Flyer Printing - Culligan Water - Creative Printing - Panama City, FloridaWant to improve your quality of life? Everyone does. So this month the Small Business Spotlight is on Culligan Water because they have some terrific ways to put quality into your life. And, they’re located right here in Panama City. At Culligan Water, they’re experts at making you feel better and making your home more enjoyable. And as a Panama City business, they’ve been doing so for over 55 years.

How do they do it?  Through their high-end, cost-effective treatment systems that convert your hard water problems into luxurious, clean, soft water solutions.

Feeling Better All Over

One way to be kind to yourself is through soft water, because soft water is kind to your skin and hair. And when you feel skin deep comfortable, you’ve taken a step forward toward enjoying life.

Less Work; More Fun

Another benefit of soft water is less household toil because soft water keeps things clean. Minerals such as calcium and iron make cleaning bathrooms a lot of work. Soft water solves the problem and really reduces the toil of bathroom maintenance. In addition, the folks at Culligan can get any sulfur out of your water. Sulfur-free water doesn’t smell and tastes better. Finally, soft water leaves your clothes brighter and cleaner.

Let’s Raise a Glass to Our Culligan Partner

Finally, there’s nothing better than a cool, clean glass of water, especially during that warm Florida summer. And Culligan has the answer. Their bottled water, delivered to your business or home, is the final touch for improving your quality of life. We have enjoyed drinking their refreshing water for many years.

Graphic Design is everywhere! We see it on street signs, billboards, television, online, in restaurant menus, business cards, books, and many other places. Graphic design combines text and images in a creative manner in order to reach a particular audience visually. They make things “look pretty” in order to grab the target audiences’ attention.

A logo is not just something that is visually appealing it is creating a brand and communicating what a company is/does without much needed explanation. The first stages do not involve much designing at all, but more so research.

Graphic designers create visual materials that effectively communicate information for advertising, publications, movies, posters, signs, websites and many more. They use a creative process that combines art and technology to efficiently communicate ideas. The designer works with a variety of communication tools in order to express a message from a client to a particular audience.

In today’s technology driven world, a Graphic Designer is a “must have” for a business. Most people do not use the phone book to look up your number or address anymore. They go straight to Google via their phone, tablet or computer. Graphic designers help your brand stand out; whether it is on paper or online.

Do you ever wonder what type of paper you should use for your CREATIVE PRINT PROJECTS? Often people do not realize how many choices they have available. Then when it is time to choose, the many varieties of paper can be overwhelming. What color? What finish? What style? Paper selection can make a huge impact on your print project whether it is for yourself, your family, or your business.

Do you ever look at a sign going down the road and think, “That is too much”? The key to designing signs, business cards, etc. is to make them stand out and not look too busy.

The less you use in designing the better. You want people to read your signs and cards.
 
Let's take a look at some Tips to show how less is more in Graphic Design.
 
  1. Often people think that every area of white space has to be filled. This is not the case. White space is okay!
  2. Don’t use too many effects. This will take away from the message you are trying to give.
  3. Avoid using more than 3 fonts per design. This will make your design look unprofessional and busy.
  4. Don’t choose a font just because you think it is cool. Be sure it goes with the theme and is the right height so that it is visible.

  5. Avoid using too much information. If there is too much, potential customers will skip it all together. The less that is on your card or sign the more it attracts attention to your main points.
  6. When using graphics or pictures, make sure they look professional and only use one or two. Too many will make your design too busy.
  7. It’s important to have a focal point, something that draws your eye and then everything should flow out from there. You want your eyes to move to all parts of your design.
  8. When aligning your text, don’t feel like it has to be centered. Left or right justified looks more professional.
  9. Remember when choosing your colors, that different colors affect the way you feel.
  10. The best way to ensure that your text will be clear at a long distance is to use a high contrast color, such as White on Black.  Blue on Green is more difficult to see from a distance.

     11.   When choosing colors for your company logo or any design project, it's important to look at the color wheel. You don't want to choose colors that are beside each other. Choose colors that are across from one another, so that they stand out and better.

     12.    One more important tip to remember is to trust your graphic designer! Their skills and experience will bring your images to reality. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
 
As you see there are many factors to consider when designing your company logo, business cards, signs and more.

Business cards are the most important marketing tool that your company uses. They are often the first representative of your business and easily the one that sticks around the longest. How can you make sure that your business cards are doing everything they can to promote your business in a positive way?
 
Here's what you need to know:

1. Go with the pros. Running a small business on a budget--or starting a new business from scratch--might require some creative financial planning, but don't skimp on business cards. DIY cards look cheap and make your potential clients think you don't care about the details. Hire a professional printing company to print your business cards, and show your clients that you're serious about your business.

2. Short and sweet. Don't try to write a novel on your business cards. Only include the information that is actually pertinent, such as company name, your name, basic contact information including your e-mail address and website.
 
3. Don't be cute. Every small business owner wants their business cards to be memorable, to stand out from the crowd. Don't try to do this by being cutesy with your business cards. This means no knock-knock jokes and no cartoon characters (unless you happen to be in the cartoon business). Instead, stand out by using a sharp design and textured paper. Or, if you're really feeling adventurous, consider something really out-of-the-box like a structural aspect, like this business card with tear-tabs:

Or these clear plastic business cards:

4. Use a smart design. The design of your business cards should be appropriate for your business. If you run a landscaping business, don't put wine glasses on your business cards. Choose graphics and layouts because they represent your business, not because they're your favorite color or because they remind you of your favorite vacation spot.
 
5. Catch the typos. Handing out typo-ridden business cards is a death sentence for your marketing efforts. Be sure to check and double-check spelling of names and especially addresses and phone numbers. And if you get a new number or your website URL changes, it's time to get new cardsand toss your old ones in the recycling bin.
