Flyers (including sell sheets) and brochures have proven themselves to be an inexpensive and successful marketing tools - in not only the historical and genealogical market but others as well. Other options for your campaign can include art cards, business cards, post cards, book marks, posters, over-run covers, gift certificates, transparencies (for your classes and/or speaking engagements), themed stationery/order tracking supplies, etc. Evaluate your individual style and adapt elements of marketing into it. Authors who ignore who they are, in favor of the "hard sell", rarely find marketing a positive experience.
Pre-publication flyers and brochures are very useful for taking book orders, but also help establish the number of books to order from the printer/publisher. To further assist your, these flyer and brochure services have been expanded, over the years. A free gift to book clients is even available, upon request. While the options are almost endless for marketing, we can help you! The most economical options are listed below. Free quotes on anything you can design or describe, are only an email away.
Get the word out: formal copyright registration, obtaining a library of congress number, and getting an ISBN. These are more things that are sometimes overlooked, or even considered unnecessary in genealogy.
Promotional pieces can take any form you can think of. Above are just a few things that have proven themselves in promoting genealogy and family books. Contact us for free, custom quotes on any promotional pieces and quantity you would like to do. Graphic design for PR is very reasonable with our company as we understand how important these are.
We can design and prepare your brochures (bi-fold or tri-fold are popular) in a wide variety of color and texture choices. These are printed both sides in the self-mailer style and can include title, author, information about your book artwork, order form and in some cases, comment from the publisher, etc. Your brochures are then printed, folded, labeled (if not variable data) and mailed for you. Currently, we offer USPS First Class, EDDM, Standard mail imprint (bulk), and others. Your name and address appear on both the order form and return address, unless you instruct us otherwise. In this way, you take your own orders and any mailing that is undeliverable is returned directly to you. Design and layout fees are generally higher, if not producing quantities of at least 200. Below are prices for house paper, but note USPS suggests heavier stock (at least 24/60#) to come through their high speed sorting machines better for self mailers.
Flat printed on any other size paper are available for other prices. Thermograph (raised printing), quad-fold and fan-fold can also be commissioned. Many other options also available.
