Character

Character is made up of specific traits or qualities that determine how we respond to events, situations and circumstances of our life. Consequently, it is a manifestation of the inner reality. It is the outcome of the real-life of an individual’s effort to express himself. Typically, each of us as individuals have some qualities that are positive and some negative, some stronger and others weaker.

Thus, it is those traits that determine how we will respond in any given situation. For instance, a person with a character quality of “endurance” will keep on going even when the “going gets tough” instead of giving up.

Generally, it is our character that determines our success in life. However, that doesn’t mean that good people will always experience more success than bad people.

Here, we have highlighted some traits that can lead to success in life. These include;

  1. Honesty
  2. Integrity
  3. Dependability
  4. Enthusiasm
  5. Loyalty
Value

Presently, there is nothing more valuable to any team or company than people of good character. These type of people hold traits within themselves that separates them from others. On several occasions, the weakness of a single character has damaged relationships, businesses, opportunities etc.

As humans, we can intentionally seek to build good character qualities in our lives, families, businesses, organisations to which we belong and in the world at large.

Currently, the world faces many difficult problems; escalating crime, drug and alcohol abuse, workplace violence, gang activities, vandalism etc. These vices can be significantly curbed if we all demonstrate the right characters at all times.

 In conclusion, it is evident that societal change begins with our characters as individuals. Therefore, let us make sure to cultivate the best characters that we can, to make our businesses, community and the world at large a better place.

printer problems and solutions

Printing is a relatively easy technology when you understand the knowhow and everything functions properly. Just like all other technologies, it develops minor faults sometimes and requires an operator who can fix it, without seeking the aid of a technician. Needless to say, it is quite frustrating when you send a document to the printer and it doesn’t print it as expected or worse, at all.

Here are some common printer problems and some DIY solutions you can apply to attempt fixing it yourself;

 

  1. Computer cannot find printer:

It is really annoying to plug your printer and suddenly your computer doesn’t recognize it, here are some quick troubleshooting you can do to fix it;

  • Make sure the printer is turned on. If it isn’t, turn it on.
  • Try rebooting your computer and also restart the printer by turning it off from the socket.
  • Check printer and scanner settings to see if printer is properly installed. If you can’t find your current printer installed, then you will need to install it from the provided disk or check online for the correct printer software driver. Download it and install.
  • If your computer doesn’t recognize that a hardware has been plugged in, check that your printer connecting cable is working properly. Get a replacement cable if you sense a glitch while testing each ends of the cable.

 

  1. Slow Printing

One common printer problem is slow printing; printer takes long time to print little regular office documents. This is normally caused by printer settings or low memory.

If you need to print documents that don’t require details of any sort, I will suggest you go to printer properties and select fast print or standard print. This will enable the printer print faster and save you ink. If after you change settings and it is still slow, it means you are printing a pretty heavy document for the printer to handle and you need to upgrade your system memory and probably upgrade your printer.

 

  1. Paper Jams

This is a very common problem associated with almost all printers. Paper jam is usually a two-way problem. The first is that paper gets stuck in your printer’s rollers. While the second is that the rollers of your printer draw two or more sheets at the same time.

You can solve this problem by inspecting the paper path and remove all the jammed material. Take out the stuck paper straight without tearing it.

A misaligned paper can cause jam as well. To resolve this issue, remove the tray and position the paper correctly. Also, ensure the type or grammage of paper is supported by your printer.

If your printer still jams, you need to call in a professional.  Be certain your printer rollers are checked and possibly replaced.

 

  1. Bad looking Prints

Even if the printer is operating perfectly, the final product may sometimes look terrible. Poor quality of image may make the appearance unprofessional and sloppy.

In order to make the printing quality better, follow one of the steps below:

  • Make sure print driver have correct paper or media selected.
  • Check whether toner cartridges and fuser is in order.
  • In order to eliminate smudge marks, print few blank sheets and it will eventually fade away.

 

The next time you encounter these common printer problems, just try out the solutions above.

An excellent logo is the finishing touch to your brand and will speak for itself anywhere it is showcased, serving as a distinctive visual identity. In addition, such excellent visual identity will definitely make your brand standout from all other brands. Consequently, It is important to consider some vital attributes when creating your brand logo to achieve an excellent look. at print.kwatri.com, we’ve studied logos and streamlined these attributes into four (4), that your need to keep in mind when trying to achieve an excellent look;

  1. Simplicity:

A simple logo is effective and easily recognizable at first glance.

Simple logos are the ones people can recognize as soon as they see them. More often than not, the simplest logos are the ones people remember the most. I know you want your logo to say a lot to anyone who sees it , but to be realistic; less complication on your logo gives a better impression.

