In the digital age, it can be easy to overlook the importance of print. However, as we are bombarded with throwaway emails and intangible messages on a day to day basis, it seems that now more than ever we should attach importance to the design and effectiveness of communication in paper form – particularly its capacity to help your business stand out from the crowd.
Business stationery is essential; companies and organisations of all sizes can benefit from business card printing, letterheads, envelopes and labels, the latter of which could be used on correspondence, products or packaging – the potential creative uses are limitless!
But where should you begin? We’ve outlined 5 stationery essentials to help boost your brand and add that personal, professional touch.
Letterheads: If you send products, invoices, contracts, quotes, designs, samples or proposals out to clients, you’ll need a professional, corporate letterhead. A standard letterhead will include your business name, postal address, web address, email address, phone and fax numbers.
Compliment Slips: These invaluable little strips could contain a lot of the same information as a letterhead, or simply your logo and a stylish footer with your company strapline. But more importantly, they also include a space to print or, even better, handwrite a quick but personal message.
Envelopes: The ultimate first impression – hard copies of documents supplied in good quality, branded envelopes can really help boost your professional image. Include your logo, return address, web address, or even a quirky, memorable message on the reverse.
Labels: These versatile stickers can be used for a variety of applications in business. From product labels to discount stickers, to packaging, wrapping and address labels, label printing can help boost your brand as well as increasing efficiency. What’s better is that label designs can be as colourful and personal as your business. Think about fonts, brand logos, images, photos and colours to create an eye catching label, or keep it slick and stylised with an understated, monochrome approach.
Business Cards: Business cards can be the biggest business booster of all. They reflect your brand, contain vital information and represent yourself, staff, sales people, your products and more. They are a pocketsize, powerful lead generator, business brochure and call to action, all in one.
