CTG Printz Printing Services the Message is King

Your Design Represents your Brand with CTG Printz Printing Services

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Print advertisement is an integral part of Traditional Tri-Media advertising (television, radio, and print media.) Digital marketing on the other hand caters to a different audience, mostly those who are hooked online and to people who prefer “paperless”. Social Media’s driving force realistically competes with TV ads. Nevertheless, print advertisement and the rest of the traditional media will remain superior and will continue as the main visual messenger for consumers. It has proven its effectivity in terms of marketing strategy among brands. This kind of services will never run dry I suppose, from every corner of the main road to the alleys, modern buildings to shanties, big names in the merchandise industry to a small-scale sari-sari store, all of them compromise the beauty of advertising elements.

Take for example CTG Printz Printing Services, a mere fresh player in the printing industry. Entrepreneurs like Clarivel Tee Girang saw the need as well at the business potential of putting up CTG Printz Enterprise in 2013. She started from Customized Designs on shirts that caters only to clubs, organizations or groups using Silkscreen Printing and Digital Printing using Heat Press machine. By 2017, company growth and the business flourished. The printing services were able to generate clients and continuously trust them in the quality of the services and production capabilities.
