Look here!! See pics below for some of our recent vehicle graphics projects. We can help you turn a plain service vehicle into a driving advertisement for your company. Vehicle graphics can provide a professional image to your company. Vehicle graphics done correctly can elevate the first impression your customers experience. Vehicle graphics also promote your services or products on the roads.
And as always, I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend QR codes on your vehicles is you’re promoting to the public. Think about this, you’re driving down the road, and reach a stop light. Right in front of you is a roofer’s service vehicle. You’re in the beginning stages of replacing your roof. Their phone number is on the back of the truck. You scramble to find a pen, and something to write on. Hurry!! Before the light turns green. Success! You got the number. You call later. Oh oops, wrong number! Now you’ve lost a potential roofer. And they’ve lost a customer!! On the other hand what if there had been a QR code on the back of the truck? All you would have to do is snap a pic of the QR code which directs you straight into the web-site, or phone number!! This one is a no-brainer.

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

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.
Spring is the time to start thinking about Graduation Announcements! If you have someone graduating this year, take a look at our Graduation Announcement selections. We added a new feature: You can complete your order online, and have them sent straight to your home.
Brochures are still a very important marketing tool! Believe it or not in this digital age, people still like to give and receive brochures. There is an immediancy with putting a brochure in someone’s hands that isn’t there when you send an e-mail, or direct someone to a web-site. A well designed brochure, printed on quality paper will create a good impression with the recipient.
We design and print brochures for every imaginable type of organization. There are informational brochures for non-profits, and churches. There are sales brochures for leave behinds after a sales call. There are attraction brochures (or rack cards) at hotels. The types and uses of brochures are endless. But please remember, good design is super important in brochure printing. If the design is bad, or the resolution of the art isn’t high enough, or the paper is flimsy, you will wind up creating a bad impression. Seriously, brochure printing should be left to professionals. Desk jet printing of brochures will have the reverse affect of the intention!
Here’s a brochure that we design and printed for a customer who makes boxes from recycled paper. We printed this bi-fold brochure on heavy, coated stock for a first impression to appeal to the recipient’s senses: Sight as well as feel!

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.
