View Full Version : What I do @ Kinko's
Did these for a friend, but I put them on my site so I can easier explain to friends what I do. I usually knock a project like this off in 20 minutes. My highest is 18 business cards in one shift.
These are just the jpegs, we keep the native 600 dpi Photoshop file(s).

Those business cards look really thick.

My only real crit is that the letterhead is huge. What about resizing it to a small part of the upper left corner?
SjetvsKerrigan: Yah they do /images/graemlins/wink.gif
JBoskma: I like the idea of it being big, I could throw it on with about a 5-10% opacity level, make it faint. Or have it like that and everything gets written below the line.

Yeah I actually like the really wide font. It makes it look different than what you usually see, and like it demands to be noticed. Though the font looks kinda like generic sci-fi

cool. I like your idea of lowering the opacity on the letterhead. Maybe even a gradiant fade across the top. Nice design work though.

Cool stuff Adam, I like the clean professional designs.
Does every kinko's have an employee capable of doing business cards? What is the pricing like? If I want to make my own, what tips can you give me?
Yah, every Kinko's should have a design specialist on hand at some point during the day. The pricing is $90/hr at a $15 minimum - I still make my hourly wage though and get nothing of that hourly charge /images/graemlins/frown.gif. If you want to make your own things to know: standard businesscard size is 2"x3.5". If you make a document that is 7"x10" and make it 2 cards across by 5 cards down you'll get ten cards to a sheet (you can make it so theres 12 on a page but the way I mentioned is the way I was taught to do them for Kinko's.
So yah, hope that helps.

Heh, that's a lot like the boring work I do at my job. On a busy day I might do 10-15 designs. But lately I haven't had any artwork to do so I've had to work on building sample design catalogs. :P Very tedious and boring.
Nice design though. I like the font choices and the layout.

nice, but i don't like the font turning black over the planet, hard to read like that
