In many ways, print is the ideal marketing medium: it’s available in both large and small numbers, can be accessed easily, and is engaging, versatile and creative.

Print media has a close relationship with its readers. Indeed, print is often called the ‘me-medium’, as it can become an integral part of its reader’s world. But this relationship extends beyond the initial read-through. Because print is easily put down and picked up, it sticks around in the household or workplace, read again and again by others that come across it.

The key to successful marketing is engagement, drawing your customer in through attention-grabbing content and rewarding them with a worthwhile offer or service.  Print media can now offer quick and simple ways to access digital content using ‘bridging technologies’ such as QR codes, Augmented Reality and near-field communication.
These innovations form a bridge between print media and a brand’s online space, inviting consumer reaction, feedback and purchase. Such innovations increase the effectiveness of print media, as well as enhancing the consumer experience.

Print media can now include ‘markers’ that link the printed medium with digital media.

The Quick Response (QR) code is a small, square code that when scanned with a mobile phone opens a file or links to a website. This file could be a list of train departure times, a music file or a simple Word document.
Augmented reality (AR) creates an imaginary world using printed markers printed media, that, when viewed via a smartphone, open a new world with the brand at its heart, or create scenes in which the brand and the consumer interact.

Data can be pulled from a database or EXCEL spreadsheet. With the highly customizable possibilities, variable-data printing offers mail pieces that are truly relevant to the recipients.
