Four Ways to Make Your Trade Show Booth a Memorrable Experience

Samantha Weber April 13, 2018 Tags: , , , , Printing

With so many companies vying for the attention of potential clients and customers, it’s easy to blend in. At Bellia Print & Design we can help you with eye-catching signage and standout promotional materials, but once you have your customers inside, you’ll want to make it a memorable experience. Here’s what you can do:

Engage with people. Find out how their day is going, where they are from, what the highlights of the tradeshow have been for them so far, etc. Not only will the interaction warm people up, but you’ll get inside info on what your competitors are doing to win them over.
Provide refreshments. They’ve been walking around from vendor to vendor. Most likely they will appreciate a drink and/or something to eat. Setting up a small table with coffee, tea, water and snacks is easy and crowd pleasing.
Set up a fun photo booth. Everyone can use a little fun. Include some funny props, and make sure to have them hold up signage with your company hashtag to make the rounds on social media.
Give away swag. A good promotional piece goes a long way. Make sure yours is branded with your company logo in a spot that can’t be missed.

We’d love to help you with your tradeshow materials. Bellia Print & Design offers high quality trade show materials such as architectural signage, modular displays, posters, custom printed retractable banners, as well as custom printed marketing materials, that will truly reflect your brand. Tradeshow graphics can be used beyond the convention as well. Our design team can create unique, eye-catching graphics for your displays or you can send us your own artwork.

How to Grab Attention with a Poster

Samantha Weber February 3, 2018 Tags: , , , , Printing

Posters are a great marketing tool, especially for small businesses that are promoting a special, or an event. Not only are they cost-effective, but they have flexibility in terms of size and shape to fit your desired location.

Here’s how to grab people’s attention with one:

Use sharp graphics and bold colors. The design is what will first draw people in.

Use a catchy headline.  Make people want to take a couple of seconds to find out more.

But keep it simple. Don’t overload with text. When people are sitting at a traffic stop and see the poster on the sidewalk, they’ll need enough time to make sense of the info.

Place in high-traffic areas. Depending on your audience, you’ll want to post at places such as busy intersections, as well as library, community center, gym and supermarket bulletin boards where permitted.

With various size and paper stock options to choose from, and a graphic design team available to get your ideas on paper, Bellia Print & Design is here to help you design the perfect poster. For more information visit here.

Choosing a Wedding Theme

Thinking about a wedding theme? If you are overwhelmed by all of the decisions you have to make, having a theme will help to narrow down your choices such as cake, flowers, décor, and stationery, to name a few.

Don’t know where to begin? Here are some starters:

Have your wedding reflect your style. Are you more bohemian, traditional, modern, etc?

Do you already have a dress?  Is it trendy or classic? Does it have lace, a pattern, or some sparkle to it? These details can be incorporated into other areas of your wedding.

Do you and your fiancé have mutual interests or hobbies? Do you both like to travel, read, have a favorite movie, or are you big sports fans? Pick a favorite, and the ideas will just start to flow. 

Base your theme on the season. If you are interested in colors for a theme, the season your wedding is taking place is a great inspiration. 

Location. You can base the theme according to where your wedding is taking place. For example, if you are having a destination wedding on an island, you’ll probably want a tropical theme, and if it’s taking place somewhere more rural, you can go with rustic.  

At Bellia Print + Design, we have a dedicated design team that can create the perfect stationery to match your theme. With many different paper options, we can create beautiful and unique pieces, including invitations, announcements, rsvp cards, menus, custom envelopes and more for your special day.

Reasons to Carry a Business Card

Business cards are an essential part of your marketing arsenal. A unique one will make you and your business stand out. Here are more reasons why you need one:

For networking. Going to an event, party, or gathering where there will be new faces? By handing out your business card, you can easily market yourself to potential clients and customers with little effort.

As a convenient way to exchange info.  While mostly everyone carries a smart phone, not everyone stores their business contacts in it, or wants to take it out and start inputting info. A business card has everything your new contact needs in one place.

For a professional look. A quality business card shows you care about the details, important when it comes to attracting new customers and clients.

To show your personal brand. You can personalize your business card so it’s a reflection of you and your business. And we can help!

Bellia offers a wide variety of durable stock paper and finishes to choose from for your custom business cards. We have a talented graphic design team available that can create a unique card for you that reflects your brand and image.
