Show customers what you've got with booklet printing

July 24, 2019

Booklet printing is a powerful way to market your products and services with a strong presentation that differentiates your business from competitors and impresses customers. The following lists ways you can show customers what you’ve got with booklet printing.

1. Booklet printing puts a spotlight on your business

When competitors are spamming with email, you can make your business stands out with high-quality booklets that get noticed and foster favorable brand impressions. Presentation is everything, and it’s tough to top booklets. Booklets feature:

  • large, full-color cover designs that command attention
  • multiple pages, so you have ample room to create desire with beautiful photos and explanatory copy
  • a handheld, tangible quality that personalizes your marketing

2. Booklets make beautiful catalogs

If you’re looking for a direct-mailer that can’t be ignored, booklets are the answer. Start with a creative cover design that motivates customers to flip through your pages. Then, showcase your products with large images, descriptive text, comparison charts and even editorial pieces that position your products as the solutions to your customers’ problems.

Print perfect bind booklets to lend a premium aesthetic to your catalogs. Their bound edges suggest quality, and customers equate the quality of your marketing tools with the quality of your products. Or, save money with standard saddle-stitched booklet printing.

Either way, you can opt for a thick, full-color cover stock that stands out and feels amazing in the hands. Favorites include 100 lb. gloss cover, 13-point matte cover and 15-point velvet with soft-touch coating.

3. Booklets foster trust and establish authority

You can print magazine-style booklets or guides that foster trust and establish your authority. Pack your booklets with useful, value-added articles your audience can use to solve problems and enhance their lives.

Your booklet content doesn’t need to be complicated. For example, a grocery store might print booklets that feature summer grilling tips and recipes. Or, a hair salon might print booklets filled with beauty and hairstyling tips. In each case, you can pepper your copy with product and service recommendations.

When you give your customers honest advice, they’ll trust your recommendations when they’re ready to buy. Of course, you can motivate quick sales with a page of time-limited coupon codes!

4. Booklets are easy to place in customers’ hands

You have plenty of options for booklet distribution. They make fantastic direct-mailers when you send them to a well-targeted audience. They can serve as leave-behinds after sales meetings. If you operate a service business, leave booklets on tables or racks in your lobby. Or, place them on kiosks and counters in grocery stores, libraries, and public locations.

Hand booklets out at trade shows and other events or send them directly to potential customers who fill out your online information request forms. If your booklets feature valuable information, it’s also likely customers will share them for powerful word-of-mouth marketing.
