One day my tennis instructor asked our double’s group, “What’s the most important position on the tennis court?”
Answer: The Ready Position.
The Value of Being Ready
A client phoned me last week needing a new business card and WordPress website Home page…in 6 days. It was not an impossible request because (1) we’ve worked together since she started her business three years ago, and (2) she had all the important pieces in place:
- new website URL
- web host that services WordPress websites
- style guide including headline and body fonts, RBG and Hex values
- copy for both the business card and home page
- professionally photographed headshot
- header image that could be used for both print and web (business cards and website)
Price, Turn-Around, Quality: Choose One
As a print designer for over 20 years I’ve produced hundreds of jobs, on all types of machines: letterpress, 1, 2, 4 and 7 color offset presses, and all forms of digital printing. Depending upon the need I’m able to match the job up to printing device.
For this particular job, a one-day turn-around on 4-color digital offset was the perfect solution. Plus it was local and the best price in town.
Are You Ready?
Sometimes the most difficult part of a job is knowing where to begin. Whether you need a business card or a one-page WordPress website, the above list will help get you ready. You’ll not only be off to a great start, it will even help you can save time and money when you need something…yesterday.
