Here at MedForms, we strive to provide agencies in the home care industry with the best home care booklets possible. In addition to providing the most educational and informative content throughout the booklet, the cover and the branding of your agency is also very important.
Your unique branding by the use of a logo helps to differentiate you from other agencies and give your agency an identity. We aim to make the appearance of logos, images and covers as clear and aesthetically pleasing as possible.
The cover is the first thing the patient sees on their booklet. First impressions are very important, so we understand that you would like your booklet to best represent your agency!
We thought it would be helpful to provide a Q&A for graphics department-related questions that are often asked. The following questions are ones that agencies often ask when it comes to logos, covers, images and more! Our graphics department kindly answered these common questions.
Q. When it comes to logos, why are vector files (.ai or .eps) the preferred file type?
A. “Vector files are the gold standard for logos because they are scalable. Vector files can be resized up and down without losing any resolution or quality, so they will always print clearly. Vectors are also editable, so it’s possible to change a color or move components.”
Q. When it comes to cover photos, what types of files do clients need to send over and why?
A. “For photographs, jpeg/jpg files are preferred. We are looking for high-resolution images to ensure high-quality printing.”
Q. Can clients design their own covers?
Q. What do you recommend when it comes to clients designing their
A. “Something to consider beyond your own branding identity of course, is what information to include on your covers. For example, our templates include important phone numbers on the back cover to provide easy access for patients.”
Q. Do you have a preference when it comes to the file types of cover files?
A. “We would ideally receive a print-ready PDF file from you. Our dimensions are 8.5” x 11″, if you would like your cover to have a bleed, we use bleed dimensions 8.75” x 11.25”.”
Q. What do you feel that our clients need to know about the graphics department?
A. “We are here to help you! If you are unsure something will work, we are always here to double-check something for you or answer questions. We want your branding to shine and are always willing to work with you until you are proud of your booklet, cover to cover.”
