Printer Cartridges: Can a Toner Cartridge Save You Money?

Laser printers and their toner cartridges can cost more.  However, it’s important to consider the long-term cost savings.  Toner cartridges will print more pages than an ink cartridge and often have a lower cost per page.  Also, determine whether or not you want to print in color or if monochrome printing (black ink or toner only) will suit your needs. Monochrome laser printing can cost considerably less than printing in color.  Be sure to read the product specifications to determine if this is the best option for you.

Basics of Custom Product Label Design

You’ve taken the time to define your customer, company, and product.  This valuable information can be used to design a custom product label that your customers are sure to find!  Now it’s time to design your label.  
Here’s the basics!

1) The front of the label is typically more general in nature, and may include your logo, product name, tag line or product description, and quantity. 

2) Provide more detail on the back, including product description, company or product story, instructions for use, ingredients, barcode, and other relevant information.

3)  Keep in mind that the size of the label will drive the font size and amount of information presented.  The words must be readable!  The style, size, and color of the font all contribute to the readability.  If it’s too elaborate or small, your efforts may be wasted. The contrast between the color of the font and background also impacts readability. A light font needs to paired with a darker background for optimal readability.  For example, a label with light-yellow wording against a medium yellow background is sure to frustrate anyone who attempts to read it.  Whereas a label with light-yellow wording against a dark blue background is easier to read given the level on contrast.
