Meet Leigh our newest employee at Creative Printing! Leigh has been in the printing business for over 20 years, since she was in high school! She says she has done it all from working in the dark room (back in the day), running the press, running score machine, cutters and everything in between!

Leigh is a great addition to our Creative Printing team with her abundance of knowledge in the printing business. With her southern charm Leigh works as a customer service representative, she also run’s the mail room, as well as many other tasks around the shop.

We want to share the difference and help you better understand so that you can decide along with your local print shop which is best for your print project.

Digital Printing – Is a toner based printing method using high-speed copiers. Copied Type Printing has had some major advancement since it was introduced in the early 80’s. The image quality from our modern machines is as good as offset printing.

Whether you are a business professionals or an individual, we have all had to make copies at some point or another, but have you ever thought about the wear and tear on your printer? If you are coping large quantities in house, then it typically more cost effective to go to your local print shop. It’s important to take into consideration employee time, the amount of toner/ink you’re using, and paper. Many businesses don’t realize how the cost adds up over time when coping in house.

So what kinds of copies are people making these days? Let’s take a look.

Is there a high school senior in your life? 

Chances are, they've already been given information about ordering expensive graduation announcements through their school. They might have a few options to choose from but one thing is certain: those announcements will look an awful lot like the announcements all their classmates will be sending out.

Why not make your senior's graduation truly special and get them a completely custom graduation announcement that not only shares the news of their graduation, but also includes their photo?

Creative Printing of Bay County - Panama City - Florida - Proof Print Jobs - ProofreadingYou've worked on a design with your graphic artist. You've decided whether your business cards should be matte or glossy. You've settled on the quantity of new brochures to order for your small business.
 
What's left?

Once the design and layout of your print job are finalized, you'll be asked to review a proof. A proof is a document or image that will show you exactly what your item will look like when it's printed. This is your last opportunity to change your mind about design elements and to check all the details to ensure there are no mistakes.
 
Here is what to look for when you review a printing proof:

  1. Check the colors. Make sure the colors you see are what you expected. Do the font and background colors coordinate with your company logo?
  2. Check the graphics. Make sure the correct, current version of your company logo is being used. If you've been thinking about redesigning your logo, consider doing that before ordering new print supplies that will soon be outdated.
  3. Check the text--including phone numbers and addresses. Your print professionals can help with colors and graphics, but they might not realize that your office phone number ends in 2354 rather than 2345. Check and double-check these important details.
  4. Take a step back and review the overall print job. Is it generally pleasing to the eye, interesting, and easy to read? Remember, this is your last chance to make any changes, so if you have reservations, now is the time to speak up.

What happens if there is an error or change needed on your printing proof?

Don't worry! We'll make the changes and create a new proof for your review. You'll have to sign off on all the changes and approve the proof before we proceed with the print job, giving you final control over what we print.

We understand budgets and deadlines. A careful review of your printing proof can save you both money and time, important resources for any small business.
