Pop-ups and similar 3D Elements

It is a pleasant surprise when you open a card expecting a simple warm wish but you encounter a pop-up. This can be anything- balloon cut-outs, wrapped gift cut-outs, or even a cute dress or tie or another item of clothing. The use of pop-ups is only limited by your imagination as you can have anything that can be cut out take the place of the surprise within.

Another option is to simply stick forms and cut-outs onto a basic greeting card to enhance its look and give it an extra dimension. This may be on the front of the card and can be a flower bouquet or any other shape you can think of. These are images that could have been printed on the greeting card itself but when printed as a cut-out instead give the tactile edge. They also lift the focus design off of the surface of the card. These are a big hit for all age groups and for any happy or warm occasion you can think of.

A simple yet smart way to get perfection is to order die-cuts of your preferred pop-up item and find a way to stick it to your greeting cards. In this way, you leverage the unique beauty of handmade plus the perfection of professional printing to get a masterpiece. Greeting card-sending just got a serious upgrade!

3D lenticular greeting cards

This will blow your recipients’ minds away for sure. You can get three or four sharp pictures of something that will resonate with the person you want to send greeting cards to. In the hands of a professional printer’s desk, these can be merged to form a splendid image that will have a special meaning and a lovely effect on anyone who sees the cards.

Think of a beautiful rose in different stages of blooming. You can add a message implying the growth of your friendship and symbolized by the pretty flower. As the 3D Lenticular card is turned at different angles, it shows different forms of the same flower. You can imagine how delightful and out of the ordinary such a greeting card can be!

Special Finish Greeting Cards

Introduce the glamor and flash with greeting cards that have the diamond glitter finish. These will just ooze class and sophistication and will feel as good as they look. If you are sending the greeting cards for an anniversary or some other occasion, they ought to look the part. The extremely chic and attractive finish of diamond glitter will grab attention and keep it.

I am speaking from experience because the first diamond glitter card I received stayed in my mind for the longest time. It stood out from the rest of my birthday greeting cards effortlessly and exuded class in its simplicity. This inspired me to find the printers who had printed it and order my mom’s Christmas greeting card for that year as they were simply perfect for the occasion as well as the sentiment. She loved the card and said it made a great impression on her, and this came as no surprise.

Another special finish you could use is spot UV, or even raised spot UV. This makes the area you want to highlight stand out in a simple yet hard to ignore way. It also has a smooth texture and as the tactile bit is not left out you have an all-inclusive aspect to things.

Metallic foil finish on your greeting cards is yet another option that you could consider. It gives an undeniably classy look to your greeting cards. They will for sure not look like you simply picked them up at a convenience store and this counts when you are trying to share a sentiment with your greeting card.

So Many Options

When it comes to getting something unique for the special people in your life, you have endless options. Just make sure that you start to plan for your card early enough so there is time to have it made to perfection. In case of errors on your custom cards then you should have time to correct the issues and make someone’s special day even better for them!

Art is art, and it can be found practically anywhere if you just look. Posters are no exception to this and I believe that they wield a lot of power when it comes to decoration. This is why I’m writing today about the best poster designs by American Designers. Read on below to get some artistic inspiration for your next order of custom poster designs! Note that this article will refer to copyrighted works for the most part, and so I give all the credits where it’s due.

Cool Movies Poster Designs

Each and every one of us has come across a poster that was forever etched in their memories as really cool poster designs. For me, this has to be the poster for the all-time-favorite movie by John Travolta; Grease. Designed by Linda Fennimore in 1978, it captures the essence of simplicity is more. The colors are bright and pop; the bright reds and deep blues synchronizing perfectly against an off-white background. It instantly captures your attention and you find yourself immersed in its vibrancy. The main characters are cartoonised and this effectively silhouettes them perfectly against the unobtrusive background.

I find that these upbeat colors are the perfect accompaniment to the youthful romance musical. It perfectly embodies the spirit of the movie and you can tell by looking at this poster that the movie will have a festive mood. It sets the stage, so to speak, and I think that this is exactly what a successful movie poster needs to do.