A good example of a simplistic logo is the Apple logo, it is so simple and they do not bother spelling out their name after the company logo is stamped on any of their products.

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  1. Appropriate/ Relevant

Some logo designs can be abstract but try as much as possible to keep it appropriate. Regardless of how abstract your choice logo looks like, make sure it has a relevant meaning to your business or brand.

Your logo must not show what your brand is about. For example; Nike logo has nothing to do with clothes or shoes but I bet wherever you see that swoosh of Nike, you think sport clothes and shoes.

You can have the best logo but it wouldn’t be appropriate for your brand. Simple example is designing a beautiful colourful logo that is appropriate for kiddies park and then offering same design to a law firm or a hospital. In designing your logo, you should make sure it is relevant to your brand and appropriate to the audience.

  1. Distinctive

The main purpose of your logo is to identify or represent your brand. Be distinct, Standout from the crowd, set yourself apart and do not try to look like your competitors.

You do not want to confuse your customers and you do not want to be mixed up with your competition. Most importantly, you do not want to lose your customers or potential customers.

Without a distinctive logo design, you may find that potential clients and customers have a hard time recognizing your brand. In some cases they may confuse your brand with another company and, most regrettably, end up going elsewhere.

  1. Versatility:

An excellent logo looks good on all platforms. It looks good on digital devices, printed items or paper.

A great logo would not lose its influence regardless of the size. It works perfectly on a big scale as well as on a small scale. An effective logo is a logo that works in colours and in black or white as well.

From large banners and billboards to something small like business cards and websites. Typically, a logo will be put to several uses. Therefore, it is important to create a scalable logo that is legible and maintains detail at all sizes.

Online Printing in Nigeria

So many graphic designers are not into printing, they come up with great designs and never go on to execute the actual print. For that reason, they are not familiar with what it entails to design for print production. Understandably, some clients might want to use a particular graphic designer to design their job, while having it printed with a different company. We at print.kwatri.com, will like to share with you characteristics of a good design. Here are some basic tips you need to keep in mind when designing, to meet the right print specifications.

  1. Clarity and Legibility:

    A good design needs to be easily readable. For a printed work to meet its target, it needs to be clear and legible. That is; the viewers don’t need to solve any puzzle to get the message. It is essential to select the appropriate font so that the reader will not have to strain eyes to grasp the message. People don’t want to try so hard to read your design. Therefore, it’s all up to you to think from the viewers perspective. Keep it simple and legible so your audience can get the message from just a glance.

  2. Use of Space:

    It is vital to use the design space properly and avoid a cluttered design style. Viewers can hardly get any message out of a jam-packed design. Most times, a muddled design is overwhelming for the readers and it takes away their attention from the intended message. Space management is essential in creating a quality print design. Find a short and easy means to get your message across. Leverage on white space, do not fill it up with unnecessary items.

  3. Grammar and Spelling:

    It is very important to ensure that the design is free from grammatical and typographical blunder. This might seem as plain as the nose on your face but, it isn’t rare to see errors on final printed works. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to perform error checks on your design before you print. At kwatri.com, we always run error checks, regardless of who designed it, before we proceed to print production. Take note, a single spelling error can cost you a lot of money as well as your client.

  4. The layout:

    When designing, you have to keep in mind that most viewers start looking from left to right. Because most languages are designed from left to right therefore the mind automatically functions that way. Consequently, your layout should be in a way that you have planned out what you want your viewers to see first and last. A superb print design has to match your brand and communicate your idea properly across various platforms. The design and style ought to link ideas and express information clearly and concisely.

  5. Cut margins

    After your design is printed, it needs to go through a cutting or let’s say trimming process. This is the process of taking out the margins created by the printer. During cutting, the machine cuts a small fraction of the design. Therefore when designing, make sure your information is not at any extreme end of any sides (Top, Bottom, Left and Right).

This is a sample specification we (print.kwatri.com) give to designers to enable us deliver them the best quality print job.

A minimum of 8mm margin (inclusive of the design space) must be maintained around all the borders of the design to factor in cutting & trimming in post print production phase. Without this margin space, you stand the risk of losing some information in the design, after the cut has been made.

It is preferable to maintain a standard size of A3, A4, A5 etc. as the case may be in the design layout. This maintains consistency and aids placement of files easily into the printable format by the print production team.

Feel free to contact print.kwatri.com for your design and print order. We will get it delivered to you anywhere in Nigeria. We currently serve major cities such as Abuja, Kaduna, Lagos, Kano and Port Harcourt amongst others.

