Are We For You?
So, how do you know if we’re for you, and you’re for us? Your best bet is to peruse our website. After about 10 minutes or so, you ‘ll get a yes or no vibe. Or, just take our Cosmo quiz to find out! Read the question and use a pencil to keep track of how many yes’s and how many no’s you answer.
- Are you a small business owner? ○ YES ○ NO
We don’t really do personal pet projects, including special school projects or student projects. For one, people who don’t regularly do printing get sticker shock at just how much professional design and printing can cost and they end up leaving sad and dejected, and we feel terrible about causing so much pain in their lives. Two, we don’t have the resources to commit to small, very customized projects. But, you don’t have to be a business owner to have a large or complex design/printing project. If that’s you, then give us a shout and we’ll be happy to see how we can help.
- Do you need stuff printed regularly (business cards, brochures, postcards, etc)? ○ YES ○ NO
We have an awesome selection for printing things that most people print most of the time. But, if you have something very unusual, or highly customized with weird specifications that you only need 5 of, then we probably won’t be able to help you (unless you are a member of our Major Accounts Program).
- Do you do a lot of marketing for your business? ○ YES ○ NO
We’re not a marketing agency, but we have a lot expertise in print marketing, out-of-the-ordinary ideas, and no-nonsense strategies that you can do quickly and effectively. We specialize (we kick butt) in helping you implement your ideas, no matter how crazy they sound. In fact, we encourage weird and unusual marketing.
- Are you planning on doing a lot of marketing for your business? ○ YES ○ NO
We sincerely want to see your business succeed and prosper (even if that means sending you somewhere else for your design and/or printing). We like working with thriving businesses. We firmly believe that if you do not do marketing for your business, then you’re not going to stay in business for long. If you are a small business owner who does not believe in or refuses to do marketing, then we’re operating on different wavelengths.
- Do you have a kick-butt, dynamic website? ○ YES ○ NO
We can help you maximize your offline and online marketing efforts. We also want to buy ad space on your website.
- Are you currently working with a professional graphic designer? ○ YES ○ NO
If so, that’s great, that means you understand the value quality design and printing. If not, then look no further. We’ve got all the graphic design services you’ll ever need.
- “I know nothing about graphics” is a true statement for you. ○ YES ○ NO
If yes, you need highly talented designers to envision your formless ideas and chicken scratch sketches and give them form and existence beyond your wildest imagination. That’s us.
- Are you super busy trying to run your business (or businesses)? ○ YES ○ NO
You can trust us to handle all of your design, print, and marketing needs with minimal intervention on your part. We just need to get to know you, and we’ll take it from there.
- Are you an attorney? ○ YES ○ NO
We specialize in helping attorneys with marketing ideas, and helping them implement their ideas. If you’re an attorney, we’ve got some awesome resources for you that will seriously change your practice and change your life for the better.
- Do you value and invest in mutually beneficial business relationships? ○ YES ○ NO
We love you and respect you and will bend over backwards to please you. But we don’t subscribe to “the customer is always right” mantra. We consider our relationship with you a partnership. If you treat us poorly, if you don’t respect our time or the talents that we’ve worked hard to cultivate; if you’re rude, unreasonable, demanding; if you lie to us, if you don’t honor your promises or commitments to us, then you’re not the customer for us. Thankfully, we’ve found that these kind of people are only a small percentage of the population.
- Do you like sending your friends spontaneous gifts like fresh baked cookies or home-made banana bread? ○ YES ○ NO
Again, we want to see you prosper. That means we take an interest in your business, in the quality of your life, and in the things that you value. Because of this, most of our clients become our friends. So, we’re just dropping gratuitous hints here.
Count the total number of yes’s and use the key below:
9 or more yes’s
We’re a match made in heaven. Call us now, don’t delay.
You need us. You just don’t realize it. Call or email to discuss your needs. Let’s give us a chance, and re-assess later.
Less than 4 yes’s
We’ve heard good things about FedEx Office and Staples. Tell them we said hi. (Unless you need professional graphic design, then stick with us.)
