Do you know how rack cards can help upgrade your print ad campaign? Are print advertising campaigns beneficial in the first place? The answer to the second question is yes, it still is. Despite the prevalence of digital promotional methods, there is still room in the business industry for print ads. In fact, this novel and ‘old school’ way of advertising is being appreciated by the current generation more because everything is digital. When you have something solid or tangible on hand, it becomes an item that you are bound to keep and appreciate. So what’s the role that rack cards play in today’s business scenario?
First, let us have a quick definition of the term. Rack cards are printed advertising materials which are usually available in these sizes:
- 5” x 8.5”
- 4’ x 9”
You will typically see these printed materials in the lobbies of theatres after a performance. Hotel lobbies, airports, reception areas of most companies, medical offices, and similar places also have a special container for these rack cards. Wherever there is heavy foot traffic is a great location for rack cards. If the printed material is eye-catching enough, anyone walking by will most likely grab one card from the rack. If people like what they read, they are bound to get another one or bring the one that they have home and use it for future reference.
Next, if you would like to take advantage of the benefits of rack cards to your business, what should you remember while in the process of rack card printing? It is important to look for a company that specializes in rack card printing. There are many digital printing companies out there, but those with offset printers and state-of-the-art printing presses will deliver better results.
When it comes to the design of the card itself, it is best to stick to the basics. Make sure that the design, colors, font, images or illustrations all blend together to create an attractive whole. At the same time, the overall look of the card must reflect the image that you would like to portray as a company.
If you want, you can also incorporate unique features in the card. Whichever of the two common sizes you choose, you can opt to include a detachable business card or coupon card when you print rack cards. This way, you will not just print an advertising material that will make people remember your brand, but you can also offer something extra to those who will grab one of your cards from the rack.
Through rack card advertising, you can up the ante in your print advertising campaign.
