Calendar and diary printing – things to avoid
November 4, 2012 · Print This Article
When it comes to calendar and diary printing in Centurion, there are some mistakes that are hard to ignore. Here are the biggest things to avoid when getting your own calendars and diaries printed.
- Home printed calendarsIt may seem economical to just throw together a calendar on your computer and print out a few on your home printer, but as much as home printers have improved over the years, they will always produce unprofessional jobs that give the idea that you or your company are cheap. Avoid DIY jobs as much as possible.
- DIY design workJust as printing your calendars at home is a no-no, designing one yourself is not encouraged, unless of course you’re a designer by profession. What may seem fine to you will probably seem garish to the trained eye, so get professional help. It will go the extra mile to maintaining a professional image for you and your company.
- Spelling and grammatical errorsIf you are having calendars and diaries printed for your company, this is especially important. All text must be sub-edited and proofread to avoid terrible mishaps. Just one letter in the term “public holiday” could lead to some very inappropriate errors and cost a fortune to get re-printed.
- Inappropriate imagesWhen it comes to printed calendars, risqué images may seem like a good idea at first. But it will come across as tacky and tasteless. Choose images that are inspiring and beautiful, such as the work of a talented photographer or artist who is willing to provide you with artwork.
These are just some of the things you need to avoid when having diaries and calendars printed. When you are ready to order for 2013, contact your nearest Minuteman Press for reliable service and quality guaranteed.
