OUR MISSION: To create effective, compelling, and unique identity packages. We

have developed processes focused on usability while maintaining a strong commitment to our clients' goals, schedule, and budget. OUR TEAM: We have assembled a team of talented, creative professionals with diverse backgrounds of work and creative experiences. Our team has expertise ranging from print specialist, advertising, marketing knowledge and sales to web and graphic design. We combine this knowledge along with foresight and strategic planning to approach new challenges with your overall business goals in mind. ADVANTAGES: Design Pros, Inc has a proven process that has been built and refined over 8 years. We take the time to get to know our customers and their marketing objectives from an unbiased outsider's perspective. We combine our knowledge, our customers' own perspectives and, quite often, their customers' perspectives to create an effective marketing strategy. This process helps us create a unique "branding blueprint" that gives all members of the creative team valuable insight and creates a foundation from which to design, develop and implement contracted media. Another reason to choose Design Pros, Inc is the quality of our current and past work. We invite you to take a look and form your own opinion. We specialize in more than a few industries, as limiting ourselves to just a few could result in a lack of creativity and true insight as well as the possibility of our work competing with itself. The truth is that you don't want your marketing company to know your business too well. It would lose a true outsider's perspective if it did...and that perspective is exactly what's required to build a successful branding or re branding campaign. Design Pros, Inc is a Concept-to-Completion company which uses in-house creative and technical talent as well as hand-picked vendors to offer full-service marketing and branding services to small, medium and large enterprises, as well as government agencies and non-profit organizations.

he Holidays are very tricky when it comes to décor. You try your best to get that “Department Store” look and for some reason you just can’t pull it off. You want to have that big Holiday party at your home or that great elegant end of year party for your office but you’re discouraged to make it look just right. That’s where I step in! Let a professional help you put it all together. I can help with your existing décor, or you can make a small investment and have the classic pieces for now and years to come. I can help from scratch or just the finishing touches – I’m here for you! Just give me a call and we can discuss your needs. Remember, the Holiday’s are creeping up on us very quickly and you don’t want to wait until the last minute.

cover from the inside of the tree to the outer tips of the branches. Use lights with green cords if you have a green tree. Use white cords if your tree is flocked.

Add the largest and most unique items first:

Lights: Use more than you think you need!! Use a MINIMUM of 100 lights per foot of tree. (Personally, I double that.) Always check to make sure they work before putting them on the tree. Use non-flashing lights. Flashing lights make a tree appear garish and fight with the ornaments for attention. Wrap the trunk and light from inside out, making sure to

"

"""

Forego the tree skirt, save some money and add more interest by using sheets, tablecloths, old drapery panels, or fabric remnants that coordinate with your color scheme. Coordinate your gift wrap to complete the look.

Put the largest items on the tree first because they take up the most space. Be sure to balance their placement over the tree. Use ribbon, bead strands (old jewelry is great), popcorn stings, florals, feathers, birds, and children’s toys. Use non-traditional items – large and small.

Here are a few tips for the Ornaments: Varying the sizes and shapes provides interest. Perfect Christmas Tree: This should compliment the room that the tree will be in. Layering varying versions of the same color (meaning, use shades of reds, greens, golds, browns, etc.) will provide more visual depth and richness. Select a theme or scheme that reflects your personality or things you already have or natural elements (which can help to keep the costs down). Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. A traditional, sophisticated tree doesn’t have to be red and gold. Black and white will give you a stunning formal look. Hot pink and lime green are fun non traditional colors.

Under the tree:

Cluster several ornaments together for a big impact. Use large ornaments on a small tree to diminish its slight size. Balance your tree’s ornaments using the majority of the largest ornaments at the bottom, medium size ones in the center and the smallest ornaments toward the top. Its good to mix it up, but a really large ornament at the top of the tree will look misplaced. Be careful not to clump – stand back and evaluate all sides, often. Use sprays and picks to fill in the gaps. This gives the tree maximum fullness. Hang ornaments that don’t belong with the theme to the inside of the tree; hang ones that advance the theme to the outer edges of the branches.

Use unusual toppers: Make a statement with large bows, sprays of eucalyptus, feathers, bells, berries, branches and glittery sprays. Make it large enough so that it doesn’t look dwarfed or like an after-thought.

