Brochures are a good way to let people know your business exists. They can be easily be handed out and passed around. The overall cost is nominal for any size business and brochures that briefly state the business services can help increase sales dramatically. For a more vibrant effect you really need to use full color brochure printing.

This was a very informative article, thanks for posting. I have come to know that postcards are the most efficient form of print advertisement due to the fact that they are small (4X6 usually) and easy to carry around. Also now a days there are so many online printing websites that offer a very cheap easy to swallow price for printing thousands of full color postcards. The only part of these websites i dont like, is they are usually cheap but make there money of the exorbinate shipping & handling, or charge you an arm and a leg for fast turnaround. If you dont go with the faster turnaround time they will usually ship to you within 2 weeks which is not feasible at all most of the time. I found an amazing online quality company online that prints all i need for very cheap prices and the NORMAL turnaround time is usually 2-4 days. If you need it faster , they didnt charge me that much extra. For the benifit of everyone on this site, check it out if you need Postcards, Business cards, Flyers etc... Printed
