One often overlooked aspect of maintaining a solid brand presence is regularly refreshing your marketing collateral. From direct mail to marketing emails, here are five ways to update your design and keep it fresh.

How do you stand out when so many companies compete for the same customers? One way is through dimensional print. These innovative print pieces go beyond the traditional flat surface, offering tactile and interactive experiences that captivate audiences and drive engagement. From pop-up designs to textured finishes, dimensional print can take your marketing efforts to the next level.

Using recycled paper is essential in moving toward more sustainable printing, but it’s not the only one! For those who want to be friendly to the earth, here are five other ways to incorporate sustainability when designing and ordering print materials.

In today's digital age, it's easy to overlook the enduring impact of print media. While digital marketing offers unparalleled reach and flexibility, there are certain situations where print simply outshines its digital counterparts. Here are five scenarios where print comes out on top.

Whether you're creating an advertisement, a direct mail piece, or website content, compelling marketing copy can capture attention, evoke emotion, and, ultimately, drive sales. To achieve this, marketers often tap into six primary motivators that resonate with consumers deeply and personally. Let's take a look.

Direct mail is a highly effective marketing channel, but many marketing conversations must continue before they bear fruit. Your direct mail piece may prompt someone to visit your website, for example, but they often need another nudge. This is where retargeting comes in. Once a prospect visits your website, you can target them again (retarget them) on social media. This allows you to engage them further and complete the sale.

Where is the most critical area of the direct mail envelope besides the mailing address? The upper left-hand corner. Yes, where you put the return address! How you use this humble section of the envelope can be the deciding factor in whether someone decides to open your envelope or not.

Some packages are just fun to open. Regardless of the product inside, the experience of just opening the box is exciting and makes us feel special. We know brands that are masters at this. Apple. Ulta. Glossier. These companies have mastered the art of “the unboxing experience.”

Customer churn is part of the business for even the most successful companies. New customers come, and some customers go. The question isn’t how to stop customer churn. It’s how to reduce it. What are some of the ways you can keep churn to a minimum? Here are four steps to get you started.

We hear a lot about personalized printing—addressing recipients by name and tailoring the content based on what you know about them. This approach takes additional time and expense, including refining and analyzing marketing databases, creating customer profiles, and developing messaging for personalized communications. Does it make a difference?
