During the wedding process there are many feelings easily evoked. Happiness, frustration, and anxious seem to be most common. Every bride wants to see her wedding go smoothly and all the hard work to pay off. With the help of simple yet beautiful printing products your wedding will be effortlessly exquisite.
Why be standard? When you can express your uniqueness to every individual you come across? That is the question you should ask yourself before starting to create your business card. There are plenty of standard, black and white, let’s face it, boring business cards floating around out there. That doesn’t mean you should blend in with the crowd or just try to be conservative. Business cards are essentially an extension of who you are and what you bring to the table. You don’t want your business card to read exactly the same as all of your competitors. If you want that job, if you want to make a lasting impression; it all starts with a business card.
As stated previously, a business card is an extension of who you are. So, ask the question who are you? What makes you special? Then transfer it over onto paper. One way you can do this is using bright and bold colors. Rich blues, gold, and bright reds are some examples. However, you don’t want to just have one of those colors make up the entire card. If done this way, your card will be overwhelming and in-creative. The trick is to mix and match colors, but really think about what colors complement each other. If you go to Google and look up complimenting colors, you will find a lot of information. Turquoise mixed with white looks very elegant, bright, and peaceful. Red and light blue also complement each other quite nicely, the complementing colors are endless. What colors represent your personality and express who you are? This is what it comes down to.
So we all know the stereotypical 3.5″ x 2″ business card. Must we stick to the standard? NO! Overnight Prints has a plethora of non-standard business cards. Why not completely change the shape of your business card to let’s say a 3″ x 3″ Circle Business Card? Or what about a 2.5″ x 2.5″ Square Business Card? Or maybe you can still keep that standard size but spice it up with extra thick 34pt card stock with our FAT Business Card. These cards automatically stick out with either their distinguished shape or superior thickness. Whoever you give your card to will notice and remember you just by the quality, shape, and texture of an Overnight Prints business card. Once you place your color using 4:4 full color printing, your card will already be expressing quality and uniqueness and these are two factors that matter.
Now, going back to color. They don’t have to be extremely bold to be considered unique. They can also be subdued, light, and tranquil. It depends on again who you are, or maybe your job position, and what you do. If you work by the beach or are for example a yoga instructor, you might want to use those lighter tones. In this case the lighter tones work perfectly. It expresses relaxation, peace, and if your job embodies this, you don’t want your business card to communicate and entirely different message.
Of course, the most important part is placing your information and contact on the card. So, this brings us to choosing the correct font. There are an abundant, almost innumerable amounts of fonts circulating. Knowing this, there is one that fits effortlessly and accurately for everyone.
Now for some examples…
If you are in marketing or business, you want a solid, simple, and sophisticated font. My suggestions: “Josefin Sans,” “Adamina,” and a good old “Helvetica.”
Let’s say you’re a copywriter and want to express the beauty of words on paper. My suggestions: “Magnolia,” “Allura,” or “Handwriting-Dakota.”
Maybe you’re a graphic illustrator, my suggestions: Use my personal favorite “Matilde,” “Arcata,” or Josefin Slab.”
Your font should coincide with who you are and what you do. These are only font suggestions, if you find others that you love, don’t be afraid to choose those. Business cards are all about expression and being true to you.
If you have never thought about your business card or just rushed through the process. It’s time to really think about your business card. You want to make great impressions not average ones, and you want to get that job, not be disregarded. Business cards are not only essential they are critical and vital in establishing relationships and making connections that last.

When you think of logos you most likely think of the great ones, the memorable, and the ones that stick with you. When you start thinking about creating a logo for your company remember it has to be unique enough to make a lasting impression. Creating a one-of-a-kind logo is not by any means easy. It requires time, patience, and many steps. Before you start creating your very own logo make sure you don’t forget to consider these key points.
1.) What colors best suit your company?
- Colors are a way of expression and they bring out emotions in everyone. All colors bring out different emotions and it’s necessary to choose colors that represent what your company stands for. If you choose red as your color, it will be active, passionate, and intense. One example is Red Bull, they use the color red and it’s a perfect choice for their company. Red Bull is supposed to supply their customers with energy which will keep them active throughout the day.
So just what do these colors express? Here is an infographic to further explain some of the most popular colors.
2.) Look at your selection of fonts
- Fonts are very similar to colors because they also spark emotion. If your company is energetic and fun you will want to go with a font that expresses those emotions. If your company is supposed to express strength and being bold such as Under Armour, it’s probably best not to choose a cursive, floral font. Selecting a font is just as important as the color because of the emotion factor. It’s all about matching who and what your company is. Fonts can help convey messages to customers instantly.
3.) Understanding the many different logo types
- This can be a bit tricky because there are so many types of logos and aspects to consider. You have to examine how it will look across your overall company collateral. Then consider the emotional response your customers will have. The emotional response all comes back to choosing the right colors and fonts. A company logo isn’t just a symbol, it’s the core of the company. In many cases it’s the first thing your customers see and you want them to respond in a positive way. Let’s go over some of the top types of logos.
1. Lettermark Logo
Lettermarks are using the initials of the company or the first letter of the company. Many companies such as HP and Chanel use this method because it’s more appealing. Using the whole name would be too long, or perhaps the name is hard to pronounce. These are all reasons why companies would choose the Lettermark type of logo. Take ABC for example, it’s full company name is “American Broadcasting Company.” The full name is too long and wouldn’t be as easy to remember. Creating a lettermark for certain companies makes it easier for customers to recollect. 2. Symbol Logo
Using a symbol is harder to come up with but often times creates more of an impact. If you’re planning on having a big business having a symbol logo is the way to go. The reason is symbol logos are much easier for people to remember because they are simple and unique. The fun part about symbol Logos is you can create clever twist within them which highlights what your company does. Just take companies like the Goodwill and Baskin Robbins for Example.
3. Wordmark Logo
These are going to be custom designed fonts which spell out the whole name of the company. These typically use a creative arrangement that will leave not only a lasting impression but a unique logo. It solely represents the company on its use of creatively adding flare to the original name. This type of logo can be easily read and understood since they are using the exact company name. Be prepared to get innovative and think of something new, because you want the finished product to inspire your customers and one of the best examples up-to-date is Visa.
4. Emblem Logo
The emblem logo is continually growing. This logo uses the company name within a detailed design. Emblem logos give the best of both worlds, meaning you can use the full name of your company and a design to give it distinction. This logo is very popular because it combines the two, from famous ones to the newest; they are all great.
Having a solid understanding of what the types of logos are and why companies use them should help you pick the correct layout for your own. Colors and fonts are the first aspect of the logo. Perhaps these two characteristics are the most important. Before diving into logo design really do your research and apply it to your company. Last but not least don’t be afraid to use designers, and preferably those at Overnight Prints.