Online Printing in Nigeria

There is more to a good print company than the fee they charge for a job. When you patronize a print company (printer), you are not buying a commodity but you are paying for a chain of services. In this process, you have to be certain you’ve got the right printer for the job.

FROM EXPERIENCE

I have been opportune to work with print.kwatri.com for about two years and I have come across different clients with diverse ideas, taste and budget to execute their print jobs. From my experiences working with clients, I have decided to highlight the qualities they expect from a Good Printer.

  1. Quality:

    A good printer will always work hard to give you the best quality job available in the market. They make sure they check details that the client might not be looking out for. At print.kwatri.com, we pay strong attention to details, that is a standard we don’t compromise. While undergoing training, I learnt to always pay attention to details. I have had some of my finished production destroyed and reprinted, because of tiny errors I thought will go unnoticed. The quality of a good print job needs to always be spot on and it should speak for itself.

  2. Price:

    Offering the best print job can be pretty expensive. Nevertheless, a good printer will find a way to make it affordable for the client. He should be able to find efficient cost saving alternatives for the client to fit their budget. Some clients want high end print job with little budget, you should help them find a way around it. However, if you are certain you can’t work with the budget without compromising your standards down, it’s best to decline the project. (Remember Quality comes first)

  3. Customer Service:

    When making deliveries to clients, we get feedbacks such as; “Thank you for not disappointing me”, or “Thank you for delivering on time”. It makes me believe that they must have faced disappointments from other printers at some point or other businesses. A good printer takes every client and job serious, regardless of how small it might be. You must attend to every customer with good welcoming manner; be it enquiry, complaints or print order. You know the phrase “Customers are always right”, Yes! Customers are always right with print.kwatri.com

  4. Trust:

    When clients come to you to handle a print job for them, they are trusting you to handle it for them as if the job is yours. What our client don’t know is that at print.kwatri.com, we take on every clients order and treat it as ours. We recognize the privilege we have in executing a print order. Therefore, we give them a reason to continue trusting and relying on us. A good printer builds on the trust the client has given.

  5. Technical Knowledge:

    A good printer stays current with the technicalities involved in the printing business. For example; understanding the effect of laminating just one side of a paper or not laminating at all. Knowing how to measure bleed margins or other finishing specifications to mention a few. Understanding the technicalities of a printing project will help you suggest appropriate solutions for clients with ambiguous print requirements.

  6. Paper Types:

    A print company without the knowledge of papers is not a print company but a disaster to the society. It is that serious. A printer should know the different types of papers, coated and uncoated. Also, a good printer should know the thickness requirements that suits a print job amongst other specifications. Consequently, this knowledge will result in making the best suggestion to customers.

  7. Digital Capability:

    We live in a digital world now. Today, many things have become computerized and printing is certainly not left behind. Therefore, the use of technology is inevitable if you’re to remain relevant in this ever evolving world. A good printing company should have a design department digitally placed to design or redesign a client’s job, and send it to them online for preview. A customer support representative should be able to interpret the needs of a client without physically meeting the client. Subsequently, having a website is a must. Also, providing reliable assistance on social media platforms is essential.

  8. Delivery:

    Clients want to get their jobs at the comfort of their homes or offices, and a good print company ensures the deliveries are done within the scheduled time frame. Regardless of the fact that print.kwatri.com is located in the capital city of Nigeria (FCT, Abuja), we make deliveries nationwide. States and cities such as Lagos, Ibadan, Kano, Zaria, Minna and Kaduna are some amongst the many we deliver to. To qualify as a good printer, you must be able to deliver at the right time and in the right location.

A good and reliable print company proffers solutions with the client’s best interest at heart. They strive hard to give their customers a good print experience and uphold the brand’s reputation.

In conclusion, I’ll suggest this. On your next print order, be sure to look out for these qualities in your prospective printer. I assure you, when you find them, you’ll get your print order delivered to your expectations.

Part One

Nowadays, the growing competition in almost all businesses makes it vital to find an affordable way to market your brand. There are several affordable ways to showcase the services and products you offer to prospective customers.

Interestingly, delivering top notch services and products to your customers doesn’t necessarily guarantee they’ll become repeat clients. Neither does it guarantee referral for your business to other potential customers. You have to keep promoting your business to earn new leads and keep your previous clients coming back. Business promotions can take your business to the top spot and keep it there.

