Today, my friend Kat’s alternative wedding publication, Rock n Roll Bride Magazine hits newsstands across the UK and if you’re located somewhere else in the world, you can order it here.
When your friends do awesome things, lift them up and celebrate their accomplishments! I know how hard Kat worked on this project because my design studio Branch spent most of the summer collaborating on both her new branding and magazine design. These are some peeks at the outcome!
I know that many of you are either branding new businesses or going through a rebrand yourself and with that comes the need for promotional materials. While Kat’s magazine was sent off to a professional printer, I use a lot of print on demand companies for projects and wanted to share some businesses I’ve had great results with to get you started.
Moo is by far my most-used printing resource. I’m constantly ordering business cards, stickers and flyers for clients and the Luxe line is especially awesome. The paper stock is extra thick and you can even get different colored edges on many of the products. While the quality of their offerings speak for themselves, what really elevates Moo above the rest is their fantastic customer service. I’ve had my share of customer misprints and they fix them every single time, free of charge. Pretty amazing.
When I need postcards fast, I rely on this company. Their prices are the best around and they can get you what you need very quickly. I’ve been a customer for 10 years now and while I don’t use them for more premium print jobs, they are a great solution for one-time events or when a generous print budget just isn’t an option.
I use Magcloud all the time. They are the best around for print on demand items like workbooks, look books and posters. Even better, they offer a bulk discount when you order 20 of the same item. I’ve ordered from them a few dozen times when we need Blogcademy workbooks and every single time, they’ve arrived on time and perfectly printed. Even better, they ship worldwide and provide immediate tracking numbers for peace of mind.
UPrinting is great when you have a specialty piece in mind. They can do tons of die-cut items including business cards and hangtags. I recently ordered square business cards through them for Branch and the quality is really good.
If you’re self-publishing or doing a print-on-demand book, Blurb has beautiful pre-made templates and even better, hooks in directly with Amazon to help you get your book in front of an oniline audience quickly and easily. The quality of their printing is great and you can produce anything from trade paperbacks to coffee table books.
This is a VSCO owned company so naturally the design of the site and examples of what they offer are top notch. If you’re interested in producing keepsake-worthy fine art prints and photo books, this is your place. I use them to produce square Instagram prints.
I hope these resources help you print your new collateral with style and ease!
