Direct mail today is becoming increasingly complex. Messaging needs to be personalized and targeted with good use of high-quality color. But run lengths are getting smaller as versioning increases.
How do you create a cost-efficient workflow to meet these needs plus maintain quick turnaround times?
The answer for Darwill, a family-run direct mail firm in Hillside, IL that specializes in delivering custom, complex marketing communications, was the Océ ColorStream® 3900 with Océ PRISMA® software for a complete end-to-end digital color inkjet solution. The ability to output 50,000 8 ½" x 11" pages per hour in a single inline workflow with great color management led to the elimination of pre-printed shells and all the related time-consuming activities involved in a more conventional workflow. Now they print directly onto blank rolls and finish into a cutsheet form. “We’ve got an energized sales team that is excited to chase new business that fits our new capabilities,” says Mark Pageau, VP of Sales for Darwill.
