Santa Barbara Custom Printing Services

Printing on Paper in a Digital World

When businesses need to get the word out about the existence of their business and the custom printing services in Santa Barbara they offer, most are advised to use digital media. After all, everyone is online, and most potential customers carry smartphones. In many ways, that’s sound advice. Digital media can be stored on a phone or in the cloud and can be accessed at any time. At least in theory. In reality, few people tend to organize information about businesses that interest them, even when there is a possibility of doing business with a company in the future. Often, digital files simply go in one big pile. If a potential client or partner has your business information in a digital file, they may only need to scroll through pictures of their daughter’s band concert, their friend’s cat, as well as random memes that seemed cute at the time. There was a time when digital looked like the answer to too many piles of paper, but in many cases, digital paper piles are just as bad. When scaling down digital files it is easy for digital business cards to get deleted by accident. This is one reason why many have never let go of paper, and others have found their way back to it.


Just like people who prefer to hold a paper book in their hands and feel the weight of it, people still like to connect with businesses through old-school business cards. If anyone actually does want a digital card, it is as simple as snapping a photo of the hard copy. Many people find that exchanging solid cards, flyers, and pamphlets from custom printing services fosters a personal connection and even contributes to how much a business is trustworthy. Another benefit is that printed media is easy to jot down extra notes and they can be kept somewhere that is accessible, even if their cell phone dies.

Ways Custom Printing Can Help Your Business

Working with a quality custom printer and designer can do a lot for your business. Having printed materials that you plan to share and distribute forces you to focus on what’s important when it comes to serving customers and growing your business. Some specific ways custom printing services can help include:


  • Get the word out about your business and the unique products and/or services you provide. How are you different than a similar business a couple of miles down the road? If there isn’t already something that differentiates you, it’s a good time to add to what you offer.
  • Helps you develop brand consistency. If you are printing several types of printed media, you need something that will tie the pieces together, whether you are handing out business cards or T-Shirts. Brand consistency helps you know yourself and your business values. Having printed advertising in the world encourages you to be accountable to yourself, your business, and your customers.
  • Encourages word-of-mouth advertising – There’s no better advertising than a satisfied customer that’s excited about the products and services you provide. Print advertising isn’t just about brochures and pamphlets, you can also present your business on pens, bags and other freebies that customers can share with others only to be asked about your business.
  • Save on operational costs. Not every small business has the budget for television or other media ads. For newer businesses especially, a well-designed print campaign can work just as well. If a potential customer is intrigued by a TV ad, there are only a few seconds to form an opinion about a business before the television switches back to their program. In many cases, they don’t even recall what ads they have seen. But when a piece of direct mail or a business card piques someone’s interest, they have something tangible to go back to whenever the time is right.
