Print Content That Fuels the Fire

Looking to upsell current clients or expand variety in the orders you receive?

Keep your marketing creative and your voice consistent with the wide range of superior content coming your way in the August editions of content from Marketing Ideas For Printers:

Printer’s Press

This issue highlights must-have conference promotional tools, an alarm clock that prompted a three-year treasure hunt, and the top 10 phobias of all time. The August Printer’s Press also brings a sanity-saving article on letting go of perfectionism:

“The opposite of perfection isn’t imperfection or mediocrity; it’s reality. It’s possibility. It’s all the magnificent points that exist all around the bull’s-eye. When psychologists suggest striving for excellence over striving for perfection, they are not trying to take away our ambitions, drive, and desires to succeed, they are trying to preserve our sanity and keep us in the game.” (Author & Psychologist Tamar E. Chansky)

Ideas Collection

Geometry is an integral part of design from start to finish.

Architects use geometry to divide space when generating schematic designs. Artists use repetitive sequences to create rich patterns. And design professionals use shapes, symbols, and symmetrical layouts that are balanced and visually stimulating.

This month’s Ideas Tip, added to every website provided by Marketing Ideas For Printers, teaches your clients to locate the diagonals and to use the rule of thirds to make their images more engaging.

Use these principles of proportion and symmetry to craft designs that are balanced, seamless, and striking.
