I kicked off my career as a print graphic designer, now with more than 25 years in the industry, I’ve designed all types of print media ranging from the basics like business cards to catalogs, packaging, newsletters & books, to large format print design for trade show booths and banners, etc. While the demand for print has changed over the years, print design is still very much an important part of what I do. Whether your business needs print design for an event like stickers or a brochure, business stationery, a presentation folder or something else, I’m here to help you make it the best it possibly can be.
What are some common print projects you do?
I design all sorts of print, but the most common requests I get these days are; business cards, letterhead & envelopes, brochures & rack cards, product catalogs, table tents, stickers, presentation folders, product packaging, food & wine labels, banners & posters, direct mail / postcards, and ads for magazines or other publications.
How does the pricing of print graphic design work?
Once I understand the job parameters, I'll provide you with a cost estimate for design, and for print if you desire. If the scope of the project changes, we'll discuss these changes with you then adjust the estimates if needed.
Who creates the content for my print design project?
This is an excellent question. The content of your print project may consist of page text, high-level messaging, and photography. We'll work with you to understand the type of content needed, then it's up to you if you'd like to hire an outside writer, write your own content, use stock photography and or hire a photographer. If you don't have time to find these resources, I can provide additional consulting to help find the best fit.
How does the design process work?
I'll work with you to determine the required specs, then present you with some ideas and a design draft as a digital file, usually a PDF. From the draft, we may end up making a few revisions which is perfectly normal. Once you're 100% happy with the design and sign off, we can go to print.
After the design is done, how is the print produced?
We can do this in a few ways. If you have a printer that you work with, I can package up the files and give them to you or send them directly to your printer. If you'd rather I handle the print manufacturing, I can provide this service to ensure the end result complements the design and is produced to the highest quality possible.
Do you only work with local businesses?
Nope, I've worked with clients all across the US and am happy to discuss your project regardless of where your company resides.
