A Great Secret to a Great Marketing Strategy

Did you know that half of all marketing email is deleted within two seconds?… or that two out of the four best responses to engage with customers is with catalogs and postcards?

This is where Homewood Press can step in and help your marketing strategy. Printed material is one of the best ways to engage with customers, however, an even better way to stand out is to use scented printing.

Scented printing can help your marketing campaign come alive! This is because smell is more prominent than sight, which forces the consumer to remember your content over another.
