Designing Great Bookmarks

Bookmarks have been a perennial favorite among the book lovers. Some people have a real craze for collecting bookmarks. The best thing about bookmarks is that it allows the creative genius in you to roam freely. When designing bookmarks, you are fully free to experiment as bookmarks do not have a rigid restriction of do’s and don’ts. The more creative the bookmark, the better it is.

It is a reminder of your last reading place. Although, technically the job is simple but the creative managers tax their brain in making designs that leave you spellbound.

Fonts bring the writings to life. If you choose a beautiful font, the readers tend to get attracted and your design could be an instant hit. Like always, try and incorporate a catch line. Bookmarks generally have a single or double line written. Your try should be to make the line as catchy as possible as if you succeed in this front, you can be assured that half your job has been done.
