Custom Design and Post/Print

Custom Design

I am an experienced writer, editor, and graphic designer who provides custom design services that include:

  • Logo Development or clean-up (vectorization for clean rescaling)
  • Tag line development
  • Fine-tuned colour selections
  • Attention to fine detail

Printing

I perform in-house custom design and I am a print reseller for reasonable-cost, fast-print vendors offering full four-colour printing on one or two sides of 14 pt heavy card C2S bright white paper with a semi-gloss coating which helps resist abrasion and aging. Typical print products include art posters, art prints, annual reports, book covers, high-quality print advertising, picture postcards, and business cards.

Business Cards

Custom Design and Print special:  1 hour of custom design service and printing of 1000 1 side or 2-sided + AQ 14 pt, cut to size (3.5″ x 2″) and boxed. Recommendation:  2-sided card, using the second side for either a QR Code for use with smartphones, or for service and product details.
