Scratch-and-sniff

Scent coupons, scent cards, scented DM's and more...

Scratch and sniff cards provide additional attention value to printed matter in today’s competitive consumer market. Research by Sanoma indicated that scented scratch and sniff (or rub and sniff) cards and advertisements resulted in the increase of 36% of product purchase, whereas the repeat sales numbers after the first purchase increased by 18%.

Scent the Brand is specialised in the following scented printing matter:

  • Scent cards and leaflets in all shapes and sizes
  • Scent coupons
  • Scented direct mailings
  • Scented packaging
  • Scents in newspapers (through heatset and coldset printing)
  • Scent in (glossy) magazines
  • Scents in books 
  • Scent stickers (also on packagings)

The most commonly used printing technique for scented print is sheet fed offset. Scent the Brand uses top notch Heidelberg printing presses with up to 10 ink ducts. This enables us to print up to 10 different scratch and sniff (rub and sniff) scent surfaces per side. 

Scent cards and all of our other scented printing matters are safe from as well a consumer perspective as from a production point of view. Pure perfume is being encapsulated on water bases until it forms microscopic droplets. The scent is only being released when pressure is being applied to the scent spot by scratching or rubbing. Scent cards can stay intact for multiple years.
