A Message from PostNet Oceanside

The Way I See It

One day, a young lady was driving down the highway with her father. They came upon a storm and she asked her father, "What should I do?" He calmly said "just keep driving." Cars began to pull over to the side and the storm seemed to be getting worse. The young lady looked worriedly at her father again and he repeated, "Just keep driving."

She never stopped driving, and soon she could see clearly and after a couple miles she was out of the storm and the sun was shining. Her dad then said, "Now you can pull over and get out." The girl replied, "But why now?" He said, "I want you to look back and think about all the people that gave up and are still in the storm… but your storm is over because you never gave up."

Here the way I see it: Just because others give up, doesn't mean you have to. If you just keep going and focus on your destination, you can weather any storm. When you trust us with your important printing projects, we'll ensure you experience nothing but sunshine and blue skies ahead

Idea of the Week
Marketing with QR Codes

Surely you've noticed a QR code in a magazine, flyer, or at a trade show? QR codes are typically a square box that resembles a barcode that is designed to be scanned by a mobile device in order to reveal a web link or marketing message.

Generating a QR Code for your business is a very easy process. There are several free websites that will help you generate a free QR code, such as www.quikqr.com . Here are a few helpful tips to ensure a successful QR campaign:

  • Determine a goal for your QR campaign. Why do you want people to scan your code? To sign up for something? Download a free sample?
  • Since QR codes are downloaded via a cell phone or mobile device, ensure your QR code directs to a mobile website.
  • Start with compelling content. Just because you can create a QR code in seconds doesn't mean your message is ready to be revealed.
  • Guide your users. The majority of mobile users are not familiar with QR codes or how to scan them. Offer a brief explanation of what the code is and how to access it.
  • Remember that URL length is important. The longer the URL, the more complex the QR code image. A shorter link can mean a less detailed code, which is also a better option when scanned quickly or with a poor quality camera phone.
  • Consider adding a QR code to the "contact us" section of your website so users can easily download your contact information.
  • Use QR codes as a fun and easy way to direct the users to additional information, such as offering a link to an instructional video.
  • Think about where your QR code will appear, and consider the time it takes to scan the code. For example, codes are much more successful when printed on a business card or postcard than the side of a bus.
  • Offer a QR code on a brief one-page product slick, door hanger, or other small marketing piece that can offer additional information to those who are interested.
  • Use QR codes as a unique way to get additional information, such as on Home for Sale signs – you could include a code that links to a video or photo tour of the house.

If you're looking for other creative ways to market your products or services, stop by today – we'd love to show you more of our ideas!

Business Cards Click here to get started, place an or get a quote http://ca137.postnet.com/


We can design and print business cards that reflect your corporate identity. On the most basic level, we print basic black on white paper. For those interested in making a really terrific impression, we offer a variety of impressive services including full-color printing, embossing, and foil printing. 

We can also help you design and print a complete corporate identity package that includes business cards, letterhead, envelopes, business forms, and mailing labels. 


Brochures Click here to get started, place an or get a quote http://ca137.postnet.com/


Every product you sell needs a brochure. It's one of those Business 101 things. Through the years we've probably printed several million brochures, and while that doesn't automatically make us an expert, it sure doesn't hurt. We know what papers to suggest to create a quality look or a discount price special brochure. If you plan on mailing your brochure, we can recommend a paper that will stand up to the potential damage done during the mailing process. 

Our design team can also listen to your concepts and ideas, and help you create an attention-grabbing promotion piece. We can then print a beautiful one-, two-, or four-color brochure to our exacting quality standards. 

Postcards  Click here to get started, place an or get a quote http://ca137.postnet.com/

Postcards are one of advertising's best-kept secrets. Often overlooked, postcards are in fact a powerful and inexpensive way to reach your audience. Postcards are easy and so cost effective. We print all types of postcards in several different sizes and formats.
Logo Packaging Labels

Your company logo should appear everywhere, ranging from your promotional materials, products, and especially packaging of your products. When custom packaging isn't an option or is too expensive, logo labels are a perfect solution to create your own custom packaging. 
Unlike shipping labels that focus on to/from addresses, logo labels focus simply on your company logo, and perhaps your website. By customizing packaging and shipping boxes with your own custom logo labels, you can not only save money and reduce packaging costs, but also promote brand awareness for your product. 

Logo labels look great in die-cut shapes, and are available in a variety of colors, ranging from simple one color on a white label to a full color, embossed, or metallic logo. Order yours today!

Big Color Posters Click here to get started, place an or get a quote http://ca137.postnet.com/


When you have an important event to announce, or simply need to make a big, bold statement, why not use a big color poster? 

We print the standard size corkboard 11x17" big color posters. This size is the most popular big poster because it can be the dominant piece on most corkboard displays without totally overpowering other items on display. One-, two-, and four-color printing is available, along with a wide selection of colorful papers. 

Another option is to use our commercial big color jumbo ink-jet printer. It will print posters 24" and 36" wide in any length. Stop in and visit to discuss specific capabilities and see some samples.

Email File Format Recommendation

Why Friends Don’t Let Friends Email Word Documents

Next time you attach a Word document to an email, you may want to think twice. Word documents are often one of the most frustrating file formats people commonly send. Here are a few reasons why Word documents are an unreliable way to email information:

  • Not everyone has the same version of Word. If the recipient has an older version of Word than you do, they may not be able to open your document. Formatting issues are also common if files need to be converted to a newer version of Word.
  • Your content is easily editable. Depending on the purpose of the document it can compromise security.
  • Word documents don't always print the same way as they look on the computer.
  • Fonts are not transferred with files, so if the recipient doesn't have the same font installed, another font will be substituted.
  • Layouts can easily change due to poor formatting control over line breaks, page breaks, font substitutions, margins, etc.
  • The file size of Word documents is very large and inefficient compared to other file formats.
  • Word files are notorious for containing computer viruses.
  • Images may lose quality when imported into Word. Also, Word typically does not handle graphics in the .eps format very well and makes it difficult to view them within a document.

The best alternative to sending Word documents is to save document as a PDF to preserve the formatting and look of the fonts you selected. Acrobat Reader is free and can be used by anyone to view the PDF file. Other alternatives include converting the file to HTML, or saving as plain text if formatting isn't an issue, or if formatting will ultimately be addressed through the use of page layout software.

Tips & Tricks

Using Type as a Mask

Adobe Illustrator has a wonderful assortment of tools for adding fill colors and patterns to paths and objects. However, those fill options aren't as plentiful when it comes to adding fills to type. Workarounds for these limitations are available. One method allows you to use type as a mask to apply a gradient to your text. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Create a word or phrase of text.

  2. Use the rectangle tool to create a rectangle about the size of your text. Apply a gradient fill to this rectangle.

  3. Drag your type on top of the filled rectangle, making sure that the text is on top. (Object > Arrange > Bring to Front)

  4. Select both pieces, the type and the rectangle.

  5. Choose Object > Clipping Mask > Make.

  6. Click anywhere outside your type to see the effect.

You could use this technique to create unique headlines for a newsletter, or in your company’s logo.
