When it comes to marketing materials, we tend to think digital first these days. But there’s still immense value in printed promotional merchandise, whether it’s brochures and flyers, branded business cards or large-scale banners and billboards.

Printed materials are the perfect way to build hype around your brand, products and services, or simply to let people know more about what you have to offer. By overlooking printed merchandise in favour of a solely digital approach, you could be missing out on an effective way of staying in touch with your customers.

What are the benefits of printed promotional merchandise?

A Tangible Product

Printed materials provide a concrete, tactile experience that digital content can’t match. With interruptions like notifications, pop-ups and the temptation to multitask, it can be hard to hold the attention of your digital audience. But print materials enable readers to concentrate solely on the content without these distractions, resulting in a more immersive experience.

Improved Credibility

Printed materials, when produced to a high standard, can lend credibility to your brand. They help your business look more professional and established – by choosing the right materials and investing in great design, you evoke a sense of quality and value that customers are drawn to. Similarly, they can be used to reinforce your branding and brand recognition, which encourages loyalty from your customers.

Increased Reach

With printed materials, you can widen the scope of people you can reach. Not everyone is active on social media or online generally, and so by having printed materials that can be handed out in-store or at events, or mailed to your customer base directly, you can increase the number of people who see your marketing materials and learn about your brand.

Longer Lifespan

Printed materials often have a longer lifespan than digital marketing efforts. For instance, business cards can be kept for long periods, serving as a lasting reminder of the business whenever the recipient requires its services or products. Likewise, flyers and brochures can be kept on hand to browse later on, while web pages or URLs might be forgotten about or mis-typed.

Choosing the Best Printed Marketing Materials For Your Business

Selecting the most effective printed marketing materials for your business requires consideration of several factors, including your target audience, marketing goals and budget. Here are some tips to guide you:

Identify Your Target Audience: Understanding your audience’s preferences, needs and behaviours is crucial for the best results. For instance, younger demographics might prefer digital marketing efforts, whereas older audiences may favour traditional printed materials. Finding ways to merge the two can help you reach a larger group of people.

Define Your Marketing Goals: Whichever printed materials you choose, they should align with your overall marketing objectives. If your goal is to enhance brand awareness, for example, brochures or flyers can be very effective. If it’s for networking and client acquisition, business cards are a great option.

Consider the Message: The complexity and nature of your message are important. If the message is detailed or requires extensive information, a catalogue or booklet might be more suitable to get the information across in the right way.

Evaluate Budgets: Printed marketing materials can vary significantly in cost, so it’s important to establish what your budget is for the campaign and select materials that will ensure a good return on investment.

Why Work with Professional Printers?

Using a professional printing service for your marketing materials can yield several advantages. First, professional printers possess the equipment and expertise to create high-quality printed materials that are visually striking and consistent in colour and design. This guarantees that the items are of superior quality and present your business in the best light.

To cater to a business’s specific requirements and preferences, professional printers offer customisation options, including paper stock, finishes and sizing. This enables you to produce distinctive and attention-grabbing printed materials that set you apart from your competitors.

Moreover, professional printing services are capable of producing large volumes of printed materials swiftly and efficiently, saving you significant time, effort and money.

On behalf of Mansell McTaggart in Horsham, we'd like to say thank you to TDP for a superbly managed project in the production of our yearly magazine. By the nature of the property market, the flow of data change to TDP was dynamic and the design team were accurate, tenacious and highly communicative throughout. Up against a tight deadline leading up to the festive period, we couldn't have asked for more co-operation to help us get there. Superb service, quality output from both design and print channels and we are absolutely coming back again. Highly recommend TDP to small, medium and corporate businesses - they adapt to their customer needs with ease. Thank you for a great project, guys! :)

I needed to get some A5 leaflets printed for the next day: I called Treetop design at 09:00 in the morning and not only were they able to print my leaflets but they also quoted me the cheapest price. I sent the files to them and they provided a proof for my review before proceeding with the job. I was extremely happy with the result (the print was of a higher quality then the previous printer I had used).