Political Posters

James Montgomery Flagg gave us another iconic poster that I am sure a lot of us have come across. Easily recognizable from its red and blue color scheme to be patriotic poster designs, it bears the message: “I want you for US army”. The illustration of a stern ‘Uncle Sam’ calls anyone who sees the poster to action. The perfect blend of artwork and text is brought together by the perfect amount of white space. This poster is elegantly concise and you cannot help but to marvel at its perfection. I am sure that at the time of its creation, it inspired patriotism in a lot of the people who viewed it!

Marketing Poster Designs

The Trans World Airlines ran poster adverts in the 1960s created by David Klein. He made the iconic posters in a bid to help glamorize airline travel as it was still relatively new at the time. This worked, of course, aided by a lot of other factors such as aggressive campaigns and strategic marketing. To date, his posters still strike a familiar chord with those who came across them all those years ago. They are colorful and fun, and each bears a landmark of the destination of the flights. This made them popular because on top of being marketing materials, they were also art and they served both purposes seamlessly. Their vast success is what every marketer dreams of achieving with each project they undertake. This makes them a viable case study for budding illustrators and marketers alike.

Norman Rockwell is our final American designer. He gave us quite a number of iconic poster designs but this one of a father seemingly scolding his son is the one we will look at today. He made a lot of political posters but this one was more family-oriented. The colors make it gorgeously vintage and it is endearing if you want to bring a vintage vibe to your space.

When we get to election season and start to see vote for me posters of all kinds, we will be sure to remember the iconic American Designers who gave us some epic and patriotic gems. Black and white posters also have their own place as much as we have not included any in this brief write up. Elegant and chic, they will work perfectly with almost any color scheme so if you are stuck on what colors to settle for, go for this. In an evaluation of the effectiveness of posters in a medical lab dealing with a DNA databank by Objective Vanderbilt University Medical Center in 2007, 93% of the participants recalled seeing the posters placed in a waiting area of the facility. This goes to show just how effective posters are so if you have a message to pass or art you would like memorized, using custom posters is the way to go!

Die-cut printing meaning is a process that involves the mass production of shapes with similar dimensions using a variety of materials. A sharp steel blade is formed into a specific shape then cut through paper. A special machine is used for the cutting process to produce a crisp, smooth edge. Who uses a custom die-cut?

Textile and print industries use die-cutting equipment to produce products that are uniform and efficient. But die-cutting is not limited to these two industries.

·  You engage in efficient spending. Die cuts are not as expensive as you may think.  You get to produce multiple and similar cutouts at a go. What makes it less expensive? Only one tool is used to make the cuts plus less material is wasted.

The Core Die Cutting Elements

These are the core elements of die-cut design. Play your cards well and you can be sure of a brand that stands in the leading pack.

·     Die-cutting can be done in a variety of shapes depending on the targeted purpose. You can use these for postcards, invitations, or business cards.

·     Pay attention to the edges. This is what makes up the perimeter of your piece. You have three options. You can die-cut all, none, or some of your edges. Just don’t forget that fun shapes are everything. A scalloped edge is great too.

·     Make your images come alive with silhouettes. This is one way of creating pieces that make someone feel truly special. You can use these in custom calendars and bookmarks and just watch the image jump out.

·     Perforations. If your customer has to tear off the printed part then you can consider perforated cards.

·      Use windows to provide a view into something. These are great when you are printing a die-cut brochure or a booklet.

These core elements can be used decoratively or functionally. The aim is to spice up the norm.

Let’s face it. Things have really been down for small business people. The good thing about being down is that you only have one direction to go and that is up. You will have to repackage everything and enter the new norm. It will be even better if you already have a digital platform and are active on social media.

As a small business owner, my observation is that it would be good if you could introduce delivery services. You are not alone because many businesses globally have resorted to this, their size notwithstanding. Now going digital also means that people have to get what they see on your site. This brings us to packaging.

