Mesh Banner material is a compact lattice of fibers, secured with a printable coating.  This material was designed to allow air to move through the banner, rather than having to force it’s way around it (which can damage and stress the hems and grommets).  This material is most useful on fences, or in areas where high winds are expected.  Because of it’s structure, Mesh Banners are lightweight and partially see-through, allowing them to shade, but not obstruct direct or reflected light.  This is all done without sacrificing longevity and durability.  Mesh banners will resist the fading effects of the UV rays from the sun, and keep your message loud and proud for years.

Banner Stands

Banner Stands are a quick and easy way to deploy your messaging on location.  They are free standing, requiring only a modest footprint of floor space, and collapse down to an easy to carry weighted stand that protects the print during transport.  Banner stands are simple to use, take up very little space and give you a command of your space at events.  Your design is printed onto vinyl banner material in high resolution and then installed into the banner stand.  It will be ready to deploy when and where you need it, and stores easily when you don’t.  Banner stands are useful for informative purposes, where you can put a lot of text and graphics, or just to display your logo and company colors and add flair to your booth or table.

Binding and Finishing

There are many ways to assemble and distribute your presentations; from stapled packets to perfect bound (soft cover) books, we have a variety of binding options to keep your printed materials looking sharp and professional.  Your final product is a reflection of you and we have a lot of options to fit your budget and ambition.

 

Staples are a low cost way to keep your materials presentable and together.  A collated, stapled packet tells your audience that you have the foresight to keep your materials in order and together and it keeps your media from becoming scattered.

 

Saddle Stitched Booklets are a great option for 8-56 page presentations or catalogs. We print your document onto large paper, then fold and staple along the spine of the booklet. The finished product is trimmed down to the finished size, finishing to a clean and compact look that has the feel of a book while staying inexpensive.

 

Comb binding or GBC plastic is a common binding method that will allow you to expand or replace pages as changes to your presentation are made.  They open to lay flat on flat surfaces and can accommodate up to 400 double sided sheets (800 pages).

 

Coil binding is a plastic spiral coil which is spun through a series of holes along the binding edge.  After it is bound, the ends are crimped to secure the content in place.  The largest coils can hold nearly a ream of paper (up to 460 double sided sheets), making it a suitable choice for large presentations or books.  The binding will open and lay flat on surfaces.

 

Wire-O binding is a thin, bent wire that crimps through holes drilled in the sheets, holding them together in a lightweight, professional bind.  While wire-o binding is more prone to damage, some customers like the clean, minimal structure and the ease that the pages turn.

 

Perfect binding is a form of binding that most people have held at one point or another, but that few know by name.  Paperback books, catalogs and graphic novels are typically perfect bound.  The inner pages of the book have a layer of glue applied to the spine, and then a cardstock cover is pressed into place. The book is then cut down to the finished size.  With a squared off spine and perfect, 90 degree corners the term perfect is very appropriate.  Perfect binding gives your work the highest level of professionalism.

 

Books

Books are often Perfect Bound; a form of binding that most people have held at one point or another, but that few know by name.  Paperback books, catalogs and graphic novels are typically perfect bound.  The inner pages of the book have a layer of glue applied to the spine, and then a cardstock cover is pressed into place. The book is then cut down to the finished size.  With a squared off spine and perfect, 90 degree corners the term perfect is very appropriate.  Perfect binding gives your work the highest level of professionalism.

Hardcover or coffee table books are available. Please call to discuss your specific requirements.

Brochures

One of the most common promotional and informational items is the brochure.  Brochures can range in size and number of panels, color and black and white onto a range of stocks.  Brochures break up the space on a sheet into manageable panels, allowing you to parse out your content into bite sized pieces for an orderly presentation.  This allows you to communicate your message to your customers one panel at a time, leading them from point to point in an orderly fashion without overwhelming them with all of the information at once.  Colorful graphics logos, maps and creative quotes can all weave together in the space of a single folded sheet to make your message resonate with your customers. 

Business cards 

Business cards are one printed piece everyone and every business needs. We design and print business cards that reflect your (or your company's) image in a consistently professional manner. Give your clients a great first impression with custom designed high quality business cards.

From black ink on white cardstock to full color, foil stamping or thermography (raised print), contact us or visit our Colorado Springs office and we will print you a great piece for that important first impression.

Calendars

Calendars are a fantastic way to put your brand in front of your customers and keep their eyes looking back at it for a whole year.  They are also a way to share cherished memories, inspiration, humor and information to your audience.  Assemble your pictures, choose your own holidays and we can design and print a year’s worth of content custom tailored to your vision and image.  Calendars are great for promotion, advertisement and to share personal memories with friends, customers and families.

We also have a variety of popular themed calendars with beautiful stock photography, ready for your branding.  This options is not only economical, but it bypasses the design process (and cost), ultimately delivering a quality product into your hands without any hassle.  Some of our pre-designed options are Reflections, Landscapes of America and American Scenic.

