What is an Imprint

An imprint is an informative design printed on the last page, a.k.a. backer. Visible all year long, it hangs below the datepad. The standard imprint is 10″ wide by 2″ high. Well-designed imprints include your contact information, specialised logos, and descriptive photos. If your imprint is complete, send it to us, and we will print it that way.

What Goes into an Imprint?

Imprints advertise your organization, highlighting contact information, clergy names, service times, and other church information. The best imprints are simple, with clear and concise text and a logo or photo to best convey your message. To stand out among your competitors, create the imprint in various colors, such as vibrant green, luscious yellow, robin red, or process.

Here are some sample imprints to get your creative juices flowing – and remember, our talented team will help your imprint stand out.
