There are lots of print ad examples to choose from on the Internet. However, since we have discussed text and image design in our previous post, we might as well provide you print ad examples that make use of text, image, or both as their designs.

A reminder about print ads: their design depends on your target audience, the message you need to convey, and the print medium.

Images as your print ad design works best when used on large format prints like posters displayed at high traffic areas and intended for audiences who are usually in a hurry. If you require lots of space to write down your marketing message and handing them out to a target audience, then using text on your catalogs, inserts, and booklet printing is the way to go .

However, there are print ads that need both elements to maximize their effectiveness, which will be showcased in this roundup of print ad examples to help you decide on the design approach you’ll take on your print marketing campaign.
