Good Print Design
Clear And Concise Headlines
Good print design begins with short concise headlines. Most people will only grant you a glance of their time. So
be sure to get your message across.
Use Eye-Catching, Relevant Images.
You are looking for attention. So impress your audience visually, but stay on message.
Never use copyrighted images or low resolution images.
You don’t want legal problems or have resolution issues. Include clear, crisp photos in your print design with full legal rights may be attained from a large choice of online stock photo sites. Some are free. Try Googling “free stock photos” or “royalty free photos”.
Keep Your Message Simple.
Call to Action.
Ask them to stop by, call, text, email or click. Give your offer a deadline for a discount or bonus. So a good reminder is include your address, phone number and web address. Proof read everything twice, proof read these items three times.
Color In A Word – CMYK
What is cmyk? It stands for cyan, magenta, yellow and black, (I know black doesn’t begin with a “k”, but I am sure an artist came up with this not a wordsmith). Your choices are Grayscale, RGB or CMYK. Grayscale is for non-color projects, RGB is for web projects which brings us to the printer’s favorite cmyk. So set your Photoshop or Illustrator settings to SMYK.
Typography Is Important
Pick easy to read fonts and don’t mix too many. Consider size differentials or Invert white on black (or on any dark color ) this will often give your design or typography more strength.
Consider printing costs and quality.
