An App That You Would Be Crazy To Travel Without.

A little change of pace today on the folderprinters.com blog. I thought I would start a new type of blog post, one that focuses on great resources for design, sales and marketing professionals.

Last week one of our staff members was using an online application which sparked a conversation with another staff member that lead me to an amazing app, an app that you would be crazy to travel without. This app developed by Quest Visual, is called “Word Lens".

Word Lens is what is known as a visual translator. This visual translator works with both iOS and Android devices and can be purchased through both iTunes and Google play. Word Lens is so simple to use, once you download the app, all you have to do is launch the app and point the camera of your smart phone at the text you need translated.  Word Lens does the rest in about a second and without a network. That's right, no network needed!

At this time Word Lens translates the following languages with more to come. These languages are:

  • English ⇆ Portuguese
  • English ⇆ German
  • English ⇆ Italian
  • English ⇆ French
  • English ⇆ Spanish

So, if you do a lot of business travel outside the US, then this is an app that you would be crazy to travel without.

Check out the video above to see just how simple it is to use.

This Presentation Folder is Too Cool for School

This presentation folder which is just too cool for school, comes to us from
APVisions Photography, a company that specializes in school portraits. APVisions Photography sent in this amazing design which they donated to a local school. This design is a perfect example of how to show your school pride while keeping all of your school papers in order. School folders can keep your homework organized as well as the paperwork that seems to get buried in the bottom of a child's backpack that needs that all important parent signature.

With this type of folder, you can incorporate many helpful elements in the design, such as a multiplication table, a mission statement, a message from the principal, a list of presidents, the alphabet, a calendar, and many more helpful elements if left to your imagination.

Keep in mind that the inside of the folder can be printed to incorporate further information to assist the student in their education. In this case, the pockets of the folder have been utilized with messages to better organize the student.

Printing Specifications:
Ink: 4/0
Stock: 14pt Cover with Gloss AQ
Bindery: 2 Pockets
Template: 2 Panel Pocket Folder Template
