Design Ideas and Inspiration 48 Funny Print Ads that’ll Keep You Laughing


Though hundreds of Print Ads are made each year to promote various products, not many can be considered successful based on the response of both the critics and the general public. People have seen so many advertisements that they’ll be quick to blast unoriginal or overused concepts. They also expect witty and powerful copy. For budding graphic artists trying to make a name for themselves in the field of advertising, it is essential to  find out what particular formulas have worked or failed in the past. And of course, the only way to do so is check out other works that have gotten the nod of critics and audience alike.

Something that has been present for a lot of successful print ads is the element of humor. While it isn’t really necessary, ads injected with humor, whether it be a form of sarcasm or just a clever joke, will most likely be remembered and talked about by the audience. We have compiled 48 of the funniest print ads made in recent years for your inspiration and sheer entertainment. Enjoy!

Wedding Invitations: Tips, Design Samples and Cool Wedding Fonts


Wedding invitations are very important. Often, the number of people who attend a wedding would likely depend on how many of them received an invite. Friends and relatives can also be notified through email, and in many cases, through phone or chat, but nothing beats ol’ snail mail.

Sending out invitations through mail has become an age-old tradition of sorts. It also is a fun way of sharing your happiness to those who are dear to you and of telling them that you sincerely want them to share that joy on your big day. Many brides (and grooms) take the time to design their wedding invites due to those earlier stated reasons and largely for the fact that a well-designed invite makes a great wedding memento.

4 Tips in Designing Your Wedding Invites

 

Choose a motif…and stick to it

One must consider the theme or motif. Once you’ve finally chosen one, stick to it. You wouldn’t want to spoil the design by using too much color or details that do not belong together.

 

Details, details, details

Do not forget to check and recheck the names, places and other written details on your invite. Also check for spelling errors.

 

Order the right number of invites

You can save on money by computing how many you would want to invite. Remember, send one invite per home, not necessarily by individual people. Read more here.

 

Leave the printing and address customization to the experts

You must not try doing everything yourself. Seek for professional help especially for crucial processes such as color printing.

After designing your card (you can either do it yourself or hire somebody who will), it is a must to forward the job to a professional printer.

Among its many advantages are:

  • Quality prints
  • Faster turn-around
  • Easier on your end
  • Address ink-jetting (as compared to manual calligraphy, you’ll save more time and money.)

Also check UPrinting’s mailing service and how it can help make your wedding preparations easier. You see, aside from printing, we also collate and insert prints into your wedding envelopes and afterward take care of mailing them out. How easy is that!

30 Beautiful Corporate Identity Design Samples You Should See

First impressions last and it’s vital for you and your business to make them good.

On that note, you should make sure that everything you give away communicates your identity well. From concept, to design, to the actual prints; everything should be well thought of and devised. After all, nothing beats a well designed memo or a carefully made business card. 

Print quality is also a big issue. Printing these items yourself could prove to be convenient at one time or another, but it doesn’t always end up pleasantly. Colors on the prints will be inconsistent and, unfortunately, they are often obvious. Bad prints will likewise make you look bad. And cheap. I’m pretty sure you’re not, so why should your corporate identity materials be?

Let the character of your business reflect on your correspondences, business cards and other business materials. You can either hire a professional graphic designer or create your own design. Either way, be sure that the final prints are great so that they will make a positive impact on the people who will be receiving them.
