Welcome to the Get Noticed blog! This month, I’m going tell you all about one of the most important pieces of physical materials for established businesses, particularly those with stakeholders.
I am of course talking about the annual report, which might sound like a boring item, but it absolutely does not need to be. With more uncertainty than ever and increased competition across the business landscape, it’s important that your company sets itself apart from the others in your field.
This is something you can achieve with a pitch perfect annual report.
Every little helps, and a fantastically designed, easy to read, and visually appealing annual report is a brilliant way to get ahead of the game and prove your worth to customers and stakeholders alike.
Annual Reports During COVID – More Important Than Ever
In a year that has seen a massive socio-economic change, mostly for the worst, it has become ever more important to share achievements and future goals with your customers and stakeholders.
There’s a lot of uncertainty in the world right now and it’s affecting businesses in profound ways, so you need to ensure that certain minds are at ease and they know they’re in safe hands.
This, obviously, comes with facts and figures, as well as plans for the future. But it’s always a good idea to add a level of professionalism to your annual reports with something that is great to look at and made of high quality materials. This helps give you that extra boost when it comes to speaking to those who matter most within your business.
Annual Reports and Brochures with Get Noticed Branding
As you probably know, I’m incredibly experienced in the branding game and have an abundance of knowledge and happy customers to show for it. I also have a newly released, 2021 Get Noticed Print Catalogue, which features design and print options for a huge range of branded products, including annual reports.
When it comes to annual reports and brochures, I provide five different choices for my highly valued clients. I also have a wide array of high-quality paper stocks and finishes available, which enables you to bring your annual report to life and stimulate curiosity with a compelling and professional handout.
Let’s take a look at the different kinds of reports I have available to design and print;
Perfect bound reports are, as you’d expect, pretty much the perfect report option. They come in booklet form and feature a glued spine, which makes them the ideal choice for reports with heavier paper stocks and higher page counts.
These are therefore the premier choice for more thorough annual reports with lots of information on the past year as well as plans for the future, which is increasingly important thanks to COVID.
Saddle Stitched Reports
The saddle stitched report is ideal for conveying exciting messages in a professional and easy-to-read format. Perfect for lower page counts, this binding option is generally used for smaller reports and those working to a tighter budget.
This is because saddle stitched booklets are the most affordable binding option I provide, but this doesn’t mean skimping on quality, as they come in uncoated, gloss or silk. I also have custom sizes available up to A4 and up to 68 pages.
Wiro Bound Reports
Again, coming in uncoated, gloss or silk, the wiro bound reports can accommodate up to 482 pages. This binding method allows pages to lie flat, making them perfect for easy reading.
Available in sizes from A6 to A3 and with the option to have an acetate cover, the wiro bound report adds a flawless finishing touch to any business documentation, including annual reports.
Spot UV Reports
Get creative and help get your report noticed by adding Spot UV on the cover. This is a unique provision of something that really stands out from the crowd and is sure to wow your customers and stakeholders.
Essentially, Spot UV is a clear shiny gloss varnish designed to enhance areas of your design. It looks absolutely fantastic and will make your brochure very hard to miss as well as memorable.
