“Everything that you ever wanted to know about litho printing services …”

It’s probably no exaggeration to say that the invention of the printing press was one of the most important inventions in history, making it possible for books, newspapers, journals, and all varieties of reading materials to be produced quickly and in great numbers – promoting literacy throughout the world and providing incalculable pleasure to an…

“The pen is mightier than the sword …”

So wrote the English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839 in his play Richelieu; Or The Conspiracy, perhaps building on Napoleon Bonaparte’s quote: Il n’y a que deux puissances au monde, le sabre et l’esprit : à la longue, le sabre est toujours vaincu par l’esprit … which translates as “There are only two powers in the…

The importance of getting your point of sale material right

Retailers face numerous challenges – declining margins, stiff competition, rising staff costs, increasing rents, knowing what to stock and when, shrinkage, getting the pricing right, on-line issues, dealing with multi-channels, escalating consumer demands … the list goes on and on.

The Effectiveness Of Database Driven Marketing

Let’s start by considering what it actually is.  Essentially, it’s a highly effective method of targeted marketing to existing and/or potential clients.  Effective because each campaign is tailored to the recipients in terms of content and timing, and is often part of a phased programme leading to a specific “event” or deadline.  The delivery method…

Net Promoter Score

The Holy Grail …  We’ve all experienced it, good and bad.  We’ve all talked about it (especially when it was bad).  Customer satisfaction, where it begins and where it ends.  Not just because ultimately our customers pay our bills, and pay for us, but because it’s absolutely and fundamentally obvious – if we treat our…

The value of promotional gifts

Do they work? Most of us have done it.  Been to an event or an exhibition or a hotel or a conference and picked up or been given small gifts – pens, folders, cups, t-shirts, bags – the list of possibilities is a long one. But why?  Most of us already have enough pens, folders,…

Print for Education

Does anyone read manuals any more? That question was a bit tongue-in-cheek, but I’m sure we’ve all bought a new fancy electronic device at some point and tried to make it work without reading the manual.  Males of our species are allegedly even “worse” at this than females.  One wonders how many clock/timers on DVD…

The importance of superb brochure design

Promoting yourself properly – “brand awareness” It’s the Holy Grail (of publicity) isn’t it?  To project the right image, to the right people, who want to buy your products and services.  And since people began thinking about such things, they’ve been asking themselves the simple question – how? The marketers tell us we need a…
