Double checking specsWritten by Florie Lyn Masarate
Business documents are usually being mailed to and from other offices, whether locally or even abroad. Meeting required deadlines is a hassle people preparing these documents have to endure. In their haste, mistakes are most likely to occur. It may be in content itself or in presentation. Whatever it may be, only one thing is certain. They have to be corrected before sending.
The scenario: FedEx guy already waiting impatiently while you try all you can to correct errors in document. With pressure as a booster, you pushed your limit. The outcome: successfully correcting errors in crucial parts of document. Another is making it worst that than it originally was. Either way, FedEx person would be too impatient to wait, leaving you with no other alternative for fast delivery. There goes your deadline. With it went your promotion.
Here are just some specifications of printed jobs that needed to be double-checked ahead of time.
Number of copies. The number of copies equals content of printed job. Making sure everything is in order is more valuable time compared to having to look later on when time is not anymore an option.
Delivery date and time. Putting into mind time and date of delivery to avoid rush and last minute preparations. Situations like this usually end up forgetting something while preparing another. Also saves you trouble of having to endure to deadly stares and swears of delivery person.
Working on communicationWritten by Florie Lyn Masarate
Printed materials as a means of communication has become something of a trend, or more like, a necessity. Everything that can be put in writing, has been put into writing. Every word that can be printed has been printed. Even feelings and emotions. This made way for creation and evolution of greeting cards.
The tradition of giving and receiving greeting cards dates way back in 15th century. Without advantage of modern inventions and technologies, they were hand-delivered to respective bearers. These practice reached its peak in 19th century, time it began its popularity. At this time, more and more people started making cards by hand, that eventually lead to companies having to mass produce these cards to keep up with demand.
In 1800ís these cards were decorated with laces and ribbons, most especially in England. By middle of same century, these cards began to be made in factories built for that purpose. And by end of century, they were being made using machines. Pop-up cards were introduced and other things that people could think of that can be made and put in cards.
Greeting cards continued its popularity up to modern age, with newer and more styles being created and developed. Mass production of these cards was needed to be able to cope up with demand as these cards were being sent not only given occasions. Creativity in greeting cards has also become a trend and a challenge for printing companies. Styles are developed to better enhance interest and boost their product.
