Carbonless Invoices are quick and simple way to write out invoices, forms, and delivery slips.  We offer them as a book (also called Booked Carbonless Forms or Carbonless Receipt Books), loose, or simply glued along one edge.

Booked Forms come with a wrap around cover, meaning that the cover (front and back) also includes a back flap.  This flap can be used to insert between the pages so you don’t write on more than one set of pages.

KCBGraphics.com has everything you need for quality printing in the GTA, Toronto, and across Ontario.  For pricing and details please take a look at our options for carbonless booklets and forms.  For any questions you may have, please call us at 1-800-350-7152.

 

Carbonless Invoices and Forms

 

Carbonless Invoices

These are forms that are designed to make instant duplicates when you’re out in the field, at a job site, or in the customers home.  You write once on the top form, and the info transfers through to the next one or two pages.  One copy is for you, and the customer gets another.  Easy.

Choose from our list of premade templates, including HVAC, delivery slips, electrical forms, landscaping, and more.  If you need changes to the form, we can do that too.  Alternatively, if you have your own form, that works as well.  These templates all have space to insert in your company’s logo and address.  Send them along to us, and of course you’ll receive an emailed proof before we print anything.

Customized postcards come in all shapes and sizes.  They’re a great way to reach customers on your mailing list, but they can be used for so much more than just mail.  A post card is the perfect solution for a trade show or retail takeaway.  Their size is better suited to provide specific product information than a business card, but still small enough to remain unobtrusive and convenient.

Postcard Mailing

Most places that print customized postcards offer an extra feature for mailing.  For example, we can manage your postcard mailing using Canada Post’s “Addressed Admail”.  This helps reduce your postage costs and also saves you time, money, and a few potential headaches.

Make Your Customized Postcard a Hit

When creating your design, there are a few things to keep in mind.

  • Keep it crisp, keep it clean.  Don’t crowd your design with to much info, a hard to read block of text, or a confusing headline.
  • Your headline should be clear.  You don’t have much time to get your offer across to the viewer, so make sure your offer is easily understood.
  • Don’t forget the Call-To-Action.  Once you have the viewer’s attention, make sure you tell your audience what you want them to do next.  Call Now, See Our Website, Contact Us Here.
  • Simple and refined.  The postcard is a place for a quick, direct message.  In short, keep the goal simple and you’ll see better results.

Perforated window graphics are an immensely great way to promote or advertise your business.  Big or small, if you’ve got a window on your storefront and any road or foot traffic at all, you could benefit from impactful and colourful perforated window graphics.

KCBGraphics.com is a leading provider of marketing and products in Toronto, Ontario.  Take a look at our quality products and our Window Graphics. Prices are based on the size of your windows.  Please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-800-350-7152 with any questions.

Perforated Window Graphics

Perforate Window Graphics for Business

First off, you need to start with a good design.  Strong imagery and vibrant colours, combine with clear, easy-to-read text is critical.  Keep text brief, you want everything to be able to be read from a distance.  The size of the text will vary depending on the size of the window, the distance between the store and the sidewalk or the road.

What Does Perforated Mean?

This means that there are small holes spread across the entire graphic.  When properly installed, the media that perforated window graphics are printed on is essentially “invisible” from the inside.  You might have seen this media on store windows, and it is very common on vehicle windows.  It allows a full colour image to be printed on one side which is visible from the front, but from the back the media appears like a mesh screen, allowing you to see outside.

Perforated Window Graphics

Now, this means that you can’t have small text.  Anything small, say around 12pt, will have holes through it.  But, because it’s a window graphic you want people to be able to read from afar, you don’t want small text anyway.

So, how does this come together?

Well, we start with your graphics.  If you need design, our experts can help.  First things first, size is very important.  Measure your windows, the final piece will work best it it is 100% adhered to the glass, not running over onto the seal or the window frame.   If you’ve already got your artwork ready, send it along and we’ll start from there.

When the piece is printed, it comes on a backer so that the ink doesn’t spray through and cover the printer.  Next, after the ink has time to completely dry (at least 24 hours), the media is laminated with an optically clear laminate.  Without a laminate dirt and grit would fill every one of those little holes, as well as sun and rain fading at and destroying the image.

After laminating, the graphics are trimmed to size.  After this, the next step is the application on the windows.

Perforated Window Graphics Supplies

For the best results, use a good degreaser, sharp knives, and lint free towels. (The long handle blade is used to remove old graphics.)

So a small piece, it is completely possible for a novice to install.  There are many videos on youtube to help with this, here’s one from MACtac to get you started.  This video shows both a wet and dry application.  Please note that if you are applying a perforated material, you need to do the dry application.  If you install using the wet method, liquid will absolutely become trapped in the holes and interfere with both the adhesive’s bond and the visual impact.  Only use the wet method when the graphic is solid and you can pushed out all the liquid with your squeegee.

For large windows, or if you have to align two sections so they line up flawlessly, we do recommend having the perforated window graphics installed by professionals.  Depending on the quality of the vinyl, you probably need a warm day of 10°C or higher for the adhesive to bond properly with the window, installing it on the window when the temperature is below the recommended minimum could result in the vinyl graphics failing well before they should.  Check with your printer for installation requirements if you’ll be putting up the graphic yourself.

Apply Your Perforated Window Graphics

So, when we install any window graphics, we begin by cleaning the windows.  Old graphics may need to be removed from the surface.  This can take both extra time and money.  Removing a few letters or security stickers is different then peeling off larger, solid graphics.

Perforated Window Graphics

Some graphics need to be installed in 2 pieces, depending on the size of the windows.

Once the window is prepared, cleaned of ALL dust, dirt, and debris, it’s time to apply the graphics.  With the backer still on, tape the graphic in place so you can double check all edges to ensure that no part of the graphic runs off the glass onto the seal or frame.  This is important.  If even a small little corner runs off the side, it becomes a weak point and could end up quickly peeling away.  You can still trim small slivers away, using a straight edge and a sharp knife.

Once you’ve confirm the size, and the graphic is taped in place, you can start applying it to the glass.  Starting with the top edge, about 1 to 3 inches, peel off and fold down the backer.  Using your squeegee, starting in the centre, rub the graphic down, fixing the adhesive to the glass.  With the top edge secured tot he glass, you can triple check your edges, making sure you are level and straight to the window.

Now, you can begin peeling the backer off the graphic and carefully adhering the perforated window graphics to the glass.  It can be tricky ensuring that you do not have air bubbles and ripples, but with a high quality vinyl and a strong laminate you can usually peel back an inch or two if you need to retry.  This is the part that practice and experience really help.  Keep your squeegee at about a 45 degree angle.  Go slow, start from the horizontal centre, and push out to the sides as you make your way down the graphic.

Perforated Window GraphicsThere.  That’s the first one done.  Maybe a hiccup or two?  Don’t worry, it gets easier as you go.  Or did it go on smooth?  Well done.  If you have more, get to it.  You can go around now and clean up any edges.  If something went wrong and some of the graphic has made its way up on the window frame, you can carefully trim away the excess with a sharp knife, just be careful not to scratch the glass beneath.  Do not leave an edge loose, make sure ALL of the graphic is fixed onto the glass.

Once complete, the optically clear laminate will protect the colour and graphics from the elements, and the adhesive will keep it bonded to the glass.  Allow 24-48 hours for it to completely set to the glass.  From inside you’ll be able to see out, and from the street your clients will see a professional and impactful design representing your business.
