Custom Cover Pages for Your Reports

Paul King
September 2, 2021

Think of all the asbestos survey reports you've read in your lifetime. How many of them left a lasting impression?

Helping You Stand Out

In our recent State of the Asbestos Industry Survey, 36% of asbestos surveying companies said that increased competition or a slow down in work was the most significant risk to their business.

With the asbestos industry being more competitive than ever, having a handsome report can help you stand out from the competition, so you win and retain more work.

So how can you transform your (possibly rather dull) report into an attractive and eye-catching document that will impress your clients?

You start with the first thing your clients sees, of course, the cover page!

Why Have a Custom Designed Cover Page?

Firstly, let's consider the effects of a 'poor' cover page. A poor cover page may give clients an impression of a poor report, even if the report content is good.

Unfortunately, most asbestos surveying companies fall into this trap. They rush their cover page and assume that good report content alone will prevail. Or they compromise on their report quality because of the limitations of their asbestos surveying software.

By neglecting their cover page, surveyors often miss out on the opportunities that a well-designed cover page offers. A good cover page will:

  • Re-enforce your branding.
  • Differentiate you from competitors.
  • Make your reports unmistakeably your own.
  • Demonstrate your credibility with accreditations or testimonials.
  • Advertise any other services you offer.

But You're Not a Designer?

Now, chances are, you're not a design expert.

And the idea of coming up with a swanky cover page like the one above probably has you scratching your head 🤔 (it makes my head hurt even thinking about it).

And that's ok. After all, you didn't get into asbestos surveying for your skills with a pencil. I can't imagine many asbestos surveyors also moonlight as designers.

But this skill shortage offers an opportunity too. Since the overall standard of cover pages in the asbestos industry is relatively low, it doesn't take much to make your cover page stand out.

Cover Page Design Service For Flow Clients

Hopefully, I've convinced you of the advantages of investing in a good cover page by now. And you've realised that it's probably best to leave design work to the professionals.

Now, cards on the table, at Flow we're no designers either. We have enough skills to get by, but software development is our true forte.

That's why we've teamed up with Paul Scurrah at THAT Branding company to offer our clients a cover page design service. Here's a photo of Paul surrounded by white space - after all he IS a designer. And designers love that, right?
