Wedding photo printing

Wedding photo printing can be fun

So many times when we think of wedding photo printing we only think about having separate prints of our favorite wedding pictures reprinted to give to others and a set of pictures for our wedding album.  But there are so many more things you can do with the photos from a wedding that you really should consider.

Photo books are a wonderful way to work with your wedding photos to create a wonderful keepsake for yourself with copies for others.  Showcase your big day in a photo book.  They can be playful or elegant, or a little of both.  Play with fonts.  By using a mix of both classic and modern you will create a one of a kind photo book.  Add elegant frames around your favorite pictures.  Transparent pages of vellum can add an extra element of grace.  Tell your entire story from getting ready for the ceremony to walking down the aisle, then be sure to include a special photo of your wedding vows.  Head to the reception for the first dance to the cake cutting with pictures of all your special guests included.  End with the sendoff at the end of the evening.  You will cherish what you create for a lifetime.

Using your favorite photos from the wedding in special ways can keep the special time alive for many years.  Use a great picture of the bride and groom on the face of a thank you card that you will send in response for all the wonderful gifts you received.  The cards can be ready to use by the time you return from your honeymoon.

Use a most beloved photo on the cover of your wedding album, especially if you are not making a photo book.  Think about other places that you would enjoy seeing some of the best photos from your wedding used.  On a set of mugs to use each morning for coffee, on the mouse pad you will use at work.  There are many different, original ways to use your wedding photos and to continue enjoying them for a long time after that special day.  If you have 12 photos you love think about enjoying them for an entire year as a calendar.  Share your calendar with loved ones or use it at work.

Also consider wedding photo printing in large sizes.  How about an extra large photo for your office, or den?  You can print the photo on glossy paper and frame it in a traditional manner, or you could have the photo printed on canvas and mounted on a frameless wood mount.  Check out how photos can almost look like paintings when printed on canvas.  You can make amazing wedding photo prints in many different sizes when working with canvas.

Wedding photos can be printed onto wood to create durable copies to use in special places.  Printing onto metal gives you vibrant, high definition prints that will also last extra long and can be displayed easily.

Prism Photo Imaging is your place to go when you need large photo printing

You may not realize that photo enlargements have many uses both in the home and in business.  Prism Photo Imaging has all the right equipment to do large photo printing with the best results.  You will like the high resolution printing method used that gives you sharp details.  You won’t get fuzzy looking enlargements when you are working with us.

When your business is working on advertising there are a few different uses for photo enlargements.  Large photo printing works well when creating posters to showcase items on sale or new items you are offering.  Have us produce multiple copies of a poster hawking that luscious piece of strawberry pie with the special discount price for you to hang in multiple spots.  It will get the word out quickly.

Showcasing uses for an item you are selling can be done with taking photographs of the item in use, enlarging the photos, then printing them onto a poster that can be displayed near the item.  No need to try to explain how to use your product when a picture can answer the customers’ questions.

Large photo printing is routinely used as you create a trade show booth.  Pictures of your place of business, products you produce, sell or service, and the people who work for you can be used to help create the perfect displays you need for your booth.  When appropriate, old photos of an earlier place that housed your business or old interesting products you used to produce can help grab peoples’ attention and draw them into your booth.

A home or office can be decorated using framed photo enlargements.  Picking favorite places, events, or people for the subjects of your large photos is a wonderful way to keep memories alive.

Large photo prints can be placed on canvas to be hung in an office or home.  Printing the photo onto canvas changes it, almost making it into a painting.  The high resolution photo gains a certain ambiance that a plain print just cannot match.  In an office it can help set the right mood for the business.  In a home it can remind a person of a favorite event or place for many years to come.  Prism Photo Imaging will mount your canvas on durable stretcher bars.  Many people do not frame the canvas; instead they choose to just hang the canvas mounted on the wooden frame.

If you haven’t already guessed, large photo printing can help you create wonderful gifts.  Carefully choose some of your best photos and bring them to Prism Photo Imaging.  We can print a plain enlargement that can then be framed to be displayed on a desk or hung on a wall.  Or we can print an enlargement onto canvas.  The personalized gift will be cherished for years to come.

An interesting and fun way to work with large photo printing is to create multiple photo panels from a single photo, usually a landscape.  Many times the photo will be broken down into 3 separate panels that are then framed and hung side by side.  This creates an exciting display.

When you know you need large photo printing, whether for business or home, don’t hesitate to come to Prism Photo Imaging.  We will help you create what you need quickly and professionally.

Banner Printing LA

Banner Printing LA–for your business or organization

Banners are a fantastic, cost effective method of announcing important information or for marketing your business.  There are multiple different banner materials that are available and lots of bright, eye-catching colors that can be used in printing banners.  You can make your message come to life in full color.  Turn to banner printing, LA, when you need to make a big impression.

