What should you include in a business brochure?

Research has shown that people remember more when they read it in print than online, so it pays to introduce your company to potential customers with a business brochure. Unlike a flyer, it needs to offer value rather than rely on a short, sharp message. A brochure is a bigger investment than a leaflet, and gives you the opportunity to give a more in-depth view of who your company is.

Here are our top tips to make sure you get the best return on your printing budget:

With printed wallpaper you can now have your walls personalised just the way you want them. Our paper is 480mm wide and comes in pre-cut lengths to suit the height of your room. Each roll is labelled to make hanging simplicity itself using conventional Wallpapering techniques.

1. Make sure your wall is dry and smooth
Make sure your wall is smooth and even as possible.

2. Check your overlaps have plenty of paste
If you are papering a wall that needs pasting, make sure you don’t miss the edges when applying paste. Excess will be easy to wipe away so use plenty!

3. Use a sharp knife and take your time!
Use a straight edge as a guide when cutting and go slowly. Take your time and the results will be a lot better – slow and steady wins the race.

4. Two sets of hands are better than one!
Like most DIY jobs, a little help can go a long way – especially on big walls.

Attention Grabbing

Attractive vehicle wraps, incorporating bright colours and your branding allows your company’s vehicles to stand out from all the other cars on the road.  Drivers don’t pay much attention to plain white vans, but they will notice a well-designed vehicle wrap. Colorful vehicle wraps are so engaging that peoples’ eyes naturally gravitate towards them.


Reach a Wider Audience

Depending on the size of your fleet, how often they are on the road and distance covered; you can reach from tens of thousands to over a hundred thousand viewers per month. You can reach a larger audience with a vehicle wrap than almost any other form of advertising.

Cost Effective

As opposed to billboards and advertisements that have consistent reoccurring costs for as long as you advertise, you can change your vehicle wrap as little or as often as you like!

Local Advertising

Vehicle wrap advertising is targeted marketing and advertising as it helps you achieve brand recognition in the area you operate.



Vinyl vehicle wraps help protect your vehicle’s body from scratches and chips from road debris. Specialists can also easily remove vinyl vehicle wraps without damaging your vehicle’s paint. Vinyl vehicle wraps help keep your vehicles in better condition for when you need to trade them in or sell them.

Glasgow PDC can prepare beer mats in a range of themes colours and designs. These include beer mats suitable for weddings, birthdays, Christmas, as well as themed mats such as fruit, animals, birds, cats and dogs. At Glasgow PDC we can also provide national flags and even a range of unique Smilie Face beer mats.


Our beer mats are functional as well as visually pleasing, the mats provided by Glasagow PDC are made with a litho printed laminated construction which combines high quality print with effective absorption properties. The absorption layer is 1.5mm thick open texture wood pulp board.

All too often, the end product at the end of the bar is a cheap alternative, which are typically printed on paper and then mounted (glued) onto a substrate which may or may not be pulpwood. However, whilst these “beer mats” may look good out of the box how functional are they?

So, if you are looking for an inexpensive way of ensuring your customers are entertained and your business leaves a lasting impression, why not design your very own beer mats?  Alternatively you could get in touch with our design team!