How Promotional Products Can be Used to Help Your Company You may be considering promotional products, but wonder how they can help your company. Believe it or not, these tiny little investments can often provide you with a better return on your investment than billboards or bench ads in the community. Sure ads like billboards may be noticed as people are driving around town, but they are much more expensive than a giveaway item and will only appear in one place, where promotional products can travel around from place to place. In fact, promotional products can help your company in a number of ways you may have never thought of. Here are a few ideas of how these giveaways can help promote your company: Getting passed along. Items like pens or pencils are tiny investments, but the reality is that they are seen on a regular basis and often passed along to people who would never have heard of your company otherwise. Most businesses are going to make pens and pencils available to their customers and when they are accidentally removed from your premise, wouldn’t you rather they help promote your business to everyone who uses them?

cap will think about your business when they put them on and then everyone who sees them throughout the day will be reminded of your services as well. Can you ask for a better low-cost investment? Local goodwill. Consider giving away low-cost items at a community even in exchange for a mention as a sponsor. This will result in potential customers getting your promotional products for future use. Overall goodwill towards your company gets your neighbors thinking about how great it was of you to have provided free items at the event. Corporate gifts. If you have higher-end clientele, a simple tee shirt may not cut it, but a gourmet gift set or a stunning desk accessory may impress your potential client and leave a lasting impression in his or her memory.

Employee rewards. Not all promotional products need to be used for advertising. You can also provide employee incentives and small reminders at your company parties with these items. It’s always good to remember that a happy employee is a productive employee and just because you have a Daily reminders. Some things, like desk calendars and chip clips may not small business doesn’t mean you can’t afford to reward your employees from ever leave the possession of the person you gave them to, but they can be time to time. seen every day by that potential customer.

It’ll be remembered longer on paper. Paper stands the test of time. We have printed documents dating back over two millennia that can still be read and enjoyed today. No system upgrades or hard drive crashes can prevent us from going to a museum and viewing the original Dead Sea Scrolls or Leonardo da Vinci’s hand-drawn Vitruvian Man. And there are no multiple versions of Beethoven’s symphonies to confuse us, just his precious handwritten scores. The timelessness of paper is not reserved for the world’s great masterpieces. That scrapbook marking the special milestones in your life or those treasured handwritten notes tucked away in your keepsake box enjoy the same longevity – and continue to give you pleasure every time you see them. But seeing them is just part of the experience. You can also hold these precious memories in your hand, eliciting emotions no computer screen can. The Greeting Card Association (GCA) has researched the emotional bond associated with handwritten messages and found that nearly one-third of respondents to a national survey said they keep the special cards they receive “forever.”1 That said, it’s not just your heart that understands the power of paper, so does your mind. A number of studies have been conducted on the efficacy of learning on screen compared to paper, and it has been proven that paper is a better tool for fully assimilating information. Researchers at Cambridge University based this conclusion on a number of factors ranging from the ease and speed of visually/spatially locating content on a printed page compared to a screen, to the distractions of reading online, and the functionality of a screen-based document compared to a printed version (e.g. note taking, document sharing).2 Anne Magnan, a Norwegian researcher publishing in the Journal of Research in Reading, declared: “The feeling of literally being in touch with the text is lost when your actions – clicking with the mouse, pointing on touch screens, or scrolling with keys or on touch pads – takes place at a distance from the digital text, which is somehow, somewhere inside the computer, the e-book or the mobile phone. Materiality matters... One main effect of the intangibility of the digital text is that of making us read in a shallower, less focused way.”3 And, according to the experts at Cambridge, less focus speaks to a lack of full understanding and compromises long-term retention of information. University-level students have also participated in studies to assess whether traditional textbooks are still the way to go, or if an e-book or pdf lecture notes serve them better in their academic pursuits. A recent example is the Kindle DX experiment conducted by the University of Virginia Darden School of Business, which revealed that 75-80% of its MBA students using the device would not recommend it for in-class learning. They felt the eReader was too rigid for use in the fast-paced classroom environment, noting that you can’t move be-

tween pages, documents, charts and graphs simply or easily enough compared to the paper alternatives.4 An earlier pilot study at Princeton University concluded that the classroom experience was “somewhat worsened” by using an eReader compared to printed textbooks.5 Participating students admitted that the absence of paper documents made group discussions difficult and that it was hard to go back and review e-materials later in the semester. They also felt that the inability to efficiently take notes on an e-book lessened retention. Based on the work of researchers from around the world, one could draw a parallel between the relative permanence of paper and how long the memories you get from it last. While the screen is by nature more illusory, paper remains with you as long as you want it to. So whether you think you might be a 21st century Great Master, the next Dan Brown or even if you’re just a fan of the personalized note or an avid scrapbooker, your work can leave a lasting impression in the minds and hearts of your friends and fans.

Don’t Print This Email We’ve all seen the message.

