Printing and Signage Services Sample Proposal
Print Services for Nu-Sci Supplements
Congratulations on your new business license for Nu-Sci Supplements. The biggest challenge for new businesses such as yours is to get the word out quickly and professionally to the public about your products and services. Every new business needs to establish their brand, with a consistent, professional message and appearance.
We understand that you plan to sell your products primarily through your online store but as you know, online businesses need print products, too. As a supplement business selling to the general public, you’ll need business cards, letterhead, flyers, and brochures to introduce your personnel and your products. You may want a print catalog as well as your online catalog. From time to time, you’ll want to mail or hand out print advertisements and coupons.
And when it comes time to go to trade shows, you’ll need banners and table displays and signage of various types. This is where Pederson Print Services comes in. While you are the experts in selling supplements; we are the experts in full-service printing.
By using one company for all your printing needs, you’ll save time and money and always present a professional face to your market. We’re local, we’re experienced, and we’re eager to team up with you. We invite you to review this proposal to see what everything we can do for you. We will call you to schedule a meeting on April 22.
Thank you for your consideration, and welcome to the Phoenix business community. Every new business needs to spread the word about their goods and services to as big an audience as possible. Pederson Print Services is here to provide efficient print services at an economical cost. To begin with, we recommend the following items to help your company establish your presence.
Business cards – All your employees should have personalized business cards that they can hand to everyone they meet. In addition, you may want a general business card to display on your reception counter for walk-in customers to take with them. Flyers – One-page announcements are great for sending out in mail packets, tucking into packages of purchases, and displaying on business counters everywhere. Announce your new company to everyone with a flyer.
Brochures – You have an extensive list of supplements you want to advertise, and you may want to provide your customers with more information in printed form. We can help you create three- or four-panel brochures to fill this need. Signage – Does your new company need a roll-up banner, posters, or sandwich boards to display on the street.
We do all that, and more. See the Signage page in this packet for a complete list of signs we can provide.
Call us at 480-555-5551 to get started. Let’s get Nu-Sci Supplements on a fast track to immediate success. Pederson Print Services specializes in Print on Demand services.
This means you no longer have to order and store thousands of copies of marketing materials that may be quickly outdated. You can order as many or as few as you want of any item exactly when you need it. For maximum efficiency, the design for each item should be set up in advance, so that all we need to do is place the order for copies. Our expert design team is eager to assist you in creating your plan for any or all of the following.
Booklets, brochures, business cards, coupons, flyers, mailers, notecards, posters, labels, letterheads, stickers If you already have a design and all the text in hand, all these projects can generally be set up within a day, and printing can take place quickly, sometimes on the same day. Appointments must be made in advance with our print specialists so they can devote their time to your individual project. Catalogs, annual reports, multipage books and booklets We can produce two-sided multi-page products with either spiral comb binding or perfect binding.
We work with many authors to self-publish their memoirs or how-to books. The time needed to lay out, print, and assemble your final product depends on many factors, including page count. Our design and print consultants can answer all your questions.
Large format printing on nearly any material Pederson Print Services can print on magnetic signs, giant bus banners, canvas, thick sandwich boards, window or wall clings, you name it. We have won many awards for our creative trade show signage. We do work with subcontractors to produce many of these specialty items, so advance scheduling is a necessity. Consult with our specialists as soon as you can for best results.
Finishing touches Do you need laminated labels, a booklet of tear-out forms, or a workbook with three-hole punches. We do it all—just tell us what you need, and we’ll do our best to make it happen. As you can see by the descriptions above, we are a full-service print shop. If you can envision it, we can produce it.
Every business owner understands that developing a strong recognizable company brand is an absolute necessity these days. But Pederson Print Services knows that money is often tight for startups, and hiring a design firm may be outside your budget. That’s why we have designers on staff.
Working with you, we can bring your ideas to life and create a consistent, appealing look and feel to all your documents and marketing materials. We will work as a team in the following ways.
