In their recent catalog ad campaign, Ikea agrees with what SCG has been claiming for many years; print is not dead. Take some time and watch this ad http://time.com/3265308/ikea-catalog-2015/ that promotes their new catalog Bookbook, where the Swedish furniture chain uses 3D technology to represent their products on each of the glossy pages that potential customers will turn. In a very clever fashion, they extol the virtues of their catalog claiming that it’s based on tactile touch technology, and it’s fully charged with a battery that is eternal. Ah the virtues of paper, something that SCG has been practicing since it’s founding https://socalgraph.com/about-scg/history/ in Los Angeles in 1974.
Advantages of Print
While Ikea is in the business of selling home furnishings, they have struck every note about the advantages of print in their recent ad, and we at SCG couldn’t agree more. First and foremost, there’s a human element in holding a piece of print media in your hands. Potential clients and existing clients can hold and study everything from business cards, to sell sheets, to brochures https://socalgraph.com/capabilities/brochure-printing-los-angeles/ and make informed purchasing decisions. That’s what we call the tangibility factor; print is real and real denotes reliability and trustworthiness.
Here at SCG we respect your brand, and we will reflect your branding message across all forms of print media, which gives that message strength. Collateral print materials have tangible substance, they have transparency, and as Ikea has shown, they have terrific browsability, which promotes sales. Hold, read, browse, buy. And with print media, no battery needed.
