In my other life, I’m an editor. (When I’m not blogging. Or being a mom, that is.) I write about early childhood education, and since it’s a small company that I work for, I tend to wear lots of hats.
One of those includes designing their brochures and marketing materials.
So I’m familiar with the search that goes into finding a reliable printing company and always interested in what companies have to offer that is a little bit different, a little unique.
When Day 2 Day Printing contacted me to share what they had to offer in the way of online printing, I was happy to take a look!
And while I haven’t placed an order with them (yet), I’m definitely impressed with their selection. It’s not only business card printing that they offer, by the way. Day 2 Day Printing offers a full range of printed materials, both for the business consumer and for the occasional personal customer, as well.
Every item offers templates to work from, available in several different formats (InDesign, Photoshop, PDF and EPS), so you’re not starting from scratch. That makes your job quicker and easier and helps ensure that the end product will look exactly right.
I’m particularly interested in the bookmarks and the trading cards. Both are such fun (and unique!) ways to get your company name out there – or frankly, just for fun. You can even place order in smaller increments, so they could make a perfect wedding favor*. I would’ve loved personalized trading cards, though. My wheels are totally turning on ways to use those in future marketing!
*I may be a bit biased here. We gave out bookmarks at our wedding way back when. Ha!
Their business card templates offer some unique characteristics as well. You could use one side of the card as a coupon, for instance, so that potential customers can get started quickly. Day 2 Day Printing offers several different customizations to help your business card stand out from the rest: make yours magnetic or a sticker. Or choose a special “leaf” die cut or opt for rounded corners.
Remember, though… those cards don’t need to be all about business. I’ve heard some using them as “mom cards” – to help make connections with fellow moms on the playground. Or you could use them as allergy alert cards for your kids, if they need them. Or a change-of-address card for a recent move. What other uses can you think of?
And best yet…
