4 Tips for Creating Cost-Effective Posters

4 Tips for Creating Cost-Effective Posters

Now that school is back in session, there will be hundreds of activities happening on campus. Ordering posters and banners from outside companies can become pretty costly if you aren’t careful, however, there are other cheaper options, such as creating your own.

White Background: Printing banners and posters with a busy background can use up large amounts of ink costing yourself more money. By using colored or patterned paper, you eliminate the need to print the pattern yourself. This way, the only ink you’re using is for the actual text on the poster.

Black and White: Keeping your posters simple and in black and white is a cheaper option than printing posters in full color.

Keep the text simple: More isn’t always better. Sometimes more is just more. Keep your posters simple and to the point, making them easy to read and understand. Sometimes it only takes one simple statement to make a big impact.

The Importance of DPI in Printers

The Importance of DPI in Printers

More often than not, a printer’s specification list in any given product catalog includes a “DPI resolution.” Simply put, DPI stands for “dots per inch,” and is one of the most important attributes to consider when selecting your ideal printer. DPI is determined by the amount of dots of ink that can be printed in a square inch.

Much like computer monitors, printers produce content based on a certain resolution. But instead of pixels, printers produce “dots” made up of different colors that together formulate the text or images being printed.  The higher the DPI, the sharper the print.

Printers often have various DPI levels, depending on the settings. For example, a setting more favorable for printing text typically has a DPI of 300-600. Printing photos and other graphics in color will look best with a higher DPI, often into the thousands.

Sure, there will always be a need for cable-based Ethernet services to connect computers in large corporate offices. But for many small to mid-size businesses, a simple wireless access point can serve as the foundation for the company’s digital solutions. Nowadays, it’s difficult to find any business that doesn’t utilize a wireless network for online access in some shape or form.
