Top Five Design Blunders to Avoid

When it comes to full color printing, the possibilities are virtually endless, but doing too much with your designs could hurt you, not help you. From flyer printing to brochure printing, there are plenty of ways to mess up your marketing. Here are five common blunders that cause promotional printing to fail so you don’t make the same mistake.

1. Putting to much on the page: When it comes to the layout, it is always best to keep it simple. Condensing your printing with too much just isn’t conducive to an effective approach.

2. Inconsistent use of style and color: If your color scheme isn’t conducive to your industry or target audience, it will miss the mark for your designs. Layout and accentuate your printing purpose with vibrant, relevant colors to create an eye-catching design.

3. Spelling, grammar and other sloppy errors: To spread the word about the cause, event or products and services you are trying to promote, you need to make sure that you come off as reliable, professional and polished. Errors will get in the way of your credibility.

4. Not appealing to the target audience: No matter how good your printing is, if it doesn’t send the right message to the customers you want to appeal to, it just won’t work.

5. Distracting with the design: You may have a ton of relevant photos and plenty of good ideas for your designs, but if you can construct the design well with them, they will basically be pointless. Use white space and basic design formats to ensure that your customers pay attention to the details and take interest in your products and services.
