The Print Advantage: My 2 Cents Design on Tangible Marketing

In a world obsessed with screens, do physical marketing materials still have a place? Addie Goodwin-Evans, founder of My 2 Cents Design and a staunch advocate for print, believes the answer is a resounding “yes.”

For Addie, print isn’t merely a medium; it’s a philosophy. She understands that a well-crafted brochure, with its carefully selected paper and vibrant colors, or a textured business card that subtly commands attention, offers a tangible experience that digital interactions often lack.

PrintingCenterUSA is thrilled to share Addie’s story and insights into how she uses print to empower businesses of all sizes to make a lasting impact.

Now, let’s unfold the story and discover the magic behind the mastermind herself, Addie.

From Dream to Reality

Drawn to the potential for both artistic expression and strategic business impact, Addie recognized the ability of effective visual communication to give businesses a distinct voice and identity. Beyond simple aesthetics, she believes that great design lies in understanding a client’s core values and translating them into powerful visuals that resonate with their target audience.

We asked Addie to share some highlights of how she started, “My journey into entrepreneurship didn’t begin with a grand revelation or a meticulously crafted business plan. Instead, it was a gradual realization fueled by a combination of life experiences and a passion for design.”, Addie shares.

“Looking back, I realize that success isn’t about having all the answers or following a predetermined path. It’s about staying true to oneself, learning from failures, and finding joy in the process of growth.Today, I’m grateful for the opportunity to pursue my passion and support others on their own entrepreneurial journeys. My hope is to inspire fellow business owners to embrace authenticity, seize opportunities, and never lose sight of the values that drive them forward.” – Addie

A Collaborative Approach

Addie prioritizes open communication throughout the design process, valuing the exchange of ideas and truly getting to know the heart of each client’s business. With an ability to distill complex concepts into easily understandable terms, she helps guide clients to the perfect balance of form and function. Addie’s approach ensures that no detail is overlooked.

“We’re here to make a real difference in our clients’ lives. Whether it’s helping a local restaurant attract more diners or designing a stunning book cover for a self-published author, we’re all about helping our clients shine.” – Addie

  • Web & Digital Design: Addie recognizes the interconnectedness of print and digital. She designs websites and social media assets that seamlessly complement print materials, creating a consistent brand experience across all channels.

The Power of Print

Addie’s passion for print is rooted in both data and an intuitive understanding of human response. She cites not only customer engagement metrics but the neuroscience behind how our brains process information presented in print versus how we engage with screens. Print engages multiple senses simultaneously, strengthening memory creation and fostering a deeper, more lasting connection with clients.

Thriving in a Saturated Market: My 2 Cents Design Strategies for Success

Addie recognizes the challenges of standing out in a world filled with talented graphic designers. However, she’s honed a set of strategies that set My 2 Cents Design apart from the crowd:

  • Results-Oriented Approach: While aesthetics are vital, Addie always focuses on the big picture: how her designs will help businesses achieve their marketing goals. She tracks key metrics with her clients to demonstrate the value of her work.

“In essence, our differentiation strategy is rooted in the belief that our customers are the true heroes of their stories. By empowering them with tailored solutions, unwavering support, and unparalleled service, we position ourselves as allies on their journey to success.” – Addie
