Market your business with eye-catching booklets

May 20, 2017

Whatever your business, giving potential customers information about your business is important. Printed booklets are a superb marketing tool for any company, whether you need to provide a detailed outline of your services or showcase a variety of products. Multiple pages offer more opportunity to expand on information and to use impactful, appropriate images. A quality finished product is something that customers are more likely to keep at hand than a single page flyer.

 

Consider the following before you embark on printing brochures:

 

  • Professional design

Marketing booklets should be designed by a graphic designer who will ensure that what is produced is visually consistent with other branding elements previously printed, such as business cards and adverts.

 

  • Balanced information

Typically, a multi-page brochure will contain more information than a flyer or advert, but less than your website. Think of a booklet as an incentive for potential clients to visit your website rather than a printed copy of it.

 

  • High-quality images

If you are having booklets designed and printed, be aware that quality images can make or break a design. You may consider purchasing stock images or having a professional photograph your products.

 

  • Printing and finishes

When having brochures printed, choose the best quality print and finishes that you can afford. Remember that people will often keep marketing booklets for later reference, so, better quality has more longevity.

 

Minuteman Press Roodepoort, offers a variety of booklet printing options (including saddle-stitched, stapled and perfect bound) as well as finishes such as laminating and foiling. In addition, we have an in-house design team to ensure that your booklets have an eye-catching, professional design.

5 elements of a well-designed brochure

February 24, 2017

If you’re going to invest in a printed brochure – an extremely powerful marketing tool – you need to do it properly. A badly printed, (or even worse a badly designed) brochure will do more harm than if you didn’t get one printed at all. Every well-designed brochure has five elements that need to be executed well. Here they are:

 

  1. A layout that’s pleasing to the eye
    A brochure that is a big, jumbled mess of colours and images will not attract the right attention. The layout of your brochure is extremely important, so be sure to use a skilled designer to do it. It should be tasteful, whilst highlighting the most important information.
  2. High-quality images
    Blurry, low-quality images look terrible and show a lack of attention to detail. Ensure you always use images that are 300dpi for printing.
  3. Helpful information (but not too much)
    Nobody likes to be given a wall of text to read, so keep your copy to the essentials. A good copywriter will be able to get your information across effectively. Ensure you have perfect grammar and sentence structure.
  4. Contact information
    Your brochure must have all your contact details. If you have a shop or showroom, a map to your location is a good idea. Be sure to include phone numbers, email addresses and web addresses. If you have space, a QR code that links straight to your website is a good idea, since brochures tend to get thrown out quite fast.
  5. Your corporate identity
    Always make sure your brochure is designed with your company’s image in mind. The overall look of the brochure is going to send a message as soon as your potential customer picks it up, so ensure that message is one that aligns with your business. Ensure that your brochure impacts with the best possible first impression by utilising colour psychology and creative folds.

 

If you want to print brochures, head to Minuteman Press Roodepoort. We are the experts in printing everything from booklets and catalogues, to banners and business cards. We even have in-house designers to assist you. Contact us to learn more.

Why well-designed stationery still matters for your business

November 23, 2016

In this day and age, having a set of official company stationery designed and printed for your business may seem a bit unnecessary. After all, everything is done over email… right? But think of it this way: whenever you want to present something important, like an ID document or a marriage certificate, it is printed. Having something printed well on high-quality paper lends a certain amount of respect to the content printed. That is why you should respect your company by presenting information on well-designed, branded letterheads and envelopes. Read on for more information.

  • There will always be a need to print something on paper
    It doesn’t matter how much things have become digital, at some point you will still need to print something – whether it’s an invoice, a packing slip or a thank you card. In a business context, these documents need to show your company’s logo and brand identity in a professional manner.
  • Your custom stationery represents your business
    That is why it is crucial that your stationery is printed and designed well. It must feature your logo as well as your company’s colours. Avoid going too “multi-coloured”. Contrast a very colourful logo with clean lines and neutral fonts. Always choose a maximum of two fonts and ensure it is easy to read by making it uncluttered and not too small.
  • Stationery shows dedication
    If you present everything on good stationery featuring your brand’s identity, it shows that you are dedicated to your brand and care about the information in your document. It shows that you put some effort into the document you are sending and that your business is legitimate. A quotation on a good letterhead sends a better message than one that was handwritten from a carbon book.

Have your stationery designed and printed with Minuteman Press in Roodepoort. As one of the top printing companies in Johannesburg, we are all about assisting businesses and individuals with all their printing needs, including branded business stationery, stamps, brochures and booklets.

Important Information to Display on your Company Letterhead

October 23, 2016

Letterheads have certain requirements in South Africa. While the design and the quality of paper they are printed on are important, any leading printing company in Roodepoort should be able to advise you on the necessities for letterhead printing, which are simple and vary depending on your business. Here are some of the requirements to place on your letterheads.

If you are a sole trader, you can trade under your own name or you can choose a different business name. If you choose a business name that is not your own name, you must include your own name and the business address on all letterheads and order forms.

If you are a partnership business, your letterheads, order forms, receipts and even invoices must include the names of all partners and the address of the main office. If there are many partners, then it is also acceptable to state where a list of partners may be found.

If your company is trading as a limited company, the letterhead and order form stationery must include:

  • The full registered company name
  • The company registration number and place of registration,
  • The company registered address
  • The address of its place of business (if different)

There is no need to include the names of the directors on the letterhead for a limited company, but be aware if you choose to name a director you must name all of them. It is also sensible to include all your generic company contact information such as a telephone and fax number, a URL for the website and an email address.

Make your business stand out with every letterhead you send. Separating yourself from your competitors and create brand recognition by personalizing your business letterheads with your logo with full colour printing or black and white copies. Minuteman Press in Roodepoort part of is able to support you with all your letterhead needs, from graphic design services from our on-site graphic designer team to selecting the proper print technology.

The dos and don’ts of colour printing for your business

September 24, 2016

When you print colour copies for your business you are able to reach more clients using expert, first-class materials. The list of print media that comes to life with colour is practically infinite. From brochures to letterheads, posters to personalised stationery, colour copies add that extra special touch to an otherwise boring page. Using colour makes print media more eye-catching or attractive, and provides clients and employees with a dynamic display, enabling a lasting imprint and successful communication of your business goals.

When enlisting in professional printing services, here are some dos and don’ts to keep in mind:

  • Do print a trail or sample before producing mass designs. Make sure your final design is perfect beforehand.
  • Do use colour on important messages so that they stand out. Reader comprehension increases when the information stands out.
  • Do ask about output resolution and print quality if you are on a budget. Higher quality prints may be slightly more expensive.
  • Do decide if you are in need double-sided copies or single-sided colour copies, this may affect the paper you are printing on.
  • Do check where your fold will be. Ideally you do not want your message to be obscured by a fold in the paper.
  • Don’t set your work all of the way to the edge of the paper. Print margins can be different to your design margins.
  • Don’t use extremely bright colours and high hues, as they may irritate the eye, making it difficult for people to read the information.
  • Don’t do it on your own. Make use of experienced graphic design services to give you that professional touch.

Minuteman Press is able to reproduce high quality colour copies at a low cost. All you need is your original templates. For professional printing services and quality advice contact Minuteman Press Roodepoort.