Tucked neatly into emails, between a friendly signoff and an inspirational quote, it advises readers to think about the environment before they print — and suggests that if they still choose to hit the big green button, they’ll be striking a major blow to our nation’s forests. But how many of us have hovered our cursors over the word “print,” trying to choose between the future of our planet and the ability to annotate documents, take home a hard copy, or work on a report with all our resources at hand? Paper has always been an essential part of our lives, from our first days in school to our everyday work on the job. So, why the sudden push to “delete”this valued resource, in favor of an all-digital world — the much-talked-about, but seldom-realized“paperless”lifestyle? The phenomenon began with the best of intentions. After all, who wouldn’t agree that paper is a valuable resource, and senseless waste should be avoided? But what about the aspects of paper that just can’t be replicated in the digital realm? From """

ease of sharing documents, to a familiar sense of comfort, to the way the brain processes information, paper still plays an important role in our lives. And paper manufacturers like Domtar are taking great care to ensure it also plays a role in supporting sustainable forest management. So, maybe it’s not a matter of choosing “to print or not to print,” as much as making the right choice for the task at hand. Below are a few guidelines to help decide when to print, when to save, and why. Think before you print. Good advice. Everyone should be responsible when considering whether or not an item should be printed. It may help to think about whether you really need a printout, and how long you plan to keep it. If it’s an email you can quickly take care of on-screen, and won’t need to reference again, ask yourself whether printing it out really adds value. If not, you may want to skip printing this time. However, if an item needs to be read in detail, written on, and remembered, paper is a reasonable and responsible choice — especially when it’s Domtar paper. Set the records straight.If you’ve ever been audited, you may have an idea of what it means to keep accurate records — and perhaps more importantly, what it means if you don’t. Hard drives crash, backup systems often fail; and many of us simply fail to keep accurate digital records in the first place. Organizing financial documents on paper lets us see every transaction as a physical object, and file it in a physical place. Maybe that’s why paper has been proven to do a better job in helping us keep track of money matters. Just be sure to save a copy off-site. Collaborate and connect. When it comes to connecting with friends online, social media sites have a definite advantage — but in business, sharing and discussing a printed document is still extremely efficient. Maybe it’s because it’s easier to ignore an email than a stack of papers in your inbox. You can jot down messages, affix sticky notes, and show it and discuss with a colleague, your team, or your boss. Paper plays an important role in the way we do business —and when it’s used responsibly, it can improve productivity and efficiency. Make an investment that’s worth more than the paper it’s printed on. It’s not just about what you print — it’s also about what you print it on. By choosing an environmentally responsible paper from Domtar, you help ensure a sustainable future for the forests that provide the paper you use every day. Domtar paper is certified by internationally recognized organizations like the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®). Domtar is committed to responsible forest management, and has a preference for FSC certification where available. Sustainable forest management practices include the maintaining of High Conservation Value Forests, habitat protection for endangered species, biodiversity for healthy forest ecosystems and safe places for animals to repopulate and plant species to thrive. Unlike fossil fuels, gemstones and natural gas, which take millions of years to be restored, trees are a truly renewable resource — and the forest products industry plants millions of new trees each day. Paper is also 100% recyclable. So, once you print that document (on an environmentally responsible paper), don’t just throw it away — give it a second life. Get together. Both electronic and print media are important, and both impact the environment in their own ways — from the use of natural resources, to energy consumption, to batteries and hazardous waste. But with the right paper and the right choices, it is possible to communicate efficiently, and responsibly. So, should you print this email? (We’ll leave this one up to you.) "


It’s OK to Use Paper! Guilt is a useless emotion. Yet “think before you print” messages at the bottom of e-mails seem to want to make people feel bad about printing out documents even when they really need them for work or personal business. In reality, both electronic and print media impact the environment in their own ways – and both have important roles to play in our communications. It doesn’t have to be one or the other. It’s a question of balance and choice of the right tool for the task at hand.

Paper because Paper has proven itself as an effective method of communication for over 2,000 years. It remains a staple of business correspondence1 and is used in millions of offices worldwide because it offers benefits that simply aren’t provided by digital medium. We absorb information more fully when reading it on paper compared to on screen2. We work better together when discussing a printed document than through digital exchange3. Keeping paper records of our financial transactions can help us keep better track of our money and save us a lot of grief if problems arise4. These are just some of the examples of why paper continues to have its place in today’s digital world. And there are many environmentally-responsible options on the market, like Domtar’s EarthChoice line, that make paper a good choice for meeting your communication needs on those occasions when digital just won’t do. Plus, once you are through using your printed documents, you can always give them a second life by recycling them!

The fact is… There are environmental repercussions to the use of both printed and digital media, and both sides of the story should be taken into account in your decision about what’s “green”. Here are some facts you may or may not know: Paper is 100% recyclable. In fact, it is one of the most recycled products on the planet5. There are also many responsible paper choices on the market, like Domtar’s EarthChoice line, made with fiber sourced from forests managed in accordance with strict environmental standards and/or with post-consumer fiber. The adoption of such standards has helped make forestry, paper and packaging among the most sustainable industries in existence.6 Some will suggest to you that going digital is better for the planet and that printing is somehow irresponsible. But the repercussions of going “paperless” are complex and, when looked at closely, show that the increasing use of information and communication technologies has serious implications for the environment.7 Feeling a bit confused? Well, here is one thing you can be sure of: Domtar is committed to making paper in a way that considers the good of our planet – and you can print responsibly on our paper.