Canvas Prints

Canvas prints add a natural texture to any environment they are put in.  We print onto actual canvas, and can staple the print into a wooden frame, suitable to be hung on the wall or displayed in an easel.  You can even place the frame into your own decorative frame to give it a distinct look.  Because they are printed with latex inks, the colors will stay rich and vibrant for years of indoor use.  The printing process itself allows for crisp, high resolution graphics to go directly onto the canvas, without being distorted by the canvas fibers.

Catalogs

Sales often comes down to the right customer seeing something they need. Catalogs are a great way to net those customers with pages of products that you offer.  Binding options will vary by your page count, but a professionally made catalog of your products and services will help reach customers with things they may not even have known they wanted.  Assembled with colorful graphics and a catchy layout, our designers can help assemble knockout designs that will bring life into your sales and provide the necessary details to your clients. 

Diecut Vinyl

Standard adhesive or air release vinyl can be cut along mathematically precise lines and curves.  This process is called contour cutting, and it is done with an impressive level of geometric sophistication.  A sheet of vinyl is printed and then cut by a machine into letters or shapes.  This vinyl can then be applied to a surface (such as a window, car or counter) as a design element or as text.  You’ve likely seen die cut vinyl on the doors of most stores, where it shows the hours of operation, or has the name of the store on letters that seem to float on the surface of the glass.  

Die Cut vinyl is fade resistant and printed with latex inks.  It will stand up to just about any weather condition and will continue to look fantastic for years.  It’s not hard to remove when the time comes, and it won’t stain or leave residue behind.  Combined with printing onto the vinyl before cutting, die cut vinyl can make letters and shapes of any color or shape and spruce up any flat surface of your choosing.

Some level of preparation is required for successful application - call us for more details.

Door Hangers

Door hangers have a variety of uses.  Missed delivery, do not disturb, parking permits… whenever you need to leave a message on something like a door or the handle or a machine, door hangers will do the trick.  Made from a thicker stock of paper (or even polystyrene sheet), the door hanger has an opening and a small access channel cut into the material.  This allows you to put it onto a bar or doorknob with slight pressure, and will keep it in place.  Door hangers can come in a variety of colors, be printed with a lot of options and are inexpensive enough to deploy on a large scale.

Every Door Direct Mail

Every Door Direct Mail EDDM is a program designed by the post office to specifically target neighborhoods with your advertisements and promotional materials.  The post office has divided the country up into thousands of blocks, which are all served by a mail carrier.  By selecting certain blocks and then printing out the appropriate number of promotional materials, we can help you get one piece of your promotional items into every mailbox in that block.  That means that if you want to tailor your message to specific neighborhoods, we will make sure they all get it.

Envelopes

Correspondence to and from your customers is important.  Sometimes the difference between a letter being opened and a letter going straight into the trash is the look of the envelope.  Let us help you design and print your envelopes so that your professionalism is reflected in your envelopes.

Event Tickets

Event tickets are a great way to add a touch of professionalism and exclusivity to your event.  Provide your audience with a tangible symbol of their purchase; a symbol that they can hold onto as a keepsake.  We can help you produce tickets for your event.

Flags

Dye sublimated polyester is tough and scratch resistant, able to safely be washed and used again and again.  Your design is printed into the fibers permanently, then trimmed and stitched to fit into a variety of feather or pole flag configurations.  With a variety of shapes and hardware available, we can find the right flag for you.  All flags are 100% polyester and wrinkle free and are suitable for outdoor or indoor usage.    

Choose a flag for an eye catching way to advertise your message by using the wind to draw the eyes of your audience.  Available hardware options include a ground stake, a square base or a cross base with a water bag to weigh it down.  Let us know what your application is and we will help pair you with the right flag and hardware for your event or location.

Fliers

Event tickets are a great way to add a touch of professionalism and exclusivity to your event.  Provide your audience with a tangible symbol of their purchase; a symbol that they can hold onto as a keepsake.  We can help you produce tickets for your event.

Floor Graphics

Our FloorAppeal vinyl is perfect for temporary, semi permanent or permanent floor graphics. The adhesive is specifically tailored for the surface it will be applied to and won’t leave sticky residue on your carpets or tile floors. Vinyl floor graphics install with little preparation and are easy to remove.  The material itself has a non-skid surface that not only protects the design, but also prevents slips and falls.  Laminated with a heavy duty protective layer, FloorAppeal can take the punishment of high pedestrian foot traffic, and still make your message look good.

Letterhead

Our professional design staff can create your corporate or personal letterhead or stationary using your logo, or we can design a logo that fits with the image you would like to portray. Many paper options are available in a variety of colors and finishes. Some of the most popular papers for letterhead or stationary are Classic Crest, Classic Linen and Royal Fiber. Print letterhead in spot color or in digital full color to provide a professional look.

