Spring time is Print time

In our world here all time is print time but we're happy Spring is finally here and the weather forecast suggests it should actually feel like it soon!

We'd like to blog share more often but keeping up with the Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Instagram (our newest fav sharing app) we tend to not make it into the blogosphere as much as we'd like.

Check out some recent card set up and printing we've done...
Disclaimer! We are better designers, file setters and printers than our photography suggests so please look past the low lighting and slight blurs... the prints are perfect!

We're a Print Shop in Cincinnati

A lot of people stop in the shop here, see samples of printed t-shirts, banners, signs, decals, water bottles, magnets, sweatshirts and more and still do not understand what we do.

We are a Cincinnati Print Shop, kind of like a copy shop except, not really. We don't have a stand alone copy machine. What we do is either print your designs on the materials of your choice, which we supply, or we work with you to design your logo, set up all files for your sign layout, window lettering, vehicle advertising, business cards, boxes, packaging, bags, and more.

We can do single color printing, vinyl cut decals and stickers or full color digital printed items.
Some items we offer have no minimum. We can print you one funny t-shirt for your grandma or hundreds for your company picnic.

Have the programs to set up print-ready artwork but not sure how to begin? Give us a call, we can provide templates for most items and all the file specs you'll need to set up your ow print-ready artwork. Don't know how to set up print-ready files or just don't want to? We can do it for you, no problem.



Now to ramble some things we offer.... of course SIGNS and T-SHIRTS but also including, but not limited to, stickers, yard signs, flyers, canvas prints, decals, sweatshirts, buttons, vinyl, notepads, presentation folders, brochures, banners, bookmarks, CD inserts, stamps, envelopes, embossers, business cards, greeting cards, postcards, letterhead, metal signs, plastic signs, corrugated signs, booklets, foamboard, gatorboard, alumacore signs, sports programs, posters, and more.

We are currently offering vinyl cut lettering, full color digital printing, flat stationary printing, raised thermography printing, embossing, UV spot printing, foil printing, akuafoil printing, screenprinting, etching, 4D printing, and more I'm sure I'm not thinking of.

If you need to print something onto something we probably have a way to get that idea completed. Give us a call or email to discuss your printing ideas. 513-731-1122

Welcome to the Neighborhood

New to the neighborhood is Tres Belle Cakes and Coffee Shop located at 400 West Benson Street in the Reading Bridal District. If you didn't know, Reading Ohio offers over 25 different wedding related businesses and services, all within a two mile radius, including our printing services for stamps, invitations, save the date items, printed apparel and keepsakes.

Although new to the neighborhood, Tres Belle Cakes is not a new business. The owner, Tracy, has been baking cakes for over 8 years. She has perfected the craft so you can be at ease when you plan your wedding or other party cakes and treats. Your cake is going to be delicious and possibly look (almost) too pretty to eat.

Très Belle specializes in bridal and baby shower cakes, birthday and other party cakes, cookies and cupcakes to make every event memorable.  Their shop is also available to host bridal showers, brunches, birthday parties and more!

Today we stopped by the shop to deliver their new hanging signs. Big and bright with soft, attractive colors in their logo make these signs stand out and pleasing to the eye.

You won't be able to miss their two entrances at this corner location.
The main entrance is on Reading Rd, the other, a side door entrance on Church Street.

The shop is a wonderful, comfortable space with lots of cakes, cookies and treats to choose from each day. Grab a coffee and a seat along one of their many big windows, take a load off and be wowed by how yummy what you picked from the case is.

This photo is a lovely sampling of two arts we love.
Printing and Baking



Pictured here is a 2 sided digital full color print on 1/4" PVC plastic and 3 amazing treats we picked up to sample.

On the left a dark chocolate cupcake w/ raspberry goodness in there, a carrot cake cupcake with cream cheese icing, which might have been my favorite and upfront there had a tag that said AMAZEBALLS! Red Velvet cake donuts with cream cheese icing. hubba hubba

Welcome to the neighborhood Tres Belle, we're happy to have you and your wonderful baked goodies.

MARRY ME T-SHIRT

BABY WILL YOU MARRY ME?
A guy ordered this to pick up is girl from the airport. He was not concerned about her answer. We wish them all the fun and love in the world!

also here I'm checking out Flickr blog sharing.... stay tuned.

Do you tumblr?

I downloaded tumblr and bloggeroid offered to share here. Let's give it a try...

Printed packaging and folders

Do you have questions about custom printed packaging and presentation folders? We have answers.



Different card stocks, colors, and print methods are available.
Full color flat printing, raised thermography, embossed and foil printing.

Snap lock boxes, tuck end boxes, pillow packs, purse and gable boxes.


We can supply you file templates with all the specs to properly set up your artwork to create print-ready art or we can set up your designs for you. Let us know how we can help.

For this post I'm trying Bloggeroid app. It doesn't seem to have a preview post option so this could look like anything once published. Both bloggeroid and blogit! require manual input of html code for [b]bold[/b] or [i]italic[/i] text so there probably won't be a lot of that from my phone posts.

Baby Shower Banners

It's been awhile since we've shared here, I've downloaded a couple apps to check out in hopes to share more projects with ease.
This post I'm trying Blogit! App on android. I like the layout ok. I'll report later which app I settle on.

the photo upload feature is ok so far. I'll see later if this uploads smoothly and how it looks on a computer. If it goes well you will be looking at these 2 baby shower orders.

This welcome baby banner with cute rubber ducks is a 6' x 3' banner with full color digital print on 13oz vinyl so it can be used indoor or outdoor. The baby shower yard signs will add visibility of location for the guests with a full color print on corrugated plastic. The yard signs come with stepstakes.



World Premiere! This 13oz weatherproof vinyl banner was designed to compliment their baby shower's cinema premiere theme. The banner has full color print on 1 side and is 4' x 2'.



Drop us an email or give a call with information about your next big announcement. We would like to help you plan your custom printed shower announcements, signs, t-shirts, stamps or any other personalized print needs.

we try to blog....

keeping up with all the online bits is tough when you're working hard in the studio.

I wonder if we post more blogs, if we'll have less spam comments. Every few days the most recent blog post gets a comment, usually in characters that I can not read. sometimes just odd phrases.

So here we go. blogging... and wondering if anyone reads.

We're on our facebook page most. It's so quick and easy to say hello and post recent projects.
www.facebook.com/ExpressServiceSigns

We're on twitter too twitter.com/SignShopCincy

and of course you can browse our website for some portfolio samples and contact information however, it's not as LIVE as the other two networking site.

We enjoy our "likers" and recently announced that at 303 likers we'll draw names from those likers for a free custom t-shirt or $20 off any order.

Whether you check us out here or there we'd like to work with you on your next print project.
