Seeing it through

Good design is just the first step in conveying your message. Negotiating with printers. Uploading your website to the host server. Choosing the right paper. Preparing your brochure for mass mailing and U.S. Postal Service compliance. Manufacturing your billboard for installation. These are just a few of many challenges that might arise before your project is complete.

Element L Design has you covered from concept to delivery. With over fifteen years of experience, Element L will see your project through the complete process, from an initial idea to preparing your piece for production, to shipping your finished product.

Element L Design is an authorized dealer with several vendors to get you the best price on political campaign materials, labels, promotional products and merchandise. Element L also works as a print broker. We've built solid relationships with commercial and union print shops to deliver great quality, reliable turnaround time, and excellent prices. We've already done the legwork: we can assess your needs and determine the best production source for you, saving you time and money.

Experience = Money in your pocket. With Element L on your side, you can save hundreds, and sometimes thousands in printing and production costs, and avoid the common pitfalls of media production.
