Printers becoming aware of opportunities to expand business with short runs of direct mail and envelopes, with early adapters capitalizing on opportunity by using inkjet technology to satisfy short run need, says Printware president
ST. PAUL, Minnesota
November 19, 2013
– Printware (http://www.printwarellc.com/), the leader in prepress and digital solutions, announced the availability of a new paper for printers looking to invest in short-run four color envelope and direct mail production entitled “Economic Study of Inkjet Technologies in the Print Industry.” An Executive Summary of the study, as well as a download of the complete study, is available on the iJetColor website at www.ijetcolor.com/study.
“Printers are becoming aware of opportunities to expand business with short runs of direct mail and envelopes. Early adapters have already capitalized on this opportunity by using inkjet technology to satisfy the short run need,” commented Tim Murphy, President of Printware. “Our customers were able to quickly see how an iJetColor Press complements their print shop’s existing operations by adding a high performance, low cost digital inkjet press to further enable personalized short run color printing.”
The study outlines the quick ROI that can be achieved by most printers who decide to invest in an inkjet envelope and direct mail solution such as the iJetColor Press from Printware. The investment can be recovered in only 12 months if the printer produces a monthly average of 10,000 envelopes.
“For small print runs (<1000) transferring from offset to digital inkjet technology will be beneficial. Printers traditionally expected their ROI to increase as a function of volume, but capacity has disrupted this model,” commented Murphy. “The IJetColor Press can help create higher margins and technology and training that will bring additional value to printers.”
