Digital technology is growing all the time, at a ridiculously fast rate. Just think about the devices that are part of everyday life, and compare them to what we were using even 10 years ago. Smartphones, TVs and watches, 5G, apps and streaming services.

It’s no wonder the value of print is frequently called into question.

But, this digital evolution actually enhances the power of print for your business. Why? Because it delivers an experience your customers cannot get from their screens.

Print matters because it provides credibility

Print offers a higher level of credibility when compared to online content – with 82% of respondents to a MarketingSherpa customer satisfaction survey saying they trust print when making a purchasing decision.

Using print is a sign that your business is serious about business. After all, anyone can send an email – just think about the spam we have to deal with everyday.

Print provides a much more considered approach which won’t get lost in the digital noise.
