Make no mistake, the final goal of brochure printing is usually just to deliver a concise and quick message to people. Your custom brochures do not have to be like novellas or story books for that reason. They must be light and easy to read or understand. Do your brochure printing beyond this and you risk boring your readers and wasting your color brochures.
So for tips on keeping your brochures light and easy to read, here are four tips that you should abide by.
Chop information into sections ' First, do not forget to chop all the information you want to convey, into logical sections. For example, you can have an introduction, a frequently asked questions list, sections for different topics, illustrations and of course a section about you as the creator of the brochure. Have these logical sections organizes the arguments and concepts of your brochure making them easy to understand. Without these simple sections, your brochure content will turn into one big essay that no one may want to read.
Use lists ' Another good thing to do to make reading easier for your readers is to use lists when possible. Ordered lists (with numbers) and unordered lists (with bullets) are great at specifying specific concepts of a certain topic of category. Not only does this make it easier to remember the concepts, it also saves you the trouble of composing long transitional sentences and paragraphs to link one item to another. Your readers will appreciate the convenience in reading the information.
Display illustrations ' Images are also key to a lighter more manageable brochure. As the saying goes, a picture paints a thousand words. Your instructions or reminders can easily be summed up by a simple picture usually. You will not only save space when you do display illustrations, you will also help your readers understand more quickly the nature of the topic in that brochure.
Cut down the text ' Lastly, as a standard practice for your brochures, you must always try to cut down the text. Try to write as concisely as you can, with a minimal use of flowery adjectives. You may not realize it, but a well written brochure can have only half the length of a badly written brochure but still deliver the same message more effectively. It is all about cutting down the unnecessary chatter of the brochure and focusing on the important details. So try to cut down the text to the best of your abilities and you should get the light and easy to read brochure that you want.
Now you are ready to make your brochures lighter and more efficient to read. Good Luck!
