This week, PrintKEG is in the final stages of relocating to 122C Stanley Road in Beaufort County. Inside the new facility, the company has adopted a third digital press plus a variety of new finishing equipment (cutters, folders etc.) allowing the company to continue providing immaculate prints faster and more reliably further committing itself to standing out in an extremely saturated and competitive market.
Walk-in customers are welcome but calling ahead of time is recommended since the new facility is surrounded by a security gate. The $5 “pick up” fee will be reduced to $0. Company staff does accept appointments to discuss print projects that include custom posters, flyers, shirts and any other print service offered by PrintKEG.
Founder and CEO, Chris Mullen states “This is a bold move for us. As we continue building our business model of cheap printing, we never forget that quality and dependability is what keeps customers coming back to PrintKEG. We understand the needs and expectations of the art community, individual designers and marketing representatives. Our new location facilitates and fosters a more high-performance environment enabling us to be the best at what we love: printing small projects inexpensively. Our staff will miss our old little shop. At 10 Burton Hill Road, we transformed a little print shop into a million dollar national phenomenon. We had great neighbors and a wonderful landlord. I will always remember that place as it served to be a major stepping stone in our company’s history.”
Friday, November 2, 2012 - Watching the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy made staff members of an East Coast online print company, PrintKEG.com, rally to find a way to help those in need by committing to donate a percentage of sales to the American Red Cross.
“Many of our customers reside from the Mid to North Atlantic coast and we feel the need to give back and do anything we can to help support the victims of this horrific storm,” stated PrintKEG co-founder Chris Mullen. “As a small business owner myself, I can’t image the devastation of having to close a business while infrastructure is repaired and hope that our Nation helps these people get back on their feet as quickly as possible.”
PrintKEG.com offers short-run printing solutions at cheap prices including flyers, posters, banners, booklets, holiday cards and much more. Proceeds from each sale through the end of November will go directly to the Red Cross.
“We hope that many businesses will consider doing the same and our thoughts are with the families in need,” added Mullen. “We also welcome people to email us if they have projects that involve fund-raising for Sandy victims at email@example.com.”
PrintKEG.com was founded in 2008 with the goal of becoming the premiere online destination for cheap online flyer printing. Since then, the company has been able to offer much more than flyers. PrintKEG’s unwavering focus on superior customer service has allowed the company to expand online offerings to include posters, postcards, banners and much more. PrintKEG.com offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee, The PrintKEG Promise.
For quite some time now, we’ve wanted to revamp our sticker products. We envisioned brighter colors, numerous shapes and rounded corners - and that’s what we provide! The potential of our new sticker service is only limited by our customers’ imaginations. Stickers can be used as decals, window signage, labels and so much more.
But what makes them better than before?
First, we switched from a 60# Adhesive to a 100# Adhesive Gloss. This transition ensures a more durable and high quality sticker.
Second, the colors are more accurate and vibrant thanks to our new, more advanced, wide format inkjet printer. Each sticker gains the same superb color quality as our astounding large poster prints.
Finally, stickers can be in shapes of circles, ovals or have rounded corners thanks to our new plotter. My favorite aspect of this new cutting platform is the ability to provide die-cut stickers which can be used for almost any purpose.
Oh yeah, there’s one more thing. We offer these stupendously awesome stickers at super cheap prices beating everyone else out there printing small runs of customized sticky stuff. We probably are not the place for large runs (1000 and over), but we’re heaven for small quantities.
Oh yeah, the digital world is a real hater when it comes to paper business cards, but cards may still be essential when it comes to marketing and credibility. Like stationery, business cards play a more personal role in offering contact information to a client. Additionally, the more ways a customer’s attention is drawn to a brand, the more likely a sale will be made.
Carefully consider what contact information is included while not trying to cram every line of communication in there. Here are some ideas:
Two phone numbers or less. Choose wisely and keep it clean. If you add a fax line (ack!) then that counts as one number. I recommend only one phone number, but some companies rely on faxes for orders (that’s absurd!).
Stick to good typography. Unless your company relies on a mascot for branding, try to stray away from photos or clip art. Carefully consider typography since it can have such a huge impact on design.
Socializing online Nowadays, I can’t see how we can avoid social media on our business cards. Before just throwing up a long Facebook link, consider Twitter, Flickr or Pinterest since those outlets might actually be more beneficial for clients and your business. For instance, we are adding Flickr to our cards so people can view print samples quickly and easily.
Forget about titles. Titles take up valuable real estate on the business card. Only add your title if it is absolutely necessary. Does adding “Sales Representative” really make a huge difference? Probably not.
Limit email addresses and URL’s. My goodness, don’t stuff a ton of emails and URL’s onto one card. One email, company website and a single social media spot is plenty.
We hope these ideas are helpful in your quest of creating an optimal business card. Learn more about our business card printing.
Initially, we introduced our QR Code Treasure Hunt at PrintReady.co, but here it is:
The online print shop PrintKEG launches a QR Code “treasure hunt” aimed to engage customers in a fun game to receive discounts and prizes.
QR codes have been hidden around the company’s website, social media outlets and other online locations while also available in physical locations such as packaging, storefront window, mailers and other areas which remain secret until discovered by a lucky, or determined, customer or prospect.
When a client scans one of these QR codes with their smartphone, they are lead to a URL that could pass on discounts, free gifts or new clues to even bigger prizes. Chris Mullen, a PrintKEG co-founder and president, reveals “One prize is worth $1000 in credits for purchasing prints. Anyone who scans is sure to win something. We wanted this to be a fun, rewarding way for customers to help us build our brand.”
Mullen also notes that the QR codes are not only hidden in various outlets, but also lead to a wide variety of possibilities. “For instance, a QR code may lead to a YouTube Video with further clues, an exclusive deal on our Facebook page, or ask that you text us a code. The more complex the hunt, the better the prize. Many codes offer instant gratification like immediate discounts or free gifts,” states Mullen.
In many cases, once a treasure is “found” and redeemed its gone for good. The QR code will either be removed from its location or link to a place that could read something like “Blimey! Another buccaneer has been here already and ran off with me gold!” courtesy our mascot, Mr. Keg.
“The printing industry is loving the interactive possibilities with QR codes that intertwines the print and digital worlds. We’ve already dabbled a little with QR codes in the past, but we wanted to be more creative. This is a long term campaign which we hope customers will enjoy.”
The online announcement of the campaign is located on PrintKEG’s blog.