The state of today’s forests You are not destroying the forest when you use printed media and paper made by Domtar. In fact, contrary to what many say and believe, North America’s forests (where we get our fiber from) remain healthy and prolific. Part of the reason for this is because we have adopted responsible forest management practices under internationally respected forest management standards like the Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) and Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI). Among other things, these standards require that for every tree harvested in a managed forest, several more are replanted or naturally regenerated in its place. Sustainable forest management practices also help protect habitats and rare or threatened ecosystems8, providing safe places for animals to repopulate and plant species to thrive. Trees, which are the primary raw material for making paper, are a renewable resource. What’s more, only a tiny percentage of the world’s trees are being cut down for paper production (e.g. about 1% in Canada9), compared to other human activities like agriculture, urban development and mining, which removes forestland permanently. So if you love the forest, using Domtar paper responsibly is a sound environmental choice. Both paper and digital media have environmental footprints. Both also have their purpose and undeniable benefits. To suggest the contrary in message at the bottom of an electronic message is misleading and aims to guilt people into making an “either/or” choice that just isn’t necessary. There are many reasons why you can feel OK about printing an e-mail if it helps you be more effective in your work or life – especially when it’s on Domtar paper. _____________________________ 1

Print is an art form. When you come across something that just blows you away, you’ll sometimes think to yourself “Now THAT is a work of art!” It could be anything, from a hot rod to a great pair of stilettos or, more conventionally, a painting or a sculpture. It can also be a beautiful printed piece. The printing press was invented in the 15th century by the German Johannes Gutenberg – and it has been wowing audiences ever since. This early technology gave rise to an explosion of printed documents, and provided access to information and enlightenment to the reading and listening public. Illustrations soon were added to the texts, bringing them an even broader level of appeal and opening up a new world for non-literate audiences. Political and religious messages were communicated via caricatures and stories told via comic strips – often without a single word on the paper. It was an artistic revolution for the masses! Print remains a medium of choice for today’s readers, despite the growing appeal of e-publications. In the U.S. alone, a projected 316,480 new printed books and editions were published in 2010, a 5% increase from the previous year.1 If you factor in self-published books, that number increases exponentially. In fact, CreateSpace, the self-publishing arm of Amazon.com, says that its books increased by 80% from 2009 to 2010.2 And speaking of books, it’s a simple fact that many people do judge a book by its cover. No one reads a book before buying it and authors/publishers have just seconds to grab the reader, so it’s crucial that the cover and back cover texts be compelling. An eye-catching and skillfully printed dust jacket can actually mean the difference between success and obscurity for an author. In a similar vein, there’s the enduring impact of album and CD cover art. This distinctive art form is a favorite topic of discussion for musicologists and music lovers alike. Case in point, Rolling Stone magazine has a special section of its website devoted to the top 100 album covers.3 Rock/pop music historian Robert Benson discusses how a listener’s emotional connection to an album encompasses both the music and the artwork that accompanies it: “At times cover art is part of that emotional connection we have with music. Anyone who has owned a record collection has spent time pouring over an album cover while listening to the music.”4


Many fine artists also revel in the intimacy of paper and ink, using time-honored techniques like the woodcut, silk screen/serigraphy, etching, intaglio, aquatint, monotype and calligraphy to convey their visions.5 Artists around the world are pushing the boundaries of what print can do, bringing renewed life to a craft that has stimulated the human senses for centuries. Professional photographers also often favor print for exhibiting their art, even if their cameras are digital. Indeed, experts will tell you that it’s thanks to print that we still enjoy much of the artistic output of the last several centuries. They also express concern over the loss of contemporary art pieces that are strictly digital: “The threat is very real that, unless we do something, we will have a ‘lost generation’ in terms of our cultural heritage,” says Dr. David Anderson, who is helping to save the more complex artworks of the digital age from oblivion. “Past generations captured who they were and what they did via museums and books, but the pace of technological development in the digital age has now outstripped our capacity for preservation.”6 And let’s not forget the craft involved in today’s technology-driven commercial printing. The modern printing press is a magical engine of design that can churn out exciting print pieces through sophisticated techniques like foil stamping, embossing,

and finishing. Just think of the stylish packaging of the Apple products or a slick print ad in a magazine or even a clever point of sale display. Thanks to digital and on-demand printing, print customers can order just what they need, when they need it – with spectacular visual results. Online service providers even allow you to create your own work of art, printing personalized books with your family pics and stories. Print can be a treat for the senses and food for the soul. It’s an art in and of itself with a special ability to showcase the miracles that simple paper and ink can do.
