Flyer design and print

Tuesday 24th May 2016   by Stuart Bickerton

Flyer design and print is still going strong despite us now being firmly in the digital age.

It’s still powerful to be able to give or send potential customers a well-designed leaflet or brochure with your service offer clearly shown.

If they look good and have useful information, flyers are likely to be kept for reference or shared with business colleagues.

We’re supporting our plant hire client, JMS, by developing a range of product and service flyers.

We first designed a welder hire and welding accessories flyer. This gives customers all the information they need to make hiring decisions about different types of machine.

We then kept the same design template for a new product called FuelBox. This is red diesel fuel supplied in a box, for machine users so they don’t get caught short (of fuel) on site.

In addition, we arranged the whole process of printing the flyers, then sending them out to JMS customers, and potential new ones.

Douglas Macmillan Hospice, or Dougie Mac to their friends, is one of the UK’s largest hospices, providing care for the people of North Staffordshire.

Legacy, the act of gifting a donation in your will, plays an important role in raising much-needed funds for Dougie Mac. In the 2014-2015 financial year, the value of legacies left by supporters came to £11m.

So, it’s important that the design and print of literature that supports this vital area of fundraising properly reflects the hospice’s service to the community and its brand.

The hospice’s legacy team asked our Telford graphic designers to work with them on ways to properly reflect to importance of their work:

Refreshed identity – logo, strapline and key images

Roller banner – for display at events and functions

Leaflet design and print – including promotion of their successful ‘Will Month’ in conjunction with local solicitors

Poster design and print

Window stickers – for their charity shops

Leaflet design and printing

We were commissioned to design and print a leaflet to show the link between smoking and age-related macular degeneration, or AMD.

This is a condition that leads to the loss of central vision, usually gradually, but sometimes rapidly (Source: NHS)

As with all leaflet design and printing projects, we worked closely with the client, the health promotion team in Shropshire, to make sure the final leaflet was easy to read, had the right key messages and had a very good chance of influencing and helping the target audience.

In common with all our other health promotion work – our graphic design team in Telford made sure the leaflet design followed NHS best practice guidelines.

You can be sure that your leaflet design and printing project would be handled with just the same care.

Creative brochure design helps Shropshire coach company plan exciting days out

Monday 20th May 2013   by Lindsay Crayton

We were delighted when one of Shropshire’s leading coach companies, Elcock Reisen, commissioned matm to come up with a new creative brochure design for their 2013 excursion season.

Creative brochure design is all about creating an instant impact in a promotional document that is highly practical and easy to use.

We opted for a format that, when folded, stands out and looks appealing when placed alongside other tourist brochures.

However, when it’s opened out, it provides all the key information in one place.

This year’s excursion programme takes in a number of new venues. These include Blenheim Palace and the Harry Potter sets at Warner Brothers Studio, London.

It’s great to think that thousands of Shropshire people will enjoy magical days out after being inspired by our brochure designs.

matm uses advertising, social media, print and video in Shropshire smoking campaign

Thursday 30th December 2010   by Stuart Bickerton

matm has helped devise a major New Year marketing campaign to encourage thousands of smokers in Shropshire to ‘Pledge to Quit’ in 2011.

We’ve been working working with Help2Quit, an NHS stop smoking service.

Help2Quit runs drop-in clinics across Shropshire offering one-to-one support for smokers. It also provides a free workplace service where smoking rates are high. Results show smokers are four times more likely to stop with Help2Quit support.

Key elements of the New Year campaign include bus shelter advertising, a leaflet drop to 40,000 homes, video clips of people explaining why and how they quit and a social media campaign.

Pledge To Quit leaflet designed by matm as part of Help2Quit's 2011 campaign

Stuart Bickerton, Director of the matm marketing, graphic and web design, web development and PR agency at Jackfield near Telford in Shropshire, says: “It’s vital that you use the right methods to reach target groups to generate the best value for money and the greatest impact.

“That’s one reason why social media, such as Facebook, will play a part in the campaign. Video provides excellent social media content and can be packaged differently for a range of purposes. Because we have the expertise to shoot and edit the video ourselves, it’s very cost effective.”

The bus shelter advertising campaign will be focused in the Telford and Wrekin area on busy main roads close to supermarkets. The leaflet mailing will be targeted in other areas of the county where there are high levels of smoking.

The Pledge to Quit message challenges smokers to think about the personal benefits of giving up – and explains the range of help at hand if they want to quit.
