Stationary design is a crucial step when you want to have your branding showcase a specific message across your company and employees.
The purpose of stationary design is to develop a consistent branding across the office and even outside of the office as well which is usually done through employee gifting and by other methods.
If you’re new to stationary design and want to start it for your company or perhaps you’re a designer yourself and wondering what’s included in a stationary design package then this post is for you.
What Is Included In A Stationary Package?
It really depends on which package you’re opting for. Stationary design package can include many things including but not limited to:
- Writing Equipment (Pens & Pencils)
- Paper Bags
- Office Supplies
- Business Cards
- Tissue Box
- And So On.
Most probably you don’t need that much branding if that’s the case sticking to just envelopes, business cards and letterhead is more than enough.
We also encourage investing in digital email signatures as it’s just a one-time investment and will stick with you forever. The beauty of it is whenever you shoot an email to your employees there will be your company logo attached to it with other essential information like phone number, address and so on.
Think of it like a digital version of your business card.
What’s The Cost For About 12 Items?
Stationary branding is mostly done via mockup designs you don’t get overly charged. Most 3rd world country freelancers will charge anywhere between $100 – $200 for almost everything mentioned above.
This is not quite a lot if you compare to the 1st world countries.
But still there are brands like us (LogoBravo) who are willing to do the work at minimal cost possible so both remain in a win-win situation.
Why 12 items though can’t it be more? 12 items is because we’ve never seen a company exceeding 12 stationary items. Most of the companies stick to 3-7 items at most.
Is QR Code A Part Of Stationary?
Traditionally, it wasn’t a part of the stationary design however as almost everything is going digital this too was lately adapted as part of the stationary design so many of the current stationary design sellers are also incorporating digital assets like QR code and email signature as part of the full package.
Wrapping It Up
Now you know about what is included in a stationary design package so plan ahead and decide what you really need and what’s your total budget.
The more additions you’ll make to the package, the more you’ll be charged.
If you’re just starting out and you’ve no experience running a company we recommend sticking to just digital designs like email signatures and QR code for better return on ROI.
Because the rest of the items are a continuous investment for the long run. If you see the company is doing well then you can decide to take the next step and invest in more stationary options.
