What makes printed marketing so successful?
Print engages existing and prospective customers. Versatile, creative and persuasive, printed marketing has a unique ability to grab and hold people’s attention in a way no other media channel can offer. And by including QR codes and web details, you can use it as part of your overall marketing mix by directing customers to your website and social media pages.

Getting creative with print
A look at digitalprinting.co.uk will give you some idea of the range of printed products and how they can be used to increase sales and promote awareness of your brand. A great advantage of printed marketing is that people can read it anywhere, in their own time and at their leisure. Popular forms of print marketing include:
Brochures, Catalogues and Leaflets
Print is a tangible form of promotion which engages existing and prospective customers. People will take more time to browse a booklet or brochure in print than online, where they scan quickly for information before moving on. Depending on your content, we can print leaflets of single or few pages, right up to books of 700 pages.
Letterheads, business cards and compliment slips remain an essential part of your business marketing. You can also brand stickers and address labels, further growing awareness of your brand.
Stands, Banners and Vinyl
For shops, windows, trade shows or outdoor, we have a wide range of pull-up banners, exhibition stands and vinyl options to make your business stand out.
Posters and Point of Sale
We print a huge range of posters ranging in size from A4, right up to large format outdoor advertising like 48 sheet billboards. The beauty of digital print is that there is no minimum print run, so you don’t need to print more posters then you need.
We recycle up 99% of our recyclable materials too and we’re constantly looking for ways to improve our green credentials even more. To see the range of products or to find out more about how printed marketing can help your business, contact our expert team today of visit us on digitalprinting.co.uk
