Hot Off the Press: Urban Craft Uprising, Children’s Cancer Center and More

One of the fantastic things about working at PsPrint is seeing all the creative ways small businesses promote themselves. Don’t get me wrong – PsPrint serves big and little companies alike, but we understand that oftentimes, the smaller the business, the smaller the marketing budget. That’s why, as I see the printing orders come through, I’m always impressed at how savvy our customers can be. From nonprofits to neighborhood mom’n’pops to startups, PsPrint customers follow the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple, Stupid) method and opt for old-fashioned flyer promotions that get their messages into as many people’s hands as possible. As with Victory Burger in PsPrint’s hometown of Oakland, Calif., they crowdfund through sites such as Kickstarter, raising awareness with sticker handouts. And like Creativebug, they let potential customers know of their new companies through postcards and direct mail. If your small business is trying out a new piece of print marketing, please let me know in the Comments below!