Any organization can get their message across with a banner.  Banners can be large or small.  You decide exactly what you need to say.  Do you need to let people know about an event?  Or do you need to use banners to guide people to the event?  Or both?  We can help you create the banners you will need to help with your event from beginning to end.  Advertise by starting with the announcement banners to let people know about the event beforehand.  Then be sure to have a banner that will be hung to indicate where the event is happening.  Think about what smaller banners you will need to help people get to the event or to navigate around if the event is spread out across multiple rooms or other areas.

Don’t be shy and think that your event isn’t important enough to need banners.  There are always ways we can help you with banners and banners are less expensive than you may think.  Some banners you make for an event may be able to be used again the following year or at other events throughout the year.  Simple banners with the organization name and logo always find ways to be used year ‘round.

For businesses that attend trade shows banner printing is very important.  Trade show booths are created using various kinds of banners.  Don’t limit yourself to only thinking about the traditional rectangular hanging banner.  Vertical banner stands are perfect for convention booths.  They are free standing and come in various widths.  Retractable banners can be used multiple times and store very easily in their own cases.  Transporting them is a breeze.  The printed banner retracts into its own base that is then placed into a handy carrying case.  Double sided banners are very popular and carry a double impact in 2 different directions so you catch people from multiple angles.

If your trade show or convention will be held near our shop you can arrange for your banners to be printed here.  They will be available when you arrive in town.  This will save on shipping costs, especially if they are banners that will only be used for that specific event.

Think of using banners to announce special deals and sales.  They are easy to display and can be moved around.  You may want to have straight forward banners that simply announce “Sale” and can be used multiple times.  Other banners may be more specific to the actual sale.  Banners are a great way to draw customers’ attention to the area where the products on sale are actually located.  In a restaurant a banner can remind customers to think about ordering a specific item.

The power of a website

It is of utmost importance that consumer power through their use of websites in making product and services choices is no longer underestimated. Every day, millions of consumers across the country are searching for companies, businesses and corporates offering a range of services and products and are making decisions based on their experiences on these websites. Whether it is consumer looking to buy music or a corporate looking for their next IT provider, they are researching their choices online and are either deciding then and there who to buy from or commission or are shortlisting a handful of companies they want to talk to in more detail. If you have made the mistake of underestimating the power of your website, then at best you have considerable growth to come in the future, or at worst, you need to reset and go back to basics to attract customers back and new customers to try your company out.

Your website is now the gateway to your company. Foot traffic, enquiry phone calls and or requesting brochures are no longer typical consumer behaviors. They are going straight to search engines and searching for what they need and who has to offer it. If you are lucky enough to feature on the first page of search results, then you had better hope your website is attractive, impactful and encourages potential customers to stay on long enough to choose your company for a product or service. Get any one of these wrong, and customers will be looking at your competitor websites within a minute or two of not finding you in the search results or having an unpleasant experience on your website.

If these challenges and faults ring a bell with you and your website traffic is at best underwhelming, at worst declining rapidly, then you had better very quickly realize you need a team of expert web designers to overhaul your current site. One of the better options for web designers these days is a Los Angeles printing company. Many of these companies have diversified their offerings to include website design as they have the expertise in marketing and advertising, graphic design experts who bring creativity to websites and they understand what consumers react to, remember and recall. Yes, there are dedicated website design companies but they are far too often IT experts with little marketing and advertising knowledge. Why use them when a Los Angeles printing company offering website design services is able to bring all aspects of a website to a team from consumer understanding, marketing and advertising expertise and vast amounts of creativity. A website is not just lines of code. It must reflect your company culture, your customer behavior and encourage consumer choices in your favor. IT experts and coders cannot do all of this.

If your business is slowing and customers are choosing your competitors, it may likely be due to your poor online presence. Make some calls to a Los Angeles printing company or two and ask how they can bring a rapid turnaround with their website design services.

Using printing services from Prism Photo to promote your small business

 

You have just started your new business. You are excited, and tired, but you know that you are not finished yet. How are you going to get the word out about your business—the products or services it provides? Think about getting help with marketing from Prism Photo. We offer many printing services that can help you advertise your business to Los Angeles, to California, or to the entire United States or the World.

When you need to spread the word quickly without breaking the bank account consider sending out postcards. Prism Photo can help design the postcard, then print up as many as you want. No order is too big or too small. Consider putting a photo or two of your products or services on the postcard along with pertinent information on how to find your business or contact you for services. Hopefully you have thought about branding for your business. We will be sure to use the color scheme you have chosen for your business, the logo for your business, and any other identify items that will make the postcard stand out and say “you.” If you are still struggling with what your logo should look like tell us. We can assist you with creating a logo the will represent your business well for many years to come.

