Business Card Coatings & What They Mean for You

It’s just the texture, right? How can the paper coatings really make a huge impact on your business cards? Well, it’s partially true - it’s just paper. Business cards can be just as successful whether they are printed on glossy or on matte, but there’s something to be said for an excellent composition. When a business card is designed as a whole, from the color scheme to the paper chosen, when it all matches and works together, it can speak volumes about your company. Here at Lake Printing, we make it a priority to help you create a classy and professional piece to represent your business, and because one aspect of that is the coating on your business card - we want you to know what they all look like.

Graphic Design Trends to Follow

Graphic design is a language, it communicates emotion, important details, and can make or break your print piece. While you hire a graphic designer to create your pieces and tell you what is trending, or to make your piece look perfect, it can be helpful to know what is trending as you begin these projects so that you know which visual direction to go in. Here are a few trends that are happening this year, and how they can translate into your marketing pieces!

Zero Negative SpaceWhile there are many aspects of design trending that are minimalist, and interesting maximalist style is also emerging. The style to fill a page edge to edge and not leave any negative space can be incredibly attractive or highly distracting. It all depends on the style, the subject, and how it’s laid out. Using a blend of photos and text to accomplish this look can be awesome for printed posters or magazine pieces.

Muted Color PalettesIn the recent past, bright, bold, and vivid colors have been key pieces to de…
