Does your printed marketing products brand you as a champion?
I meet a lot of nice people over the Internet. One of them is Fred Aronowitz, a horse and business owner who discovered my horse business blog and emailed me that he liked my logo and business card designs. Fred owns ColorPrintingPros.com, a full color printing business and he feels he can offer my equestrian logo clients and site visitors a better printing deal knowing that horse people like you desire their printed items as polished, good looking, and robust as your horses.
Fred mailed me samples of his 4 color printing and WOW I am impressed – what eye candy – the colors are clean, crisp, and bright and even the tiniest text is sharp and readable. I really like the substantial feel of the cards, because of their extra thickness and the glossy coatings make the colors POP. Color Printing Pros’s standard paper stocks are heavy 14 Pt card stock with a free upgrade to 16 PT, if you wish, on all cards (except their short run specials.)
Most printing companies charge extra for these heavy card stocks and extra for coatings. Free overall UV coating is included on all card stock and free aqueous coating is included on all book and cover weight stocks. Their standard book weight stock is 100Lb gloss so you don’t need to pay for an upgrade to have your flyers and stallion sheets look and feel great.
For letterheads and envelopes (yes they print these), they use quality 70# bright white opaque smooth finish paper which will reproduce your full color logo beautifully. You can also bleed the color to the edge of the paper – this is generally not possible with many stationary printers or with self printing from your computer and printer.
If you are looking to make your cards unique then consider their matte/dull coating, optional spot UV coating or even their metallic silver ink. If there is something you don’t see on their menu, call or email them for a custom quote. They are open to working with and willing to make suggests on what might work the best for you.
If you only need 100, 250 or 500 copies, click on their ‘Short Run Specials’ for some incredible savings. Short runs are not short on quality – you receive impressive printing, not just quickly make copies.
Fred admits that ColorPrintingPros.com is not the biggest printing shop on the Internet and that fact is a HUGE plus in my book, because I have had my fill (and then some) of the so called customer service of large companies. I prefer working with smaller businesses that don’t treat me as just a number. Fred says that he views his business as a living entity that he is continually working on to improve.
Fred assures me that no matter how small your job is, it is as important to them as it is to you. That they are experienced professionals that understand design and know printing and that they are willing to offer advise and suggestions just for the asking. They can also provide you with design and production services as well. Or if you are creating your own designs you can download some of their free user-friendly layout templates which are available in EPS, JPG, PDF, or AI file formats and for all their print products. http://www.colorprintingpros.com/template.php
I really like the fact that you can check your design files with their Free file technical review before ordering so you can be sure they are made right and will print great. They also have free online proofing and if you require hard proofs, they are available at a very fair price.
ColorPrintingPros.com also offers items that many of the larger printing companies do not like – bookmarks, door hangers, booklets, posters, CD covers, and others. The also offer more options to add a unique look to your sales and marketing items.

Please check out their folded business cards or what they call ‘Double Panel Business Cards’. These cards give you three times the ad space of one sided business cards so you can really list your business or service benefits. They’re more like a mini business brochure, but keeping the standard business card size for easy pocketing.

A little about Fred Aronowitz
I am a very passionate horse person and avid rider who spends most of my free time with my best friend, “Buddy”, my 16.3 gelding that I rescued from the track. I am the owner of ColorPrintingPros.com and I am exploring how I might grow my business in a more horse and equestrian oriented direction. I believe I can provide expert advice on the printing of sales and marketing literature. I believe we offer a better product with more options to separate our customers from everybody else. About ColorPrintingPros.com
My horse, Buddy, is very athletic and loves to work. He was trained for the track but had a fetlock injury and was put out in a pasture with lots of other horses. He was not alpha. I found him when he was 4 and in very bad shape. He was a couple of hundred pounds under weight and his feet were a mess and he had sores all over. The injuries have completely healed and the fetlock shows as a bit of swelling and is now visible as a blemish only. I bought him because he had a kind eye and seemed very willing. The previous owner had no interest in him and he was virtually left to fend for himself. Buddy is now eleven and a best friend as well as part of my family.