Once you start getting customers you will need business cards. You need something small that each customer can tuck into their wallet or pocket so that they will have all your contact information in order to call you or come into your business in the future. Business cards should be distinctive. Even if you are on a tight budget consider making a great business card. It is something that you will have for a long time, and really don’t want to have to change much through the years. Prism Photo can help you develop your business card from the color and type of card to the ink color and type of printing to the design layout. We know you value your business and will do our utmost to work up to your expectations.

No business is complete without flyers. There are a couple of different types of flyers that you may need. You may want a single sheet flyer to use for descriptions of products. You provide the information and we will create the layout. You might need single sheet flyers to announce a special event or sale. They can be great for hanging up and handing out.

You might also want to print on a slightly heavier weight paper and fold that single sheet flyer into a brochure. We can make these as plain or as fancy as you like. Tri-fold brochures will fit into a business size envelope for mailing either as a follow up to a phone call or as an announcement of your services and products.

Look to Prism Photo and our printing services to help your business get off the ground and grow.

Don’t let your website let you down

An impact, intuitive and customer centric website is crucial for any business right now, as the digital era has commenced in full force over the last few years. The digital economy is growing and growing day by day and any business left behind will most likely suffer growth and success issues in the very near future. If your business does not have a website or you feel your business website requires an overhaul, then it should be seen as an urgent business objective to have completed. As a business located in Los Angeles, you are fortunate to have access to some of the most creative graphic designers and experienced website designers the world has to offer, meaning that you can very easily and very quickly have your new business website designed.

Many businesses under estimate how much information gathering and research is carried out online by existing and potential customers these days. With a smartphone, tablet or laptop in the hands of most consumers these days, it is simple and quick to get online and carry out some very basic research on products or services and the companies offering these products or services. If your website is not featured on the first page of search engines, and even if it is, and your website is not customer-centric, intuitively navigable and provides all the information a potential customer needs to make a decision, then the potential customer is going to go straight back to the search engine and try one of your competitors. Having the, almost perfect website for your business is now a non-negotiable.

Finding the right website designer is not that easy despite the abundance of designers around Los Angeles. It is often highly recommended that you consider a Los Angeles printing company that has website design expertise as well. The reason for this is that a good Los Angeles website design company has both extensive marketing and advertising knowledge and experience and typically a team of highly skilled graphic designers. Your website is often a digital extension of your advertising and marketing campaigns but with more detail. It is thus logical to use a Los Angeles printing company with the marketing and advertising material creation background that is now offering website design.

It is also important that the website design company that you choose has some customer experience in your industry and in particular an understanding of their website needs. When customers are used to a particular website look and feel, anything different will often discourage them. Decision making, navigation and choices for customers should be as similar as possible amongst competitor sites while still maintaining uniqueness and differentiation. A good website design company will understand this and ideally therefore have experience of your industry and the industries customers.

If you have any doubts about your business website, then there is a very good chance it is letting your business growth and success down. Get straight onto identifying a website design partner and bring customers back with a state of the art website.

Use your photos

We are taking more photos than ever before as we now tend to have a camera on us wherever we go. As cell phones have developed, some excellent cameras have been added into the technology of phones meaning that we can now take photos wherever we happen to be and, essentially, of whatever we want. Unfortunately, as cell phone technology has developed, so has social media and other digital platforms for sharing our news and photos. So, even though more photos than ever are being taken, fewer photos are actually be printed than ever before.
Taking a photo is an art form and expressing this art form is ideally done through the specialized printing of photos. Once a photo is printed, it takes on a work of art. It becomes more tangible, it allows for more detail to be seen and it takes on a character of its own depending on the paper used, the size of the print and how and where it is displayed. Every one of us has taken photos that deserve to be expressed and printed and all it takes is to find a good Los Angeles printing company and to make the effort to head down to the store and get a photo or photos of yours printed. Once you have seen the final print, it is almost guaranteed that you will have no regrets proudly displaying your own creation and work of art.
Given that photos taken are now easily viewed digitally, it is no longer a case of taking a roll of film in and wondering what kind of photos will come out. You can now very easily choose a photo or a handful of photos that you know look good, are in focus and can be printed at large sizes without distortion. This reduces the risk of poor photos and bad prints to almost nothing meaning that, with the help of the Los Angeles printing company, you are going to get some great art work.
A good Los Angeles printing company will be able to help you with choosing the right size for your photo, the right material on which to print and can even make changes to your photo through some color correction, exposure correction and other digital tools now available at photo printing stores. You may simply want a few printed photos for a scrap book or you may want a large canvas print to take up considerable wall space in your living room. When visiting a Los Angeles printing company, make sure they are able to make digital corrections to your photos, have a range of options for printing, from material through to size and that they have a passion for photography and the art of photos.
A printing store with all of these characteristics, your carefully taken and selected photos will be printed with exceptional quality, attention and care. All that is then left for you to do is to make use of these photo prints and decorate your home or office, or retain them for you and your families memories.