With the die-cut printing process, you can virtually create any kind of packaging. Now, this is true freedom and an opportunity for you to appeal to your customers’ senses. If you are a shoe store then why not have shoe packaging that looks like a shoe?

The finishing touch is also priceless. Go for something like die-cutting that resonates with your customers and leaves a positive impact. You can go with:

Embossing

The print is raised higher than the packaging surface. This works best with die-cut rigid boxes.

Hot stamping

This finishing technique is best for gluing dry paint into the desired shape. A die is used to transfer the heat. This finishing can be paired with embossing or debossing.

Die-cutting makes it possible to set high standards. It is also a method that ensures great accuracy when it comes to designing. The techniques, styles, and machines used provide you with the ability to diversify, rebrand, and engage with your customers. Wondering how to make die-cut business cards? At 4OVER4 we offer a wide variety of die-cutting services to make you move from the standardized level to a level where you make unique waves in your business.

Lastly, note that die-cutting can be combined with other printing treatments like matte, metallics, and gloss to make your products look exquisite. As always, we are happy to read your comments and contributions.

Conference badges help you to stand out and get noticed. Are you thinking how? Event conferences or conventions are where people or stakeholders with a common interest gather. The agenda could be about business, technology, academics, or industry. Now, how big are these conventions? Well, according to Statisca.com, in 2017, there were 250 convention centers in the United States. Over 30 percent of the largest conventions had over 2,500 attendees. This simply says that the number of persons who attend these events is high. Think of conferences as social networks that are not virtual but you still need to ensure your profile stands out. It all starts with conference badges.

Conference Event Badges-Its All About The Culture

Sending employees to event conferences is an important corporate culture. The conference badges design they have will be a clear indicator of their corporate culture They will be able to sharpen their skills but here are the main reasons why you should attend conferences.

1.       Networking with Conference Badges

Your network is your net worth. Conferences are full of like-minded people and you are surrounded by your industry peers. This is the only time you can interact with them without booking a flight or an appointment.

2.       Expanding knowledge

While you could have held onto one perspective, you might just discover that your 6 was a 9  all along. At such events you get to learn new techniques, different types of equipment,  new data or simply broaden your perspective thanks to the thought leaders present. You get the chance to talk and ask questions and your small idea gets significant attention that could make it viable.

3.       Meeting people

Day one you are just a number, day three you are the guy who asked a very difficult question and everyone is waving and saying hi. That is the power of event conferences and guess what? The publicity sticks with you and it grows. You might even sit down and have coffee with a prospective investor.

How To Design One Of A Kind Conference Badges Template

You could be wondering why did we start with the reasons why people attend event conferences and their stats. Well, if you are going to design conference badges that stand out then you will have to understand that design and purpose should always integrate. This is how a concept is actualized. You should also be able to fully discern the impact good conference badges has. Once you already know the purpose of an event and the opportunity that beckons then it is now time to understand the basic rules of name badges design.

The 10 Commandments Of Designing Conference Badges

“I’ve spoken at hundreds of conferences in the course of my career and the one thing that most of them have in common is crappy name badges.” Brian Fitzpatrick, former Googler, and regularly peeved conference presenter.

So you have a crappy badge and your networking skills aren’t helping either but you have to BADGE in. The average name badge won’t work. You need to start working with a designer and printer who understands the art of  choose a great conference badge template.

At 4OVER4, we abide by the following rules:

1.       The delegate’s first name should be displayed looking nice and big. This serves the purpose of boosting visibility and jogging memory. If you have read Dale Carnegie’s ‘ How To Win Friends and Influence People’ then you will understand that people love the sound of their name more than anything and you should, therefore, remember well. Nice and big means that 72pt is the bare minimum. The last name is large but it should not overshadow the first one.

2.       Legibility at 15 feet. The name badge should be legible even when the reader is four and a half meters away. That is why it so rude to shout names at a conference.

