Companies come up with gimmicks just to have the customers' favor them over the competition. However, those gimmicks can be a little costly. Here are some printed materials small companies can use instead of buying tons of expensive free stuff for the customers to attract clients.

Brochures - Brochures are printed materials that give broad information about the company. All the vital information about the company, like its name, logo, business address, contact person, and contact number, should be included on the brochure. A short company history can also be added to it.

Survey and suggestion forms - These are forms filled out by the customer with their vital information. In survey forms, the company asks their clients to give any comments, suggestions or violent reactions about their trade show products and services. Through these forms, the company will know which among the services they offer need improvement. It is also through survey forms that companies are able to send out monthly newsletters, since the customers' address is written on it.

Flyers - Flyers or handbills are much like brochure, except they are not as informative as brochures. Flyers are usually given to announce new services and products by the company.

Wall graphics - They are used mainly as a decoration for the company's booth. Trade show wall graphics can both be a design and an informative material by including little information about the company on it. Sizes for wall graphics can range from as small as 8 x8 inches or as big as 58 x 100 inches. Wall graphics are printed on photo tex material.

There are products out on the market today that offer tablecloths that they call "adjustable" but actually are just 6' drape style trade show table covers that end up being too short on the sides and back when used on an 8' table. That's not adjustable! Look for truly adjustable options.

Secondly, we offer new table wraps. Table wraps work just like skirting with a full bleed print.

Screen Print lasts longer the Dye Sub Print:

Dye sub full color print process is actually dyed into the fabric. Screen printing process stays on top of the fabric. Screen printing inks have improved and are more flexible so are now less likely to crack but dye sub prints never crack because it is actually dyed into the fabric so lasts longer.

I can't get my trade show table cover printed because I only have low res artwork
