Presentation folder printing is available in many different sizes and formats. Some of the common features of custom presentation folders are that they usually have one or more pockets, one or more folds, and one or more business card slits. While the most popular presentation folder is a 9 x 12 bi-fold that opens to 18 by 12, we’ve done all sorts of different size custom pocket folders. One of our customers has a 2 fold folder that serves as both brochure as well as a folder. The first two pages are the brochure part, and the far right side is the pocket and business card slit side.
We can also do small size pocket folders. We regularly do the wallet pocket folders for car dealerships who fold and place any repair paperwork in the pocket. These ‘wallet pocket folders’ are usually kept in the glove compartment of a car to store maintenance records.
We can also do fancy finishes such as foil stamping, and or embossing for a very elegant custom presentation folder.
Call us for help with your custom pocket folder project. Even if you’re on a budget, we can help with a solution.
The presentation folder is an important part of a business’ image. Whatever you do, don’t opt for something cheap and cheap looking. Recently, my husband went to a periodontist. He needed to get some pricey work done on his gums. The practice sent him home with his paperwork in a Wal-mart school supply aisle folder with a WORD document sticker slapped on the front. The folder created a bad impression. And It made us wonder if they cut corners on their work also. Don’t be like that!!
Business Cards are still a very important part business today. As much as we’ve come to rely on smartphones for everything from the news and weather to instant communication, people still use business Business Cards. A Lot!
Business Cards convey an image
In addition to providing the recipient with the giver’s contact info, the business card also conveys the company or organization’s image. Corporate colors, as well as the logo are used on business cards.
Business Cards with pictures
Some people/companies like to their image on their business cards. Real Estate Agents seem to always like to have pictures of themselves on their cards. Car dealerships often feature a car. We do business cards with pictures!
We also do all kinds of fancy effects on business cards. For instance, we can do embossing, foil embossing, folding business, cards, and raised print to name a few.
For many reasons, there is currently a labor shortage. If you’re a business owner, looking to hire, how do you get the message to potential hires? There are many strategies. Several that we can help with are detailed below.
now hiring signs
A series of yard signs placed near your place of business can be effective. Especially if you use several of them. People become curious by the visual repetition. Now Hiring signs are even more effective if your place of business is near a busy road.
I see Now Hiring Signs all the time while I’m driving. I think these signs can be VERY EFFECTIVE if you include a QR code on them. Giving potential hires the opportunity to simply snap a pic of your info is so much more efficient than hoping they’ll be able to find a scrap of paper and pen and write down your phone number while driving by!!
An Employee Referral program is very effective! Employees are incentivized to refer their friends or relatives. We have design cards where employers offer $100, $250, and even $500 to current employees for a hired referral. One thing to note: you must put conditions in place to make a referral program succeed. For example, many companies require that a referred new hire must stay employed for a certain amount of time before the referring employee is paid. Also, skilled positions often have a higher referral bonus associated with them.

Graphics: We can design eye catching, practical signs/banners/and referral cards
Printing: We can print signs, cards, banners
Fulfillment: We can warehouse/send your hiring collateral anywhere in the US
Right now one of the most important issues facing employers is attracting and retaining employees. On the employee retention front, we did a job this week for a large employer of manufacturing jobs.
The Human Resources Manager at one of their locations is doing creative things to make sure that the current employees feel appreciated. For example, she has initiated a program at her facility where the managers are tasked with recognizing employees and their outstanding contributions to the plant.
She had us create a set of thank you cards with appreciative messages on the outside, a promise of a reward on the inside, and room for a hand written note.
Here are the phrases that we incorporated into a card design. The card ‘look’ was based on the elements of their corporate image.
Here is an article about techniques for employee retention. Not only does it reinforce the idea of employee encouragement and recognition, it also offers some other retention ideas.

Most prescriptions are handled electronically from the doctor to the pharmacy. However sometimes a doctor or caregiver needs to write a prescription. They need prescription pads. Believe it or not, there are many restrictions on preparing and selling prescription pads. For example, prescription pads must be printed on non-copiable paper. Also, purchase of the prescription paper is limited only to printers. Paper suppliers are responsible for determining if the paper purchaser is legitimate. And it goes on.
Here is an example of a recent project that we did for an OB/GYN practice.
It is so important to understand the mechanics of printing when designing for print
Our main specialty when engaging in design work at Allegra Print Atlanta is designing for print projects. There are many things to consider when designing a job. Color, balance, font, design elements, message…the list goes on. All of these considerations are important when designing anything. However, there are many ‘mechanics’ that have to be considered when designing for print. If a designer doesn’t know about these ‘mechanics’, the piece must often be re-worked to make it ‘print-ready’. This re-working can be costly. Therefore, it makes the most sense to choose a graphic designer who can design for print.
What are these mechanics? Everything from creating a ‘bleed’ (making sure that the color goes ‘beyond’ the final size of the work), to understanding the limitations of each piece of equipment that must be included in the production process. Another important piece of knowledge is the understanding of paper stock, availability, thickness, and potential results.
Sometimes, if a designer doesn’t understand these considerations, they can come up with output that impossible to produce in an affordable manner. Booklets and invitations are particularly tricky if there isn’t any ‘mechanical’ consideration given.
In our experience owning a print production facility, it seems like the fly-by-night quickie and inexpensive designers that you can find on project posting sites don’t have any understanding of print mechanics. Often times, their ‘designs’ are almost worthless. Therefore, when considering a print project, please think about partnering with an experienced design for print graphic designer.
