Who should consider adding custom-printed note pads to their marketing plan?
Custom-printed note pads can be part of a corporate marketing plan for just about any organization that would benefit from have ongoing exposure to their name, logo and marketing message.

Firms that regularly perform sales presentations for big-ticket items, such as home-improvement companies or vehicle dealerships, often give out custom notepads at the conclusion of their pitch. Manufacturers, distributors, and industrial sales organizations frequently give out notepads to help influence clients as well.

distribute printed pads to everyone on their donor list. Hotels and motels are well

What options are available for custom-printed note pads?
Notepads are one of the most popular promotional giveaways because they are totally customizable. There is a lot of room for creativity so the design is totally up to you.
For example, notepads can be printed with any message, image, theme, or layout you choose. You can have them printed in full-color, one or two colors, or plain black ink. The paper color can be basic white, one of many pastels, or virtually any hue or texture that matches your corporate image. Pads can also be printed with or without lines.
The size of the pads can be a standard size - such as 8.5" x 11", 5.5" x 8.5", or 4.25" x 5.5" - or just about any custom size, including mini or oversized pads. Furthermore, the orientation can be portrait, landscape, or square.
Also, the number of sheets per pad is variable…25, 50, 100, or something else. Regardless of the sheet count, all padded documents incorporate a chipboard backer for rigidity. In addition, shrink-wrapping note pads into small bundles, such as packs of 5 pads, is an affordable way to minimize damage during transit. Shrink-wrapping also makes the pads easier to inventory and distribute to clients.
Because notepads and memo pads provide targeted brand exposure for such minimal expense, these products are an extremely popular giveaway. If you'd like to include custom-printed note pads as part of your marketing plan, give Formax Printing a call at 866-367-6221.
