Short-run Book Printing

Short-run Book PrintingOnce upon a time you wrote a book. And it was a great book – a fictional masterpiece crammed with adventure, dripping with pointed political commentary and just a sprinkle of romance. The characters were charming and witty, sarcastic and gorgeous, vengeful and brilliant.

But no one knows about your book because you couldn't afford to publish it. Your mom thought it was great, though.

Enter short-run book printing. With a short-run printer, you can publish enough copies of your book to give to friends and family. Companies can order copies of a project to preview before a big order or distribute for a presentation.

Printers who offer short-run services don't require you to order hundreds of copies of your book, like the commercial offset printers do.


Unique Uses for Wide-Format Printing

Trade Show DisplayWhen it comes to standing out from the crowd and drawing customers in, size matters.

Whether you're competing for booth visitors in a crowded trade show or hoping to get noticed on the road, think big. No, think huge. Scratch that—think colossal.

Think wide-format printing.

The great thing about wide-format printing is it can be used for almost anything you can dream up. You can create logoed banners, signs, displays, and other projects that take advantage of large spaces to send your message.


A Letter from Tom Metzger

Joe & Tom MetzgerIt is with a heavy heart that I write to tell you of my brother Joe’s passing. Joe was an inspiration to just about anyone who met him. He was family to those he worked with, as well as those who worked for him. Joe was an innovator, proven leader and accomplished entrepreneur. He also was the greatest brother in the world.

Together, Joe and I have had the privilege of building the Metzger’s family business side by side for over 30 years. Our conviction and business ethics earned us a Torch Award and a place on the industry’s list of Top 400 printers. During the last 20 years, Metzgers experienced unprecedented growth under Joe’s stewardship. Joe has been key to our success, and I am forever grateful that he taught me everything he knew.

Learning of Joe’s illness two and a half years ago gave us the ability to prepare for the future. Besides myself, an executive team of four, with over 75 years of industry experience was then put in place. This team will continue to guide Metzgers moving forward. Not only will Metzgers remain a strong family-owned business, it will also continue to thrive and grow with the recent arrival of the third generation of Metzgers. Joining us is Joe's son, John Metzger, who comes to us with a degree in Business and Marketing from the University of Toledo. Prior to that, my own son, Tony Metzger, brought to the company a degree in Operations Management from the University of Dayton.

There’s nothing quite like the strength you gain from family. You see, this isn’t the first time Metzgers has experienced a loss in our family and business. We’ve been down this road before when our father, Norbert Metzger, who started our company, passed away a few years ago. He had a mission and a vision that we all built upon together. With Joe’s passing, our family is now more determined than ever to see that vision through and take Metzgers even further up that Top 400 printers list.

Joe would say, “live every day to its fullest”. Be assured that we intend to do that in our own lives and with our company, as we move forward firing on all cylinders.

All of us at Metzgers would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation for your kindness and unwavering loyalty. Thanks for your continued confidence in our family and the rest of the Metzgers team.

Choosing a Fold for Your Project

Half Fold

Designing a brochure or pamphlet? You may have thought about content, color, and even paper type, but there's another factor you should consider. The type of fold you select for your project can greatly affect readability, ease of use and overall impact on your potential consumer. There are numerous options to choose from, but here are a few of the most popular ones.

Half Fold: The most simple type of fold, it is commonly used for brochures and greeting cards. It can be used with nearly all types of paper, though thicker stocks require scoring to produce a smooth fold. It works well with most sizes, although it's commonly used with 8.5″ x 11″, 8.5″ x 14″, 11″ x 17″ or 11″ x 25.5″ paper

Make Your Direct Mail Stand Out

Unique MailerAre you sending a brochure or other mailer to prospective customers? Let's face it: That piece of mail will end up in a mailbox or desk with a bunch of other letters, bills, and flyers all begging to be opened. Many of them will be tossed directly into the trash, unread.

How do you make sure yours doesn't?
You've got precious few seconds between the mailbox and the trash can to grab your recipient's attention. If your mailer looks like everything else in the pile, it won't get read. Eye-catching, creative designs, however, are more likely to be read. Here are some things to consider when designing your brochure or mailer.
