NEW ITEM! Synaps Paper

Synaps paper is tear proof!

 

Banksville Express Printing now offers Synaps which is a synthetic paper product that is very durable.  Lamination has historically been the best way to protect your printed material such as menus, maps, posters, bookmarks, prayer cards, signs etc. Unfortunately, over time the lamination can separate or dog ear leaving an inferior product which is especially true of menus due to the constant use.

Synaps synthetic paper is the perfect option to lamination due to its durability and serviceability. It is a waterproof, tear proof plastic that allows our print technology to combine with the paper creating a much more durable product with a professional image quality. It is printable on both sides, can be scored and folded and wipes clean with soap and water. Hard-to-clean stains like red wine can be removed–we suggest using Folex spot remover.

Print is ever changing and evolving–contact Banksville Express Printing and evolve with us!

How to Surf the Changing Tides of Social Media

It is a confusing time for social media. It seems like every day, new and conflicting reports come out about the future of different platforms. Is Facebook a sinking ship? Or is it simply being used by a new demographic? Is Instagram the new thing? Or should you be using Snapchat?

In addition to all of the ever-changing buzz, Facebook has recently switched up their algorithms. If you’ve been watching your business’s page, you’ve probably noticed a big decline in the number of people your posts are reaching.

So how do you navigate the tricky waters of social media marketing? These three rules will help you stay afloat:

1. No matter where you’re posting, make sure what you’re posting is worthwhile.
The changed Facebook algorithm punishes posts that simply recirculate content or ask for likes. On all platforms, think about what would be valuable to your customer and consistent with your brand. Try to create interesting and original content whenever possible.

2. Pay attention to numbers and followers.
The number of “likes” or followers you have isn’t the end all be all, but you should know who you’re reaching and how often. Analyze the success (or failure) of each post and tweak accordingly. This will also help you be more responsive to user engagement.

3. Diversify.
Rather than abandoning Facebook for Instagram or devoting all of your time to Vine, try to build community on multiple platforms in a way that makes sense for your brand. This requires you to really get to know each platform, its capabilities, and who it reaches. If you don’t put all of your eggs in the Facebook basket, your marketing won’t die if the platform suddenly goes the way of MySpace.
