The Unparalleled Act of Proofreading

As printers and designers, we look at materials very closely and for very long. So we might be inclined to notice typos a bit more than the average reader. Then again, if we notice them, others might as well (and we don’t want that!). There are many ways to simplify the daunting process of proofreading and ever more reasons as to why the process is crucial. At PRINTitGO our primary goal is, of course, to help your business grow (and [...]

The ABCs of Business Cards

Remember the iconic American Psycho business card scene? My theory is that they’re onto something. Business cards may be the first point of contact your customer has with your company. In fact, it’s not uncommon for a customer to see your business card before they see you. Scary thought, hey? It is and it isn’t.

We’ve designed and printed banners, business cards, bus ads, book covers, you name it. As your printer (and occasional designer!) we want to [...]

Colour Tips for Better Branding

If there’s one thing we’ve learned since our opening almost two years ago, it’s that 99% of the jobs we do are for business marketing purposes. If there’s one tip we can offer in return, it’s that good design is vital in creative marketing. While PRINTitGO does offer in-house design services, it never hurts to learn a bit about it, too, especially when it comes to simple colour schemes. There’s a psychology behind colour. For instance, yellow is associated with [...]
