The benefits of Print Advertising

by Admin 22. June 2010 01:50

Advertising comes in many forms from billboard and television commercials to newspaper and web ads. Print advertising is the term used for any type of advertising on physical paper. Newspaper or magazine ads, brochures, flyers, newsletters, postcards, and booklets are all considered print advertising. Even business cards, promotional folders, and any other imprinted business literature are advertising material because all contain company information and are distributed to clients.

Printed marketing tools still need to be major part of any advertising campaign for several reasons.

Canvas View

Readers are able to glance quickly at print ads in one view. Headers and subheaders in this canvas view allow for easy skimming of information on paper.

Easy to Read

Many people simply react better to physical ads. They enjoy the feel of paper in their hands, the ability to see it all in one glance. Reading online can be more difficult and provide for a shorter attention span, which means that web ads must say it all in even a smaller amount of words than print ads.


Another reason that print ads are so vital is they can include graphics alongside the text allowing the reader to reference the image while reading. Many web advertisements must be scrolled to view both the picture and text, which can cause disinterest.

While setting aside part of the marketing budget for online ads is important, most companies still need to produce printed marketing campaigns for the best results. Even online businesses could benefit from print advertising because of the ability to reach clients who may never be exposed to the company page when online. The bottom line: the more avenues of advertising a company uses, the better the results. So continue mailing those postcards alongside posting those online ads and see why advertising is so important for business.

This is still my favourite print advertisement:

Small screen, small movie

Funny Print Ads that will Make You Laugh

by Admin 17. June 2010 05:09

In the world of print advertising, there’s a small window to grab the audience’s attention. Being restricted to a still image means the message must be very strong and catchy. Ad agencies often rely on humor to achieve this. A humorous print ad campaign starts with a funny idea, but must be brought to life with clever art direction and great visuals.

For this post, we’ve rounded up 7 funny print ads that’ll make you laugh.

8in1 Dental Snacks: Bad dog breath

 Rowenta: 2100 Watt Vacuum cleaner 

 Duende Azul Costumes: You, but funnier than you


Juicy Fruit: There's a much juicier chew

Hyundai Coupe. 0 to 100km/h in 8.4 sec

Dog Toast: You eat what you touch

Wide-angle lenses

Graphic Design Soccer Fever

by Admin 15. June 2010 08:53

Our valued clients HDK Properties went all out for the soccer world cup and we designed their flyers and promotional magnets with just this in mind.

With the FIFA match schedule displayed at the back of their flyer they will be sure clients hang onto their message. The magnets in the shape of a soccer ball is also a great way to let their name stick in the industry.
