Print, print, repeat!

Quality printed promotional materials are essential for your business, especially with the new year on the horizon. Think of these products like portable billboards; there is unlimited opportunity for people to view and interact with them. From brochures and business cards to wearable items like T-shirts and tote bags, well-designed promotional materials can increase your business reach and brand recognition.

Let’s get started.

When choosing promotional products for your business, it is easy to get overwhelmed. There are so many options to choose from, and you want to select the right products that will have an impact. We recommend starting by choosing two to three items that will boost your business presence and reach your target audience. Products like business cards, brochures, and booklets are good candidates for this first round of promotional print materials. Once you have those down, you can incorporate more items that tie into your marketing plan or upcoming special events. For example, if you have a new store opening, custom tote bags are a great option that will make an impression and will be reused again and again. Or perhaps you are attending an industry convention. Pens and stickers are a popular and portable item for conventions. Last but certainly not least, you will want to have a healthy array of printed promotional items. It is best to add to and update your products throughout the year to keep things fresh. With the new year coming up, now is the perfect time to evaluate your current promotional materials and shake things up!

Time to Design.

A well-designed promotional product can speak volumes about your business. Contrarily, a poorly designed, blurry, or unclear one can do more harm than good. These products reflect your business and are often the first impression a customer will have. Therefore, you want them to be visually pleasing and fit your company’s branding. How do you achieve a well-designed product? Following your branding guidelines, following design principles, and selecting quality materials during the printing process is the foundation of a quality printed product. Pro-tip, communicate with your printer! They are a valuable resource to guarantee you send the correct file type and that the product you get will meet your expectations.
