Inserts

Reach your target…

Inserts are a great cost effective way to offer additional advertising value to clients. Research shows that they are the most preferred method for receiving advertising material by consumers (compared to web or direct mail). Mechanically inserted, in-bound, hand delivered by our distribution team, or plastic wrapped as on onsert; there are a number of ways of directly targeting an area or audience.

Call them PostIt, 3M Post-It, Sticky, Stikkie or Stikie Notes – call them anything, we’ll print them and stick them with your advertising message. These PostIt notes are a great way to get your customer literally on the front page. They are a great promotional tool and can be custom printed in a variety of standard sizes and colour options. Ideal for sales promotions.
