what we do

Delivering the Vision

We often get calls from clients saying, “I have this concept in my head, but I don’t know where to start!” It takes experience and resourcefulness to break big ideas down into bite-sized pieces, but we have been working with nonprofits for over 25 years, and will do just that . We help organizations to build their marketing wish lists, prioritize use of limited funds, and ensure they are set up to make their vision a reality without breaking the bank.

Picture this: the post office is holding up your large marketing campaign because the design or addressing does not comply with their mailing requirements. Assuming it can still be mailed on time, or at all, your postage cost is suddenly doubled.

This is exactly what our 25+ years of experience saves you from: We review mailing specifications at the same time that we plan creative designs and printing. Our team prototypes different formats that unravel a marketing message to make it engaging and effective before the message itself is even put on paper or online. This allows us to ensure that print and digital marketing integrate and support one another. Looking at the full communications plan before tackling any one aspect allows the big picture to support the details and vice-versa.

Distinctly from agencies that only focus on one form of marketing, our multifaceted expertise ensures that projects are planned out to the detail, cross-media, efficient, and affordable.

Print is not dead. Digital is not the only answer. The answer to increasing engagement and retention is INTEGRATED MEDIA.

we help organizations succeed THROUGH CAREFULLY PLANNED AND EXECUTED COMMUNICATIONS

Planning & Branding

What you do, How, for Whom, and Why will define your organization's uniqueness. We will help you develop steps, a voice, a style, an image, and printed/online targeted messages to grow awareness.

Graphic Design

Boring does not get results. Good design is one that appeals to the emotions and the mind. Design is speech: it must be compelling, cohesive, coherent, creative, and targeted to get results.

Printing

Paper is a keepsake. We offer full service offset and digital printing with powerful creativity and options you didn't even know were available! Get appeals, brochures, event materials, signage, promotional materials, stationary, and more... more... more!

A Full Marketing Review? Admin Support to stay on track?

You need to get an appeal out. You want to expand your donor or client list. Your image could use a refresher. Your website needs a stronger focus. And posting online is tedious, repetitive, and time-consuming...

WHERE TO BEGIN?

Too often, feeling overwhelmed turns into paralysis. Crest can help you prioritize your tasks and time, to put your efforts and resources where they will yield better results.

Reviews are flat-fee projects to get you on your way. Admin support may be hourly or on retainer.

WHAT ARE THEY SAYING?

We could not be happier with, nor more impressed by, Crest Marketing. Sue Moylan and her team are truly intuitive strategists who deliver keen expertise and inspiring creativity to both our print and digital marketing projects. Everyone at Crest takes a very personal interest in crafting and perfecting meaningful, compelling communications for our organization. Their responsiveness and turnaround are always swift, and they have bent over backwards more than once to speedily and expertly resolve the unavoidable project glitches that, despite careful planning, always occur. We rely on Crest to bring high attention to detail, deep industry knowledge, and consistent budget awareness - truly a blessing for a cost-conscious nonprofit - to everything we undertake together. On top of all that, they are terrific fun people, unfailingly cheerful and eager to accept the next challenge. Thank you, Crest Marketing!

- JOHN CROSS, LONG BEACH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

I have been working with Sue for well over a decade, and her level of service is outstanding. Every year, she helps us review our printed materials and works hard to help us develop a superior product while focusing on efficient ways to reduce costs for my clients. Who knew that the location of colored pages within a book could affect price so much? Crest Marketing is my go-to printer and fundraising materials resource.

- TAMMY BOOTH, ADMINISTRATIVE INTELLIGENCE

I worked with Sue through my previous employer 12 years ago; naturally, I turned to her when I started my own company which has now grown into five! I normally give Sue a quick, verbal idea of my vision and she somehow turns it into a full marketing product or website. I recommend and will continue to use Crest as we keep growing.

- LAUREN SPIGLANIN, FAMILY CONNECT CARE

Crest helped me achieve a company brochure I can be proud of and that relates to my business community. It is clean, organized, and I can use if for years to come.
