Elections are usually called with only 6 weeks notice, and so time is always critical in developing and producing your printed materials!
At Printing Brisbane we print lots of materials with incredibly short turnaround times, and have a number of graphic designers on call to help you produce your best materials!
Of course, these don’t just apply to government elections – body corporates, companies, organisations, even schools, P&C associations, and sports clubs hold elections that can use these items.
Election material checklist:
Corflute signs – usually 600mm x 900mm (approximately A1 size), corflute signs and banners are a great way to get your message out there in a space with high traffic. They can come with holes predrilled to make it easier for you to attach to fences or walls. Always check your local council rules as to how many you can display in your area.
Vinyl Banners – great for hanging on a neighbourhood fence or at a sports ground, vinyl banners work well in all weather conditions and can come with holes reinforced with eyelets to make it easier to attach them.
Pull up banners – great for promotion of your key messages on display in shopping centres or train stations or standing beside you on a stage. Lightweight and comes with a carry bag.
Media walls – great backdrops for photo ops – these are wide walls with your logo or message printed on a fabric banner that fits snuggly over a metal frame. Washable, foldable, ironable, and comes with a carry bag.
A Frame signs – lightweight and stylish black A frames, comes with 2x 5mm corflute signs 600x900mm – great for footpath traffic visibility!
Promotional products like pens can be an awesome reminder for people as well something that will get used and seen by lots of people.
Posters – posters come in a range of sizes and finishes, and can be placed anywhere from community noticeboards to rotating signs in shopping centres
Flyers – a handy DL size or trifold flyer is a great way to get your message out to your community, and makes it easy to slip inside a letterbox or pigeonhole. These can be regular paper or choose a glossy paper stock for greater impact.
Letters and Envelopes – a personally addressed letter and envelope
How to vote cards – well these can be either an A4 flyer or a DL flyer or even postcards for extra durability.
Ballot envelopes – we print a range of ballot style envelopes that can be used for your election. Envelopes with extra long flaps, perforrated sides to make it easier to remove the papers inside, envelopes lined with a pattern to keep the contents extra secret, sequential numbering on envelopes.
Worried about the environmental impact of all your flyers and posters?
It’s a factor whenever you order printed materials, and at Printing Brisbane we work with our printers to ensure that the majority of our products have their green credentials.
It’s commonly known that items such as envelopes, letters, how to vote cards and the glossy flyers can all be placed in the recycling bin. But did you know that our corflute signs and banners can also be recycled! They can easily be folded and placed in the council recycling bins.
Some vinyl banners can also be recycled, let us know if this is of interest and we can show you our range.
We also have eco friendly inks available for almost all printing.
At Printing Brisbane, we have you covered for all your election printing. Feel free to contact us to discuss your options.
Different city and regional councils have differing rules on the number and size of signs permitted. Here is a quick list of different areas:
