What’s the difference between bright white and natural white inkjet art paper?

We found this while browsing the internet and thought it would be good to share…

“When choosing an inkjet art paper, one factor to consider is the paper color. The whiteness of the paper affects whether the printed colors look clean and sharp or softer and more natural.

Bright White inkjet art papers use optical brightening agents (OBAs) to make the fibers in the paper look pure white. Over a period of years, the whitening effects of the brighteners can fade, making the paper itself look yellowish. Print colors that started out looking bright and bold can look a bit faded, even if the ink colors have remained stable. Bright white papers are great for eye-catching photos for shorter-term use.

Natural White inkjet art papers can have a slightly warm undertone because no brighteners are added to the make the fibers in the paper look brighter. The whiteness of the paper comes from the natural whiteness of the fibers used to make the paper. Natural white papers have a creamy whiteness that can enhance the look of black-and-white photographs, portraits, and digitally restored old photographs. Natural white inkjet art papers are considered more archival because the color of the paper won’t change as much over time.”

Why Should You Send Corporate Calendars to your Clients or Customers?

Keeping your details in front of your Clients and Customers has never been so important.

You can never under-estimate the importance of keeping in touch with your customers, and pro-actively addressing their needs. Once you have a customer or client, sitting back can be the worst thing to do. Paying attention to that customer however, letting them know you are checking up on them, and keeping your brand in their minds will work wonders for repeat business.

E-mails may be an essential part of your marketing strategy, but these days we are all bombarded with them on a daily basis whether you want them or not and there is always that chance that the one important e-mail you do want to look at has gone away with the fairies to that Junk Bin in the Sky.

The perfect way to keep your details in your client’s eye-line is to give them a Professionally Produced Corporate Desk or Wall Calendar.

This says “Thank you to your Client for their loyalty”, or can also “Send Love” to your family and friends.

These can be printed with Corporate Logo, Company Name, Address, Telephone, E-mail and Website – You can add a monthly Special Offer, or your events throughout the year. We have a large database of pictures on the website, or supply your own.

Choose a design that stands out – if the recipient likes the Calendar they are more likely to keep it around for longer, so don’t skimp on the design! QuickPrint have a professional design studio who are always willing to help you along the way.

There are 7 types available:- A3 and A4 size Portrait, A4 Landscape, Long, Plastic Single or Double Plastic CD Case and Wallet-type Calendars – like a Business Card.

You can find all details including prices on our e-commerce website at the following address: https://www.quickprint.co.uk/products/calendars

Above all, remember – people may try to apply logic to purchases and business relationships but ultimately emotion makes the final decision – if you keep in touch with a client and show you care, you will build a loyal customer that is more interested in sticking with you than making price comparisons or considering other options.

END TO END – John O’ Groats to Land’s End – 866 Miles in 8 Days from 10th to 17th July 2016 for “Children’s Hospice South West”

Mark Taylor (pictured), has been a Graphic Designer at QuickPrint for 6 years. He has teamed up with Andrew Green (an old school friend of 30 years), to pedal the Classic Challenge, cycling from John O’ Groats to Land’s End in Only 8 Days! – 866 miles of roads passable by cyclists, the furthest possible distance across the British Isles, End to End.
This classic challenge is on many a cyclist’s ‘to do’ or ‘bucket’ list. Covering more than 12 counties, through stunning scenery, one of the toughest cycling achievements, from the Northernmost point of the UK through the Lochs of Great Glen, along the stunning mountains of the Lake District, through the rolling hills of Dartmoor to the rocky cliffs and pounding seas of Land’s End.
John O’ Groats to Land’s End (also called ‘JOG-LE’ or ‘End to End’), will test you to your limit, but it is the most fabulous way to see the UK and one of the biggest achievements you are ever likely to accomplish on a bicycle!
Their training regime since February this year has been gruelling, covering over 3,000 miles and countless hours on two wheels – pedalling every single one of them.
Mark and Andrew are funding the entire journey and donating all money raised to “Children’s Hospice South West” – Donate to this worthy cause on the Just Giving website at www.justgiving.com/MarkandAndrew2016.
