Every day people go through dozens of promotional letters and junk mail from various companies and organizations and most of them are used to just getting the junk mail out of the mailbox and throwing it in the garbage without even taking a look. This is why sending promotional letters for advertisement is becoming less effective and people and advertisement agencies are turning to more attractive and effective tools such as door hangers.

Suppose you go back to your home in the evening and when you try to open your front door, there is a colorful and attractive pamphlet-looking hanger hanging around the door knob. This hanger seems similar to a ‘do not disturb’ sign that you put outside of your hotel door when you don’t want to be disturbed.

Design tips for Printable Door Hangers:
Size of the Door Hanger:
When it comes to door hangers, it seems that each size has its features and while small sizes work for some people, some people also recommend using bigger sizes to fit more information as it has worked for them. It’s safe to say that there is no standard size of the door hanger that you can follow but keep in mind that just because there is no standard size, it doesn’t give you the right to make a door hanger so big that it becomes a triple fold brochure.
The shape of the Door Hanger:
The same rule goes for the shape of the door hanger. There is no set standard for the door hanger. Some people recommend using a rectangular shape while others think a round square or even triangle can also look very attractive and professional. The key to success here is that the overall shape of the door hanger should match with the idea that you are portraying on it. If you have an extra budget, you can experiment with different shapes to check their response or you can stay safe and use a recommended shape i.e. rectangle.
Handle Slot Shape and Size:
For this card to become a door hanger, it has to have a slot to be inserted on the door handle. Some people use a small hole at the top of the card with all the written content at the bottom while some also use the slot in the middle and the content goes both at the top and the bottom. The most frequently used design is that the slot should be at the top with the paper slit from the middle of the hole to the left of the hanger.
Theme and Color Scheme:
Keep in mind that the basic purpose of using a door hanger is to market your product brand or service on a limited budget. Using high-quality ink and expensive and bright colors might cost you extra money but using a dull-looking design can result in a failed campaign. Somehow you need to find a middle road here where you can still use bright images and colorful graphics but still keep it affordable so printing bulk quantities won’t cost you extra.
In the end, here comes the most important part of a door hanger; written content. If you are using the door hanger to advertise a product or service, the hanger should include all essential and required details regarding the product. If you are asking for something i.e. community service, a clear action plan i.e. who to contact and how to contact for feedback should be mentioned on the hanger.
