Literature and brochure design services

Never underestimate the power of tactile marketing.

Sometimes a website landing page, or an email newsletter, or posting on social media, just isn’t enough.

Despite the snowballing development of digital communications, there’s still a place for the humble print product – in fact, less of the humble, we say!

Printed brochures and campaign collateral can be an excellent way of cutting through the noise of the digital ecosystem.

Amid the clamour for page views, unique visitors, open rates, click-through rates, followers and any other digital KPI you can think of, there are times when picking something up, looking at pictures, having a read and turning over the page is exactly what a business, product or service needs. Never underestimate the power of tactile marketing – fulfilling the most basic of human needs; to touch something.

Brochure design to ensure you truly stand out

Our highly creative brochure and printed literature design and production services will ensure your company, solution or product truly stands out.

If it can be printed, we can design and produce it – from concept to completion. And whilst we specialise in printed brochures and literature, we can also combine old school and new school with dynamic, interactive digital publications too.

Print provides an opportunity to create an impact via design that will make a fabulous first impression to your clients while enhancing your company profile, services and reputation.

Marketing and business experts believe that the internet and digital devices are the only effective methods to reach their customers today, particularly millennials; but nothing could be further from the truth. Tactile marketing still works, especially when leveraged successfully.

Tactile marketing channels

Printed newsletters

These are great for building relationships with leads as well as existing customers. They are often the most overlooked opportunity to build a relationship, but they are also one of the easiest. And they are great for waiting room and reception areas, keeping your visitors and customers abreast of company news, events and sales promotions.

Event marketing

If your business or organisation is hosting an event, send personalised invites to your customer database. It’s personable and keeps you front of mind.

Direct mail

Sending your customers printed information is another great touchpoint, especially for loyalty marketing.  Who doesn’t like a discount code, or a loyalty voucher?


Before the retail industry changed drastically, a catalogue was the best way to reach customers. Catalogues still have a part to play – the best example being one of our large manufacturing clients that combines web and catalogue – the latter proving invaluable to tradesmen who can look for the products and accessories they need whilst on-site.

Don’t forget birthdays and Christmas

Show your customers you know them and keep them close with a festive greeting. In fact, an advent calendar has the potential to keep your brand in mind for at least 24 days!
