Don’t be a square! We can cut your cards to any shape using a custom die! We made these promotional cards for Richard’s Rainwater during SXSW, and it was the perfect way to set them apart from all the other people handing out cheapo rectangle flyers. Corners are so dumb, right?

Richard’s Rainwater is an awesome local company based out of Dripping Springs, TX

We’ll tell you right now, the setup for die-cutting is a little bit pricey, so it’s best suited for larger orders (250+ pieces) so you can get plenty of shapely bang for your buck. Got questions? Shoot us a message and let’s see if die-cutting is right for your next project!

– Custom Address Labels
Data Merging recipient addresses for envelopes and postcards

EDDMs are usually large postcards like this one. You can choose routes in your target zip codes, and every house on that route will receive a postcard.

Whether you are mailing an elegant invitation suite, or a simple postcard, let us do the work! All you need to do is send your mailing list, and we’ll do the rest! We do also sell targeted mailing lists, so if you’re interested in doing a mailing campaign to drum up some new business, drop us a line with a little info about your ideal customer and we’ll get you an estimate!

This beautiful invitation suite features six different sized cards nestled in this red pocket folder, with enclosed reply envelope to match the outer envelope.

Promotional magnets are a great way to promote your business and help your brand gain more exposure, because they are functional and people really do use them! Here’s a look at the benefits of using promotional magnets to promote your business or cause:

Ease of Distribution

Magnets are small and portable. They can even be mailed out using Global Printing’s mailing services!  Thats why when it comes to the ease of distributing magnets, not many promotional items can even come close to the convenience promotional magnets provide.
 

Functional, Highly Visible and Durable

When a promotional magnet is used on the fridge, it is highly visible to all that visit the fridge, and makes an instant impact on the fridge users. Unlike promotional items such as cups that might be broken or T-shirts that might no longer fit, promotional magnets enjoy a longer service lifespan because they are more durable and cannot be damaged easily.
 

Low Advertising Cost per Impression

According to a research done by American Purdue University, the average person will open the fridge 10 to 12 times a day. Can you imagine for a small family of 3, the average number of impressions made by a single promotional magnet on your fridge is 924 per month and over 11,000 times per year? Do you also know that the average lifespan for a refrigerator magnet to remain on the fridge is 6 to 8 years? What all these numbers can show you is that promotional magnets have one of the lowest advertising costs per impression when it comes to marketing. This also means that if you are running a small business with a limited budget for marketing, these cost-effective promotional magnets can easily fit right into your budget.

Our pop up banners come in two stand styles: Standard ($189) and Deluxe ($225). Both are 33″ x 81,” the only difference is the deluxe stand is a little more smooth and shiny, and takes 5-7 business days, and the standard has perpendicular feet and can be ready in just 2-3 business days.

We did these gorgeous notecards for Apple Leasing, featuring raised red metallic foil. Photos do not really do this effect justice, it is super eye catching! Nothing leaves a lasting impression better than a handwritten note on a beautiful custom notecard. Order some for yourself or your business today!

This raised metallic look is created by lining up embossing and red hot foil.

There are so many options for customizing your business cards that there’s just no excuse for handing over something bland and generic. Here’s some tips to make sure your design looks awesome:

These super cool cards feature both embossing and spot UV treatment.
  1. Be consistent with your branding; your business cards, stationery, brochures, and website should all use the same 2-3 fonts and colors.
  2. Don’t use COMIC SANS or PAPYRUS 😀
  3. Try unexpected type direction or card orientation, or maybe even a custom shape
  4. The things that should sing the loudest are your company name, then your name, then all your contact information
  5. Don’t clutter up your card with excessive information or qualifications. Your card should answer the questions 1) Who Are You? 2) What do you do? 3) How can I reach you? Conversation and a brief perusal of your flyer or website can do the rest.
  6. Take advantage of the many customization options offered at Global:
  • Rounded Corners
  • Extra thickkk stock
  • Plastic or Metal cards
  • Embossing/Debossing
  • Custom Shapes
  • Spot UV coating (makes only certain areas shiny)
  • Raised Spot UV coating
  • Metallic Foil (any color)
  • Raised Metallic Foil (Gold, Silver, Copper, or Holographic)
  • Special Cutouts
  • Painted Edges
  • and most importantly custom design!

We printed these sticky notes and pens for Dr. Duke, and they’re a great way to make sure your business name keeps coming up for your customer and their office or house mates each time they’re used! Contact us to order custom office supplies of your own!

Office supplies make a great promotional item because they’re so useful.
