Looking for the highest quality printing then look to Bellia. At Bellia, we strive to provide our customers with exceptional products and services. While our previous Digital Printing Press helped us to do just that, we decided to invest in the latest and greatest technology-which just became available this Spring by upgrading to the Canon imagePRESS C8000VP Series Color Digital Press.

It has the highest quality printing (color) rating of any printer in the industry, is most reliable printing press available, and we are the first in the area to have it!

This new press can print up to 100, 2400×2400 dpi, letter-size images per minute on a number of different media weights. It prints in black and white and color, and thanks to the amazing resolution, it will help to bring your images to life. It also offers real-time, automatic color control and adjustments, more accurate calibration, and a stream-lined workflow thanks to the extremely powerful front-end computer. We can manage the massive variable data files even faster by processing over 100,000 pages of data per minute! That is twice as fast as our existing equipment which will allow us to provide you, our customers, with the best possible products in a shorter amount of time. It also means we can take on larger projects and have them completed much faster than before. Thanks to this new machine, and over 40 years of printing and design experience, we will be able to offer an even better experience and higher quality products you can’t get anywhere else.

Top 5 Printed Items Your Business Needs

As a business, it is important to have a solid and cohesive printed items to showcase your company, products, and services. Some companies have shied away from printed collateral thanks to the rise of digital media and social networking. While digital information is easily found and accessible, actual printouts are still extremely crucial for businesses since they allow for you to brand yourself to the customer even after your meeting ends.

Here are the top 5 printed items your business needs-

  1. Business cards: These are the recipients’ introduction to you and your business. It is important for them to give pertinent information, but to also make a positive first impression. You need a professional logo and look – this is not a place to cut corners. A professional business card is a necessity when promoting yourself and your business.
  2. Letterhead and envelopes: Professional letterhead is important because it can be used for invoices, thank you notes, cover letters, etc., and exudes professionalism and stability. It should have the company logo, as well as the company name, address, phone number, and website.
  3. Brochures and flyers: Not everyone relies on the web. Some people don’t have internet access and want more than just your business card in order to get to know you and your company. A professional brochure or one page flyer could be the difference between a “maybe” and a “definitely”. You need to convey that you’re an expert in your industry and your potential client needs you in a concise and clear manner. Professional graphics and design are important here as well – a basic brochure can be a turn off, while nice graphics and professionally written bullet points can win you business.
  4. Company/product/service fact sheets: These should contain the company logo and basic company information. A company fact sheet should also have the following- the date the company was founded, the location of the headquarters and any affiliate offices, names and brief backgrounds of founders and upper-level management. Product and service fact sheets are a nice, simple way for potential clients, investors, and business partners to see what you offer.
  5. Press Kit: A professional press kit is important, not just for presenting your company to the media, but also to investors, potential clients, and professional partners. The company logo should be featured prominently and it should include a recent news release, company fact sheet, product or services fact sheet, any recent articles written about the company, a business card, and a personalized letter pitching your company, product and/or service. This is not a place to cut corners. You need a professional logo and look in order to portray yourself, and your company, in a professional manner. The use of language, images, and graphics are important and the proper use of each can have an immensely positive impact on your business.
