Brochures, unlike booklets have a larger page count, giving you more room to share your stories, products or information. Traditionally when we think of a brochure, a high end finish is what comes to mind, glossy full colour pages, encased in a sturdy cover with beautiful full colour images of high end products, such as luxury furniture, glamorous holiday destinations or beautiful cars reserved for the high end, high turnover business.
With the evolution of low volume printing presses, business start ups can now print these beautifully produced portfolios of their products, or business models, without the high price tag. Brochures have, over time evolved into a business staple and is used as widely as other marketing literature.
Businesses from all back grounds, with the help of modern media have unlimited images of their staff, products, events and busily produce literature for email marketing campaigns and social media sites.

A well designed brochure is a great tool for many businesses to introduce themselves to their clients. As well as being an informative piece of literature on the subject, a brochure can help generate leads, illustrate products and give a more in-depth description of services than a flyer or leaflet. Brochures lend themselves to showing off large scale photographs and experimentations with different print processes, such as spot UV and embossing.
Here are a few tips on how to design a well-structured brochure:
Page planning is an important part of producing a brochure. Make sure you create a table of contents, and estimate how many pages your text will need. Remember to allow for more in case you run over, and leave some space for imagery and relief space.
Try not to cram too much information onto one page. Often brochures contain large text-heavy areas, so use clear sub-headings and vary the size and shapes of text areas to keep the pages looking interesting. Break up the content with images and consider if any of the content would be better placed as bullet points, rather than paragraphs.
A clear call to action throughout the brochure ensures the reader has every opportunity to contact you, making it more likely to give you a return. Use phrases like 'Call for a quotation' or 'Visit our website for more information'. Lead readers to your website where they can find even more information about you, and make sure your design uses consistent branding throughout both the brochure and website.
Pictures really do paint a thousand words, so invest in good photography and consider commissioning a photographer to take photos of your products or company. If you don't have the budget for this, you can use a stock image website such as www.istockphoto.com or www.fotolia.com. You can buy royalty-free, professionally taken, photographs from their huge range of galleries for a fraction of the cost of producing your own, and they will ensure your brochure has a really professional look. Using low quality, out of focus, images from your mobile phone doesn't create a good impression and isn't a good way of selling your services to anyone!
