Designing Excellence: The Key Benefits of an In-House Design Team

For schools like Harrison Elementary a book vending machine is a huge investment. As plans solidify, a crucial decision becomes finding the perfect custom art to adorn the machine.

In almost every instance the client looks to our design team for guidance. So, we send them on a journey through our website.

The site provides the client an opportunity to show us their likes and dislikes. We do this by helping them build a basic design. They pick the style, set the colors, place the logos, and size the text. Then the client submits that artwork.

Megan Schultz decided she needed a little extra help finding something that reflected her school spirit. That’s where our team of seasoned designers at stepped in to delivery a high quality product. With their extensive expertise, the designers were ready to turn Harrison Elementary’s vision into a reality.

Lex, the graphic designer in charge of Harrison’s machine explained her process,

“This customer was stalled out on what to do. She had been through our Dav’Inchy design site but couldn’t get the vibe for the machine to match the art the school wanted. So I set up a zoom call with them. I recommended they send the art over to me.

After that I used their designs as a starting off point. After the initial proof, we just tweaked a few things with the wording and graphics. The school wanted to see multiple options so they never had to think “what if” about the design. It only took four proofs to be approved.”

The design team makes all the adjustments, tweaks the graphics, and makes suggestions based on experience. First, the designer will generate a proof or first draft. Clients can make changes as much as they want. We aren’t satisfied until the client gives us a final sign-off.

Wrapping It Up

Clients have control in the design process. After receiving concept artwork, the first proof is usually ready in less than five days. Once approved, production takes another five days. Most customers are happy with just one proof.

We start by dividing the custom graphics into separate printed panels. From there, the panels move on to the lamination and trimming room. This is where our skilled artists trim, separate, and meticulously inspect each graphic.

Once this process is complete, the machine enters the final production stage. Our professional installers take great care in wrapping the machine. This is the last step before book vending machine undergoes processing for release and final inspection.
