  • What is variable data printing?

    Often shortened to VDP, variable data printing is a digital process that allows companies to customize their advertising materials and tailor them to the customers who receive them. The idea behind it is to increase open rates and connect with recipients on a more personal level.

    VDP allows for certain text, graphics, and images to be customized during a print job without slowing down the production. This is often used for sending letters to customers when a personal reply would be appreciated, or for sending out invoices. It can also be used for direct marketing to consumers, advertising, and the addressing of items such as postcards and brochures.

  • The crux of catalogs

    Many people, when they think of a catalog, might have something like the Sears publication in mind; a picture book that allows people to order items from the comfort of their own home. Catalogs, however, can be so much more than that.

  • Brochures are a versatile form of advertising

    There are many different designs of brochures that fit every kind of use. Some of the most well-known designs incorporate folds such as half, tri, single gate, four panel, Z, accordion, roll, and the die-cut ‘Z fold’. As the name signifies, the half fold is a piece of paper folded in two and used for simple presentations, while the Z variety consists of two folds resulting in six surfaces – often used in direct mailings. The die cut, on the other hand, is partly cut away to reveal what is printed on the other pages, and is typically a favorite at trade shows.

  • Wedding invitations – what role does print play?

    In terms of printing techniques, letterpress is currently the most popular form of creating wedding invitations. The print is usually indented and raised very slightly, and it is typically used for more traditional looking invitations printed on bulkier paper, such as that made with cotton fiber. To print these invitations, a metal plate is carved, set by hand, and pressed into the paper. In most cases, it only uses one or two tones and is usually printed on lightly colored paper. Due to the care and precision involved, the process can take from two weeks to two months.
