Through print marketing there are endless opportunities to design and advertise your brand and business. In comparison with other forms of marketing whether it be digital adverts or emails, print marketing can create almost constantly visibility. Print media offers a variety of content areas: inspiration, special offers, news, updates and more, all of which generate engagement between the reader and the brand. To get the most out of your marketing collateral it pays to use high quality designs and materials such as a glossy front and back cover or a thicker paper stock.

Screen Break

Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS), a condition resulting from focusing your eyes on a computer or screen for a sufficient period of time is becoming more apparent amongst many of us today. This increased recognition of the harmful side effects of excessive screen use is leading to more of us turning back to traditional information platforms in a non-digital format. Studies have shown the act of touching paper and turning pages increases the retention rate of the information you are reading. This sensory media experience has the capability to promote brand awareness and your advertising effectiveness. It’s a no brainer, if you want people to know more about your business and the products and services you offer, give them something physical to read.

Printed flyers, brochures, leaflets and posters work as standalone campaigns but also when used in conjunction with other forms of online tools. Printed marketing materials have the ability to transfer far more information to the potential audience than digital advertising platforms largely due to space .Catalogues and brochures provide inspiration for customers and potential new customers who can be directed to your website to make their purchase. Research has shown that adding print to your advertising media mix will increase the return of investment of your marketing campaign.