Magnets

Our 30mil magnetic media is perfect for easy auto installation; simply lay it on any metal surface and you’ve just increased your brand visibility and information.  Company vehicles can now be rolling billboards, sharing your contact information with everyone around them.  If properly affixed, our magnets grip hard in all weather conditions, and will hold tight in city and highway traffic.  Remove, reposition and replace these magnets at will, without any damage to your paint, or any residue.  Auto magnets also allow you to transition your vehicles from business to personal quickly.

Mailing

When you need to reach out to the homes of your target audience, consider a mailing.  There are many options, from packets of promotional material to mass marketing letters of personalized cards or postcards.  Mailings are useful for all kinds of events and time sensitive messages and can be tailored to fit any budget.  We can print, finish and assemble your materials, insert them into envelopes, address them from your spreadsheet or data set and then mail them out with stamps or a business mail indicia permit.  Big or small, we can mass produce your project and get them into the mailboxes of your customers or audience. 

Menus

Consolidate your services and offered items together into a single, organized menu for your customers.  Menus will help your customers find products and services that they might not have known you provide, and they will help you generate sales in fresh, new directions. 

We have a wide variety of styles that we can produce menus in.  From beautiful, full color prints onto synthetic paper that will take a lot of abuse to straightforward black and white prints onto inexpensive stocks for one use applications.  You might even consider your menu in a larger format, for display on site.

Our design staff can work with your designs, or create a customized layout that fits your aesthetic and content.  At any level, we can help your menu come into reality.

NCR / Carbonless Forms

NCR (No Carbon Required) forms are a great invention for on site workers who want a solution for forms.  Printed onto multiple sheets (parts), they transfer the writing from one page onto the next, which allows forms to be created in duplicate, or triplicate out in the field without having to re-write the information.  Before the invention of NCR, receipts and contracts would have to be filled out multiple times or would require the inconvenient carbon paper.

NCR forms have given on-site paperwork a shot in the arm simplifying complex documentation and allowing workers to leave an exact copy of receipts, quotes, estimates and copies of forms with customers while retaining a copy for their own records.  Stay on the same page with your customers and make sure that you have the same details, calculations, signatures and numbers that they do.

Notepads

Notepads are an effective way to get your brand out to your audience in a format that they are likely to keep and use.  Just like calendars, notepads are one of the few branded products that your audience is likely to keep and use for a long period of time.  This puts your logo and contact information in their line of sight for much longer than many other forms of advertisement and promotion.  Notepads are something that your audience is likely to want and be happy to take.

We can make notepads in just about any size or thickness with any stock you might want.  Print in black or in color, the possibilities are vast.

We have a number of different sizes and layouts with a palette of options that will accommodate your materials; from business card slits and pockets to CD slits all on a range of papers and laminates in your choice of colors.  Give your customers a complete package of organized printed materials, all contained in an attractive package.

Canvas prints add a natural texture to any environment they are put in.  We print onto actual canvas, and can staple the print into a wooden frame, suitable to be hung on the wall or displayed on an easel.  You can even place the frame into your own decorative frame to give it a distinct look.  Because they are printed with latex inks, the colors will stay rich and vibrant for years of indoor use.  The printing process itself allows for crisp, high resolution graphics to go directly onto the canvas without being distorted by the canvas fibers.

Trade Show Displays

Events, conventions, festivals and conferences are all excellent opportunities to raise awareness of your brand and services, and experienced event planners know that making a good first impression is half the battle.  Establishing a professional image and “looking the look” conveys your competence and reliability to your customers just as much -or even more than- the actual work you do.  These days, you need to sell customers on your brand first and then prove that they made the right choice through your service.  So, when you go to an event to interface with the public, it is crucial that you put your best foot forward.

Window Graphics

A window, windshield or sheet of glass is an opportunity to impart a message on everyone who can see it.  We have a number of methods to utilize this space in a tasteful and attractive way to spread your brand and message.

 

Cut vinyl is an adhesive vinyl that is printed and cut to specific shapes and letters that can be put on your window, creating a floating effect with the letters and elements of your choosing.  This is an excellent option for store hours or sharing any other message where you want people to be able to see through the window around the elements.

 

Window Perf is usually applied to the entirety of a glass surface.  This adhesive vinyl has small holes punched in it.  The perforated effect is interesting and can be extremely useful.  From outside during the day, the viewer really only sees the printed design.  At night, an outside viewer can dimly see the lights inside.  From the inside looking out, the glass appears to have a slight tint to it.  This material does not hinder your ability to look out and it turns your windows into a billboard for your designs.

Coroplast is ideal as temporary signage where a lightweight and weatherproof material is needed.

 

A Frame Signs

Installing signage on concrete is a snap with our plastic A-Frame signage.  Hinged at the top, our A frames will collapse flat for easy transport and storage, and are easy to deploy in front of stores, along walkways and on any flat surface.  With 2 slots for 24” x 36” coroplast sheets, you have the versatility to have the same message on both sides, or different messages - you can even print on both sides of the coroplast, giving you many more combination options.  As information changes and you have new messages you want to share, all you’ll need to do is get replacement inserts and you can continue with a fresh look.  Add sand to the hollow base for added wind resistance.
