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!

– Stuffing, Stamping, and Post Office Dropoffs

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.

We designed and printed these custom holiday cards and envelopes for
Aus-Tex Consolidated Services last year.

One of the best upgrades to make your items feel high end is raised metallic foil. It automatically comes with a special suede lamination that gives a unique and memorable feel, and is surprisingly affordable compared to traditional foil and embossing techniques. And the best part?

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.

Ascent Academy is an exciting new school opening in Austin this fall, whose mission is “to equip more young people in Texas with the skills they need to seek meaning in their lives, to become independent learners, and to become globally-minded critical thinkers.” We like the sound of that! Chris was so inspired by their ideas about teaching that he decided to do some
teaching of his own and brought his kiddo Wyatt along
to help install their signage and decals!
