Logo Design

Written by York Print Company on 09/05/2018

Logo design is everywhere.

I look around me now, and I can easily count up at least 10 different logos without much effort… they are scattered around us everywhere we go, are embedded in our culture and way of life. They influence our decisions, communicate and represent a company’s values, and are often full of meaning…

Logo design is the first priority when starting a new business – Logos are symbols made up of text and images that help us identify brands.  A good logo is the cornerstone of your brand. It helps customers understand what you do and who you are. The primary role of a logo is to identify… Remember this, as it trumps all other advice you’ll ever hear. Identification is what really matters. That’s a lot of responsibility for a tiny image!

Logos also leave a visual impact this reminds your customers that, well… that you exist! In other words, an effective logo can create strong visual associations with your business. This association helps customers keep your brand in mind.

Think about brands like Nike or McDonalds, whose logos are so ubiquitous that they can be recognized instantly with or without the name present. It’s no surprise that logos are such a central part of brand identity.

Pop-Up/Roller Banners

Great for Exhibitions, In-House Signage and Advertising.

Pop-up/roller banners are the perfect portable solution for a business that needs to showcase their brand on the move. They are also perfect to be a permanent display in a public space. They are one of our favourite display solutions because you can assemble them easily and transport them in the lightweight case that it comes in.

Pop-up/roller banners are a great tool for anyone looking to boost their promotional efforts. They make a great addition to any exhibition or trade show booth space.

You can either supply your own artwork or you can work with our graphic design team to ensure the graphics for your retractable banner are designed with high impact and to the correct size for print.

Graphic Design for Large Format Digital Advertising Screens

Written by York Print Company on 09/03/2017

“I was in gridlock traffic stuck in Newcastle in the pouring rain when I looked up at this massive advertisement screen 4 lanes wide. I saw the name FORREST MEDIA on the side & rang them up. Unbelievably, they put me through to the MD, I emailed him a pdf of my book & hit it off with him straight away.  “Let’s do this. It’s a great idea!” Marc said.

The campaign links in ideas from the book DEAR DEMENTIA: the laughter & the tears & the work in Wellburn Care Homes.

The soundbites on the screens give a different view of those living with dementia.”

Ian Donaghy – author of Dear Dementia

After getting the go-ahead to use the screens for his campaign, we were approached by Ian Donaghy. He was in need of Graphic Design for Large Format Digital Roadside Advertising Screens. They had to be simple, clean and bold so that the key messages came across instantly.

As you can see, they were a great success!

Christmas Card Printing

Written by York Print Company on 17/12/2015

xmas_presenceFree Christmas Card Printing for Xmas Presence.

After seeing a post on Facebook and The York Press we decided to help Xmas Presence by printing their Christmas Cards/Invites free of charge.

Ian Donaghy announced his initial plans for Xmas Presence in The Press earlier this year, and says residents and companies have since responded brilliantly.

THE organiser of a huge Christmas charity event in York says he has been overwhelmed by the city’s generous response – but says more help is still possible.

The event, at Belfrey Hall in Stonegate, will provide a Christmas Day meal and celebration for more than 40 older York residents who live alone.

He said: “A team of friends, family and volunteers met at the venue on Monday evening to hatch a plan and social media has been buzzing with activity since with offers of making, baking and decorating.

“We are trying to capture the special feeling Christmas had as a child. We will be providing Christmas dinner and a light tea as well, and special hampers filled with homemade gifts, York’s finest produce and wonderful items will be given out to the guests.”

Mr Donaghy has worked closely with Age UK. He said: “We realise that there are other groups who could benefit but we can’t be all things to all men.”

He said the John Lewis “man on the moon” advert had captured the public’s imagination, but he said: “We’re not sending the bloke a telescope – we’re inviting him down for a party!”
