Exhibition trade shows

At trade shows you’ll be competing with a lot of other businesses to grab attention and so it is important that your print stands out and is different to the rest of the printed materials that are being handed out by the rest of the exhibitors. Print materials are ideal for visitors to take away with them and have something to remember your brand by. Including your contact details, website and social media handles is also imperative so visitors can explore your business further after they’ve been to the show. See it as a gateway to your digital presence. Brochures, business cards, order/lead forms and brand awareness printed marketing products are all great to have at trade shows.

In ‘goodie bags’

If you’re sponsoring or even attending an event or tradeshow you could always get in touch with the organisers and ask to put your printed marketing in their goodie bags if they’re having them as giveaways at the event. Or alternatively, you can make your own goodie bags to give away at events or tradeshows. Goodie bags are always popular freebies to give away, you could fill them with notepads, reusable water bottles, USB chargers, snacks, and engaging brochures outlining your products or services.

Inside packaged orders

When you’re sending out your orders, you can pop print marketing in your packages to send out to entice your customers to buy from you again. A few ideas to put in your packages are offers on next order postcards, brochures, upcoming product launches and brand awareness cards. Why not put as QR code on your print to direct your customers to your site, or give them an exclusive offer on their next purchase to say thank you for ordering from you.

Point of sale display

Do you have a physical premises where your customers visit? Reception desks or till points are ideal to display your print marketing. You can even display Z-Fold Cards in matching display boxes. Display boxes can really add a professional, branded touch to your till point or desk and offer customer’s or guests all the information they’re looking for about your business. Incredibly effective on hotel reception desks. Print can provide guests with maps of the local areas and hotel facility information to ensure their stay with your hotel is a great one and they come back for a second visit!