You know who your competition is. Compile a collection of their logos and marketing materials for comparison. Seek out logos and designs that you particularly like to give our designers a head start.
How the Project Will Be Designed
After consulting with you and reviewing your competitors’ designs and discussing your preferences, our designers will come up with three basic designs for you to choose from. This design will become your brand, and will be used on all your print projects.
You should generally plan on a two-week design schedule, with your initial design consultation as Day 1. The actual schedule may vary depending on the availability of our designers.
Reasons for Project Design
You never want to copy another company’s design, and you don’t want to do without an appealing design, either. You need a unique, recognizable brand for your organization. Our designers will combine elements to create a visual presence that represents you and attracts your customers.
After you have agreed on a specific design, that artwork will be used on all your print projects to provide a consistent professional message. We keep your design on hand for quick reference so we can produce materials for you with only a phone call. Signage is a huge category, and as previously referenced in this proposal, we are experts in printing on almost any material in any format.
Say, for example, Nu-Sci Supplements needs to advertise a new vitamin product. Not only can we produce flyers and coupons and traditional small print pieces, but we can announce your new product with banners and magnetic signs and sandwich boards. Trade show signage is a specialty of ours. We are experienced in production of all the following types of signage.
Banners We can provide banners in many sizes, from as short as 36" in length to as long as 240" yes, twenty feet. Print on plastic or fabric, and use a variety of fasteners on each end. Window or Wall Clings Need a sign to stick to a window or wall. Our clings can be as small as 12" by 24" or as large as 5’ x 8’ with transparent or opaque backgrounds.
Outdoor Signage Whether you need signs for this weekend’s sidewalk sale or signs for the outside of your building that will last through all sorts of weather for years, we can accommodate you. We can print on plastic, glass, doors, wood, and even on metal. Trade Show Signage and Promotional Items You want your booth to stand out in a crowded trade show.
We can produce all sorts of displays for you, including sandwich boards, standing signs up to six feet all, and tabletop signs. You’ll want to have something on hand for attendees to take away, too. In addition to the usual business cards and brochures, you might consider printing your message on pens, coffee cups, mouse pads, pin-on buttons, and magnets. Pederson Print Services has a variety of printers that can produce many common items, and we work with subcontractors to create specialty products.
If you can envision it, we can print it. At Pederson Print Services, we pride ourselves on flexibility, but we also strive to be as efficient and cost-effective as possible. When submitting a project to Pederson Print Services, having the following information in hand will make the overall process more efficient.
If you have completely designed and laid out your print project, it’s best to submit the final file to be printed in PDF format. If you have separate pieces of artwork to be included, please submit them as JPG files saved at a minimum of 300 dpi. Text to be included should be in Microsoft Word or an editable PDF file. Please save all font information within PDF files.
We always do our best to match fonts that you want, but if fonts are not included in your submission, there’s a chance that some fonts may be substituted. It goes without saying that the more finished elements you can provide us at the beginning of a project, the faster the setup and printing process will go. But rest assured that we are happy to work with you to achieve exactly the result you want, no matter where we start. Pederson Print Services prides itself on being a full-service printing company.
When you set up an online account with us, you can easily order products or services via the internet. We provide the following services.

For commonly requested projects such as business cards and brochures, we can provide you with a variety of templates to make the work foolproof. With your guidance and final approval, our in-house experts will produce the master file for specialty projects such as outdoor signage and trade show products. Printing After we have your master file on hand, you can submit print requests online or by calling us.
With print on demand, we can print one copy at a time or produce mass quantities for you. Scheduling will depend on quantities and the complexity of the items you order, as well as on other projects that may be ongoing at the time, but we guarantee that we will meet or beat each delivery deadline as promised to you. Assembly and Binding Services If needed, we can assign a team to assemble your print jobs in three-ring binders with tabbed dividers and other types of inserts. We also do spiral binding and perfect binding on site.
Packaging and Shipping At times you’ll want to ship print jobs to customers or tradeshows. We can do that for you.
