How customised printing can help your job search

If you make it to the interview stage, it's always best to conclude with a thank you

As the population worldwide continues to grow, more and more people are fighting for the same selection of jobs. This means you have to do whatever it takes to mark yourself out from the crowd to potential employers – being creative could be the difference between getting the job and not.

This is where affordable, customised online printing comes in. Spend a short while browsing at, and you’ll see a wide selection of printed items that can help you make the difference in your job search. Here are a few ideas to get you started.


A brochure is a highly useful way of providing your potential employer with a snapshot of previous work that you have done. Use it as a small, portable portfolio of sorts. Employers are busy people and being able to easily browse your work in their own time through a custom-printed brochure could be the extra boost your application needs in order to be successful.

Business cards

You never know when opportunity will knock – you could be joined in the lift by your next employer and strike up a conversation. When opportunity arrives, you need something lightweight and portable that has your contact details on it, to be able to provide at a moment’s notice. Business cards can also be handed out at employment fairs and shows to potentially interested employers.


Sometimes the best way to find work is to let it come to you – do this with a well targeted and eye-catching flyer. Put together a snapshot of who you are, what your skills are, and what sort of work you’re looking for. You never know who is going to see your flyer, and by seeing it you will have already proven to your potential employer that you have drive and initiative.

Compliment cards

If you make it to the interview stage, it’s always best to conclude with a thank you. Remember to do this with a compliment card – make sure it thanks the interviewer for giving you the opportunity, and reiterate how much you’re looking forward to the opportunity of working with them. Put your contact details on it, to ensure they can always contact you as easily as possible.
