Crossmark Creative Group
From concept to product, the print design process is an exhilarating mix of creativity and practicality. At Crossmark Printing we combine a designer’s imagination with a thorough knowledge of the print process. We work hard to create pieces that get your message across.
To ensure accurate specifications and premium quality results, Crossmark Printing utilizes the latest technology for digital pre-press services. We employ the Adobe product line, as well as support all major PC and Mac programs. To achieve accurate color, we calibrate with a color management system.
To complement the Creative Services, we have a complete digital workflow with thermal computer-to-plate technology. This saves you time and money in the end.
Our staff is experienced in managing all phases, starting with preflighting your files to ensure the accuracy and integrity of your file. We troubleshoot for potential problems at the beginning; our staff can edit or repair files, color correct, and/or reformat or convert them if required to use with other programs. By preflighting files before they move along to proof or print helps eliminate costly errors that show up well into the project.

Brand building ideas to think about:
Simply stated, your brand is your promise to your customer. It isn’t your logo, your Pantone colors, your
letterhead or your building. It’s the consistent experience people have with your company. High quality,
constant messaging is imperative in building and maintaining your company’s brand.
Strategy… Developing a strategy requires self reflection; a strong strategic plan and the courage to claim your company’s personality. The strongest brands are not all things to all people. They are very clear in their single minded, focused voice and character.
Launch… The first customers to believe in and advocate for your brand are internal. All employees should know exactly what the company’s personality is, and how that is communicated to your customers. They are your advocates.
Build… Look at your company’s brand through your customer’s eyes. Are all touch points consistent? Is the quality of your messaging consistent? From the direct mail piece they receive to the interaction with your staff — all should communicate the same message.
Maintain… When you’ve established and built your brand, consistency is key. Brand maintenance means regularly reviewing your marketing communications to ensure your brand is being consistently represented at every touchpoint. Everything from consistency in logo colors to spatial placement of your logo. Tactical implementation of identity standards can make or break the strength of your brand, in all communication.
