The Best Print Ads 2019: Packing More Power
Consumers tend to view print ads as far more credible than digital ads for two main reasons permanence and influence. Ads printed on paper offer consumers an opportunity to connect to products and services through touch and sight. Simply being able to touch the ad adds the relevance of realness or physicality of the product or service. Even seeing an ad in real life (as opposed to online) on a solid physical building or billboard creates that sense of realness and connection that consumers crave. That’s one of the primary reasons businesses reach out to us when searching for New York or Toronto graphic designers.

Print ads placed in magazines, newspapers, and playbills for theatre or sport, are viewed as more trustworthy by consumers who already have established connections with the print advertising channel. Specifically, print publications act very much like an Influencer would, adding an element of endorsement to your product or service.
