A Strong CTA
There’s no question what this door hanger design is trying to achieve. What’s more, the overall design creates a minimalist look, so it’s easy to locate the most important information: CTA, contact info and company logo.
Frame Your Content
If you have a lot to say, framing it with a simple border is an easy way to draw the eye in. In this case, this design element also allows the door hanger to mimic the style of a listing you might find in a newspaper or local magazine—boxed in, with an image, important selling information, and home description.
Add Movement With Icons
Bring order to your door hanger, making it easier to read and understand, with icons. This door hanger design allows the reader to quickly understand the most valuable aspects of the home with just a quick glance. To do the same with your designs, browse the many icons available in the MyCreativeShop editor and find the ones that are best for your text.
Pay Attention to the Little Details
This campaign door hanger design is the perfect example of how a small element, like the blue stars, can tie the whole design together. While the imagery and colors used are already patriotic, the addition of the stars ensure every detail, including the image itself, speaks to the story they’re trying to tell.
Have Fun With Text
It’s important to maintain consistency with your font in all print materials—using just one or two fonts at all times. However, switching it up for headlines and smaller text details, can make your door hanger distribution more impactful. This handwritten font is called DAMEL and adds the perfect element of fun throughout the entire design.
Start With a Question
The simplicity of this door hanger design allows the unique headline text—a question meant to immediately engage the reader—to stand out. Have fun with your headlines in a similar way, allowing you to draw potential customers in right away. In this case, using a question gets them thinking about a product they may not have thought they wanted.
Use More Images
You never want to clutter your door hanger design with images—unless the imagery is relevant. In the case of this design, pictures of cute puppies are relevant to their services and will undoubtedly appeal to all dog owners.
Use Seasonal Colors
Who doesn’t love curling up by a warm fire, in cozy slippers, during the holiday season? The red used in this design immediately brings you into the season, and elicits the emotion that comes with memories of enjoying a similar moment, making it more effective. This design uses a red overlay on the image to match the red color block below, something that’s easy to replicate yourself using MyCreativeShop.
Include Familiar Imagery
One of the first things that come to mind when you think of painting is the familiar color palettes that you flip through at the pain store. Take advantage of associations like this to draw the reader in right away. In this case, the imagery also matches the name of the company, “Rainbow Painters,” which makes it impactful on multiple levels.
Use a Full Length Image
Instead of using a single image in a sectioned area of the door hanger, choose one that runs the full length of the design—front and back. With a simple overlay box, which is easy to add to your design with the MyCreativeShop editor, you can make sure your text still stands out.
Incorporate Incentives Into Your Design
This design gives the homeowner a reason to hang it on the fridge—$300 off a project of $500 or more. To ensure your door hanger gets seen, and gets the reader to act, design it to provide immediate incentive. You can even perforate the coupon at the bottom so it can be ripped off and redeemed in-store.
Keep it Simple
You don’t need images to design a door hanger that people will read. Instead, make your text stand out with a solid background color that matches your brand. Just make sure your text color contrasts the background color so it’s easy to read.
Use Social Proof
Don’t just use a testimonial on your door hanger. Instead, make it more personalized by referencing work done for someone nearby. This provides you with an instant referral—since it’s easy for the potential customer to ask their neighbor about you. Not to mention, a hand-written note makes your door hanger campaign feel more intimate and less mass produced.
This door hanger template tells the reader what to do with one simple design element—an arrow. Anyone reading is then encouraged to interact with the door hanger, turning it over to find more information. Don’t assume the reader knows what to do. Instead, make it easier to find all the important information by simply providing direction.
Connect With Potential Customers
Your company mission statement says why you do what you do. It also allows you to emotionally connect with potential customers. Integrate your mission statement into your door hanger design to develop an immediate connection.
