A Guide To Poster Printing And Other Advertising
In this day and age, although the world heavily relies on the internet and digital technology for advertising, printed marketing is still widely used by many sorts of individuals and businesses. Advertising on radios, TV and the internet is very common, but placing a poster in a shop window, school or university notice board can still be very effective.
For as long as the high street exists, posters should be a common way of advertising events, charities and businesses, as well as many other things. They can also be placed in other locations, such as community halls, libraries, leisure centres and shopping centres, to name just a few. Permission may need to be sought before putting them up though, so be sure to look into this before turning up with fifteen copies and some sellotape.
Leaflets are another great way of advertising and can often be handed out in the street to passers by. Permission from the local council may be required for this. Sometimes you will need to purchase a permit before undertaking any flyering. Some towns and cities are stricter than others, so policies may vary from one location to another.
Poster printing can be cost-effective if you choose the right printing company. There are eco-friendly versions which use recycled paper available so you can limit the impact your operations will have on the environment as much as possible. Usually, the higher quantity of posters you get printed, the cheaper it will work out per unit, and prices may also vary depending on the type of paper you want to use, as well as the thickness and the finish, and whether the design is in colour or just black and white. It may cost more to get both sides of the paper printed onto also.
Different sizes are available to choose from, and you should have the option to select either matt or glossy. There may be some other finishes also available, depending on the company and what they offer to customers. Waterproof and laminated versions may also be offered; these are great for placing in outdoor locations or even swimming pool notice boards.
Printing turnarounds can vary depending on the order and the company that you have purchased from. However, it is usually very speedy and delivery is often straight to your door. Some companies may also offer collection options from the store though.
Exhibition stands are a popular way of advertising at exhibitions. All sorts of stands are available to choose from, such as reusable stands for multiple shows and portable, flexible stands for ease of mobility. Maximum impact stands can create a big wow factor to potential customers and clients, so choosing the right stand for you and your business completely depends on your needs and what you require the effect to be. Exhibition stand hire is another option to explore, and may work out cheaper if you only need one for a short period of time.
Pop up stands, banner stands, panel displays, display counters, outdoor displays, tablecloths, leaflet holders and fabric displays are just some of the other types of displays on offer to order. Each company may offer something slightly different, so be sure to check out the various options online.