Offline Tips

Here are a few offline tips of things you can do to promote your business and gain loyal customers;

  1.  Flyers: Also known popularly as ‘handbill‘, a flyer is one of the trendy methods of promoting your business offline. Your flyer should contain little insights about your business and give discounts or promo offers to your prospective clients. Without a doubt, this is a good way to entice them to patronize you. You can easily design and print your flyers online at print.kwatri.com and have it delivered to you anywhere in Abuja within 48 hours.
  2. Business Cards: Your business card usually gives the first impression about your business. Hence, the importance of a well designed business card can’t be over emphasized. Your business card can speak for you when you don’t have the opportunity to speak about it in person physically. At print.kwatri.com, we have a variety of business cards templates online to pick from and customize to your taste, or you can request for a bespoke design. We deliver jobs to Kaduna, Kano, Ibadan, Port Harcourt, Lagos and other cities in Nigeria.
  3. Personalized paper bags (Carrier Bags): Paper bag is an affordable way to brand your business. After packaging your product, you will want to give it to your client in a handy branded carrier bag. People get to view the bags wherever the customer carries it to. It is an effective marketing medium for the business owner. Ensure that your bag is beautifully designed and made of good quality. Your customers will most likely re-use it severally for that reason. Thereby getting you more views for free. Contact print.kwatri.com for the best well made and designed paper bags.
  4. Branded Wrappers: You might say it is way cheaper to use unbranded wraps to package your goods before handing it to your client. You may also be thinking it is just something that will be torn and thrown away. Certainly, that may be true. However, your prospective clients are moved by what they see and you can’t always tell who the package is meant for; especially for orders placed online. As long as you have your branded wrapper on it, it will always make an impression to everyone who comes across it, and that promotes your brand. If someone comes across your brand’s name once or twice, he or she will feel like they know your company already. They will feel comfortable to patronize your business because they have seen your delivered products.
  5. Souvenirs: Making beautiful handy souvenirs, and giving it out to clients as gifts when they patronize your business, usually makes them come back because they feel appreciated by you. Furthermore, apart from you appreciating your clients with souvenirs, it turns to a little form of advert to all the people who come in contact with your client and see the souvenirs they get from doing business with you. Feel free to contact print.kwatri.com to get souvenirs like pens, notepads, jotters, bookmarks, towels, travel mugs, etc., customized and designed for you at an affordable price.
Vital Online Shopping Tips

With the increase in demand for goods and services online, comes the threat increase of cyber theft and scams. Everyone is shopping online these days because of the bargains they can get easily just by surfing through different websites. The shopping is secure and shipping is fast. It is a golden age for shoppers; buying more than ever from the comfort of a mobile device.

Here are Kwatri’s tips on how to stay safe while shopping online:

  1. Shop from known companies and websites

We advice you go directly to a known or popular website other than search randomly using search engines. This is because, search results can sometimes be manipulated and lead you off course. Usually, this happens when you have scrolled through the first few pages of your search result. Always take note of the correct spelling and correct domain name of a website. Watch out for misspellings or sites using a different top-level domain (a .net instead of a .com, for example)—those are the oldest tricks in the book. Sales on these sites usually have offers that are too good to be true.  Our advice is, close tab.

We advice our clients to log onto our website directly with our URL print.kwatri.com for the best printing services and delivery in Abuja, and to other cities in Nigeria such as Kano, Kaduna, Port Harcourt and Ibadan.

  1. Verify the website security and privacy

One of the easiest way to know a secured site is to check if it has SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).

Before you make any purchase from any website, make sure it has SSL encryption installed.

To know this, the site should start with https://  and you should notice the lock symbol, which is in the address bar at the top. (see sample below)

 Kwatri - Online Printing in Abuja Nigeria

Don’t wait until when you need to enter any personal or financial information, before you verify that the site you are on is legitimate and secure.

  1. Update Your Software

Regularly updating your software is an easy thing you can do to protect your information, but many people ignore it. Updates usually come with stronger security to protect you from harm’s way. Developers work hard to provide security updates to fight off the constant growing threats that can be found online. You might consider it a waste of extra data or an inconvenience to wait for your software to update and most times restart, but you should know that the update is totally worth it and it is for your own safety.

So, when next you see your software requesting you to update it, please do well to update as soon as possible to improve your safety online.

  1. Create Strong Password

Your password is the key to your safety. If you have a bad key or a badly fabricated key, then your safety can be easily accessible by the simplest of thieves. You wouldn’t want that, so we advise you to create a strong password to protect the information you provide to any website.

Yes we know it is a pain to go through and change the passwords on all your online accounts, not to mention the trouble it’ll take to try to remember them all. But if you really want to keep your information (and bank account) safe while you’re shopping via the Internet, it’s essential to mix up your account passwords every three to six months. You should also make sure that you don’t have the same password across all your accounts, since that makes them all vulnerable if one is hacked.
