Although a brochure is generally small, it can pack a big punch. In short, a brochure can explain, in clear, concise language, your organization or brand’s purpose or services. It is often a handy item to grab for customers who want the best information in the easiest fashion. What your brochure says and how it looks directly reflects your brand and your company, so it pays to give your brochure design and layout some serious thought.
Here’s what you may want to consider when creating your company or brand’s brochure:
- The Layout – Brochures can come in a variety of layouts, sizes and folds. Although what you choose may depend on the information you need to include in the brochure, your final decision may ultimately come down to price. It’s always a good idea to price printing services before you begin designing your brochure.
- The Purpose – What point are you trying to get across in the brochure? And, perhaps more importantly, who is your target audience for the brochure? Although you may have a good idea of your brochure’s purpose and target audience before you even begin designing your brochure, it’s always a good idea to ask yourself the purpose and audience often as you write and design the brochure.
- The Format – How you design and write your brochure will determine the readability of it. For example, if your brochure is jammed with copy, but little else, you may lose your reader’s attention. Many times, bullet points, FAQs, graphics and photographs are a great way to break up the copy and ensure that your brochure is as attractive as it is informative.
- Quality Printing – Because a brochure must immediately capture your audience’s attention and be something your target audience wants to pick up and read, it must be attractive, and there’s no better way to accomplish this than with full-color brochures printing. Being able to attract your audience with full-color graphics and photographs is a must, so it is important to consider the many advantages of using full-color brochures printing. Although full-color brochures printing are more expensive than black-and-white printing, you certainly get more bang for your buck. After all, a brochure won’t do you any good if people don’t want to pick it up and read it.
