reliable on press. This stock is purchased in large quantities at substantial discounts which can be passed on to you. Inquire about printing your job on house stock and ask to see samples so you can evaluate how your piece will look on that paper. Paper comes in different weights which affect its durability and its opacity. Heavier basis weight sheets of the same type of paper costs more money. For example, printing on an 80# cover stock versus a 100# cover stock can save you up to 20% in paper costs. If you are not concerned with slight differences between printed pieces for a particular job, ask your printer to suggest alternative papers that may be appropriate for your job. Will any of the recipients of your newsletter notice that their paper is slightly different from others? If not, be flexible and allow the printer to substitute similar papers to keep your costs down.

Work with Your Printer

Talk to your printer about whether your job can be printed on a digital printer. digital presses can usually match offset’s printing quality, and can be more cost effective. For shorter runs, digital printing may cost less, allow personalization, require less complicated prepress and involve less waste. Digital printing is not be suited for certain jobs, however, particularly those requiring certain types of paper or Pantone color matches, so speak with Dan the Printing Man.

Keep Prepress Under Control

Prepress professionals at printers are responsible for ensuring that the electronic files that they receive from clients will print correctly on press. At prepress, client files are converted into a format that the press can read.

Much like a pilot performs a series of cross-checks before taking off into the sky, file creators should pre- flight their documents to be alerted to missing fonts, images, colors, incorrect color space and transparency issues prior to uploading their raw files to a printer. Many industry-standard page layout applications, such as Adobe InDesign and Quark XPress have such features. The ideal format for transferring digital files is the Adobe Portable Document File (PDF), but not all PDF formats are alike. File creators should save their files as a press-ready PDF to gain maximum time savings during the proofing process. When working with any printer for the first time, consult with a representative before sending your file(s) to make sure everyone is on the same "page".

Choose Your Printer Wisely

Having an on-going dialogue and relationship with your printer is the key to printing smarter within your budget. Here are some qualities you should look for in choosing your printing partner.

Not all printers are the same. Some, like Dan the Printing Man, offer graphic design, digital and offset printing, wide-format printing, binding and finishing, personalization, direct mailing and database management services in-house, while others subcontract part of their printing processes with outside vendors. Keeping your job in-house means more quality control, flexibility in meeting deadlines and lower cost. A little due-diligence on your part now may save you a bundle down the road. Ask for long-term client referrals to assess the quality of the printer’s work. Ask about the level of service they provide and their reliability history. Dan the Printing Man's clients know what a good printer does. A good printer asks questions and is concerned with your overall communication goals as well as your time and budget. A good printer is honest about what and when they can deliver. And a good printer takes the time to understand your objectives and to offer workflow, product or production solutions.

Personalized Print

Research has shown that when people receive something in the mail that has been personalized with their name, interests or lifestyle, they (not surprisingly) pay more attention to the piece. Though more expensive per piece to print, targeted print earns a much higher return on your print investment and makes print work harder. In fact, the U.S. Postal Service estimates that every dollar spent on direct marketing will return almost $12 in sales.
