Envelope Envy "Four-Color envelopes, they're all the rage this season"

What does this picture mean to you?

Let's try again. How about this?

This is the Xante' Digital Press (you have to say that in a really deep announcer voice, it just works better that way.) What the Xante' means to you is COST SAVINGS! In the past buying a short run four-color envelope was a little pricey. That's not the case now. You can buy plain ol' envelopes and we'll run them through the Xante' and bam...four-color envelopes! Oh...and did I mention turn time? When you print and convert an envelope you are looking at 7 to 10 working days, BUT with the Xante', you could reasonably have your envelopes back in 2 to 3 days. Yes, you heard me right, 2 to 3 days!
Here's a perfect example (wow, I just happened to have pictures)...
This is an envelope we printed for Oklahoma Baptist University. (Go Bisons!)
Originally we printed them litho and they were converted into envelopes. In the sample shown here, we took the OBU art work, and ran it through the Xante' on a standard envelope.
Looks great, huh? The Xante' is perfect for short run print jobs! Next time you
think, "we can't afford to print that envelope in color"...think again my
friend, think again.

So you’ve seen the EASY button, right? Well… we’ve got the EASIER button. (Just remember you saw it here first!)

This little do-dad is so cool.

It’s a light up USB smart button. What does that mean? Well, I’ll tell ya. Let’s say you’re launching a new website, introducing a new product/service, or maybe have a link to a web application that you want your customers to see. You call HERITAGE at 800.654.1713 and order some smart buttons with your logo on them and then program the buttons to link to the URL you want your customers to access. You send the buttons out to your customers... it's that easy!
Then (here comes the fun part).....

They plug this….

Into this...

Then they click this...
Once they click the button it takes them to the site that has been programmed!
TOLD YOU it was cool!

Our ASI Team (ASI stands for… "Our awesome promotional products team that specializes in finding spectacular products for you and your company” …yeah, we couldn’t fit all that on a business card, so we just call them ASI) does an amazing job finding cool products for our customers. They have over 800,000 items to choose from…and I just showed you one item, so we’ve got at least 799,999 more blog posts to come…..stay tuned!

Flipped Out

This week we’re featuring a business card we did for our customer, Jameson Management (click here for the scoop on this way-cool company!) Jameson asked us to find a paper to compliment the design of this one of a kind business card for their customer, Jackson DDS.

Together we chose “Skin” a paper from Curious Collection that feels like baby skin! Skin printed remarkably like a gloss sheet only without the hard surface – the metallic gold and the grays now have a visual smoothness.

I “flipped out” when I saw this business card! (Okay yes…that’s a play on words, stay with me…) From the front and back it looks like a normal business card, right? Oh NO my friend, this isn’t your run-of-the-mill business card. The perforated edge on the front of the card invites you to pop that card open and see what’s inside! When opened it says “Advanced Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry – Where your inner smile becomes reality.”

Business cards are a quick first impression—they should adhere to your branding standards, clearly define your contact information, and grab the customers’ attention in a few brief seconds...I think this card meets the mark!

The Heritage of Heritage

Welcome to our home.

In 1974 Dave DeLana purchased a 900 square foot house on Choctaw Street in El Reno, Oklahoma and opened Heritage Print Shoppe. He started with a small duplicator press and two letter presses.


a lot has changed in those 35 years; we outgrew that little house and our name!

Heritage Solutions now resides in a 70,000 square foot building off Holloway Drive in El Reno, and we’ve got too many pieces of printing equipment to list! (Yes, we were known as Heritage Press for YEARS...we'll cover that in another blog post. Stay tuned.)

We are still known for our quality printing capabilities, but we’ve added many other solutions, including; fulfillment, kitting, binding, web hosting, web development, promotional products, digital printing and variable data solutions. I know what you're thinking..."WOW!"

Heritage Solutions isn’t “just a manufacturer.” We’re not “just a printer” either. Heritage Solutions is a service provider. We find solutions for our customers each and every day.

We hope you'll check out our blog often! We'll show you projects we've created, introduce you to our staff, and occasionally we'll even give some stuff away!
