My Personal Logo Design


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.

Wholesale Brochures and Flyers


Color Trade Print offers Wholesale Brochures and Flyers to our Clients at an unbeatable Wholesale price. Brochures and Flyers are great Marketing tools for any company. The added expense of using brochures is sometimes intimidating to businesses and it can keep them from using such a great marketing tool.  The key to using brochures is picking the right design and the right format. Bi-fold, tri-fold, or single page flyer…. Whichever you choose, make sure it fits what you’re advertising.  Remember, style and content are the most important part of the brochure and flyer. Here are some things that you will need to consider when creating a brochure or flyer:

  • Your message to the Consumer needs to be Clear. You need to make sure that it is clear what message the brochure is promoting. If you are selling entertainment services for weddings, birthdays, or retirement parties, make sure that it’s targeted to that market.
  •  Focus on the service that you are trying to push and list the others as secondary, so that your brochure is not too busy or confusing. Too much going on in one brochure won’t keep anyone’s attention for too long.
  • Keep the content and design simple. Use “easy on the eyes” colors that relate to or reflect that of your business or logo.
  • Try to avoid stock images and try to use actual pictures of your products or services. Even of your own employees.
  • Make the personal connection between you and the customer.
  • Explain how you are set apart from your competition

With the right brochure or flyer design, you can really use this marketing tool to your advantage. Our team of Graphic Designers are available to assist you in creating that perfect brochure or flyer.

Wholesale Inline Foil Business Cards from Color Trade Print


Making money by reselling basic business services can be extremely lucrative in the right circumstances; after all, nearly everyone uses them.  That’s why wholesale foil cards should definitely be on the menu of any design professional who works at directly reselling, or any sales or marketing person who is supported by trade print shopsand works at reselling.

Wholesale foil cards are particularly good services for resale because they represent the best of both worlds; wholesale foil cards obviously have a premium finishing option, but since they are purchased wholesale, much of the pricing concern is alleviated at the same time, making it a great product for those who develop a relationship with a trade print shop to actually print their cards.

Another big benefit of reselling wholesale foil cards is that if you work in design, you will likely amass a relatively impressive product portfolio quite quickly; people don’t spend the extra money on wholesale foil cards unless they have a premium design they are intending to showcase to people.  This means that after you’ve resold wholesale foil cards for a while, you’ll have a great portfolio full of some top-end design work that you can rightfully claim a hand in having developed.

Embossing and Debossing with ColorTradePrint


Embossing and Debossing with Wholesale Printer

Although Embossing and Debossing are very similar printing processes, they create a different result. Both of these processes involve pressing paper into relief using heat and force. The process involves the use of two metal dies, a raised counter-die and a recessed die. The raised die forces the paper stock into the recessed die to create the impression. Embossing creates a raised impression and debossing creates a depressed impression.

There are a couple of things you need to remember when designing for a piece that includes embossing or debossing:

Set your type with more space between the letters than usual. When putting letters too close to one another it will merge the letters to for one element once the embossing has been done. Embossing also makes design elements look smaller and can reduce the clarity of smaller items.


Be aware that embossing is a mechanical process that manipulates the paper stock, and by default, it may also manipulate your design.

Ink, foil, paper stock, and die are key elements to creating an embossed or debossed product. Given the number of variables, it is best to consult with a knowledgeable Color Trade Print representative to ensure that you are ordering exactly what you need.

What is Trade Printing?

Clor Trade Print-wholesale- printing company

If you’ve heard the phrase ‘trade printing’, and aren’t quite sure what it is; we’ve got answers for you.  Trade printing is the name of a specific business model adopted by companies which engage in the physical production of printed products.  They offer their production services directly to those involved in other aspects of the industry, and related industries.

Many of their clients are print brokers, freelance artists or graphic designers, advertising or marketing agencies, or even other print shops. They focus on attracting their clients through offering wholesale prices which can be significantly lower than other businesses are able to offer.

The way they are able to achieve such low pricing levels is because their business has basically decided to completely forego certain aspects and functions that other businesses engage in.  For example, they may not have a customer service department, or even a sales force.

Being so specialized in the physical production of the goods, and little else, lets them keep trade printing prices low, and secures their share of the market.  Trade printing operations can be great ways to cut costs and save money for those in the industry, so if you have significant printing expense, look into some trade printing vendors.
