Boost your Business with RFID Blocking Cards.

As the world becomes more digitally connected, staying safe from hackers and identity theft is naturally becoming a growing concern. One of the most effective and affordable ways for people to protect themselves is to carry RFID blocking cards. RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) blocking cards are designed to shield your credit and debit cards, passports, and other important documents from being scanned by nearby hackers. With this is mind, we will soon be seeing a lot more RFID cards being tucked into wallets, so why not maximize their purpose by adding your business contact information? A standard business card can now be transformed into a valuable security tool that people will always keep with them. Talk about clever branding that doubles as a handy, thoughtful gift.  Let’s explore this concept a bit further. How RFID blocking cards work: RFID blocking cards work by creating a barrier between the card and the reader. When enabled, the card emits a low-frequency signal that blocks any attempts by hackers to access the card’s data. The card also prevents any other RFID enabled device from being able to detect the radio waves emitted by the card. This ensures that your card and personal information is safe and secure. Blocking card benefits for your business: Beyond the excellent security features, RFID blocking cards are lightweight, making them easy to carry around. So instead of a blank RFID card, why not get a whole bunch of them designed and printed to showcase your business information and […]

Using QR codes is a powerful way for businesses to stay connected while distanced; keeping your audience informed and engaged.

How To Combine Print and Digital Marketing For Real Results

When it comes to marketing and promoting your company or organization, there’s no doubt that digital is essential. Recent stats show that time spent online continues to increase on a yearly basis, with the average Canadian spending approximately 157.6 minutes a day on the Internet in 2018. Although the fact that we are spending more and more time online is undeniable, it’s a little shortsighted to think that your marketing and advertising efforts should only live online.

Here are a few ideas: Use QR Codes QR codes allow your print marketing material to adopt a dynamic, digital aspect that will create a seamless transition between your print and digital marketing efforts.

What To Look For In A Print Company

You’ve got a killer concept and the talent needed to design a winning direct mail campaign. There’s only one thing standing in the way of you and your successful print marketing campaign – choosing a print company that can really execute. While price is an important factor when it comes to selecting the right company for the job, there are several other factors that play an important role in ensuring your printer can truly meet (and even exceed) your expectations. Here are the four things you should look for when choosing a print company to partner with: Price While your budget should not be the only factor you consider, it’s definitely important. Be aware, however, that a company that offers an exceptionally low price may not be able to deliver a quality product that meets your deadline and expectations. Instead of just basing your decision on price, look for a printer who has a budget that aligns with industry standards and who may be open to providing bulk discounts. Quality Quality also matters of course. Before selecting a printer, it’s a good idea to preview work samples, if possible. You should also ask about former and current clients. Finally, a quick search on google or the company website can unearth customer testimonials that will speak to the overall quality that your print company will provide. Relationship Although price and quality are really important, the ability to develop a good relationship with your printer is also key. You and your printer […]
