I wrote a blog post for Printhouse Corporation about different examples of print finishes.
In this week I had a meeting with a client. Their company has a beautiful designed, working website. But he still has the need to get a brochure/flyer printed. His reason was: When someone receive it, hopefully they will pin it up and see it all the time. Then it should be easy for them to phone us when they require our services.
The great thing about print is, it can result in items that can serve as something useful. A lot of situations still require to hold a beautiful finished off brochure with high quality photos in your hands. Or a special invitaton that someone can open and keep as a reminder of an event. Excellent reasons to spice up the design even more.
Print finishing is a commercial and/or personal value-added process that takes place after printing. Often print finishes are overlooked as an option when designing for print. In my blog post The use of Print Finishes with Design you can read about a few options and to view examples.
