In order to beat the competition, you need to have your hand in every marketing strategy going. One of the most effective and therefore the most popular, is all to do with large format printing.
We are of course talking about flyers, point of sale, billboards, large signage etc.
The best way to reach a large number of people is by going larger in terms of your marketing, but it also needs to be the best form of marketing for your particular company; what works for one company may not work for another. Commercial printing has to be done properly, and it has to be done professionally, in order to give the right appearance for your business.
When shopping around for the best large scale printing company to meet your needs, you really need to check out what services they provide, the cost of their printing, and of course, testimonials from previous users. If you like what you see, you should then look a little further into what they can offer you specifically, and a lot of the time that comes down to the type of printing they do.
This might not mean too much to you, but two of the most popular forms of printing are RGB vs CMYK. These rather confusing letter groups make up the way in which a company prints your desired marketing strategy, be it billboards or point of sale, for example. RGB is the type of printing that Photoshop uses, and it basically uses the standard, basic colours, which are mixed to create any other type of colour you want – this basically gives you the largest choice of colours. On the other hand, CMYK is a totally professional form of printing, and is only really used by large scale companies. CMYK uses subtractive colours, which gives the most professional appearance for large printed forms; most billboards have use CMYK printing methods.
Sticking to your budget is imperative when it comes to finding the best printing company to use, but it’s important to realize that you get what you put in, so if you are serious about going all-out in your marketing plan, you have to be prepared to spend a little more in the first place.
The type of large printing you’re going for is also a big decision, and you need to think about placement. Having high quality point of sale is a must in a large store, because, as we mentioned before, it gives you that air of professionalism, as though you know exactly what you are doing, and exactly what you are selling – that gives the customer confidence, and pushes them towards making a sale. Even small stores need to look the part, and that is why you should certainly push a good portion of your budget towards marketing, in order to bring in those sales, and make the best profit possible for whatever business you are in – obviously, it’s not advisable to go over the top, but in this day and age, you really do need to speculate to accumulate.