The art of photo printing

Photo printing is quickly becoming a lost art. It is unfortunate as many professional and enthusiastic amateur photographers will tell you that a photo is not a photo until it has been printed. One can understand that, with so many photos taken these days with cameras on cell phones and the cost effective availability of digital cameras, the incentive to print all the photos that you have taken is fairly low. Unfortunately, the extreme of almost no photos being taken is the reality. This is a real shame as the adage of those professional and amateur photographers is in fact correct. A photo is an art form and the art is not complete until the photo has been printed.
Those people that were forced to use film cameras in the past, because their simply were no digital cameras, will tell you the numerous benefits there are to having a photo printed, handling a physical photo and viewing the photo. Those photographers who printed their own photos in dark rooms smelling of chemicals, will also tell you that the science and delicacy of printing photos, by definition makes it an art. With so many options when both printing yourself or choosing to print at a print store, the LED screens that we now typically view and share our photos on, simply do not give our photos any justice.
Most of us will tend to go to a photo printing store to get our photo printing done. As a Los Angeles resident there are plenty of photo printing stores available. Ideally you want to choose one that still has the passion for the original art of photo printing. One such store is Prism Photo Imaging which has maintained their passion and expertise in photo printing despite the onslaught of the digital era of photography. What makes Prism Photo Imaging a great store for your photo printing is both their expertise in photo printing and the range of options they provide for photo printing. Their expertise allows them to suggest just the right paper on which to print to complement the photo, advice on and implementation of digital touch-ups to make good photos great and the provision of professional photo grade papers to truly show off your carefully constructed photos. Whether you are looking for standard photo album photo sizes, enlarged photos for home or office display or creative printing of photos on canvas or split printing of an image. No matter what the purpose for you printing your images, whether it be for décor or for sentimentalities sake, Prism Photo Imaging will be able to turn your photo images into photo art.
Don’t let yourself fall into the trap of never printing your photos, or if you have already, get back into photo printing. Your photos are worth more than just being stored on a hard drive or shared on social media. They are an art form and deserve to be respected as such. Take your images to Prism Photo Imaging and see how they can turn your photos into art.

Photo Prints done right!

It is not a photo until it is printed

Those people who were brought up using manual cameras and rolls of film will understand how a photo isn’t actually a photo until it has been printed. Manual cameras were only really surpassed by their digital equivalents in the early 2000’s and before that, and many people will recall this, you only saw the photos you took once you had collected your prints a few days later after having handed over your roll of film to your local photo printing store. There was no image preview and no deleting of accidental photos of your left foot or only half of Mom captured on the left side of the family portrait. Although you had taken the photo and was captured on a roll of film, your actual photo was the final print you received from your local photo printing store.

The same people brought up using manual cameras will also remember the rituals of showing your photos to family and friends. Passing around the photos while sitting around the table or the living room or paging slowly through a carefully put together photo album were all part of the joy of the good old days of photography and photos. Both fortunately and unfortunately, that era is largely gone for good, as digital cameras, social media and digital storage, mean that photos are no longer printed and are shared across social media or email rather than passed around in their physical form. Fortunately, we are taking more photos and capturing more of our lives as almost everyone has a digital camera with them at all times but unfortunately the joy of physical photos and the laughing, smiling and sometimes even crying when passing around photos is no longer done.

But it doesn’t have to be the case. Photo printing is still very much possible and those stores that you rush to, to print off large documents or to have business cards printed still does photo printing. And the quality of their photo prints is still excellent. Having physical photo prints is not just for sentimentality sake. There are creative and appreciative reasons for having physical photo prints. A printed photo brings tangibility to the photo. It brings a better sense of the reality of the photo and a tangibility to the mood, surroundings and environment of where the photo was taken. Being able to look at a photo from different angles and distances brings this tangibility that can never be achieved on a back lit, glaring LED screen. Printed photos have far more emotion than digital photo viewing and that is why many photographers will say that a photo is not a photo until it has been printed.

Everyone has a few special photos stored on their phone or computer that are worth printing and will bring so much more life and emotion to the photo when printed. You will just have to trust someone who was brought up in the non-digital era and then make sure you get down to your local photo printing store.
