Bissell Design has worked with 760Print for many years. What sets them apart from the rest is that they are more than just a source for printing. 760Print will create the best solutions for your company’s marketing needs. They are a one-stop marketing/consulting/printing power house. We enjoy working with them and their clients on many of their designs and marketing strategies. It’s a pleasure to work with others who know what they are doing and do it well!
We are proud of our clients and the work they do to better serve their communities and the world we live in. Each year many of our clients host events to raise money or just to get together for some face-to-face networking opportunities. Promoting an event can be key to its success. Here are some of the events we have designed promotional materials for.
Community Associations Institute (CAI) is an organization dedicated to building better communities by providing education and resources to volunteer homeowners who govern community associations and the professionals who support them.
Having worked with the Coachella Valley chapter of CAI for the past six years, we are excited to be a part of their recent move and much needed expansion. The chapter has been growing by leaps and bounds and we have been so happy walking with them during this time of rapid growth. It will be amazing to see members having their own space to gather for meetings, a designated boardroom, educational facilities and more.
We help with CAI-CV's branding and the building is an expansion of who they are. We look forward to helping wherever we are needed.

After more than twenty-five years in the same office suite, CAI-CV is making a historic move to a new professional office building near the corner of Cook Street and Gerald Ford. For the past two years, CAI-CV has been looking for a new space large enough to house a classroom. “We finally found the right location,” said CAI-CV President Phyllis Harkins, “CAI-CV’s primary mission of education will be taken to a new level with this move.”
The Chapter’s new address will be 75410 Gerald Ford Drive, Suite 102, Palm Desert, CA 92211.
The new suite is twice the size of the current space and the classroom will hold 40 to 50 students. The Board has already scheduled more than twenty classes for the new classroom in 2018. The classes will include more education for managers, business partners, and community board members. A new CAI nationally approved two-hour “Board Basic Training” course for Homeowner Leaders (NEW NAME – SEE ARTICLE ON PAGE 15) is in the development stage and will be offered free to board members throughout the Valley monthly during the season.
The buildout plans are in the drawing stage for City approval and construction will begin in a few weeks. Business partners who are interested in donating time, materials or expertise to the moving project, you are needed. Please contact the CAI-CV office if you would like to help. The move is expected to take place in October or November. We will keep you informed through Quorum and E-blasts.
After the first draft, we realized Pegasus' eyes were looking too much like a horse from the Barbie movies. We were able to make a quick change. No Barbie horses here. Next round will be some work on the back legs.
Our good friends at Su Refugio are doing more and more to help orphans and widows around the world. It's exciting to see the lives they are helping to change. We work hard to make it easy for them to look good now while planning for the future.
Many companies and organizations have limited budgets for marketing (especially not-for-profits who spend the bulk of their income on helping others). Or, they are so busy in their ministry that there isn't the time to work on a long-term marketing plan.
A strong brand and custom template work together as a simple and effective solution for any marketing/fundraising piece. The initial design time and expense are well worth it and actually save costs in the future.
Templates are one of the best ways to make anyone's brand more constant. New projects will take less time and money. They will also remain consistent to the brand and therefore familiar to the people they are communicating with. Our plan for each of Su Refugio's ministry brochures uses the same template, changing out the bright colors and dropping in new text and images for new issues. Simple production work.
It may take a little more time and money on the front end of a project, but the benefits -- quick turn-around-time, less expense for future issues and strong, consistent brand recognition -- are worth it.
South Coast Lighting and Design is a great company to work with. We have fun driving through cities that have the poles we designed for them.
Monrovia looks great with the new archway we helped design.
