printing ...

From business cards through to signage, printed/hardcopy media plays a major part in a company’s brand awareness budget, as does the designing of.

With the experienced backup of our own art team together with access to proven trade printers, BlueShark have been offering our clients ‘one-stop branding’ serviced by competitive pricing.

design ...

You may not be working with a designer or your company’s art department may currently not be available to create for you. Either way, we also offer the skilled talents of our own print and brand-experienced graphic artists at an affordable rate.

supplying images ...

Most printed media requires high resolution images for quality reproduction. When supplying images for printed products such as flyers or brochures, their sizing should be at least 300dpi at 100% of their intended sizing. 150dpi is our preferrence for larger signage and 110 dpi for billboards.

A fairly good guide as to whether an image is suited for standard print reproduction is to check you can zoom in quite closely on your computer or table screen before pixelation or blurring occurs.

Images found on the internet are often under copyright. When for use of public brand advertising, it is recommend the images licence/s is purchased to avoid future litigations.
