Compliment Slips are extremely important in the world of print. Not only do they make the customer feel valued, but they also enable brand recognition.
They are a professional but also personal way to keep in contact and maintain a relationship with your clients.
Bearing that in mind, here are 5 things we here at Bold Colours believe make a good Compliment Slip.
Let's start with the obvious – use your brand! As mentioned above, this is a great way to ensure clients remember your brand, and if your brand is eye-catching it will mean you will stick it in their mind for future projects.
Always add a handwritten note to your compliment slips, instead of just having a generic typed out "thank you". This makes the client feel more valued and it adds a personal touch which is so important in today’s digital world.
There’s a reason most compliment slips are mostly on white paper. This ensures simplicity, making it straightforward and minimal. If there are too many elements on the page it will start to get crowded and confusing. Think logo, a small image or vector and contact details. If there’s no space for a handwritten note, you’ve put too much on!
Nobody wants to be confused when trying to read a thank you. To ensure this doesn’t happen, keep your message clear, concise and to the point. Don’t go writing an essay, a simple "thank you for your business" with the name of the person will suffice.
A compliment slip is essentially another way to promote your company, you want it to be on good quality paper! Even if loads are being printed, skimping on the paper quality should not be considered. If you want people to return to use your company, you should put your best foot forward. (Or in this case.. paper!)
