Wedding stationery Market Harborough

With websites such as Pinterest offering soon-to-be weds with a whole host of original ideas for every aspect of their wedding – from the outfits to the venue and themes, weddings are more easily customised now.Alternative wedding stationery

One way of letting your personalities show in your wedding is through your stationery, which is no longer limited to a5 save the dates, invitations and place holders. Here are Omniprint’s ideas for alternative wedding stationery…

Poster style invitations – Think outside of the box and consider a poster design. Attendees often keep your invitation as a token to remember your wedding by, so why not create a poster, which can be framed and hung up by proud families.

Circular invites – Circular invites are a great way of deviating from the norm, whilst allowing for a traditional design.

Seeded paper – Seeded paper can be used for all wedding stationery, from menus to favour tags and place holders, encouraging guests to take it away and plant it for a lasting environmentally friendly keepsake.

Stationery games – Ideal for at the table, get your stationery printed so guests can play with it. Create origami instructions on the back of menus, or leave around paper fortune tellers for a fun way of telling your guests what they’ll be eating.

Stickers – Stickers are a really simple way of customising any stationery. Design them with a couples monogram and pop them on envelopes, on the back of invitations, and on place holders.

Have you checked off your wedding stationery checklist?

Wedding stationery Market Harborough

wedding stationery checklistThere’s nothing organised people like more than ticking off a checklist, so we’ve created the ultimate wedding stationery checklist to help out those who are about to begin the wedding planning process…

  1. Save the date – This will probably be the first that most people hear of your wedding date. Most save the date cards are simple, bearing just names, dates, and wedding location (if this is decided). Use elements of your wedding colours or theme if this is decided, but if not, remember that most people will also receive an invitation. These should go out around 6 months before the wedding if possible.
  2. Wedding invitation – This is where you can begin to use your wedding colours and theme. Your invitation should go out around 6 to 10 weeks prior to the wedding (earlier if you are expecting guests to travel to the wedding). Guests will use this as a guide for where to go, how to dress, what the theme of the wedding is, and keep it as a memento after the big day.
  3. Thank you cards – Get your thank you cards printed prior to the big day, as most couples won’t want to organise these straight after. These can include elements of your theme to bring all the stationery together, but should be handwritten.
  4. Order of service – These can really reflect your theme, and allow you to make your mark as a couple. Always include the date and venue of the wedding, the order of events, the titles of any readings or songs, and the names of bridal party members.
  5. Table plan & place cards –the table layout and décor is often one of the places where the theme of the wedding is displayed most prominently. Place cards can be traditional tented cards, or could be attached to an object linked with your theme – an outdoor wedding lends itself to flowers or fruit, so why not be a bit imaginative?

Your wedding stationery checklist

Wedding stationery Market Harborough

With the summer wedding season just around the corner, we thought we’d share our wedding stationery checklist, based on years of printing experience, with those brides and grooms to be…Wedding stationery

  1. Send a save the date – for most people this will be the first they hear of your wedding date. Generally the design of the card is simple, and could include elements of your wedding colours or theme if this has been decided. This should include your names, the wedding dates, and if possible, the wedding location so that guests from further away can begin making arrangements.
  2. Wedding invitation – the wedding invitation is where you can really begin to use the theme of your wedding. The invitation should go out eight to ten weeks before your wedding, so start ordering at least three months before. Remember that guests will use this as a guide before and during the wedding, and will hold onto it as a keepsake afterwards.
  3. Optional invitation inserts – with the rise of personalised and bespoke invitations has come an influx of additional inserts. Why not consider adding reply cards, reception cards, directions and information cards or event cards into your invitation?
  4. Thank you cards – it’s worth getting thank you cards printed prematurely, as most won’t have time to organise these straight away after the big day. These notes could include an element of your theme, but should be handwritten, thanking guests for attending and for any guests.
  5. Order of service – orders of service are also often kept as mementoes, so it can be nice to display your creative side in these. They should always include the date and venue of the wedding, the order of events, the titles of any readings or songs, and the names of bridal party members.
  6. Table plan & place cards –the table layout and décor is often one of the places where the theme of the wedding is displayed most prominently. Place cards can be traditional tented cards, or could be attached to an object linked with your theme – an outdoor wedding lends itself to flowers or fruit, so why not be a bit imaginative?

Are appointment cards still necessary?

businesscardWhilst text or email reminders for appointments are increasingly popular, there are still benefits to the old fashioned appointment card.

Firstly, appointment cards offer a physical reminder of an appointment – whether it be for a hair appointment or a business meeting, people tend to put the card somewhere they will see it and remember it. This means your card is probably seen by other people, so it offers some free advertising for you! Try to put all the basic information you would put on a business card onto your appointment card so that these potential new clients can get hold of you.

Try designing your cards to include special offers or vouchers, a QR code to link back to your website, or just some interesting facts about your business. By designing them with the customer in mind, you will have created something that they want to keep hold of and pay attention to.

Keep the design in line with that of your business’s promotional material, so that any potential clients know who you are, but feel free to think outside of the box with the rest of the design. Any interesting features will draw the client’s eye and help them to remember you.

To get your appointment cards printed professionally and make the best impression on your clients, contact Omniprint today on 01858 462152.

How will print marketing fare in 2014?

qr code businessWith the rapid development of technology over the past twenty years, it wouldn’t be foolish to consider the print medium to be dead. However, the print industry is continuing to grow, and has evolved to offer many things that online marketing cannot. 76% of small businesses state that their marketing would ideally involve both print and digital communication, in order to gain blanket coverage.

So how can print help your marketing campaign in the digital world?

Personalised printing – Variable printing allows your business to create bespoke media, changing parts from item to item, such as names, addresses and message sent. People will recognise the effort it has taken to create something personalised, and will feel special. This personal style is often neglected in digital marketing

Use print to back your digital campaign – QR codes are ideal for putting on flyers or brochures to direct your potential customer to more information, whether it be a website or social media page. These codes can be easily customised in order to fit with your campaign’s style.

Print marketing grabs attention – It makes sense that as more businesses compete for attention online, it can be beneficial to switch your focus to print marketing. People really value postal mail, and are far more likely to give this their attention than the thousands of email newsletters received in one day.

To get the best results, combine your print and digital marketing efficiently so that each plays off the other. Try to get creative with your materials in order to really create a good impression on your target audience. Contact Omniprint today on 01858 462152 to find out about our printing services. 

Get creative with your business cards

Omniprint - Business & Appointment cardsThe aim of a business card is to get your name and what you do out there for the public to see. Here are some interesting ways to use your business card to get noticed…

Give your card to anyone who asks for your number – whether it be a potential client, date or even just someone wanting to share lifts with you, by giving out a card you know that they have your correct details. Physically having passed them on makes them much more likely to be used, and also to be left around where someone else could read them!

Swap cards with someone – By giving a set of your cards to someone and taking some of theirs, you can draw a lot more attention to your business; your cards will reach a whole new group of people. Try to pick someone whose business you would use yourself, and who your clients are likely to benefit from knowing about.

Leave your cards in unusual places – Try hiding your cards in random settings, for example in a coffee shop or library. You never know, the people who come across them may need what you are selling, or may be prompted to pass them on.

Give out extra cards – If you are sending out products, why not add a few extra business cards with the delivery notice? The best case scenario is that they’ll be passed on to a few friends, along with a good review of the product you’ve provided.

Try adding a QR code onto your card – As most people use digital media, QR codes will make sure people know how to access your website directly. You can make these codes for free online.

Use the space on the back of your card – Add some form of discount voucher onto the back of your card, whether it be for a free consultation or money off, it will draw more attention than simply listing your name and what you do.
