PERSONALISATION PLUS PRINT FROM A SINGLE SOURCE
High quality laser printing, inkjet printing, digital printing and litho combined with cutting-edge mailing
There’s no longer any need for the complexity and expense of separate print services. Instead, why not opt for efficient mailing combined with print services of uncompromising quality? All in one single order.
Digital printing is perfect for low-volume runs. It also has the option of personalisation too.
Digital print has very specific mailing advantages:
• Only the exact quantity required is printed, keeping wastage low.
• Designs can be changed with ease. This means that it is easy to incorporate multiple design versions into a project in a cost-effective way.
• More formats can be accommodated than laser printing which is flat sheet only.
• If extra copies are needed after the main print run digital print is good for easy, quick to produce, low cost run-ons
• When compared with litho printing has a low per unit price for short print runs.
Digital printing is a good choice for smart, professional short run print. Digital print can be generic or personalised.
Inkjet printing is a versatile process for printing address data onto a wide range of material.
Booklets, thick card and a range of sizes and to some extent, shapes can be addressed by inkjet. Silk and even gloss media can also be personalised.
Addressing envelopes is the most common personalisation that inkjet printing is used for. High quality HP inks give a professional finish.
The new M1 inkjet printing technology provides brilliant colour and also enables artwork to bleed right up to the edge. This means that the cost of short run full colour envelopes is now within budget reach. M1 colour inkjet also has a superior print quality compared with traditional mono. The quality is so good that it is comparable to laser printing.
Message on an envelope
Colour inkjet printing can help to emphasise a message on an envelope. Because inkjet is a personalised process, messages can also be made unique to each recipient.
Messages don’t have to be written words. They can also be variable pictures. Variable image printing is a clever technology that personalises each envelope by image as well as text.
Free of charge quality samples are available by emailing email@example.com For standard black inkjetting ask for A1 mono and for superior colour inkjetting ask for M1 full colour.
Laser printing provides a high-quality, highly personalised option that is ideal for letters and single sheet stationery. High-end Xerox and Lexmark lasers print crisp text and images onto from A6 to A3.
Laser print is commonly used for making up financial reports, functional informational booklets and simple flyers. The most popular laser print use is the letter format. In addition letterhead can be produced at the same time as text printing. This is very good for cost savings and waste reduction on small print runs. Moreover, the two in one process is much faster than printing letterhead separately and then personalising on top with an overlay.
Laser printing has the flexibility to include extra personalised variables as well as address details at no additional cost. Some letters have complex financial, personal or business details to be added.
As with all personalised print, PDF Proofs and Job Plans are sent to clients for approval to amend or proceed. Account Manager’s are on the look out for author errors. It can be easy for simple typos to slip through. That’s why they’ll let you know if anyone notices potential mistakes in your laser print copy.
There are no charges for making amends and reproofing.
Lithographic printing is a top quality print process that has been the traditional workhorse of printing services. Using computer-to-plate technology, modern litho print produces consistently beautiful print.
Printed items that are regularly litho printed include booklets, leaflets, flyers, mailers, folders, newsletters and postcards.
More creativity with artwork is possible than ever because the choice of print comes in a range of formats with optional finishes.
Litho printing remains the best choice for quality and cost for longer print runs of generic items.
