Being profitable starts with a whole lot of people noticing your message.

The challenge though, is to get your solution-to-their-problem ahead of existing distractions; larger cell phone, a job, their kids, and of course your competitors. This gives you mere seconds to get their attention.

From business cards to flyers, coffee mugs to T-shirts, my Collateral Design & Copywriting process gives your marketing strategy that spark it needs to get everyone excited about finding your Website, physical store or event.

Otherwise they're just looking for the nearest trash can.

Marketing collateral is the printed material you pass out to inform potential customers about your business. Basically anything with your company logo on it. Even in a digital communication age there's no substitute for the tactile feel of business cards and brochures, which deliver your message without pop-ups or animations.

Your message has challenges to overcome, like the every day obligations in a reader's life - if you deliver something overwhelming or confusing, they'll throw it away. To increase your collateral potential, I design attention-grabbing and readable advertising that has a greater chance of surviving the trash can.

Whether it's graphic design, Web design or copywriting, I subscribe to a proven marketing philosophy; less equals more - helping you deliver a compelling message without cramming thousands of words between tiny margins.

Design. Print. Deliver.

Converting text and images into the ultimate money-making flyer or brochure is difficult. If it wasn't, thousands of graphic artists and page layout experts like me, wouldn't exist.

Provide your copy and I'll handle everything that takes it from concept to print...

  • Graphic Design specific to your industry.
  • Attention-grabbing Copywriting.
  • Font choices that engage instead of overwhelm.
  • Page Layout that flows.
  • An overall philosophy of less equals more.
  • Printing & Delivery - just let me know when and where!

From business cards to brochures, roll labels to T-shirts, I'm here to help you bring awareness to your brand.

Design, printing and delivery - all in one place!

Collateral Design frequently asked questions

  • My partner and I need business cards - how much to design both?

    I charge a one-time fee of $65 for each unique card design. When re-ordering the same card, you only pay for printing and delivery.

    This fee covers a small portion of the creative work that ensures 2 unique files per card (front & back sides) won't get rejected by the print shop for typical DIY issues:

    • Wrong dimensions - typically pixels instead of inches.
    • Color space - typically RGB instead of CMYK.
    • Spot colors not properly defined.
    • Text or graphics trimmed off or not balanced because of bad margins.
    • Print resolution too low, typically less than 300 PPI (not to be confused with DPI).
    • Not enough bleed for artwork that should extend past the paper edge.
    • Fonts not included or outlined.
    • And my favorite fav - typos!

    If your marketing is spot-on, just one sale from this business card order will easily yield a huge return on a minimal investment (design, paper, printing, delivery).

  • If I order today, how long before I get my brochures?

    Delivery of print materials can be 5 - 10 business days after approval of the design. Depending on the print item (business cards, brochures, booklets, t-shirts, etc.) times can vary - booklets for example, will take longer than business cards because of the additional folding and binding process.

    I always suggest planning a month ahead for any print project.

  • The girl at Staples told me my logo should be 300 DPI

    DPI (dots per inch) has nothing to do with your logo. She should have asked for an image at 300 PPI (pixels per inch). Unfortunately, people who are not graphic artist or don't work in the print industry, get confused by common terminology then happily pass on that confusion.

    PPI is a term that describes the resolution of a digital image, which determines its printed size. To adjust the print dimensions for a digital image, modify its PPI (without resampling) - this does not affect the pixel count of the image. And remember, the PPI of an image does not influence how it will display on a device screen.

    DPI is a function of a printer. It describes how tightly little dots of ink are sprayed on paper to recreate that image. DPI is not used (at least it shouldn’t be used) to describe any aspect of a digital file.

  • Do you print too?

    I'm not a printer, but I have a partnership with a trade-only print shop, which allows me to pass on significant savings to my clients. In comparison to a commerical printer like Vista Print, 100 full-color business cards with gloss UV coating could cost almost 20% less.
