Here’s an inspirational story about five candles that I hope you will enjoy.

There were once five candles that burned brightly day in and out. The first candle of enthusiasm got bored one day and decided it was pointless to keep burning, so it got extinguished.

Seeing the candle of enthusiasm go dark, the second candle of courage lost its will and went out, too.

The third candle of peace thought, “Without enthusiasm and courage, I feel abandoned and lonely,” so its flame also faded away.

The fourth candle of prosperity was sad after its friends were extinguished. He didn’t think there was any point staying lit without enthusiasm, courage, or peace, so his light went out, too.

Only one candle remained burning. Although it was the smallest candle, its flame was still burning brightly. A girl came along and was joyous to find the lone candle burning. Feeling gratitude, she picked up the candle of hope and lit the other four candles with it.

Here’s the way I see it: Hope is being able to see that there is light, despite all of the darkness. May your candle of hope keep burning strong, and continue to brighten your days to come.

Love Your Planet with Eco-Friendly Print Practices
ECO-PRINT LOVE

409-grassy-globe.jpg

As technology has progressed, so has the need to reduce waste.

Sustainable solutions are not new to our industry, and environmentally-friendly practices are something to greatly value. Design, first and foremost, is concerned with solving problems, and that includes the way we partner with you to create sustainable print solutions for the future.

Here are a few real-life of examples of how you can reduce your environmental impact with your print project:

1. Paper Preferences

Want to reduce your personal or corporate waste? The range of paper options has substantially increased in recent years. From recycled wood pulp to “tree-free” papers (made from bamboo, sugarcane, and mango, to name a few), you can now choose from an array of possibilities. If you are interested in knowing more about recycled paper options, we’d be happy to share them with you.

2. Ink Selection

As companies have worked to create eco-friendly products, printing processes and types of ink have been part of that experiment. Non-toxic toners and both soy and vegetable-based inks have matured in quality, continuing to improve in saturation, density, and brilliance. A 2005 Earth Day ad perfectly demonstrated this message, speaking out against chlorine-processed paper on an exceptional-quality poster that employed soy-based inks and recycled paper.

3. Products and Packaging

Environmental improvements in print also include finishes and packaging techniques. Consider simple options for reducing waste, increasing the longevity of a product, or using organic materials to reduce your footprint.

For example, adhesive labels offer you an efficient method for delivering product information without coating an entire packaging surface. Hangtags (versus boxes or containers) significantly reduce the quantity of disposed material you produce. Biodegradable or 100 percent recycled materials can be used for boxes, bags, and more. Even the choice to print a fold-over flyer (versus traditional letter and envelope format) can reduce unnecessary waste.

Keep the Creativity Flowing

While we don’t know for sure what the future holds, everyday choices can make a collective impact. Remember, you can make a difference, even in your design and print decisions!

Marketing Tip
Put Google Alerts to Work for Your Business
AUTOMATED UPDATES BY EMAIL OR WEB FEED

Google Alerts is a free online service that can help support your marketing strategy and give your organization a competitive edge. Google Alerts can be used to monitor your own company online, as well as gather ideas for content marketing, stay current on industry trends or news stories, and help you keep an eye on what’s new with your competition and key customers.

Google Alerts allow you to receive automated updates by email or web feed of the latest relevant Google results available regarding topics or keywords you choose.

To create your own Google Alerts, visit www.google.com/alerts. Make sure you’re logged in with a Google account. Enter unique keywords that you want to monitor, such as a business name or topic. If you are searching for a phrase or set of words, use quotes (such as “Grand Opening Denver”) to ensure your words will be searched together as a phrase. To make your alerts more effective, avoid generic or common keywords. You may also consider including common misspellings of your business name or keywords.

Google Alerts can also help you stay aware of compliments or complaints. For example, create alerts that include your company name and keywords, such as “company name + terrible” or “company name + amazing.”

Select the type of results you are looking for (news, blogs, videos, discussions, groups, or everything) and choose how often you want to receive notifications (as it happens, once a day, or once a week).

Mini Envelopes
SOMETIMES GOOD THINGS COME IN SMALL PACKAGES

Sometimes good things come in small packages. Mini envelopes are a great example! Not only can mini envelopes be custom designed for any use, but they also feature a wide variety of colors, sizes, paper choices, and finishing touches.

Mini envelopes are the perfect size for gift cards, wedding placeholders, name cards, business cards, thank you notes, gift tags, key cards, and other small items. They can also be used to keep track of small items, such as jewelry repairs or collectible coins and postage stamps, or as a discrete way to give donations and gratuities.

While mini envelopes are adorable, keep in mind that not all envelope sizes are mailable via USPS guidelines. Please let us know if you have questions or would like help creating the perfect mini envelope for your organization. And remember, while other printers may be nearby, nobody comes close.
