Minimal Text, or a Wall of It
Unlike advertisement for television, people do not have to sit looking at the ad page but just skipping past it to the article they want to read. The goals are to get the viewer to stop, view the ad, and remember the message. To do that, your text needs to get people’s attention right away.

Lots of Eye Candy
Print ads don’t have the motion and sound that television ads get to work with – they really need to make their space count. A striking image is great at catching viewers’ eyes, but since it’s an ad, it needs to have all the required text crammed into the composition, as well. Because of this, print ads often make images out of type or make words out of images. Flashy special effects are also good attention grabbers.
Visual puns are a great device for saying a lot with just one or two words. They are ideal for print ad requirements to say everything in one still image. Commonly, visual puns say part of a familiar phrase or proverb, then complete the pun with the materials and special effects.

Being a Little Offbeat
With the number of ads that have already been made, originality is hard to come by. One solution is to make progressively weirder and more dramatic work. If an ad idea seems too weird, consider that the weirdness might make it memorable to others. Making a lasting impression is what every ad strives for.
No matter what type of print ad you need to create, you should consider typography as an essential element of the ad rather than just text.
