Many of us, if not all of us, have either received various types of mailers, or we are part of an organization that distributes mailers as a form of marketing or advertising. Variable data printing provides the capability of customizing mailers. What does it mean to customize a mailer? For starters, it means personalizing the mailer. It could be as simple as having the name and address of the individual resident. It could be a personalized message saying, “Hi, Fred. Pay attention! This message is for you.” On a more involved scale, you could advertise your veterinary clinic with a photo of a cat for cat lovers or a photo of a dog for dog lovers. The key to variable data printing is creating content that is personal and individual to grab the attention of the viewer.

Have you ever wondered how the process of creating and sending mailers has evolved? Think of it this way: If you wanted to create a personalized mailer unique to 10,000 different people in a target audience, you can’t possibly write that many names by hand. The only economical and efficient way to do that is by using a digital printer with variable data capabilities. A picture is worth a thousand words, right? With variable printing, you can easily customize the image or photos based on whether or not the mailer is going to a male or female, old or young, athletic or not. The possibilities are endless! We know your target audience can be pretty narrow, so variable printing is the ideal way to change photos depending on any of these demographics.

You can target different ages, genders, religious beliefs or even certain hobbies they might have.
