Attention Span stats are out and your print advertising, whether it's business cards or brochures, has about five seconds to impress potential customers. But cramming too many words, font types and images in a small space makes this nearly impossible, especially when competing with a reader's more important obligations.
My Collateral Design & Copywriting process combines vibrant colors, print-ready images and to-the-point headlines into eye-catching advertising. You get a compelling marketing tool that encourages readers to seek out your Website, physical store or event, instead of the nearest trash can.
As shown - 2" x 3.5" horizontal, full-color, high gloss UV / matte finish, rounded corners, 100 cards $30 delivered (not including one-time design & layout fee)
Marketing collateral is the printed material you pass out to inform potential customers about your business. Basically anything with your company logo on it. Even in a digital communication age there's no substitute for the tactile feel of business cards and brochures, which deliver your message without pop-ups or animations.
Your message has challenges to overcome, like the every day obligations in a reader's life - if you deliver something overwhelming or confusing, they'll throw it away. To increase your collateral potential, I design attention-grabbing and readable advertising that has a greater chance of surviving the trash can.
The DIY in you hopes to turn some text and images into the ultimate sales-generating flyer or brochure. If it was that easy though, thousands of advertising agencies would close their doors, permanently.
Give me your copy and I'll handle the creative stuff (graphic design and page layout) so you can focus on managing your business.
From business cards to brochures, roll labels to T-shirts, I can help you bring awareness to your brand.
Design, printing and delivery - all from one place!
Thanks for asking! Each unique card design is $65, which is a one-time fee - when re-ordering the same card, you only pay the printing and delivery fees.
The few times I get push-back regarding this fee is because the person asking ("why so much?") doesn't realize quite a bit of creative work goes into even business card design. No graphic artist will work an hour or more on print advertising (something distributed to generate revenue) for just the price of the paper. Someone like me has to create 2 unique files per card (front & back) that won't get rejected by the print shop for typical DIY issues:
Just one sale from your first business card order is a huge return on such a minimal investment (design, layout, paper quality, printing).
Delivery of print materials can be 5 - 10 business days after approval of the design. Depending on the print item (business cards, brochures, booklets, t-shirts, etc.) times can vary - booklets for example, will take longer than business cards because of the additional folding and binding process.
I always suggest planning a month ahead for any print project.
I do not print, but I have a partnership with a trade-only print shop, which allows me to pass on significant savings to my clients. For example, 100 full-color business cards with gloss UV coating is almost 20% less than non-trade printers like Vista Print. No overhead and no TV advertising to pay for!
