Project Description

We wanted to create a direct mail piece that would grab people's attention and show off our printing capabilities without feeling too "sales-y." Our solution? Create a magazine that's beautifully designed and contains interesting content.

Best of Local features interviews with eight local business owners and bloggers from the greater Philadelphia area. Alongside these interviews are beautiful photographs representing their work. It was sent to our in-house customer list and was so well-received that customers who did not receive a copy contacted us to request one!

Production Lesson(s)

The first proof of this book has regular lamination on the cover, but we ended up selecting Velvet Matte Lamination for the final print job. This lends the book a velvety-soft finish that makes this book almost as fun to hold as it is to look at. Holding the first version of the book is a completely different experience than holding the velvet laminated version. Print design gives you the opportunity to engage all of the senses in a way that digital design cannot, and we have definitely learned the power of appealing to the sense of touch. ”
