If you and your friends are in a band, you have likely put a lot of effort and time into rehearsals, writing music, and fine tuning your performance. Before you hop onto the big stage you want to do your best job at promoting the event in an effort to draw a crowd. It can be helpful to put together a couple promotional pieces of marketing literature to create attention. Both professionally printed flyers and professionally printed posters can be easy to design and the printing can be completed in a professional and timely manner.

Flyers can help spread the word about your upcoming show. A well designed flyer can be distributed around town at locations where your customer base may frequent. A few ideas include music stores, coffee shops, and book stores. Flyers come in a variety of sizes including 1/8 of a page, 1/6 of a page, 1/4 of a page, 1/2 of a page, and full page.

Posters are a great visual that can attract a variety of passers-by or customers that frequent specific venues. A nightclub or establishment where you plan to perform will benefit by hanging up a poster that can be seen to customers inside as well as placing the poster in the window that can be seen by individuals walking on the sidewalk outside. The posters can benefit both your band and the venue, after all, you both want a large crowd.

Both flyers and posters should transmit a feeling of the style of music you will perform. If your music is more subdued and classy, you may want a more conservative design that will convey that message. A loud and energetic rock band will likely want a vibrant attention getting graphic that is as attention grabbing as their music. Flyers and posters can be printed on glossy paper with a protective aqueous coating.

Custom flyers, posters and Color Brochure Printing can help draw a crowd to your next performance. Keep in mind you also may want to investigate Business Card Printing to go along with your other marketing pieces.
