Invest in quality Business Cards
Having business cards are essential for any start-up business – they are able to give your customers a quick overview of what you can do for them. In my option, I would keep the design of these as simple as possible and keep the main information for your set of flyers.
Our business cards come in a range of stocks too including: Gloss, Matt, Spot UV and Soft touch, I highly recommend the soft touch! Remember, your business card says a lot about your business – you do not want to go for the cheapest option on flimsy business cards – look at the GSM you are offered and the method of printing used, after all, you want to make a lasting impression, right?

Use Compliment Slips / Letterheads
Whenever you send something out in the post to clients, make sure you use compliment slips! This adds to your branding of the business, and makes your delivery look a lot more professional. It can also add a personal touch to your clients order which is key to repeat business.
The same goes for letterheads – if you have a professional printed letterhead you are able to give your clients the impression that you value your business and are not some cowboy from off the street. It is best practice to start sending the little things at an early stage of your business.

Go mad on flyers
Flyers are one of the most important pieces of printing materials you will ever purchase. They are able to put information directly into the hands of your clients. Give out flyers EVERYWHERE you possibly can – trade shows, in packaging, on leaflet stands and even in leave a few in the public toilets! They are essential for getting the word out there. Make sure you utilize the space carefully – do not clog them with boring content.
