If you own a small business, you know that it can be an incredibly rewarding yet challenging venture that requires balance, especially if you’re working remotely. In fact, according to a survey, achieving work-life balance is the most important habit to cultivate to be successful in that environment. Luckily, you don't have to do it all on your own. Companies like Office Depot support small business owners year-round with products and services to help them build and attract customers, maintain day-to-day operations, save time and much more.

Check out these five services that small business owners can leverage to help empower their success:

1. Copy and Print Services

According to a recent survey by OnePoll on behalf of Office Depot, female small business owners said that next to cash grants (38%), marketing materials (29%) would have helped get their business off the ground. With Office Depot's print services, you can create and print marketing materials like business cards, presentations, labels, stickers and more.

Additionally, if you need indoor or outdoor signage printed, you can choose from a wide selection of custom business signs like yard signs, flags, floor decals, magnetic car signs and more. Simply upload your designs or choose from templates and tailor them to your business using a variety of colors and sizes. Several pricing options are available, so you can choose what works best for you and your budget.

From flyers announcing special deals and seasonal products to brochures advertising special events, it’s simple to create professionally designed materials that stand out and help you connect with your customers. Best of all, you can design as many options as you’d like, and you only pay for what you print. Visit officedepot.com/print to get started.

4. Shredding and Storage

Don’t let your documents be a liability for you or your customers. Safe document storage helps you preserve the information you need and frees up space, while proper shredding services can help you destroy documents you don’t need, plus you can feel good about having them safely recycled.
