What makes a perfect press pack?

Press packs should include a relevant press release, background on your company and good, appropriate, captioned photography. It is important to bear in mind that journalists will be interested in news stories, so brochures and other sales materials alone are not suitable. Ideally all the information should be contained in a clearly labelled folder, CD or USB.
