Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance

Digital Printing and Graphics is known for doing your printing projects same-day. If you need it today, we can get it done for you! But, that isn’t always the best formula for a successful project. It is not uncommon that mistakes are made when projects are done at the last minute (misspelled words, missing information, wrong phone numbers, folds in the wrong place, etc.) So, we preach the Five P’s.

If you know you will need printed material for a specific event or occasion, it’s a good idea to make a plan. Give us a call at 619-546-6008We are happy to help you determine what you will need and create a timeline and budget for your project.

We also understand that some things are due yesterday, and we want to be there to help you with your rush assignment. The key to this is to gather all the pieces you need, make sure all the information is correct and then get it to us as soon as possible.

As a first step, whether you want us to create artwork or your graphic artist will be doing it, write the copy. Type the text in MS Word. Don’t worry about fonts or size or how it will look. Just type the words. What do you want to say? What are you offering? What is important to mention? Include everything you want in your piece, address, phone numbers, everything. Allow enough time to proof your job thoroughly before printing. Ideally, you should also have someone proof it that did not type it.

For the next step, collect any photos, images, logos, etc. that you wish to use in your printed piece.  If they are less than 10 MB, you can email them to:  digitalprintingsd@gmail.com.  If the files are larger than 10 MB, you can put them on a thumb drive and bring it by, or upload them to our ftp site at: http://digitalprintingsd.com

When everything is ready, we will print a proof on the selected stock and trim it to size so that you have a sample of the final product. Look it over and once it’s perfect, we will print your job right away!
