This ‘wow factor’ brochure has a real change of pace to it and uses a variety of creative design, print and finishing techniques to impress end users and stand out from the competition.

Marketing success – the ‘full monty’

Production techniques used on the brochure;

• Coated, uncoated and grid lined papers
• Print finishing techniques; Embossed logo and die-cut window to covers
• Metallic duotones – two Pantone ‘spot colours’ (metallic silver and black) imagery to inners
• High impact full colour pages with dynamic imagery
• Technical illustration and specification centre section

A no expense spared project, ‘a full monty’, one of Bulletpoint’s favourites and a marketing success for Richard and Hargreaves Iron Foundry (Halifax, West Yorkshire).

Quality leads, quality literature

Quality leads were targeted from a purchased database and generated via an inexpensive third A4 leaflet mailer (with a matching silver cover). A tear-off (reply paid card) response mechanism included a request for the brochure to help maximise the cost of targeting quality leads with quality marketing literature. (Not shown).
