One thing that printing London will advise their customers is that pages full of writing will not appeal to the reader. Avoiding too much text is key when it comes to designing any literature; break up any copy that you need to include with plenty of visual aids such as photos, charts and illustrations. That said, white space can also be a powerful took to avoid a crowded look. You may feel tempted to ensure that every inch you pay for is used, however white space can break up any areas of text as well as create a frame for all the content on the page. If you do have plenty of images included in the document then try to have captions with all the photos (where appropriate of course). This ensures that the reader has some idea of what they are looking at as well as identifies any products that you might want to give a sales boost to.
Whilst the above tips are the basics to creating business literature there are some other things to keep in mind. Staying as close to possibly to standard formats is recommended as anything “abnormal” may not be easily filed, posted or likely to be kept. You may think that this will make you blend in to the crowd, but sometimes making things easier for the customer or client is more important than sticking out! When it comes to the designing and distribution of your business literature it is also advisable to have one person responsible at all times. Having one person will give a more uniformed design and feel to all of the documents that you distribute out as well as ensuring that everything is kept together and in one place when it comes to filing, time-lining and planning.
