Did you know?

Eating a lot of broccoli helps you avoid the flu. This vegetable along with apples, blueberries, spinach, lettuce and onions, contains a powerful antioxidant called "quercetin" and that antioxidant has been shown to reduce the risk of flu. Also, a high consumption of quercetin has been linked to catching fewer colds as well.

Choosing the Right Colors for your Projects  


Did you know that color can be up to 85% of the reason people will buy a product?

Different colors create different affects to our minds.  When designing a sign, award, nameplate, etc. selecting the right color is essential. The colors of your signage are important to bring out your message and personality. While most people do not think about a room or sign color, it actually affects us every day of our lives. So when it comes to making a decision with choosing a color for a sign, it is important to choose wisely.


For example, if you had a customer that owned a spa and wanted to upgrade the signage in their office, you would probably want colors that are known for relaxation and calming such as the blue or green family (aside from their company branding). The color blue is known to bring down blood pressure and slow respiration and heart rate. Blue is considered calming, relaxing and peaceful. There are many different color schemes to choose from to create the right mood for the right setting.


Here is a nice color guide to help you choose the right colors: http://visual.ly/color-guide-designers
