What Vistaprint Did To Our Design…
Do you have things to print but aren’t sure whether to get a huge printing corporation to print them or a local business?
There are many benefits that accompany printing with Nu expression (a local company) rather than Vistaprint. Recently, we designed a postcard for someone who had them printed at Vistaprint. We blurred out the text and covered up the logo in the pictures below for the sake of our client.
As any person would be able to see, the postcard that was printed through Vistaprint is distorted (stretched). The design Nu created had perfectly round circles incorporated into the design.
It also had high-quality pictures that were to scale. When Vistaprint got this file, they stretched it so it would fit on the size of the postcard the customer ordered. Although that may sound like the logical thing to do, from a design aspect IT IS NOT. Leaving all items the exact size they are and then leaving white-space or adding a colored background or border is the best route to go from a design to print standpoint.
Here are the advantages that come with printing through Nu:
1.Better Quality. Quality is obviously a major aspect of printed products. We have many different paper options to fit your needs. We will give our suggestion, based upon experience, on what type of paper will be best for the project you have at hand.
2. Real People that care about your business and the finished product. At Nu we find complete joy in a happy customer. We go the extra mile to ensure we are producing quality work for our customers. We always complete a digital or printed proof for our customers to approve the design. After the design is approved, we print out another proof to make sure it reaches our designer’s expectations for print quality. After it gets approved by the designer, then the complete order is printed. At Nu, if it’s not perfect for our customer, it will not be printed until it is!
3. Personal Relationships. We build personal relationships with our customers. We have a physical location where we meet with our customers to help create a design that represents who they are as an individual or business. We keep each customer’s design files in our system for years. This makes the process super simple if a customer needs to re-order something. Let’s say you have 1,000 business cards printed and it takes you two years to use them. All you have to do is give us a call; we will pull your design file from two years ago, make any necessary updates and easily reprint your order.
4. Professional Graphic Designers. Wouldn’t you rather meet with a professional Graphic Designer who can bring your vision to life rather than having to design your own work through a system of a commercial print company? If you answered yes to that question, Nu expression is the place for you. Our graphic designers can sit down with you and understand the vision you have and design a piece of work for you that’s awesome and stands out from the competition! You won’t have to sit at a computer screen for hours deciding which font looks best or which color option is best, we will handle all that for you!
5. We can do a variety of print projects for you and your business. Our business doesn’t just stop after the simple print jobs. We can handle anything from a small order of notepads, to designing a logo for your company, to designing a professional website for your company.
6. You will be supporting the Local Economy. We are a local company and take pride in staying local. We are individuals who truly care about our customers and who help customers’ visions come to life.
