New to flyer design? Good flyer design is uncomplicated. In fact, with a few tips, most beginners can create effective flyer designs that have a real effect on their business. Here are some tips, courtesy of My1Stop.com, to help you develop flyers that say, “READ ME”.Keep your design simple. You can do this by building your design out of “boxes” Great flyer printing relies on just three kinds of boxes; “claim”, “support” and “action”. Keep your style light. To keep your flyer printing style light, stay away from using huge text and graphics. Limit your color choices to black and one accent color. The accent color is the one you use in your claim and action boxes. Use simple, clean fonts – and no more than two in throughout the flyer. Keep images small and placed close to – or inside of – your proof boxes. My1Stop.com is the flyer printing superstore. Every day, we exceed our customers’ needs for flyer printing solutions that get noticed. Please visit us online or call, today.

Choosing the right commercial printing company really is pretty simple. The check list below is based on responses from customers who shared why they selected My1Stop.com as their commercial printing company.
Said another way, product breath means lots of commercial printing products – available from a single source. Commercial printing companies who offer lots of products provide you the benefits of one-stop-shopping from a vendor that you know and trust. Of course, the commercial printing company has to offer great service, competitive pricing and a 100% satisfaction guarantee!
The more options available for a commercial printing product, the more depth the supplier has. The benefit of product depth is what unique, trend setting and innovative products grow out of. Commercial printing suppliers who offer product depth, keep your marketing materials – and campaigns – fresh, active and effective.
Ease Of Ordering
Do you prefer to get pricing and order online, or do you prefer “live” help? Maybe you prefer e-mail or chats to get info and place orders. The right commercial printing partner will do business with you in any of these ways – on your terms. Keep looking until you find the commercial printing company that will work the way you want them to.
Last – but not least – work with a commercial printing company that guarantees their work. How they phrase their guarantee is important, of course, but more important is how well they back up their guarantee – whatever it is! Make sure you know your commercial printing partner’s guarantee and be certain that will back it up for you.
That’s it. Commercial printing vendors are everywhere – but there’s probably only one who’s right for you!
New sizes. Multiple pockets. Variable printing. DVD slits. These are just some of the latest trends in presentation folder printing. At My1Stop.com we see these and other presentation folder printing trends taking off in a big way as our customers look to differentiate themselves – in a time when a first and lasting impressions have never been more valuable.
The newest presentation folder printing size is a jumbo 9” x 14.5”. This format really stands out in crowd – and provides ample room for uniquely sized pocket inserts. To get the most out every inch, budget minded marketers are ordering presentation folder printing with pockets on both sides – not just the left or right. Using two pockets provides space for more media at a very low cost. When it comes to media, the trend is to have pockets slit to size for DVD or CD inserts. For great suppliers, this is typically at no additional charge.
Digital printing or custom presentation folders has opened the personalization opportunities – in a big way – for custom presentation folder printing. At a low per folder cost, you can personalize or number each folder you order. That’s a trend that adds real value to your presentations.
Oh yeah, and “Foil and Embossed” is back – and never more trendy. With a variety of foil and folder colors, creating a unique look for your custom presentation folders has never been easier.
So, join the trend! It’s never been easier to make a lasting impression with presentation folder printing.
At least once a week, I take a look at the custom poster printing orders we have ready to print. I am always amazed by the variety of creative ideas and applications I see from My1Stop.com custom poster printing customers. I’d thought I’d share some of the more creative ideas I’ve seen – to help our poster printing customers with new ideas.
A very creative approach I’ve seen a lot of lately is in the use of variable data in custom poster printing projects. Using variable data, our customers are able to create multiple versions of the same basic artwork – without the costs and hassles of printing multiple lots. Here’s a recent example. Our customer was holding 60 sales meetings for their franchises across the country. They planned on using custom poster printing for each location and for each day’s events. In all, they needed the same theme on all 540- 11 x 17” posters, each with different breakout session speakers, times and dates. In the past, our customer would have printed their posters one-off on wide format inkjet – at a big cost. But, by getting creative with variable printing, our customer got all of their custom poster printing done in one single order. Talk about cost and time savings. Wow.
Unusual sizes and shapes are two other creative approaches we’ve seen a lot of in custom poster printing. Many graphic designers will use unusual sizes and unique shapes to draw more attention to the poster and the message. In addition to our three standard custom poster printing sizes (11” x 17”, 18” x 24” and 24” x 36”) we can also print almost any size. In fact, we can even cut to unique shapes. If you’re thinking about unique shapes or sizes, be sure to add a bit of time and cost to your custom poster printing project.
If getting creative with custom poster printing is a struggle for you, don’t panic! Just get some help – from an experienced customer service team or a professional design services staff.
We see all kinds of flyer printing designs – everyday. Some of the flyers stand out more than others, of course. I’ve noted some memorable examples of flyers printed by My1Stop.com in the list below. Using one or more of these flyer printing ideas can definitely make your flyers more memorable.
Unique Flyer Printing Design Examples
Use nothing but text. Create a big, bold simple message covering 2/3rds of your flyer printing for a memorable flyer effect. Add your contact info in 11pt type at the bottom – under the big, bold message. For better results, make your big bold message a call to action, like “BUY THIS HOUSE FOR $1500 A MONTH”.
Try reverse text on the entire flyer – or at least in the key message areas. Create your design with a solid color background and print all of the text in white. This reverse print effect draws more attention than black on white – so use an eye catching, contrasting color for your background. Red with white type will get you lots of attention – so will darker hues of lime green and orange.
Use a non-traditional size like 8.5” x 14” or 11” x 17”. These unique sizes will help your flyer printing stand out from the crowd. Remember, though, keep your design simple. Avoid the temptation to add a ton of content because you have more room than on the standard 8.5” x11” flyers. Keep your message simple to create the most memorable flyer printing possible.
