Our TakeawayAmidst the decades-long pronouncements and prognostications that all forms of communication will, by now, be mostly digital, Powur’s use of presentation folders is proof that some things are still better in analog. Indeed, as a medium, printed items connect better with our brains, thereby making it easier for your recipients to absorb, accept, and recall your message.
