Branded stationery has the power to entice potential customers and generate curiosity for your brand. It can support brand building and help keep your business front of mind. From stunning finishes to eye-catching shapes, here's how to take your stationery to the next level.

Customising your stationery

From striking paper finishes to custom pens, notebooks and USBs, when it comes to stationery there are almost no limits to what modern technology can do. So, why always print the same old thing? Subtle tweaks to your design can have a great impact on the overall look and feel of your stationery.

Bespoke shapes and sizes

Create bespoke shapes using paper stock on everything from folders to business cards through die-cutting with Snap. Uniquely cut pieces like these not only stand out, but signal to your prospects that you're creative and you value attention to detail.

Visual aids

Incorporating images and graphics is another great way to enhance your stationery. 

Stationery varnishes

Machine, gloss, matte and UV varnishes add a protective liquid layer over the paper to create a smooth and even texture. You can cover an entire sheet or use 'spot' varnish to highlight particular sections of your print, which is popular on letterheads and business cards.

Stationery lamination (gloss/matte/satin)

Laminations are a thin layer of protective plastic that create a smooth, water-resistant finish. High-gloss finishes create a sleek modern look, while a matte finish can add a more high-end touch.

Print finishes

Why not try some new ink and paper combinations? Simply using a different stock can amplify stunning contrasts in colour and texture. 

Edge painting

Taking your business stationery from bland to brilliant takes a lot less than you think. All you need to do is embrace the uniqueness of your brand and let your creativity run wild.
