Over the past 20 years Alacrify has worked on many different print design projects for many different clients, often linking the print design to complement a web project.
Good design for print involves us clearly understanding our clients' needs and then using a mixture of good layout design principles, high quality artwork and clear typography to create a memorable, useful and high quality design. We also give consideration to the type of print output that suits the job - including the use of specialist papers and specialist print techniques like foiling, embossing, thermography, lithography and digital printing.
We've provided business stationery, business cards, letterheads, invoice and remittance advice pro formas to start up new businesses or to re-brand existing ones. We've also created exhibition stands, posters, flyers, journals, books and company reports for all sorts of purposes.
Sometimes we will arrange for the printing of the artwork for our clients and we have a select band of recommended printers that we use for each type of work who offer the right combination of quality and price. For other clients we will just supply the print-ready artwork so they can take it to their local printers for printing. Some clients like us to produce templates that they can print directly on their computers, and so we supply the artwork as Microsoft Word templates or PowerPoint documents. We normally use a combination of Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator to produce our clients' artwork and can supply printers proofs for approval before the final print run.
We've worked with many new businesses to create a comprehensive print and web starter pack of printed stationery - business cards and letterheads - along with a matching website to launch the new business. This approach has also been useful for companies looking to rebrand themselves, or to re-launch themselves after a change in their business.
