    How To Choose The Right Process For Your Business Product.

    There are a number of considerations to take into account when deciding what will work best for your business identity:

    1) Quantity

    Is your project a limited run, for a very select target market? Is it based on a "limited time only" campaign? Or is this for national or international distribution?

    2) Quality

    How long does the product need to last in the marketplace? Will it be subjected to UV rays and extreme weather, does it need to be "Marine-Grade", or is it simply for indoor use? (And yes, Empire products have been used in deep space.)

    3) Impact

    Is your business product simply for legal compliance with current regulations, such as a 'Warning" label? Or is this product symbolic of your company, and your company's quality?

    4) Cost

    "ROI", or Return On Investment, is a significant consideration. Factors that need to be considered in the light of cost are measurable factors such as product longevity, color, and the overall purpose of the product itself. Factors that are not so easily measured typically have much to do with "Brand" and branding goals. The perceptions of the target market concerning your product and your company are ultimately and irrevocably important.
