Leaflets, notices and posters


Leaflets , Notices & Posters

Paper choice plays an important part in bringing to life your posters, notices and leaflets. If you're not sure where to begin, here's a little guidance to get you started.

Things to keep in mind:

  •  How long will your documents be in use? Is it a short term, throw away booklet or a long term brochure which must work for you, month in and month out, until an update is produced?
  •  If you want to personalise the communication, you need to consider digital print. This enables you to put, for example, individual names on the front or have a different message for a specific group of targeted customers.
  •  If your communication is going to contain lots of coloured images, the type of paper you use will make a difference as to how good it looks when printed. Gloss papers will give the best results, but if you want to be a little more creative then silk or even uncoated papers will deliver some outstanding results.
  •  Conversely, if the leaflet includes lots of information, then you need to keep in mind how easy it will be to read. In this instance, less glossy papers are a better option.
  •  How you finish your leaflet, notice or poster will help it to stand out and incorporating a varnish on the front and/or inside pages, foil blocking or embossing could make a big difference to the way people perceive your company. If the content and messages are important to you, then it is well worth the additional cost of incorporating one or more of these finishes.
  •  Cost should also be factored in, to help you decide if you are producing a premium, designer or mass market communication and you can then plan its content, print and finish to suit the product and your budget.
  •  If you are planning to post your communication, then you need to keep in mind weight and dimensions of the envelope, as size, thickness and weight will impact on the cost of postage.
  •  Where environmental credentials are important to you, a variety of paper options are available to help you meet this need.
