Samantha Weber August 11, 2017 Tags: , , , , , , , Printing

Throwing a party? Whether it’s a birthday, retirement, baby shower, housewarming, or religious celebration, get the word out with a printed invitation. In today’s digital world, receiving a handheld invitation is a rare occurrence, making recipients feel they are being invited to a special event.

Here are some reasons why we love printed invitations:

·       The invitation can be displayed (tacked to the fridge, bulletin board, etc.) and serve as a visual reminder of the fun to come

·       The invites will reach their intended recipient. Throwing a party for children?  They will be so excited to open mail addressed to them!

·       You won’t have to question whether or not your invite got sent to the SPAM folder

·       With so many custom options in creating an invitation, from the theme to the design to the font, the thought you put into your invite is an indication that there was significant thought put into planning your upcoming party

·       Paper invites are so much fun, and help to set the tone of your event

With our high quality paper stock options and professional design, you can get really creative with your custom invitation.  Our graphic design team is excited to help you come up with a unique design for your big day!

Are you thinking about putting together a direct mail marketing campaign?

Here are 3 reasons why you should:

Direct Mail is sent to carefully targeted prospects and/or customers.  Your mailing will only be sent to people who are likely to be interested in your product or service.

Direct Mail can be personalized. When potential customers see their personal information on a mailing piece, they are more likely to become engaged.

Direct Mail is likely to be seen.  USPS says that 98% of people bring in their mail each day.

Here’s how Bellia Print & Design can help with your campaign:

  • We have a talented graphic design team who can help design a stand-out marketing piece.
  • With our variable data printing service, we have the ability to customize each piece for your customers.

The small gesture of a handwritten thank you can go a long way. These personalized notes can help build relationships with new customers, and let loyal ones know how much you appreciate their business.

Thank you notes can be kept short and sweet – just a few sentences long. Only taking a minute or two to write, they’re also an easy way to brighten your recipient’s day. If you have an upcoming promotion or event, or a coupon, it’s a great idea to include that with the thank you.

When to send a thank you note:

 After an event

 After a purchase

 After a meeting

 After a referral

 Just for being a loyal customer

We have a talented graphic design team at Bellia Print & Design who can help you personalize your thank you notes. Using your logo and special message to create custom business stationery is an effective way to spread your brand identity and leave a lasting impression with your customers!

Wedding Programs

While wedding programs are completely optional, they are a nice way of keeping your guests in the know, telling them what to expect, and allowing them to follow along during the ceremony. Plus they make excellent reading material as your guests wait for the ceremony to begin.

Your wedding program can be as formal or informal as you like, depending on the type of wedding you are having.  The order of information should follow the timeline of the ceremony, and all programs should at least include the name of the couple, wedding date and location.

Keep your program simple on a single card by just including an itinerary, names of those in the wedding party, and titles of readings and musical pieces/songs.

Or fill the pages with your love story, a message to guests thanking them for being with you on your special day, and honoring those who are not. You can also add pictures, explain religious and/or cultural traditions, and share the relationships between you and your bridesmaids and groomsmen.

Have fun with your program and be as creative as you’d like! Bellia Print + Design has many different paper options, and an excellent graphic design team that will help you tailor your program to your wedding.

Stickers are not just for child’s play! They can be used as a cost-effective marketing tool, offering much versatility, while creating brand awareness.  Here are some ideas on how you can incorporate stickers into your marketing efforts:

Product Packaging: Use a sticker as an information source to give the details/instructions about your product. Or include your store name and info on a sticker, and turn a plain paper bag into a decorative one for your customers’ purchases.

Handouts at Events: People love free swag, and stickers are fun! Especially if it has a creative, bright design.  This is an easy way to get your company info out there.

Name Badges: If your company has a big conference coming up, and you don’t want to deal with safety pins or lanyards, go with the classic sticker badge.

With Purchase: When a customer purchases an item, add a sticker in their bag that features the company’s information. Once they realize how much they love their purchase, they just might pass the sticker on to a friend.

General Marketing:  Include your company name, website, and phone number on the sticker.  Put them in visible spots such as your briefcase, or hand them out to passerby and see where they end up.

Don’t worry about coming up with a design– Bellia Print & Design has a talented graphic design team that can create a unique sticker for you!

Are you making the rounds at craft shows and art fairs this season? Stand out from the crowds with a bold, creative and inviting booth. Here are some things you can do to attract customers when it comes to setting up that stand:

Hang an awesome banner: Make it pop with bold colors and creative imagery to intrigue potential customers enough that they want to come over and see what’s inside. Display your banner in a spot where it can be easily seen.

Use a backdrop: With a custom backdrop you can make your customers feel like they are at a quaint boutique, instead of at a festival with hundreds of other vendors and a huge crowd.

Provide business cards: Art fairs and craft shows are busy, and people may get distracted. Keep a stack of business cards on the table where they are easily accessible. Make sure to include a website, so the  potential customer can check out your offerings at a later time.

Have brochures readily available: People may want to know your background and/or information about your items. If you are busy with other customers, your brochure may answer their questions and help them decide if they’d like to buy.

Display signage: Make it easy for the customer to know what they are looking at and what the price is with clear, custom signage.

At Bellia Print & Design we have a fantastic team of experienced graphic designers who can help you create unified branding and a great design to bring the most customers into your booth.

Effective Postcard Design Tips

Effective postcard design is more important than even the printing of the postcard. Postcards can have many roles, from opening announcements, to appointment reminders, to new product announcements, to business information.  With no envelope to open, postcards are often seen by the intended recipient.

Here are some postcard design tips:

  • Fill one side with bright, bold, colorful graphics and/or photos to stand out from the barrage of mail your customers receive daily.
  • Keep it simple. There’s not too much room on a postcard so keep your message short and to the point.
  • Include a call to action. This could be as easy as asking customers to head to your website.
  • Include the link to your website, contact information, company name and logo

With various types of card stock, sizes and finishing options you can transform the look and feel of your postcard, and customize it to your needs.  If you are looking to place a small order – that’s no problem! Our professional graphic artists are here to help bring any vision to life with a bold, impressive postcard design.
