What are Print Marketing Materials?

Do I Need Print Marketing Materials?
The simple answer is Yes. Print marketing materials carry long-lasting value for your business by strengthening your brand and increasing your customers awareness.
What is the Difference Between Digital Marketing Materials and Print Marketing Materials?
What are digital marketing materials? These are all of your digital assets including websites, emails, and social media ads. However, these materials have a fatal flaw that print marketing materials do not: they are easily ignored. Studies have shown that customers actually spend more time looking at print ads, recalled more information about the ad, and had a stronger emotional reaction to the content. Print marketing materials give your customers something tangible that they can interact with and keep in their home so that they are always being reminded of your business.
What Custom Print Marketing Materials Are Right For Your Business?
High-quality print marketing materials result in a higher ROI, more exposure, and higher sales! Since these marketing materials are going to be a direct reflection of your company, you need to make sure that these materials are engaging, and well-designed. Below are the most effective print marketing materials and some print essentials that you need.
Most Effective Print Marketing Materials

Booklets are proven to be success for marketing, educating, gaining awareness, and setting you apart from the competition. They are an affordable way to reach your audience and build trust. A booklet is a small saddle stitch book, with a paper cover and a lower page count between 8 to 92 pages. These help your customers make more educated purchasing decisions, expose your customers to new products, or walk your customers through a certain process.

Tips on Designing a Calendar
First step is to choose your audience. Once you have determined who your audience is, you can start to choose the pictures that you will include in the calendar. Another thing to consider is are you going to include advertisements or sponsors? If so, you will have to include a space for a “thank you” page and advertisements throughout the grids. Now that you have your target audience in mind, it’s time for the fun part, choosing the photos! These photos have to be a part of a larger theme like photos from an event or trip, pictures of animals, or places that relate to your business. Just remember if the resolution isn’t high, tell that photo goodbye. Use PrintingCenterUSA’s online design tool to make designing your calendar fast and easy.
