Are you passionate about your business but struggling to tell others about it? Are there too many things on your ‘to do’ list?
If you want others to see your business and your values in the same way that you do, you need to be in control of the design and printing of your company brochures. It makes sense that you want to present your business faster and better than your competition, and so trusted and flexible in-house capabilities – and the skills and confidence to use them – is paramount.
Perhaps you have tried designing and printing your own brochures before? If so, great, because it means you have already realised the value of this. How did that work out for you? If it was a fantastic success then you probably wouldn’t be reading this post. Seeing as you are (you are, aren’t you?) then it’s likely you have real passion for your business but lack some of the skills and equipment.
What’s stopping you from getting it done?
Most businesses struggle to balance their core activities, services or products with the ever-changing markets, legislation, and customer aspirations. Trouble is, you cannot stop juggling. Something always starts to drift away from you if you do not own it.
Brochures are often the first face that potential customers see and, hopefully, remember. They are so important in establishing, stabilising, and expanding your business. While they are not your core business, they do support and help you grow. What’s more, they are a very cost-effective solution, particularly if you can design and print them in-house.
Duplo International offers solutions to help you access and ultimately master your in-house brochure design and printing needs. Imagine the dazzling opportunities that could come from learning how to design and print your own brochures? Full control, full command.
Will there be more ‘techy’ stuff to learn?
Well, yes. But not too much. And this time you get to see the results on site, on time and with the freedom to change anything, if you need to. If you spot an error (we are all human, after all) you can fix it, print it instantly and move on to the next project. What’s more, there’s lots of helpful advice and guidance online, like Nial Toner’s article on Digital Printing.
If you’re going to take the time to learn how to expertly design and print your own brochures, you want to be sure that they’ll be good enough not to end up in someone’s ‘junk drawer’ or recycling bin. For that to be achieved, you need to have total confidence in what you’re doing.
Is there a long list of things that can go wrong?
Though it can be a little daunting at first, designing and printing your own brochure is simple enough once you have the knowhow, the tools and the dedication. As with anything in life, there are things minor that could go wrong in the beginning, but why should that stop you?
Keep in mind the importance of good branding, white space and the power of proofreading, learn how to use the tools and equipment, and there you have it!
