• Creative Ideas

    Our strength is matching the customer's needs with the appropriate product - both in purpose and budget.  We will help you to develop your project from start to finish and to get the most "bang for your buck" along the way!

  • Process

    Your project is completed in a variety of ways depending on various factors, but most importantly speed, budget, & quality.  To those ends, we use many different production methods from off-set press printing to digital press printing to digital toner and wide-format inkjet printing.  Bindery options are also extensive including saddle-stitching, lamination, spiral binding, scoring, folding, cutting, punching/drilling and much more.

  • Products

    Our product line is extensive, but our specialty is 4 color printing (what most think of as "full color").  A full line of corporate identity printing (e.g., business cards, letterhead, etc.) is available along with cards, flyers, posters, rack cards, books/booklets, custom packaging, promotional products, and beyond.  If it prints, we can do it!

  • Computer Sales

    We offer a full line of computer technology - from home to business including laptops, tablets, desktops and all peripherals.  Our pricing structure is such that we have NO incentive to oversell you.  Instead, our focus is on what you need and the budget you have to work with.  Our technology sales also includes installation options, whether it be a simple printer install or a multiple camera security system.  Transfer of files from you old machine is also available.

  • Computer Service

    We repair computing devices of many types and operating systems (e.g., Windows, MacOS, iOS, Android, etc.).  We also have a unique structure:  most typical repairs are flat-rate (not by the hour) for labor.  Our flat-rate price for malfunctioning operating system (because of virus, malware, etc.) is $80!

    Repair service in your home or business is also available at rates that blow the competition away.  Our technicians are qualified for workstation repair and trouble-shooting, basic network repair, and basic server issues.

  • Web Design

    Work with our on-site Graphic Designer to develope a concept for your website, then work with our web development technician to complete and deploy you site!  Abilities include CMS solutions, e-commerce, and basic HTML, with costs that can fit any budget!

  • Software Matters

    There are many software layout programs available to the general public. Beware... they are not all created equal. The Design House subscribes to Adobe Creative Cloud software and services to create your copy, print, and design products. This includes InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop, and Adobe Acrobat which is the industries top choices for producing professional products. It is important that the software used to create your products can provide vector, cmyk, 300 dpi files. Not utilizing the proper software right from the start can equate to costly fixes for you down the road.

  • Experience

    Our graphic design team has over 30 years experience working with Adobe products and understand how to layout and produce your product correctly from concept to completion which includes prepping the files for print production. While setting up a business card or brochure may look simple on the surface, there are many details to consider to assure your product looks professional and prints correctly. These include but are not limited to using the correct margins, gutters, bleeds, transparencies, and cmyk color swatches. Let our experience work for you.

  • Be Unique

    The Design House does not use stock logos or templates when designing your product. Every logo, every product we create is custom created from scratch just for YOU. You will never have to worry about someone else having the same design. We can provide the completed files in any format you need or we can professionally produce the finished products. Call, email us, or stop in for a free consultation. Let us help you find the product that fits your needs and your budget. Being unique can be easy and affordable.

  • First Impression Matters

    You only get one chance to make a first impression! For business owners, this starts with branding your business and choosing the right products to promote your business. The first and best choice you can make is to use a professionally trained, graphic designer which has the know how to do it right the first time. The Design House’s graphic design team will implement the best approaches to communicate your products and services to your customers. They will take your preferences into mind and then come up with creative solutions and products that fit your needs. Most importantly, they will develop your products in the proper software producing vector and cmyk files of your logo and print products for universal application and production. With a trained graphic designer, you can assure your customized look will be consistent and stand out from your competitors.

  • Typography

    The Design House graphic design team understands that there is more to design and layout than a pretty picture. We will work with you on text content and arrangement to assure that your content is clear and has impact. We have thousands of fonts to choose from and will be happy to assist you in choosing the font that best reflects your product and addresses the demographic needs of your target audience.

  • On Target

    The Design House has an extensive library of clip art and photography to provide additional impact. To be competitive, it is important that your products be visually and aesthetically appealing to your audience. If we don’t have what you need in stock, we can create a custom solution or provide photography options. Our design team will be happy to assist you in choosing the imagery that best suits your audience and puts you on target to succeed.

  • Is It Important?

    Whether you are a start up business or an established business, marketing matters. It is not enough to just open the doors day after day, it is important to have a short term and long term game plan or strategy for finding and communicating with your target audience. The Design House has experience with metro and rural markets, non-profit organizations, and all sizes and structures to include on-line, small, and corporate businesses. To be successful, don’t wait until the 11th hour for a Hail Mary - marketing starts before you open your doors and continues until you close them.

  • The W’s

    Marketing identifies the who, what, when, where, and why of a business and then develops the best means to satisfy these key areas through the promotion and selling of products or services. Finding solutions includes market research and advertising. The Design House can work with you to identify the strengths and weaknesses in your area and the best means to reach your audience. Whether you need a simple boost or an overall analysis of current operations, we are here to assist with radio, television, print, and social media options.

  • Map for Success

    The Design House has the marketing experience you need. Our experience goes from local marketing at a base level to more extensive marketing plans. Services include but are not limited to advertising, photography, and mass mailings. Budgets have ranged from $50 to $50,000. We understand the need and will encourage you to change or mix up your approach for many reasons - trends, economy shifts, change in demographics, etc. If you are not changing and growing, you might find yourself going out of business if your marketing is not relevant. Let us help you map out a plan for success.
