Getting ads placed in newspapers and magazines is an important element in local advertising because of the nature of the media. Print is tangible and it has a longer shelf life and readability factor than digital ads. Because of this circulation and longer retention, not to mention the cost of printing, these ads tend to cost a bit more than digital ads, but they can be very effective for branding/awareness, targeting specific types of readers and drawing a new audience to your digital presence. LMP is an expert in print media, publishing and production. Call to consult with us on your marketing project.
Signs and Indoor/Outdoor Marketing
Signage can be a great way to advertise products or services, but it is important to follow rules and beware of regulations or local standards that apply to your lease, neighborhood, city, etc. If you need a custom design, a specific type of sign product or otherwise, call LMP to discuss your options. We can help produce and deliver custom vinyl banners, A-frames, yard signs, real estate signs, vehicle graphics and other types of products.