3.       A good conference badge design always has the element of starting conversations. As a designer, always ask the conveners of a conference to give you their three main agendas. Use these agendas to create an excuse for people to read each other’s badges. Make it interesting.

4.       Choose from a big conference badge size. The bigger the better 10 cm x 15 cm is the standard event badges size.

5.       Use a clear font so that the badge can be read at a glance.

6.       The badge should have the conference title and its logo.

7.       Conference badges should not be flip overs. Lanyards should work just fine.

8.       The badges should be adjustable and comfortable.

9.       Clear off some designs. This is not the time to be quirky. Practicality is everything.

10.   A good name badge is an investment. Treat it as such. Spend a little more and gain so much more.

11.   Include a hashtag. There’s no exaggerating the impact of a hashtag. Be sure to include both the company handles and event hashtags to encourage attendees to connect and spread the word.

12.   Add rounded corners. You wouldn’t think a rounded edge could make much of a difference. But with a sea of square event badges floating around, they will really catch the eye.

13.   Customize your lanyard. The badge carries a lot of weight. A personalized lanyard will only increase its impact. Custom printed lanyards are available for purchase at 4OVER4.COM.

We said 10 commandments but we just added the extra because at 4OVER4, our commitment to our readers goes beyond printing. Talk to us today on custom conference badges printing.

Most of the time we normally view product labels as something pasted on a product to make it look attractive. Well, that is just part of the function but premium health and beauty labels play a more crucial role. In this article, we will be focusing on beauty product labels, the role they play, and what we have to offer you as 4OVER4.

The Importance Of Premium Health and Beauty Labels

Labeling is a crucial part of marketing a product. The aim is to grab the customer’s attention and together with the packaging, the customer is wooed to take the product home. As I had mentioned before, labels are not just about good looks, they should also carry essential information.

Premium health and beauty labels should communicate how the product should be used, transported, stored, or disposed of. Labeling is also a subtle way of exaggerating the features of a product plus you can also use it for identification.

Have you ever wondered why some products are easier to find in the shopping aisles than others? It’s all about the labeling. Premium health and beauty labels are also a great way of informing your customers of the ingredients that you have used in making the product. Research shows that customers check the label before making a purchase.

You should note that as much as you exaggerate your product features, you should be truthful. Labeling means that you also release information on harmful products and who should not use the product.

The Common Premium Health and Beauty Labels Mistakes By Businesses

Kindly allow me to share some of the common mistakes business people make when labeling beauty products. I am highlighting them so that when we delve into the best labels for beauty products then everything will be crystal clear. These mistakes are in line with the current FDA regulations for cosmetic labeling unless future legislation changes what we already know.

#Including the ingredient name in the premium health and beauty product name

This is misbranding a product. According to the cosmetic labeling regulations, if a product name has a reference to a single ingredient and not all ingredients used in the product then the product has not been branded appropriately.

#Adding an ingredient listing when it is not required or vice versa

If you are making soap, there is no need to include ingredients list in your labels but because most soap makers have claims, a proper list of ingredients is recommended.

#Using the word ” and” in your ingredient listing

Figure out the predominant ingredients in your products. Do not choke your label with and because that is a sign that something doesn’t belong on the label. A multipart ingredient is not necessarily the main ingredient.

#Using the incorrect type size in premium health and beauty labels

When it comes to cosmetic labeling, there are rules. Different parts of your label require different measurements in terms of type size. In my opinion, this is just too much work for a beginner so just work with a professional printer.

#Not bolding the net weight

Weight information is everything so make it conspicuous. Do not use anything thin or ornate, weight information should be straight to the point.

#Leaving out the contact information

Customers will always want to reach out if there is a problem or improvement that they love about your product. You should therefore ensure that there are contact details available.

