Unique Advantages of Very Popular Print Media

Apart from newspapers and magazines, there are other print media channels such as billboards, direct mail, brochures, and other specialty ads. Read the following post to learn about its advantages and disadvantages in our lives.

The print media is considered to be one of the most flourishing industries today. This medium is also particularly very popular to reach target audience, on a global basis, for advertisers. The different types of print media give a plethora of options for people to reach a varied bracket of users.

So, every medium has its particular advantages, a thing which should be considered to be of utmost importance by all advertisers and clients.


  • Both media outlets―magazines and newspapers―have a loyal readership. This can be very useful for advertisers as compared to gaining loyal customers or advertising on the Internet.
  • If you are targeting a particular geographical area, you can do so with ease. For example, a local newspaper would be a best medium to advertise about a new shopping complex.
  • You can choose the size of the advertisement space. This will help you to plan the budget of the exact expenses to be incurred while advertising.
  • With loyal customers, comes the possibility of word-of-mouth marketing or advertising.
  • Magazines and newspapers are always in the eye among the public. Magazines are read for a period of a month, which brings more attention to an advertisement.
  • You can even advertise through brochures or leaflets depending upon your target audience. If the information is in detail, a brochure can prove to be an apt option. A leaflet, in that case, would be useful for a brief message or introduction of the organization and/or services provided.

Environmentally friendly resorcinol-formaldehyde-free adhesive systems for textile-rubber composites

Technical textiles deliver solutions for a wide range of applications such as reinforcements for mechanical rubber goods (MRG) and composite materials. The surface of reinforcing fibers and in particular the interphase between the fiber and rubber matrix is essential to meet these challenges and specific requirements. Resorcinol-Formaldehyde-Latex (RFL) chemistry is at the core of textile reinforcements for the application in mechanical rubber goods such as tires, timing belts, hoses and air springs.

Due to regulatory issues, formaldehyde has been recently classified as carcinogenicity category 1B substance and according to the EU commission regulation No. 605/2014 these new legal obligations apply to producers, importers and downstream users. As a result of this re-classification, mixtures containing free formaldehyde contents of 0.1% or more are required to be labelled as carcinogenic i.e. H350, as they may cause cancer. Since Resorcinol is also in focus, there is therefore an immediate need to look for alternative cross-linking systems for technical fiber reinforcements in the field of MRG.

New markets for technical textiles

Technical textiles made of high-performance fibers are currently being rediscovered as reinforcing materials for structural elements subject to high stress. Here carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics will be particularly prominent in the materials of the future. Experts expect the automotive branch to be the largest driver and thus the principle future market for carbon fibers. However, current use is still dominated by prepregs (pre-impregnated fibers), so that the predicted “Automotive” growth scenario will only come to pass if the cost of carbon-fiber-reinforced components drops significantly and the potentials for cost savings are leveraged to the greatest extent possible.

Since these savings potentials are primarily found in use of materials and in the component manufacturing process, it will only be possible to realize these tangible ecological and economic effects as forecast in large-scale industrial series manufacturing of this type of component. This makes it absolutely necessary to develop new textile machines as a central unit in new manufacturing processes for semi-finished textile products and preforms, also with regard to intelligent hybrid components in multi-material design.

By consolidating the individual areas of expertise of the member institutes, they intend to represent the entire textile value creation chain, from the textile machine to fiber production, manufacture of preforms/semi-finished products, textile functionalization, Smart Technical Textiles, process and product simulation, all the way to fiber-reinforced composite components.

Changes In the Print Media Industry

Technology continues to change our industry… and now it has changed forever! Microchips, the Internet, and new printing processes have accelerated changes to the print media industry and we have a decision to make.

The decision before us is “Am I going to ride out as long as I can the traditional print model” or “Am I going to look at the new opportunities in our industry and drive my business into the future?”

This is really a “how long do I want to be in the industry” question. For those of you interested in moving into new products and services generated by the microchip, the Internet and new printing processes , I suggest two areas for you to follow.

