Multisensory Special Effects with U.S.-based Suppliers | H&H Graphics

From the shutdowns around Chinese New Year, to the uncertainty around trade wars, to the paperwork and logistics hassles, managing an overseas supply chain wasn't easy even before COVID-19 threw it into disarray.

With tariffs cutting into the equation by which some overseas manufacturers tried to justify the complications or differences in quality,  the idea of a U.S.-based supply chain was already becoming a lot more attractive.

And while there is nothing simple about moving a supply chain, in the print market, you don't have to look far to find an abundant supply of materials and services for creating first-rate packaging and promotional materials.

We know, because we've been doing this for a long time and we work with an array of U.S. suppliers who enable us to provide our clients with one-of-a-kind, high-quality and cost-effective promotions that use extraordinary special effects to create extraordinary ROI. We use U.S.-sourced materials for our multisensory projects, including glitter, chromic inks and more.

Is it just our imagination or do the beer and wine aisles get bigger and more crowded by the minute?

How does anybody choose a bottle of cabernet anymore? Or a craft beer? A bottle of scotch? You could do your research of course. There are 10,000 varieties of wine grapes, while a popular beer website has 300,000 beers listed. Of course, even if you know exactly what you're looking for, you still have to find it. 

The truth is, most of us have a much easier "system." We look at the label. From beautiful artwork to provocative names, to labels that just stand out, catching our attention from their perch on a crowded shelf, there are few places where consumers are as likely to judge your product by your packaging as the beer, wine and spirits aisles.

Smell anything good lately?

Chances are you remember more than the smell – you remember how it made you feel.

The connection between your nose and your mood is a well-established fact of psychology and marketing. Scent can trigger a deep sense of association that drives behavior, and drives sales.

And speaking of driving, we were pretty excited to learn that our multisensory work on a recent campaign was the subject of an Ad Age magazine “Editor’s Pick” for its clever use of “new car smell” in a newspaper advertisement for Liberty Mutual car insurance.

You might not be consciously aware of it, but music, scent and other sensory features can draw your attention and entice you to engage with a product you would have otherwise overlooked.

That's an important edge for retailers in an environment where consumers are bombarded with choices and messaging screaming for their attention.

Whether you use glitter, scent, texture or a form of hidden messaging reveal, special effects printing enhancements expand the reach and impact of your marketing budget.

Social media can have a similar impact. When you strike a chord with the right audience on a social media platform, your messaging can take on a life of its own. No one loves the unveiling of a cool new thing as much as the social media audience.

Combine special effects printing embellishments with a social media campaign and you've leveraged two powerful forces of consumer engagement.
