Country Wedding - Graphic Design - Creative Printing - Panama City, FloridaThere is not much sweeter than a country wedding! The creative team had so much fun helping Kristen Jackson, niece of owners Sheila and Steven Ruff, plan her perfect country wedding! The blue Mason jar logo was where it all began and the entire wedding was themed around it! A logo is not just for your business it can also be used to brand any special event. The bride-to-be also wanted to incorporate burlap and lace to her theme. The theme was carried out from the Save-the-Dates, to the Bridal Shower, the Wedding Invitation Stationary and even the favors. Having your theme carried out across the board can make even the simplest wedding seem high end without spending a ton of money.

Don’t waste your money on the typical wedding favors that will just get thrown away. For the Clark wedding we found custom printed double sided Mason jar glasses. They were a huge hit with the guest and if you have a bunch left over after the wedding you can use them at home! We also jazzed up the candy bar with a custom self-inking stamp used to customize the candy bags. Self-inking stamps come in many shapes, sizes, ink colors and almost any design can be made into a stamp!

To help the guest find the remote location we made direction signs that are weather proof. These signs could be made for any event! We also made a sign for one of the boys to carry down the aisle for that added a special touch as the bride walked down the aisle! Remember all of our designs are custom so we will design your sign just for your special event!

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.

Custom Printed Posters - Painting Of Steve By Roy Zenner - Creative Printing - Panama City, Florida

Printed posters are like the rainbow. The possibilities – and the colors – are unlimited. Everyone loves posters, particularly if they’re personalized. Posters are used for marketing, movies, and meetings. They find their way into children’s rooms, Dad’s den, or a teen’s strictly off-limits bedroom. Framed posters are present where writers speak, musicians play, and artists display their wares.

 
Personalized posters are created from treasured photographs. Remember that photo of your happy child at Disney World with Cinderella, Mickey, or Pluto? What a smile! How about that favorite fishing trip with those four great friends? Look at the size of that whopper! Maybe that picture you “photo-shopped” of your daughter and Johnny Depp would be a big surprise. And then, there are those photos of that enchanting place you visited on your last vacation.

Custom Printed Posters - Lillian Halstead Memorial - Creative Printing - Panama City, Florida


While we’re exploring poster possibilities, let’s not forget the family pet or a collage of pet pictures. And posters centered around family history, our revered war veteran, or that nerve-wracking high school football win of 1982, make memories come to life in a big poster way. Maybe the poster is a cherished quote with an attractive design, like that warm invitation from Grandma each time you entered her kitchen. It’s easy to get great ideas. Just look over those family photos.  We promise that your mind will be catalyzed with creativity!

So if you’re looking for a personalized, quick-turn-around, last-minute gift, we invite you to contact us at Creative Printing. We can customize your poster for that special person, place or promotion. Whether framed or tacked on the wall, a poster is a unique way to say: “I took the time to create something special, just for you.” And that’s why we’re Creative Printing.

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.

Previously in our series we introduced you to several promotional items for medical professionals. Now we look forward to sharing with you several promo items for the construction industry. By giving people items with your name on them, you are giving them a lasting reminder of your construction company.

     1.    Tape Measure

  • We all know that when working in the construction industry, tape measures are a must. Why not have your logo printed and pass them out at events or at the job site? This is a great way to get your name out in the community.

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.
 
At Creative Printing our friendly design team is here to help you! So when you’re ready to begin your design, come on in and let us help you Get Creative.

Tip 2: Keep it Simple

  • Determine your banners purpose, and then have a focal point.
  • Remember to use less text, fewer colors, and one main graphic. Too much information will confuse your customers and they won't remember the important information.
  • Don't forget to include contact information. Let the colors and graphics do the rest!

Tip 3: Location. Location. Location.

  • Your banners, posters, and signs are versatile and can be displayed inside or outside.</>
  • Want to refresh your office? Use banner to easily change up your wall décor. Now that's an easy way to have a fresh new look!
  • When flagging down traffic, it's important to have a large banner, 10-12 ft. from the ground.
  • Banners are a great way to get your customers attention! For pedestrian traffic display banners near eye level.
  • Be sure your banner is not obstructed; no one will take time to read it.
  • Remember, design and location of your banner will affect your sales when it comes to impulse shoppers. Approximately half of all sales are from impulse shoppers.

Tip 4: Advertise seasonal specials and set the mood

  • Banners, posters, signs and art prints are an inexpensive way to advertise seasonal specials, events, new products, and more.
  • Whether you're getting ready for a celebration or advertising a huge sale, the mood of your banner tells all.
  • Easily change the design of a room with creative signs, posters and banners for showers, birthdays, holiday parties ...