Digital Print Media Technologies. Our industry was born with Gutenberg, which evolved into letterpress, and later offset as the primary printing process. But now digital is going to become the dominant print process. We could debate this, but most certainly, more digital presses will be sold than offset in the future. Digital print allows a customer to print small quantities of highly targeted pieces on substrates we never dreamed we could print on in the past. Think about what that means to your customer: Short runs, highly targeted, many substrates.

Electronic Media. The Internet is powering new forms of digital communications that were not even thought about just a few years ago. From email marketing and PURLs to QR codes and PDF files, you have more tools at your disposal to bring new creative solutions to your customers. A recent study showed that print buyers are now buying 14 percent of their purchases on the Internet and print media service providers predict that will grow to 50 percent in the next few years. We can provide greater service than ever with these electronic media tools.

Technical Textiles Are Driving Industry Growth | Apparel Magazine

All the pundits at major shows around the world share a common perception about the global textile industry: that its future growth will be driven by technical textiles. Indeed, technical textiles have become the most important driver of growth in the textile industry. This perception was shared by many experts at the shows.

Technology is the underlying force that is transforming the industry from its conventional to an increasingly digital character. New software solutions, processes and technologies used in garment and leather manufacturing are top of mind at textile trade shows worldwide.

But it is not just the conventional applications of textiles and apparel that are of interest to both the industry and the consumers. The applications are today proliferating, limited only by designers’ imaginations. For example, technical textiles used in the highly-specialized aerospace industry are now being contemplated for consumer applications.

What Are the Advantages of Print Media Over Electronic Media?

Many companies reject print media advertising, believing the digital age has given way to more efficient forms of marketing. But comparisons between print media and electronic media have shown that print media provides many incredible advantages. Magazines, newspapers, leaflets, and catalogues are more effective at targeting customers and making a lasting impression. Here are some of the advantages of printed media over electronic media.

Advantages of Print Media vs. Electronic Media

20180424Can electronic media replace print media? If you ask brands like Ikea or Williams-Sonoma, the answer would be “no.” These companies derive a huge part of their success from their catalogs and print media. Flashy magazines with vibrant photographs will always be popular among consumers and they’re very effective at grabbing readers’ attention. Additionally, print media is generally an easy and affordable medium to advertise with and effectively spreads awareness within a specific geographical area. You can target your demographic more easily with print media by doing research and delivering your catalogs right to your prospective customers’ mailboxes. Print media allows for easy budgeting and expense management as well.

As for electronic media, although it has a much wider reach and allows for greater flexibility, its results still do not compare to the quality customer relationships you can gain from using a print media strategy. Electronic media does allow businesses and retailers to use pictures, animations, and even 3D imaging to market their products or services, but it comes at a cost. It is actually much more affordable to set up a print marketing campaign. And the profit you gain through targeting the consumers most likely to buy your products outweighs the investment.

Important Types of Print Media

There are three main important types of print media: newspapers and articles, magazines and catalogs, and books. Newspapers and articles are delivered in a frequent and regular manner, and they can be presented attractively to create interest in the reader. This form also provides accurate and authentic information about current events locally and worldwide, related to various human-interest topics like health or entertainment.

Magazines and catalogs go deeper into a particular topic. They can feature stories, interviews, research, or analysis to provide the reader with more details about a specific topic. Unlike newspapers, which provide information on several topics and categories, magazines focus all their content on something specific and provide in-depth research and information about it. Some topic examples include fashion, technology, gaming, interior design, and fitness.

Thirdly, print media can come in the form of books. These can be considered a form of cultural heritage, encompassing scientific reports, history, and literature. Whether it comes in the form of textbooks, adult literature, or storybooks, this form of print media is a great way to target people who still enjoy taking their time and going through an entire book about a topic. Biographies, history, and self-help are some of the categories of this type of print media.
