Rolling your brand out across different printed media

Each piece of printed media can be a new opportunity to reveal little gems about your brand. This could be your brand's purpose, it's point of view or its values. These opportunities are truly limitless, each one offering its own different feeling or mood. 

Matching the message to the media

People's experience of your brand extends further than your printed media. It's the experience they have when they visit you or your store, or when they phone your call centre. Each printed product is a small part of a bigger picture, which takes the pressure off communicating everything on each product. Strip your content back and use different printed media for different messages. For example, posters and signage lend themselves well to a single statement or point of view.



Mix up the messaging

Stationery can be a good opportunity to display your straplineor a call to action. Displaying brand messaging where it is not expected can add wit and warmth. Providing the basic information is communicated, it can be a good opportunity to say something else as well.

Encourage sharing

Small printed products like business cards, stickers and Instagram prints are easy to share and can help spread the word about your brand and what it stands for. Use just your logo to keep it simple, or add more information or a call to action to encourage people to get involved.

A lovely fun brand, good job Olive!

The stationary looks great, what paper stock is used for the cards and letterheads?
