    Some people feel that the printing advertisement ways are starting to become less important. (Printing - flyers, brochures, business cards and etc)


    I personally still think it's a great way to go about growing your business. It might be slow, but it's better than having none and wondering what you could do to bring more customers. Everyone goes out to a social meeting at some point, why not have an easy business card to hand out to a couple people, maybe they know some other people who are looking for your type of product!


    Anyways, I'd love to hear about your thoughts on printing advertisement, and if it works for you!

    Hey guys,


    we are Fabian and Ivan from Hamburg, Germany and try to realize our lifetime dream through Kickstarter (Crowd funding).

    In fact we dislike self-promotion in terms of spam but in our current position there is no other possibility and otherwise we can bury our lifetime dream.

    Our plan is to found a new fashion brand. Fashion means to us shoes, fragrances for him and her and headphones. Our marketing-concept is based on promotion through celebrities. In the past it was possible to us to get a good connection to popular people. There onto we want to open a store in Los Angeles, Hollywood to emphasize the elegance and exclusivity.

    For our big plan we need 3.5Mio € to be competitive on the international market. In this cause we published our intentions on Kickstarter to get our project financed through crowd funding.

    It would be awesome if you support us. Every euro brings us further and of course we have little considerations for you helping us.

    We got after 12 hours almost 12.000€.

    We thank you with all our heart and you can have a look at the following link:


    Best regards,

    Fabian and Ivan

    It doesn't have to be slow, but the condition is proper targeting. Printing advertisement is very important. Personally, I can't imagine a serious entrepreneur without a business card...

    Printing advertisements is still important despite the increasing popularity of online advertising. It's very useful to keep a flyer and a business card on hand -- you do not want to miss the people who you attended with during that business conference or startup gathering, right?

    I believe print advertising is hugely important. One of the best ways to ensure someone has your details is via a business card. You have to remember that it's very useful for exhibiting too. Let's take this scenario as an example. Imagine you were at an exhibition with your Pop Up Display Stands and it draws lots of attention from the public. Most exhibition stand holder will have business cards or leaflets or flyers designed and printed off for their exhibition stand so people have something to take away. Without these you will either lose potential customers or have a long day of people asking for contact details. Some people may feel that print advertising is becoming less important but I still see it as a very important form of advertising.

    How about magnet business cards? They're great for mailers and leave behinds.
