Recent face in the hole boards March /April

Business at Photo Cutouts is never quiet, but it’s picking up quite a bit now for the Spring/Summer marketing and events season. We’re making bold, colourful custom event boards for more and more brands and causes every year, and the upward trend is continuing as we swing into the (fingers crossed) warmer months of 2018. In addition to our classic range of off-the-peg traditional wedding and seaside boards which are always popular, we really enjoy making bespoke boards for marketing events, product launches, TV and radio stations (BBC and ITV among them), weddings and fundraising events.

Here are a few of the ones we’ve made is March and April, though this is the tip of the iceberg because there are so many others we can’t tell you about because the events haven’t happened yet! Suffice it to say that Summer 2018 will be another bumper face in the hole board-filled year as brands and causes across Britain use our unique boards to promote their messages.

ITV Weather

ITV Weather rang us in early April to order 6 or our space-saving folding boards for a series of mobile events inviting members of the public to be weather presenter for a day. These boards can be folded in half for easy transport and storage, which made them ideal for ‘roadshow’-type campaigns like this. Rather than design them ourselves, in this case we used a design provided by ITV.

Green Flag Wales

Green Flag Wales do a great job campaigning to keep Wales tidy. We are delighted to help them in their efforts to raise awareness of environmental concerns with boards like this:

And we also made a Summer-themed board for Keep Wales Tidy which we designed ourselves with a few humorous touches:

Fuller’s London Pride

This one was for the 2018 London Marathon, the hottest on record. No doubt more than a few pints of London Pride were quaffed after the race, especially with this board to remind them to imbibe!

This is a one-hole board with the left and right faces already printed. A good photo opportunity at the London Marathon!

Experiential Marketing with photo cutouts

Are you promoting a business, brand, or cause? Then you might have heard of experiential marketing, also known as event marketing and engagement marketing. The Content Marketing Institute listed it as the number one most effective marketing tactic in a survey, with 72% of marketers saying it was the best.

So what is experiential marketing? Quite simply, it is involving the public in experiences that involve the brand. Rather than just telling them your brand is fantastic, experiential marketing gets them interacting with it themselves and developing a personal bond. Your product or cause becomes a part of their lives.

Photo cutout boards are a simple but effective example of experiential marketing. Instead of remote, detached hoardings and banners, photo cutout boards are designed to be interacted with. When a couple of people poke their faces through and take a photo, it personalises their relationship with your brand and sticks in their memories. The photo is also a permanent reminder of your brand. And they will quite likely share it on social media so others will see it too.

We have sold hundreds of custom-made photo cutout boards to brands big and small for use at promotional events. One thing they always say is that the boards helped drive more people to their trade stand or increased the number of people stopping for a free sample or to sign up to donate.

Design is very important for a photo cutout board to be effective. Our team of in-house designers will look at your brand and come up with ideas of how to get its central message across in an image with face holes. We work with you until you are happy with the design and make sure the placement of logos, hashtags etc is ideal.

Then we print it in full-colour high resolution onto durable, weatherproof PVC board which is attached to sturdy metal feet.

We’ve also thought about practicalities like transporting the boards to and from your events. We’ve now added a new option to our range – the folding photo cutout board! It is like a regular board except that it folds in half for easy transportation and storage. So there you have it – the ideal, portable experiential marketing prop!
