East Arlington, TX (PressExposure) October 24, 2009 -- Many people only think they are doing custom catalog printing. In reality they are just doing what most other people are doing, using templates and boring pre-made layouts.
That is why when you look at most catalog printing today, most look the same with only a few differences in color and layout. For a truly customized catalog, you have to do it yourself. You have to be original and create all the elements of color catalogs in accordance with your own preferences.
In this guide, I will tell you how to create one all your own.
â¢ Your own name - The first thing that your catalog needs to be truly customized is its own name. Do not name it exactly like your company or store. It has to have its own name and its own identity that is related to the theme of your company. This ensures the individuality of your catalog that should help people realize its originality. The more unique your color catalog looks like, the more curious people will be about it.
â¢ Your own logo - Your color catalogs should also have its own special logo that is related to your company. While of course, the company logo is perfectly welcome in most catalog printing, having a unique logo or name print, can really make it into its own medium. Using the custom name described above, you can pretty much design a special logo for your catalog. You can make it as distinctive as the "name-logo" of Vogue or Playboy if you can.
â¢ Your own language - You should also have your catalog speak its own unique language. Do not just describe and dictate information like a textbook at people. It must exude the lifestyle that it promotes through your products. So make sure that all the descriptions are appropriate for the audience who should read it. For example, techie ones should be quite geeky when possible, while luxury ones must exude that sense of elegance that rich audiences are used to. Doing this makes the catalog uniquely part of the society that reads it, giving it its identity and its own voice.
â¢ Your own design style - Another big reminder for customization is the design. The design style must be your own for your color catalogs to be truly original. That means scrapping the use of templates and themes and doing everything you need from scratch. This makes your designs truly your own style, something that people should identify easily among the rest.
That is how you can truly customize your catalogs. The more you customize the more unique your they should be, and as long as you are distinct among the rest, you should have a great advantage in business. Good Luck!
