With Digital Printing, Change the Image or the Message

Posted: July 31st, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Bindery, Mailing | No Comments »

Printing a digital based image through a digital print engine, a production caliber inkjet or laser printer, is called digital printing.  It requires no film and no plates, and therefore, the cost of setup is minimal.  This lets you print very small quantities at low cost with very short turn-around time.

In fact, because there are no film and no plates, the output can be modified easily, allowing you to personalize the text or vary the image. With variable image printing, change the image on your printed piece; with variable data printing you can change the text. This way you can personalize every brochure or direct mail piece that you print. Use unique images for different clientele or use the same images and or change the message or salutation.
Digital printing at Blue Hill Press is the ideal solution for direct mail marketing or projects that require personalization.  Black-and-white or full color, we offer a cost-effective alternative to offset printing for your short-run needs without compromising print quality.

When you need to make a great impression with your digital prints, contact us.

Your Customers Reuse Plastic Bags in Their Homes

Posted: July 30th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

As a buyer of t shirt bags or plastic bags for your business, don’t be confused by the hype about reusable bags and paper bags.

Plastic bags have many uses and they are used over and over.  Think about your household and how often you re-use the plastic bags from the grocery store. We reuse these bags when we need to carry things, we use them for storage, we use them for shoes in suitcases or in sports bags, we use them as lunch bags and we use them when we walk the dog.

There are many households that bring home purchases in plastic bags and hardly ever throw them away until they have had significant use.  Grocery stores, clothing stores, gift shops all use plastic bags for purchases, and your customers are using those bags in their personal lives. It's amazing how many uses there are for plastic bags.  

They are convenient, durable and, when reused, safe for the environment. Contact Atlantic Poly for more information on plastic poly bags for your business.
