About Sigma

back

Our Mission:
Sigma Marketing is a provider of custom printing and related services focused on meeting customer needs through creativity, flexibility and on-time performance. Sigma values its partnership with customers, suppliers and employees, emphasizing long-term relationships and mutual trust.

Founded in Illinois in 1967 as a commercial printing business, Sigma Press Inc. was strategically developed to become Sigma Marketing. Sigma focused on print production and sales to a specific market segment that utilized desk pad calendars as a vehicle for advertising and sales promotion. Seeking friendlier climate, the administrative, marketing and prepress production facilities were relocated to Florida in 1985.

Sigma has provided quality, custom promotional calendars for many years, serving domestic and international markets. Personal service, our hallmark, is backed by a long history of satisfied customers. Our staff of professionals is both the foundation and the heartbeat of our business. Sigma meets the toughest quality and service standards while creating individualized products and programs.

Why Calendars?

back

Calendars are a practical gift, and a powerful marketing tool.


Advertising is vital to the continued success of any business that relies on customers. Calendars are a cost-effective method of delivering your company's advertising message to your target market.

Your calendar becomes a symbol of your company's image. Calendars have great value and unlike many other forms of advertising, they are a welcomed and appreciated gift. Recipients rely on their calendars and use them many times a day.


Calendars are like having a sales rep in your customer's office every day. Surveys show that 97% of the promotional calendars given as gifts remain in the work place (an additional 2% are taken home). On average, a work space has five calendars. 98% of all people look at a calendar every day, and 74% remember the name of the advertiser! They provide continuous exposure advertising where buying decisions are made.

There is no extra work for you. After choosing a design and the marketing information, you leave the rest to us. From concept through fulfillment, Sigma will handle all the details.

Sending Artwork

back
As a provider of custom printed art, we utilize various types of files to create the best products. When sending your artwork to us for your order, the following information can better help you determine what types of files are best for your project.

Vector Graphics: Vector graphics are images created from mathematical descriptions that determine the position, length and direction in which lines are made. The art is made from collections of lines, rather than dots or pixels. Since the art is mathematical, it will print crisply, even when resized. For instance, one can print a vector logo on a small sheet of paper, then enlarge it to billboard size and maintain the same quality. A low-resolution raster graphic would get excessively pixelated if it were enlarged from business card size to billboard size. The most common file types (ai or EPS) can be created using Adobe Illustrator.

Raster Graphics: Raster graphics are resolution dependent. Unlike vector files, they cannot scale up to any resolution without an apparent loss of quality. Raster graphics are primarily used with photographs, and photo-realistic images, while vector graphics are best suited for typesetting and logos. Raster graphics deal with dpi (dots per inch), which indicates the resolution of images. Typically, the more dots per inch, the higher the resolution of your photos. A common standard for high-resolution printing is 300 dots per inch. This means 300 dots wide by 300 dots tall; equaling 90000 dots per inch. The most common file types (tiff, jpeg, psd) can be created using Adobe Photoshop.
