Why Choose Vinyl Banner?

You should have no doubts in your mind regarding the importance of promoting yourself and the issues you stand for. This is where vinyl banners can work best for your campaign. You can install them indoor or outdoor and they would definitely create a positive impression in the minds of the voters. Vinyl banners are better than posters (which most other candidates are likely to use) as they are big inside and grab attention from a distance. Once voters get closer to them they deliver your message in a powerful way. If you are creative with your banners, it will speak to the voters from the walls and alleys.

Install Banners Everywhere

Online printing allows you to get your banners printed at highly competitive prices. Thus you will be able to get lots of banners printed for your campaign. Ideally you should choose a mix of small and large banners depending on the places you plan to install them. Choose areas in the school that sees large amounts of footfall and install your banners there, only after you have obtained necessary permissions.  Identify the most advantageous spots along with your supporters and you will see the difference it makes.

Three Things You Must Know About Saddle-Stitched Book Printing

Do you know what is imposition or reader spreads? If you are placing an order for book printing for the very first time, you may find yourself lost in several terms and lingos. We at PrintPapa are used to seeing blank looks on our customers’ faces or hear long pauses on the phone line when such terms are mentioned.  But if you are planning to order for custom book printing you need to be aware of some of the basic terms for saddle-stitched books (which you are likely to order). As a book printing company that believes in educating customers, here we have listed three things that you must know about saddle-stitched book printing.

  • Reader Spreads – This is something every customer needs to be aware of. In simple words this allows you to visualize the layout of the book once it is printed and bound. Adjacent pages may not be printed side by side in an offset printer but the need to appear in the order once the book is bound. It helps us with the next term on our list.
  • Printer Spreads – If reader spreads is about how you’d visualize the book and how the layout should be once it is printed the Printer Spreads allows us to arrange pages in your book for them to appear side by side. Depending on the pages in your book printing order, we shall arrange the pages in the pre-press stage.
  • Imposition – This is a process of page arrangement we undertake prior to the printing process. This is done to ensure once the pages are printed, folded, bound and trimmed they appear in proper order.  While this may seem confusing to you, this is done to speed up the printing process and also ease the binding process.

There are dozens of more terms that you’d need to know to get your book printed. Just kidding! As your chosen online printing services partner we’d print the best books and booklets for you irrespective of how much you know about the lingo used. When you come to us with a need, we translate that into reality.

  • Saddle Stitching – In this binding process the pages are bound using staples in the gutter (book’s fold). This binding option is preferred in case of booklets.
  • Embossing – This is a special treatment that is done to raise a certain portion in the book’s cover. This is usually done to the title of the book to highlight it.

When Do You Need to Choose Flyers over Brochures for your Campaign?

Should you choose a flyer of go for a brochure for your upcoming marketing campaign? Years into online printing business we must admit that many marketers don’t know the difference between them and use these terms interchangeably. Surprisingly even some designers don’t know the difference though they design both the kinds. While flyers are single sheet promotional material, flyers have folds. Flyers can be printed on a single side and brochures are printed on both the sides. Naturally both of these have distinct purposes as far as marketing is concerned. So when should you opt for flyer printing over brochures? Let’s find out –

flyer printing

  • Flyers are cheap to print compared to brochures and hence if you are looking for a mass marketing campaign instead of a targeting one you should opt for them. Whether it is an event announcement or informing people about an upcoming sale or offer flyers would serve you well.
  • When the goal and purpose of the campaign is short-lived flyers serve as a great choice as they are printed in average quality paper and are meant for reading and throwing it away. This isn’t to suggest that flyers aren’t a marketing material that can be retained. In such cases you will need to print them on thicker quality paper.
  • Flyers are mostly used in outdoor promotional purposes where you’d hand them over to people as you come across them. Brochures on the other hand are handed indoors and mostly to potential customers or clients who have shown interest in your products or services.
  • If your campaign is short-lived and the information printed isn’t something that people need to retain flyers would be a better choice instead of wasting your money in brochure printing. Flyer printing online is highly affordable and you can print them in thousands at one go.

5 Ways to Attract Customers to Your Signage

Investing in a new signage, even if it is a temporary one, should be done categorically and thoughtfully. At PrintPapa we often come across clients who want custom sign printing but are vague with their ideas or do not know how to design their signs properly. After so many years in the business we definitely have a clear idea about signage printing and what are the things that can easily catch your customer’s attention.

sign printing online

  1. Emphasis on Logo – Whether you are redesigning your logo or creating a new one, it should be attractive enough to catch everyone’s attention. It is also important to strategically place the logo so that the brand association remains for long.
  2. Right Placement of A New Signage – As important it is to have an attractively designed sign for your store’s frontage, it is equally important to rightly place it. You cannot place it where it is hardly seen.
  3. Adhering to Design Aesthetics – It is important that your design speaks volumes about your brand and everything you want to convey. You must use contrasting colors so that the legible fonts which are evenly spaced can be easily read.
  4. Properly Mounting the Sign – No matter how well designed your sign is, if it isn’t neatly mounted on your window or door, all your efforts can go wasted. It is important that every sign is professionally mounted.
  5. Printed on Quality Materials – Depending on the longevity of the sign you must care to print only on quality materials. If you want the sign to stay for a long time you must print it on very good quality material whereas you may use a lower quality material if the signage is only for a temporary purpose.

Why Custom Printed Gift Boxes Are a Great Marketing Material

Are custom printed boxes worth the money? This is one question that we at PrintPapa often come across from our regular clients and potential ones. Of course you can buy stock boxes for packaging at throwaway rates. But these stock boxes also become throwaway items! As a company that has been in online printing business for more than a decade, we believe custom gift boxes serve as a great marketing material. Here are some reasons why you should go for them –

custom gift boxes

  • Branding – If you are introducing a new product in the market custom gift boxes may serve as a powerful marketing tool. Every customer would want to buy a product that is neatly packed. This portrays the right image of your brand. With custom boxes you will be able to easily rise up in terms of brand recognition.
  • Trust – While books shouldn’t be judged by their cover, products often are! When you pack your products in bespoke gift boxes they immediately strike the right chord with your target customers. They instill a sense of trust and professionalism about your brand allowing you to garner more sales and profit.
  • Product Differentiation – In a competitive market you will need to differentiate your products from others. If you are fighting for shelf space in retail to stand above competition, custom printed boxes let you separate yourself from others. They create a positive impression in the minds of the audience helping you take lead over competition.
  • Brand Recall – As much as branding is important so is brand recall. Will the customer come and choose your product again? It may well depend upon how well your brand is recognized. Good packaging with logo and brand name helps in improving your brand’s ‘recall’ factor and this allows you to create a niche space in the market.
