#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Copies”, “Signs”and “Ink”, you can see that while these words can be related to Printing, they also suggest that you can expect a range of related services from this buisiness. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great printing business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Flawless Copies

This name brings to mind a high degree of professionalism and accuracy.

We Just Print

This name conveys the idea of a specialist who is dedicated solely to printing.

The Dream Printers

This name lets us imagine a print firm that turns our dreams into reality.

The Copy Masters

This name conveys the solidity of a long-established industry expert.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great printing business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful printing businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Dependable Letter Press logo

Dependable Letterpress gives us the idea of reliability that is so important in the printing industry. It also has a classic feel to it that could prove attractive to some customers. They have managed to convey a good idea of their business without even mentioning print or printing in their name.

ABC Printing Logo

ABC Printing Company is a name that keeps it simple. It lets us know what they do and also give us an insight into a straightforward approach that is hinted at with the use of ABC. It also works as it is nicely memorable.

Kwik Kopy Logo

Kwik Kopy is a business whose name probably divides opinions. Not everyone likes deliberately misspelt words like this. However, there is no denying that it is easy to remember and describes perfectly what people expect to get from them.

5 Tips for naming your printing business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

1. Do a Competitor Analysis

Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:

  • What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
  • Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
  • Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?

2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused printing terms like print or printer. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real printing business named “Dependable Letterpress”.

Literally, this name let’s us consider this as being a trustworthy place to entrust with our printing jobs. They have also included a vintage feel to the name that helps to bring to mind the image of an old-fashioned printer going about their work with a vintage press.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Perfect Print, Classy Copies)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Ink – an essential part of many printing processes)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable printing business names could be:

  • Printafast
  • Costa Copies
  • Maxi Printers

You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com

5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.

Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Easy Print and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Easy to Print, Print It Easy or Easier Printing.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
