In a word, yes! Even in this digital age, the role that product catalogues play in marketing cannot be overlooked. Product catalogues give your business a chance to make known to the public the products or services you deal in, and their features. However, it’s not just a matter of bundling products and their descriptions in a cheap booklet and presenting them to your target audience.
Twenty five years ago, printed media was the main channel through which companies reached their target market. Today however, print is just one crucial part of a complex ecosystem; hence the need for businesses to use more effective catalogue printing strategies.
Using a print management company can save you time, save you money and help you get a better ROI from your catalogues. The term ‘print management’ can mean different things in some sectors, so it is worth looking at what we mean by the phrase in this case – before exploring the main benefits of the service.
Catalogues are still a major sales tool for many sectors even in this digital age. Just ask Argos why they go to the bother of printing millions of their very thick expensive catalogues, or any auction house, wholesaler, supermarket chain and many more. Having said that, every business wants to ensure that they get full value for their design and print spend through producing an effective catalogue that sells. This is why they engage professionals with the specific skills and know-how to convert images and words on the catalogue pages into an irresistible “buy me” message in the mind of the consumer.
Many businesses design their catalogues in house while others prefer to use a third party for some or all of the process. This may simply be for extra assistance with graphics, copywriting or editing – or it may be an end-to-end design service. If you use a catalogue design company, how can you be sure you are getting the best value service, and when should you consider shopping around for another provider?
Catalogues always have a delivery deadline! We are very aware of this and therefore we offer an ultra-fast turnaround printing service. From our wide experience of jobs that went extremely smoothly and those that had some “jagged edges” that caused the process to groan a little, we know what the important aspects are to ensure a fast and streamlined print run to get them on your doorstep in lightning fast time.
