How to get your brochure noticed

The perfect way to showcase your company and what it can do, a brochure is a powerful marketing tool and important corporate document. With more and more companies investing in high end brochures, making yours stand out can be a challenge. To help you get the most from your brochure design, here are our top tips for ensuring your printed product gets noticed.

Use a different format 

The vast majority of brochures you’ll see are printed at A4 in a portrait format. Though this works well for many designs and is a great way to showcase a product line, a uniformly shaped brochure won’t stand out from the crowd. Instead, why not opt for a brochure that’s printed in a landscape format or that’s square, printed as a foldout or designed in another unusual format and show your clients you’re that little bit different?

Try an eye-catching shape

If you want to go one step further, you could even have your brochure printed in an eye-catching shape. Hexagons work well in printed form, or you could go for a circle, triangle or even try to create a 3D shape.


Soft touch and anti-scuff laminated brochures

Use a high impact finish

The finish you use on your brochure will be one of the first things people notice about your printed product. A contemporary matte finish, a bold gloss or a tactile laminate would all help your brochure to stand out. Whichever finish you choose, make sure you go as high end as you can afford to ensure you give customers the best possible impression of your business.

Types of book binding

Binding options

The style of binding you choose will depend on the size of your document, your budget and the look you want to achieve. Case binding and perfect binding will give your brochure a high end look while spiral binding and wire-o binding will help your printed product to look contemporary and stylish. Alternatively, saddle stitching and plastic comb binding will allow you to create a professional finish on a budget.
