I will not be using another printing service in the future since I have certainly found the best one.

Mimi B. Delos Therapy
In the case of our situation, we had to reprint a block frame adhesive poster. We had sent the original out for the installation along with a PDF file. The associate in charge of my order made me aware that the print was not the same color as the original and allowed us to get a revision. I was worried we would be charged extra for the faulty file and misprint, but the associate was understanding and thoroughly communicated all steps of the process from the pickup, installation, and delivery.
Anthony H. MiQ

I have used Alpha Graphics for work and knew that when I needed some items printed for my own wedding they were the group I trusted for the job. The Alpha Graphics team were not only able to meet my tight turnaround time for delivery but did a fantastic job! Even when we had a hiccup that the file types I sent wouldn't print properly, they quickly reached out and were very helpful to find a solution.

WHY DIRECT MAIL STILL WORKS
My least favorite thing to do besides laundry, is to check my mail. While I walk past my mailbox every day, I always forget to grab it on my way in. Then for some reason, once I’m inside, it seems like so much effort to put my shoes back on and go back and get it. I don’t get a lot of mail, I get most of my bills electronically sent to my email. However, I sometimes get formal letters from companies regarding updates to their privacy terms or a statement of my accounts. Some information is best delivered in the form of written communication.
We recently worked with a private investment firm to do a large mailing to all of their clients. They had a list of about 2,000 contacts that needed to receive a formal letter along with a comprehensive marketing piece. The client drafted the formal letter and provided us with a spreadsheet of names and addresses. Our design team merged each name onto the letter before printing. After we printed all 2,000 letters we had to fold it together with their marketing piece and stuff it into envelopes. Once those were stuffed and sealed, we took the same merge list from our designer and printed the individual address onto each envelope.
Because the client had such an extensive mailing list, the United States Post Office allows us to do a pre-sort in order to get cheaper postage. A presort basically scans the mailing database and removes any addresses that are duplicates or undeliverable. It will also give us a report that indicates any records that have been forwarded and corrects it with the new address. This helps the client keep their database the most up to date.
Our client really wanted their letter to look official and tell people that it contained important information. I suggested that to make it look more official they print the letter and send it using their company stationery. When each of their customers receives that piece of mail, they will immediately know who it’s from and that it’s most likely highly important information.
AlphaGraphics Chicago Northcan help you manage your customer database and help you get your message out in the best and most effective way. Whether that be a simple postcard mailing, a formal letter or official company newsletter. Contact us to discuss your next mailing and fulfillment project!
UNIQUE, TARGETED CONTENT TO YOUR TARGET CONSUMERS
Don’t you just love getting mail? We do too! But, would we also be correct in guessing that junk mail can have the opposite effect? Yeah, that goes for your customers too. Sure, you have to communicate with your customers. It’s a vital part of continuing to grow your business, but you can’t keep sending out junk mail to everyone. Direct mail solves that problem and creates a direct connection with your audience by using targeted messaging aimed at drawing your customers in, not pushing them away.
Direct Mail is one of those things that everybody thinks they do, but no one really does well. It’s more than just merging a spreadsheet into a pre-designed flyer. It’s about systematically changing the way you communicate with your customers and potential customers by creating unique content catered to the helpful information you’ve taken the time to get. It’s about making sure that what they are reading helps them feel like someone took the time to find out what was most important to them.
And most of all, it’s really about ROI. Because you need a solution that actually works and is worth the time and money you spend on it. Direct mail has response rates that rival most other forms of marketing out there often getting 20%-30%. That’s huge!
At AlphaGraphics Chicago North, we have the years of expertise in working with direct mail. We have worked with some of the biggest business in the city to carefully develop effect direct mailers that really work. For us, it’s a labor of love, and we work with our clients from start to finish to strategize, design, print, send, track, and analyze a direct mailed piece. With us, you really have it all!
