In today’s economy, one thing stands out: save, save, save. Every business is experiencing cut-backs or budget cuts in all areas, and if you’re and entrepreneur or a freelancer you are probably doing the same thing – finding ways to maximize. Business cards or personal cards are just things that need to get printed in order to get more customers.
It occurs to me, that a great gift for these friends is a photo album, or a set of photos from all the things that you’ve done with each other this year- or even, since you first met. You start looking through old photos, and print them out as an album; or even send them a package with loose photos for them to arrange.
It seems like there’s a constant movement towards greener initiatives, and the printing industry is not left behind. However, there’s a notion that business cards have to have superior paper quality and superior rigidity to reflect how professional a business is. This of course, is not true at all. Many businesses have started using recycled or uncoated paper to produce their business cards; and they still make it work!
for alternative-gifting why not consider gifting books this year? Although, books do come from trees, the experience of reading from a book is something that is unmatched. And if you have children, nieces, and nephews that have not yet developed a reading habit- books could be a great gift. They would be a much better option than a set of socks, however fuzzy they are.

Green printing is about taking all printing to a greener level. With paper, inks and the whole process involved. When you use recycled paper, you are assured that it’s not virgin paper- a new tree did not have to cut down for it. Another option is using uncoated paper which allows makes your printed product 100% recyclable- don’t worry about contributing to landfills, with uncoated paper, it is reprocessed to be used again.

Well not to lessen a graphic designers trade, getting great designs is not as hard as it may seem. If you’re wondering how they get such great effects on their posters or banners, the answer is quite simple: Photoshop Brushes!
Trade Shows are so busy, that it is quite hard to stand out if you don’t have the proper tools.
Each booth implements a different design and different ways to catch the audience’s attention. As a Trade Show participant, this is a great opportunity for you to network, and acquire a large number of potential clients; of course, for this to happen, it is absolutely necessary to implement the adequate visual tools to attract them.
As a business, kiosks are extremely convenient and a great option for a start-up. Clearly I am not referring to franchise businesses, but rather a business of your own.
The typography and measurements of a poster or large format print should be calculated for an adequate visualization; things such as distance, and the velocity in which the potential observer is traveling should be taken into account.
As a graphic designer one of the more challenging feats is attracting customers. There are two mediums to achieve this: a web based portfolio and a physical portfolio.
When working on these aspects, there should be an open promotion to all the people within the organization.
