Door hangers offer one of the most impressive returns on advertising investments for any size company. These printing products allow you to target your exact customer by marketing directly to homes or businesses that you choose. Easily designed, printed, and distributed, door hangers continue to be relied on as a necessary component for any successful marketing campaign.
Getting Started Designing & Printing Your Door Hangers
To begin, below you can choose from a wide variety of door hanger products with the 4.25" X 11" being the most commonly distributed size. The main differences between the selections below are the size, all are calculated in inches, and the option to have a detachable portion or what is known as a 2 inch perforation. Each selection will allow you to choose from a variety of paper stocks, from thin and affordable to our thickest (postcard thick) paper options. Once you have decided what size door hanger is right for your marketing campaign you will then have the option to (1)create a custom door hanger design, (2)start with one of our free door hanger templates, or (3)upload your own design. At the bottom of the page you will find useful videos and articles to make designing and printing your own door hanger fast and easy.
The first part of the process is selecting a door hanger size. Considering that door hanger sizes are based on inches you simply have to decide what size is right for your marketing campaign. Do you have a lot of images and content for your design? If that is the case then you are going to want to choose the standard 4.25 X 11 or larger. If your message is not based on a lot of content, then one of our smaller sizes will do. Remember that you have the option of printing on one or both sides so be sure to consider that when you are measuring how much content space is required. We offer a wide variety of sizes to help meet the advertising goals of any company.
Step 2. Selecting the Paper Stock
Choosing the right paper stock for your door hanger is just as important as size. Our thin and affordable 100 LB. Gloss Book is very similar to thick magazine paper. It is flexible like paper and is a great choice if having a sturdy thicker stock is not essential. Our 14 Point and 16 Point paper options are very similar to postcard type of paper. It is thicker and more sturdy,and the main difference between these two types of paper is about 20 percent thickness.
Step 3. Selecting your Paper Coating
Both aqueous coating and UV glossy coating are added to help make the paper stronger and coat the design. UV glossy coating also helps make your design's text and images standout a little more because of the glossy effect whereas aqueous coating still adds some vibrancy to your design without the glossy effect. If you plan on writing on your designs with a pen or pencil you might want that part of the design uncoated because it is much easier to write on. You can have your whole design uncoated or one side depending on the paper option you choose.
