Business cards are an essential part of your marketing arsenal. A unique one will make you and your business stand out. Here are more reasons why you need one:

For networking. Going to an event, party, or gathering where there will be new faces? By handing out your business card, you can easily market yourself to potential clients and customers with little effort.

As a convenient way to exchange info.  While mostly everyone carries a smart phone, not everyone stores their business contacts in it, or wants to take it out and start inputting info. A business card has everything your new contact needs in one place.

For a professional look. A quality business card shows you care about the details, important when it comes to attracting new customers and clients.

To show your personal brand. You can personalize your business card so it’s a reflection of you and your business. And we can help!

Bellia offers a wide variety of durable stock paper and finishes to choose from for your custom business cards. We have a talented graphic design team available that can create a unique card for you that reflects your brand and image.

What to Include on an Invoice

Samantha Weber November 24, 2017 Uncategorized

The invoice is vital to any business transaction. In a sea of never ending papers, it’s important that your customer can easily find the invoice from your company, clearly understand what services they are receiving, and how much they owe.

Here’s what you should include on your invoice:

Company logo. Business forms should be a continuation of your brand, making it easy for the customer to know which company this specific invoice is from.

The word “invoice.” The customer will want to make sure they have the correct document in hand.

Company/seller contact information.  If the customer has a question they can easily get in touch.

Customer contact information.  The seller may need to follow up with a customer, or deliver the goods or services to the customer’s address.

Invoice Number.  The number will help the seller easily pull up and track info on the goods/services purchased.

Date invoice was issued. Always include the date the invoice was created.

Date balance is due. The seller should be clear about when the balance is due, and how much they will owe if payment is late.

Balance owed. The seller should include the total amount of goods/services purchased, balance due, taxes, handling fees and any other charges associated with the transaction.

Description of goods or services. The customer should know exactly what he/she is getting and the quantity.

Thank you.  It’s always a nice gesture to thank customers for their business. You can even include promotional discount codes for future orders here as well.

 

At Bellia, we have a wonderful graphic design team that can help you design new forms for your business with your logo, company information and color themes, or you can supply your files to us for professional high-quality printing at affordable prices.  Besides invoices, other business forms frequently ordered from our customers include: Order forms, estimates, receipt books, NCR-carbonless sheets, contracts, and personnel and HR documents.  Our goal is to help you represent your brand and clearly inform your clients with effective eye-catching forms for your business.

Planning Your Holiday Party with Paper

Whether you are planning a holiday party for a large office, or a smaller gathering for family and friends, here are some stationery products you can incorporate into your event to make it even merrier:

Invitation: A festive design and warm greeting will get everyone excited for a good time. A paper invitation is a great way to set the tone for your event.

Menu: A printed menu for a sit-down meal adds some elegance and lets your guests know what delicious food they can look forward to dining on.

Place Cards: If you are having more than a dozen people, it’s a good idea to use place cards. This will cut down on the chaos by giving your guests direction, and a pretty design brightens up the table.

Thank You Cards: A heartfelt note telling your guests how much you enjoyed their company goes a long way, and if a hostess gift was given or food item was brought, letting them know how appreciated it was is a must!

Bellia Print & Design has a talented graphic design team and a variety of paper options to choose from. We’d be happy to help you design your holiday party stationery!

Bellia Celebrates its 44th Anniversary!

deanna October 23, 2017 Uncategorized

Salvatore Bellia’s main goal was to build a business he could pass on to future generations, and three generations later, that dream is still going strong.   

In 1973 Salvatore and Nancy Bellia borrowed $10,000 to start a business, and bought a small printing company on North Broad Street in Woodbury, NJ, where they sold office supplies to businesses and residents of Gloucester County.  Now, Bellia Print & Design has a second location in Glassboro, and has branched off to Bellia Work + Space Professionals, an office furniture and interior workspace design company, also located in Woodbury.

Times may have changed throughout the years – Bellia Print & Design has gone from working with traditional printing methods to an all-digital process, and has become the area’s leading full-service design printing company.  However Bellia’s values and commitment to customers have remained the same. Treating everyone like family is how it has always been.  Bellia would like to thank the community, who they think of as family, for all of their continued support.

Bellia looks forward to serving the community for many more years to come, and remembers what Grandfather Salvatore always had to say: “Be passionate about all the important things in your life.”

Custom Tickets

Custom Tickets make your guests feel like they are holding the magic ticket? Our design team can help you create a beautifully designed one that goes along with the theme of your event.  Using tickets with a design that pops will not only set the tone for your event, but will draw attention to the event or raffle, which can help increase ticket sales.

Custom tickets serve many useful purposes, and the stubs can be saved as a memento of the special day or night. Here are some ways tickets can be included in your next function:

·       Admission: Use custom tickets for attendees to gain entrance to school events (talent shows, dances, plays), sporting events, concerts, magic shows, movie screenings, recitals, etc.  

·       Fundraisers: Tickets are great for raffles and drawings – with perforated numbering, attendees won’t have to spend time handwriting their information

·       Invitations: A personalized ticket is a creative way to invite guests to a birthday party, baby shower, wedding, or other special event

At Bellia Print + Design, we can help you create unique tickets for any occasion.   With various types of paper stock, sizes and full color designs, we’ll help you bring your vision life. We can even create perforation for a tear-away stub, and include unique numbering depending on the purpose of your ticket.

Three Reasons to Attend a Bridal Show

Samantha Weber September 22, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , Events

Not sure where to begin when it comes to planning your wedding? Attending a bridal show is a great place to start.  Here are three reasons why you should attend one:

  1. All of your area’s vendors will be under one roof. This is a great way to view (as well as listen to and taste, in some cases) everyone’s work, ask questions, figure out prices, check on availability and see who you click with.
  2. You’ll find inspiration everywhere. If you don’t have any ideas about what you want going in, you will certainly leave with some. For example, you can check out the latest trends in bridal gowns during the fashion show, visualize floral combinations and colors,  and decide between fondant or buttercream when it comes to cake options.
  3. Many shows have chances to win fabulous prizes, like roundtrip airfare or a free wedding gown.

Looking for a bridal show near you? Come join Weddings by Bellia at the Fall Wedding Expo taking place on Sunday, October 29, at the Scotland Run Golf Club in Williamstown, NJ at 1:00 pm. Visit us to view our work, including Save the Date cards, invitations, seating charts, and more.  We really hope to see you there!  For more information or to RSVP, please visit PlanitExpo.com or call 800-770-2743(BRIDE).

Designing Employee Handbooks

Samantha Weber August 25, 2017 Printing

Employee Handbooks
Employee Handbooks ares a great place to communicate your company’s vision and values while serving as a reference for not only new hires, but also long-time employees. A printed manual allows easy access to information, as well as the ability for employees to highlight passages and take notes.

The manual doesn’t have to be boring! Fill it with photos from company events, graphics, charts and funny comics to break up the verbiage. Integrate your logo and color scheme to build brand awareness. Our design team can help organize your information for an effective flow, and format each page to ensure your manual is error free and print ready.

Here are some ideas on what to include in Employee Handbooks:

  • Company mission statement
  • Company history
  • Policies and procedures
  • Description of departments/jobs within the organization
  • Frequently used acronyms
  • Company phone contacts (such as HR and Help Desk)
  • Blank spaces for notes throughout the document

Bellia Print & Design offers various options when it comes to paper stock, binding and finishing. While the process of creating a manual can seem overwhelming, our experienced design team will make the process seamless for you. We look forward to designing your Employee Handbook!
