Say printing 1,000 copies of a 4 page brochure costs you $1,800. If you need to change something, you will have to throw away unused brochures and spend another thousand dollars to print them. Our mobile app brochures cost only $2,500 to make with unlimited distribution, and you get to put videos and make it interactive as well. Need to update an address or an info within the app? No need to pay thousands of dollars to get this done. Changes like this go as low as $25.
