Tips & Tricks

Two Colors vs. Four Colors

Some four color objects can be closely rendered in two colors. The savings is dramatic at low production volumes. At the 1000 piece level, a two color flier is about 40% of the cost of a four color flier.

We have the technical expertise to recognize these opportunities and then manipulate the images to execute the concept.

Using Standard Sizes and Colors

Sometimes a custom size and a custom mixed color are essential to the project. But great savings can be achieved if a little flexibility is allowed.

Shown here is an example of a label in a custom color and size, and the label in a standard color and size. The custom label is over three times more expensive than the standard label.

Photo Retouching

The effective use of pictures can help you sell your product or service.

But even a professional product photographer can fail to bring out the details that are important to your product. In this example, the photographer worked hard to capture the detail in the keys without eliminating the light color of the body. As a result, the key numbers look like they are painted on, rather than lit from behind. Complex retouching makes the photographer's work look even better.