Best Labels For Beauty Products-An FDA Guide

Before you decide on the type of health and beauty labels you want, you should think about the shape and size of your product container. There are several common product containers in the market:

  1. Sprayers
  2. Jars
  3. Airless bottles
  4. Compacts
  5. Tubes
  6. Pumps

Each container calls for a different type of health and beauty labels and speaking of labels, what is there in the market for you?

  • Double-sided labels
  • Embossed labels
  • Hot foil stamped labels
  • Hang tags
  • Waterproof labels

Choose what is in sync with your brand or product

It is important that you also choose to work with a printer who can print product labels that will make you a force to reckon with in the market otherwise your efforts will be in vain. We have the digital printing technology that ensures that we offer our customers efficient print quality beauty product labels.

As much as beauty products should look good, they should also satisfy the regulations as stipulated by the FDA. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and in this case, it is FDA and the design you choose  so let us dive in.

The principal display panel. This is the part of a label that is mostly displayed. It is on the holding container. It should have an identity statement that indicates the nature and use of the product. You can go on fancy mode but just ensure that the information can be easily understood by the public.

You should also include net quantity information. This is an accurate statement of the content in terms of weight and any other measurements. The last bit of information is the warning for instance “Warning —The safety of this product has not been determined“.

Good Premium Health and Beauty Labels Feature

The next part of your premium health and beauty labels is the Information Panel, IP. A good product label has the following in its IP section:

  • Name and Location of business
  • Distributor statement. The premium health and beauty labels must say something like, Distributed by.. or Manufactured by/ for. It says manufactured for if the name and address are not those of the manufacturer.
  • Warning and Caution statements. Make these conspicuous. Mention if your product is hazardous or could be flammable.
  • Material facts. Do not mislead your customers. Let them know how the product is used.
  • Ingredient declaration. The declaration should not be less than 1/16 of an inch in height.
  • Ingredient name
  • Ingredient listing

Absolutely everybody enjoys receiving thanks for doing something deserving. This includes family, friends, and the people you have done business with. For the last group, what better way is there to show your appreciation than professional thank-you cards? Read on below to find out how to design the best thank you business cards for any occasion and see how to create a great relationship with your clients!

How to Make a Great Thank You Business Cards

There is a winning formula in making great thank you business cards, and we are about to go over this checklist. It is important to make sure that you get it all right because otherwise, you will miss the opportunity to make a great impression. Read on below if you are curious as to how to make a business card and try to work with these guidelines.

Ensuring to Leave Adequate White Space

The importance of white space can never be overrated, as I have written time and again. White space balances everything out and makes sure that the card looks good and professional. Crowding your card with lots of graphics and text will have them all fighting for attention and none will win. Make sure that you leave every bit of art enough room to shine and make an impact.

Choosing a Working Color Scheme

Make sure that you have a maximum of three colors on your thank you cards. If your logo is multicolored then find the two main colors on it and work with them. Simple is always better and so fewer colors will look great. One color will be the main one on which everything else is based, then the font can be another color, while the graphic if any can take the third and final color.

This is assuming that you will also work your logo into the thank you business card in order to keep your brand going.

Getting Good Graphics for Your Thank You Business Cards

You don’t want to do all the hard work only to tie everything up with pixelated images. If you have to take great photos to ensure uniqueness then do so. If you can find great stock photos that will match your brand then this would be the preferred option as it is more cost effective.

You need to confirm that your images are the right dimensions and working with a great printer will help you with this. This is because you can ask them to show you an online proof before you commit to printing the thank you business cards.

Picking a Good Font for Thank You Business Cards

As with all small size print items, use two fonts maximum to avoid your card looking disorganized. Have one font for the main information which may be ‘Thank You’. The second font can work for the message and any other information that you want to have on the cards. This will keep things simple and attractive, which is what you need your print communication to be for it to be a success.

I once saw some pretty thank you business cards that had the perfect card stock. It was heavy and felt nice to hold. The colors too were gorgeous and were in line with the brand. The fonts, however, left a lot to desire. The main font was an unofficial one and this was okay, but the message was in a different font and the business information in yet another differen
