The 16-Point Wholesale Postcards

C1S Wholesale Postcards

The 16-Point Wholesale Postcard is Printed on Thick High Quality Card Stock. The 16-Point C1S Postcards have a Glossy Finish on one side and an uncoated finish one the back side. The uncoated side can be used to run through another printer for labeling or customization if needed. Wholesale Postcards are also printed on C1S Stocks so the uncoated side can be easily addresses by hand or desktop printers.

Because the front is glossy and the back is not, keep in mind that the back side of your Wholesale Postcards will not completely match the front side in regards to brightness and ink saturation.  You can also select a Hi-Gloss UV Coating for the front of the card to provide vibrancy and pop.

If you are asking yourself ,“What in the heck does 16-Points mean to you?”, you are asking yourself a very good question. It has to do with the thickness of the paper. The number is the measure of the “caliper”.

CALIPER: The thickness of a sheet of paper, usually expressed in thousandths of an inch (points of mils). Example: .016” thickness = 16 pt. Caliper.

Color Trade Print also offers a great service to our clients that print their Postcards with us. This service is the Every Door Direct Mailing Service. If you would like to get more information on our Mailing EDDM please contact us at info@colortradeprint.com or (800) 915-6436.

When added to a full color printed Silk business card, spot UV adds a very dramatic effect and makes the piece stand out from the boring business card genre. When the Light hits the card the areas you choose to be Spot Glossed will stand out from the rest of the Silk Card.

metal-business-card-die cut

Does your Wholesale Business Cards need more Zing?

Well, here are some ways to create a Business Card that will be unique and impressive.

#1:  Rounded Corners- Having all or some of the corners on your business card rounded can make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of your cards.

#2:  Magnets-Making magnets out of your business cards are a way to create a useful product with your contact information. And they are more likely to be stuck on the fridge and less likely to be tossed in the trash.

#3:  Folded Cards- Folded cards let you stand them up like a table tent on an exhibit or display, and you can make them mini brochures with additional information about your company or services.

#4: Mini Cards- Mini cards are business cards that are smaller than the standard size. This can make the cards stand out, yet those receiving them can still stick them in their pocket or stack them with other business cards.

#5: Die Cut- Business cards in a different shape can be especially memorable. You can try something as simple as a circular card or create a custom shape.

#6: Rip Cards- Rip cards are traditionally used as door hangers or rack cards with a tear-off piece at the bottom that can be a coupon or business card. But you can create your own rip cards in business card size. Use it for a tear-off basic HTML cheat sheet, a hex code color table, or even a list of resource sites for your clients. You can do this by using the back of your cards, too.

#7: Plastic- For a stand-out card, try a clear plastic design. Not only are they creative and different than most other cards, but they are extremely durable.

#8: Recycled- Recycled cards are a great way to lessen your carbon footprint while creating a unique image for your business. There are a lot of options out there from recycled paper, to soy-based ink, to reused paper and materials.

There are so many ways to create a card that will leave a lasting impression. A Color Trade Print Representative is available to help you in the decision process.

My Personal Logo Design

download

Color Trade Print offers a Great New Program for our clients.

My Personal Designer is a brand new program that connects you with the designer directly!

Your Personal Designer will creatively and visually create your companies Logo and Branding.

At Color Trade Print, we believe that the right logo and branding will lead to a successful company. There is a lot of thought that goes into creating the right Logo. Before designing a logo you must understand what it is, what it represents, and what it’s supposed to do.

A logo is not just a mark – A logo reflects a business’ commercial brand via the use of shape, color, and/or images.

A logo is an inspiring trust, recognition, and admiration for a company or product and it is our job as designers to create a logo and do its job… and do it well!

Now you know what a logo is supposed to do, and what it should represent… all you need to do now is make one!

The Basic Rules of Effective Logo Design:

     1. A logo must be simple -A simple Logo Design allows the logo to be versatile and memorable at the same time. Logos that spark the most interest feature something unexpected or unique without being overdrawn.

2.  A logo must be memorable -Following closely behind the principle of simplicity, is that of something memorable. An effective logo design should be memorable and this is achieved by having a simple, yet appropriate logo design.

3.  A logo must be timeless -An effective logo should stand the test of time. Will the logo be effective 10, 20, 50 years?

4.  A logo must be versatile -An effective logo will work across a broad spectrum of mediums and applications. For this reason a logo should be designed in Vector format, to ensure that it can be scaled to any size.

5.  A logo must be appropriate -How you position the logo should be appropriate for its intended purpose. For example, if you are designing a logo for a kids clothing line, it would be appropriate to use a childish font and color scheme. However, the same would not be true if you’re designing a logo for a law firm.

 Your Personal Designer will create several logos for you to choose from.  This is a very fun and exciting time for you and we want to make this process as easy as possible.

Our graphic designer experts are not limited to the designs they can created.  If you need a professional logo design or general graphics, they can handle any job.

The innovative, professional graphic design will enhance your brand identity and achieve your marketing and promotional goals. Your logo is the window to your brand. Our experienced logo designers will be tailored to attract your audience as well as reflect what you do and who you are.
