StartWithaTheme-1.png

All you need is a digital camera and a computer. We recommend showcasing a picture or collage of photos on the cover of your program best describing your event.  Take your own photos or use a collection from parents or attendees. Another great way to get photos to supplement your programs is to buy photos from stock photo sites, or find a site that gives you photos for free! To save money, you can design the program yourself or let students or associates create their own event program. We also have an easy online designer to get you started and it's FREE.

 

QuickTip-1.pngRemember that a good resolution for printing photos is 300 dpi (dots per inch).  Anything below will print pixelated. Most images displayed on a monitor has a resolution between 72 dpi and 96 dpi, which means it may look great on your monitor but will not look great when printed.

UsetheRightKindofPhotos-1.png

You and your fellow program designers can take current digital pictures, gather digital pictures and or have fellow students, associates, etc. gather pictures that will enhance your program. We feel that these types of photos get the best results:

EPEX1.png EPEX2.png EPEX3.png EPEX4.png

Individuals, coaches, players, participants, etc.

Teams, groups, classes, staff, teachers, cheerleaders. Activities, action pictures, products, whatever you want to convey, etc. Pictures from previous years’ or other past events.

Liven up with people in funny situations and funny sayings to go with the picture. Events, places or things that relate to your cause or organization. Points of interest, such as people, landmarks, etc. from your school, organization, community, sports team, etc. Audience or participants having a good time participating.

QuickTip-1.pngIf your event is an annual or bi-annual occurance, using photos from the the previous event is effective and could even be a better way to excite people about attending this years event! Then the hard part is over when it comes to photographs. Just remember to take photos during this years game or fundraiser or whatever so you have easy access to material for next year!

IncludetheRightPages-1.png

Whether is it For Social, Pageant, Recital And Business Event Programs, including the right kind of pages is necessary for achieving program success! No matter what kind of event program you are using, there are countless pages you can use!

Plus don't forget History, Important Information, Accomplishments, Individual speakers or participants pictures and bios, Schedule οf events, Thank you page, Testimonials page, Schedule of Events and More!

QuickTip-1.pngDon't forget to add Filler Pages! Programs are a saddle stitched booklet. Page counts have to be divisible by 4. (8, 12, 16, 20, 24 and so on). We have ideas that make great filler pages to help you make your program the right number of pages. Why not include an extra page for information about your event? Or a "rules of the game" page that explains to your audience what is happening? Another page we recommend is a statistics page or records page that shows past scores or puts this specific event in perspective with similiar events happening around the country. You can even add an autograph page that is great for dance recital programs or sporting events, even concerts! 


And that is it! You got our smart secrets and our quick tips to make this years event program the best one yet. It all boils down to organization and choosing the right printer.

HOW TO ADVERTISE WITH FLYERS & BROCHURES

There are several ways to advertise with Flyers & Mail.pngBrochures, but the two most popular ways to advertise with postcards is to either advertise and distribute yourself, or with EDDM® from the USPS®. Choosing to advertise yourself could be paying high out of pocket costs to self address and mail to every person you want to target. It could even mean going door to door to local businesses. The biggest difference between using EDDM® and mailing flyers and brochures yourself is the cost. With EDDM®, you pay a small fee to the USPS®, and your postcards are sent out to a specific route or zip code you want to target. You won't need to buy specific mailing lists or addresses. Your postage is included in your fee to the USPS®, which saves you a lot of money that you would have to spend if you were doing it yourself.
