How to Make Your Own Perfect Printables

Are you looking to create something beautiful for your home? Want to customize a holiday get together or give a loved one a truly personalized gift?  From customize gift ideas to wonderful home decor and wall art, everything becomes easy, fun, and inexpensive when you make your own printables.

How to make your own perfect printables

If you’re not sure how to create your own homemade printables, we put together a few steps so you can be well on your way to making fabulous and one-of-a-kind printables.

Choose the Right Design App

Creating DIY printables starts with having the right design program. You can find heaps of online design tools for creating beautiful graphics that don’t cost a dime. Canva is a popular web design tool that offers a range of easy-to-customize templates for just about any design you can imagine. PicMonkey is another free resource that can spice up your images with ease. If you would like completely custom design software, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator are perfect options, although they can be a little intimidating for beginners

Use Unique Typography

Typography can make the biggest difference between a good printable and an amazing printable. You will not want to print your favorite quote in comic sans and hang it on your wall. While there are a collection of free font resources out there, pick the ones that will make your printable standout. DaFont1001 Free Fonts and Font Squirrel have a huge variety of high-quality fonts that are not just easily downloadable but are also free for commercial use. Whether you need something elegant, vintage, handwritten or unusual fonts, these websites got you covered.

Take Advantage of Clip Art and Stock Photos

Sometimes coming up with your own design can take ages. So why not hop on Google and browse through some websites that offer useful and free clip arts. There’s a ton out there. A few websites that offer a myriad of stellar clip art include VectorStockClipart.com and Dreamstine. If you like to use Creative Commons image, CompfightPexels and Pxhere offer high-quality, professional-looking shots that can certainly make any printables eye-catching.

Pick a High-Quality Printer

Bring your well-crafted printable to life using a high-quality printer. If you already have your own printer at home, you’re in great shape. However, you must know that the type of printer you have can greatly affect the quality of your printable. If you want the colors to pop on the page, an inkjet printer is your best friend. Inkjet printers are great for photos and image-heavy documents as they blend colors smoothly. But you should note that a high-end inkjet printer can do much more wonders than low-end printers. So if you’re still on the lookout of a good printer, it’s worth paying a little more in exchange for higher quality.

How to Wow Clients with Printed Materials

Have you ever thought of impressing your clients in a unique and traditional way? We’re not talking about those electronic cards you send during their birthdays or surprising them with a promo code for their next online shopping spree. What we mean here is going the extra mile in the offline world so that they can feel more special. How to Wow Clients with Printed Materials

Sending customers a personalized card, customized wall art they can hang on their office, useful calendars, or even stationery with your company branding are all great ways to wow your customers with a physical item. Here are some ideas to help get you started in impressing your clients with your printed materials.

Greet Clients with Style

Introduce your business using a stunning photo. With so little time to catch your client’s attention, use only one image that is enough to make them stop and look at your printed material. Too many photos clutter the design and confuse the eye so think simple, clean and bold. And remember to use professional shot images whenever possible. If you don’t have updated company photos, use high-quality stock images that speak about your brand.

Keep Your Copy Short and Sweet

You only have 10 seconds to entice your clients to do business with you. So make the most of those 10 seconds by including only essential information in your printed promotional materials. Don’t forget to incorporate your character branding, tagline and business logo on every business card, flyer, magazine ad and any other marketing printout. This way, you’ll keep your brand on the minds of your customers.

Pick the Right Font

With a myriad of beautiful fonts out there, choosing the best one for your print marketing campaign proves challenging. Go for simple yet visually attractive fonts so they don’t steal the main message of the copy. Make sure to pick font sizes that are legible for a wide range of audience ages. The business name and headline should be large and bold. Use bigger font sizes to highlight essential information and smaller ones for the copy’s body.

Play with Colors

When it comes to colors, contrast is key. There should be a stark contrast between the color of the font and the background of the paper. While it’s always a good idea to work with a wider range of color, just keep in mind that the font color should stand out from the design’s background or the shade of paper you pick. As a rule of thumb, pair light font color with dark background colors and vice versa.

Personalize Gifts

Create an impact by giving them gifts with their names (and business name if they own one) in it. It will also be great to include your company’s name in it.  So every time they use your gift, they’ll be reminded of how you made them feel valued. Examples of gifts you can personalize are leather pad folio, penholders, diary, travel mugs and tote bags. Great low-budget and simple options include items such as notepads, sticky notes, desk calendars, and wall art – all of which can be branded with your company logo and printed right from your high-quality printer.

Use High-quality Materials

There’s no better way to get the attention of your clients than by using high-quality printing materials. Take note, you need to be a step ahead of your competitors so use first-rate ink and paper. This will surely make a world of difference. Your packaging should also be aesthetically pleasing. Of course, without a state-of-the-art printer, your well-crafted printed piece becomes useless.
