Hi, I’m Richard.
Tap my expertise from
→ ideation & product selection
→ through design & artwork creation
→ to final delivery: correct & on-time.
In a different era, I’d be wearing white gloves.
My office is in Old Town and I live in the Foothills.
Let’s make it happen!
Where are you in the process?
(what’s the bottom line?)
Gathering Ideas & Info
If you want to browse for inspiration, dive down the rabbit hole…
- Everything Under the Sun
- Apparel Blanks (corporate) (typically decorated locally)
- Apparel: Brand Name & Fashion
- Global Suppliers
When you find something you like, write down the Item Number and email it to me. (Don’t trust the cart on these websites of my suppliers. They tend to glitch and lose things. 🙄)
let’s just talk:
Give me a call and you’ll get straight answers.
(We can also just spitball ideas.)
Here’s what we’ll talk about:
You know this already, but I’m going to say it anyway:
Perception of the item = Perception of your business.
If you’re going to spend most of the money anyway, I’ll help you spend just 10-20% more to ramp up & amplify the perceived quality.
Ideally, your item will be in sight or even in their hands when they’re making “the decision”.
- Mileage Logs for a Bookkeeper
- Keychains for a Property Manager
- Coasters & Pint Glasses for a Brewery
- Ice Scrapers for a Car Dealer
- USB drives for an IT Company
What’s in their hand when they’re thinking about your business?
Working with Ramplify is so easy. They’ve helped us with everything from pens, notepads and mugs, to shirts and jackets for the team.
Logo / Message Compatibility
I’ll help you understand limitations and find opportunities.
Some logos must be full color – black & white simply will not do. You can only fit so much text on the barrel of a pen. Some things embroider well, others are best screen-printed.
Four major factors affect price:
- Item Quality
- Order Quantity
- Imprint Method (screen printing vs. embroidery vs. engraving, etc.)
- Design & Production Complexity
Together we will dial-in each factor to create an item that is appropriate, relevant, reflects quality, and won’t break the bank.
What will it cost?
Quantity x Unit Cost
That will get you “close enough”. My favorable pricing typically offsets sales tax & some of the shipping.
When we find something you like, I can give you a solid estimate of the total final cost. I’m usually accurate within 5%.
Richard’s not a salesman, he’s an adviser who has gone above and beyond on numerous occasions. I’d give him more than 5 stars if I could.
I ask challenging questions. I’m not selling you anything; I’m advising you. You might think you need it laminated, but have you considered waterproof paper? Let’s get creative.
I also catch things that aren’t possible or smart – like paying for a 4-color imprint when your design only uses one color. I won’t talk you into something; I’ll talk you out of a bad idea.
I have the latest Graphic Design Software. There’s no file type I can’t open.
I can manipulate your artwork to make it work. Convert to vector. Cut down colors. Simplify or modify. Sometimes you need it to just work, just for this. I fix things & make ’em happen!
I have an affinity for locally-produced, eco-friendly custom promotional products, but maybe that’s just me. If “Manufactured in the USA” is important to you, I have great suppliers. If the best-fit is to print it in China and ship it by slow-boat, we’ll do that.
I’m a matchmaker. I source the job where it’s best for the job.
I was an Industrial Engineer and worked in Operations Research as a Project Manager. I also have a minor in Psychology. That means I have a wicked attention to detail and understand what matters, what makes the difference.
I make YOU look gooood.
Impress your boss.
Impress your clients.
I have a soft spot for non-profits, these in particular:
Richard is very helpful especially if you have little knowledge about creative. He’s there for you every step of the way.
Richard has been fabulous to work with. He has helped me with business cards, RAC cards, and a banner. I think I get a great value and great advice!
On several occasions Richard has sent me elsewhere if he could not provide the most cost-effective option. I highly recommend developing a relationship with Richard before starting any new printing or marketing projects
Richard’s knowledge, skill, and experience has made my postcard marketing an ongoing success.
