With all the competition in every single industry today, it’s important for business owners to practice every available channel to market their products and services as best as they can. While digital means are a popular choice among many brands, there is still something about the printed word that makes it easier for consumers to grasp ideas and consider availing of products and services.
From brochures, catalogues, postcards, newsletters, and much more, direct mail campaigns offer a wide selection of printed material with the main goal of raking in new potential customers. When you print materials, however, you want to make sure that they make a real impact and don’t just end up as trash bin fillers. If you’re looking to get successful results from your direct mail campaign, these five simple tips from Ottawa Print should get you started.
A lot of business make the mistake of forgetting to put important information such as their company name and contact information. Without a call-to-action, your readers might just end up throwing away your direct mail campaign. Make sure you put the right information on an easy-to-see area of your print. Either readers will contact you right away, or keep your print for future reference.
Your brand identity relies on how well you’re able to incorporate your logo and colours into your prints. By using your logo and company colours in an appealing way, consumers will be more likely to recognize your brand which not only improve trust, but can also increase sales in the future.
Of course, you probably decided to hand out printed materials to draw attention to a promotion or campaign. Make sure readers understand exactly what you’re offering so they’re not left clueless as to why they took your brochures in the first place.
A lot of consumers will be deterred by your campaign if it doesn’t offer clear-cut guidelines on how to avail of the promotion. Ensure to include easy-to-understand instructions so consumers can easily redeem your promotion.
Handing out poorly printed designs might jeopardize the purpose of your prints, so it’s best to make sure your direct mail campaign is produced by a well-trusted and high-quality printing service like Ottawa Print.
Thanks very much, we just received the order and the business cards look very professional, and my bosses are happy with the result.
I just wanted to say thanks to the team for doing such a great job on the backdrop!
You guys are great, thanks !
I had called the number to speak to somebody about getting some cards done and the gentlemen who answered was very kind, patient and helpful. Not too sure what his name was but he walked me through the process and was very pleasant to speak with. My business cards have arrived and I cannot express in words how pleased I am with them. From online order to my door in a week. Just placed a second order to have my vertical ones done for my Macramé pieces. What a fantastic experience. :)

Thank you so much for your services OttawaPrint.com, for our agency! It is so handy to have a local company that can create our business cards and printed needs so well and in a timely manner. We love the online ordering system that makes it so simple.
Thank you for the banner!
I just received my very first order that I placed with you, and wanted to let you know that I am extremely happy with the final product. Being a graphic designer, I have worked with many local printers, and I tend to be very picky, but your service is perfect. It is trimmed properly, the colours look great, and the spot varnish is very precise. On top of that it arrived at my door a day earlier than estimated! I was a little hesitant to place the order at first because I could not believe that I can get 18pt thick cards with a matte lamination at such a competitive price, but I'm so happy with the purchase that my next printing job is already in the works. I will definitely be recommending your services to all my clients. Thank you very much for a great customer experience.
THANK YOU – THANK YOU – THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!
