Why printing? The ways Prisma Graphic can help your company prosper.

Why printing?  The ways printing helps your company prosper.

 Prisma Graphic  At one time or another we all have taken printing for granted. Perhaps because print has been the world’s number one communication medium for so long, we tend to overlook its impact and power. That oversight could be detrimental to the success of a marketing campaign, a product launch or a branding initiative trying to make connections. Consumers trust print, feel comfortable using it and are unable to fast forward past it. Electronic content comes and goes and when it’s gone, your message disappears with it. Print, on the other hand, is there for the long run.

 According to a recent survey by the Magazine Publishers of America 24% of readers will pass along an interesting article to someone else, 23% will save it for future reference and 13% will visit a relevant website; giving advertisers double and triple bonuses on their marketing investments.

This magazine is dedicated to the persuasive power of print and how it continues to evolve and play an important role in the marketing mix. Along with several informative articles throughout, we have included the advantages of using print. We hope you find this blog informative, inspiring and ultimately beneficial to your marketing efforts.

 Sincerely,

The Prisma Graphic Team

Making the Most of Marketing Dollars, Planning and Prepress is key.

Making the Most of Marketing Dollars, Planning & Prepress Addressed

Although it seems fairly straight forward, there are many decisions leading up to and within each print project that directly affect its bottom-line and overall impact. Proper planning and specific attention to detail can save thousands of dollars. Working with a reliable and knowledgeable print solutions representative is a great start; a partner willing to provide practical solutions to make the most of your marketing dollars.

 The options to save during planning are endless with a little creative flexibility. And, below are just a few examples.

 Removing bleed on an 8.5 x 11 flyer allows for 10, rather than 8, to print at a time and on the same parent-sized sheet; paper is normally 30 to 50% of the total job cost.

 Think about using a self-cover format for multiple-page products. Removing the heavier cover eliminates the cost of an extra press form and may allow the project to fold in-line; every off-line process adds to the bottom line.

When preparing for a direct mail project consider the following:

•            Processing the mailing list(s) in advance will establish the actual quantity needed and potentially reduce waste by 7% or more.

•            Sticking to a maximum finished size of 11.5 wide x 6.125 tall, and staying under 3.3 oz, can save roughly $0.12 per piece in postage; a $2,400 savings with just 20,000 mailers.

•            Fugitive glue dot closures can be applied during the folding process for a small set-up fee, while the wafer seal application adds $17 to $20 per thousand in each direction; new USPS regulations require closures on all “open” sides.

 Once the final specs are established, a second place to prevent additional costs is in the final file set-up and content review stages. Utilizing each software application correctly and carefully reviewing projects before file release are critical steps in this process. Below are just a few examples of ways to retain cost controls.

 Using a document size larger than the actual trim size of the piece, forgetting to include 1/8″ bleeds or building multiple-page products in spreads, rather than single pages, can all add considerable time and costs in to the prepress process.

 Correctly specifying inks, throughout software utilized, has never been more important. Using PANTONE’s COLOR BRIDGE® profiles to establish your 4-color process builds will ensure color accuracy and avoid second and even third rounds of color proofs. To download free support tools, including the latest color libraries and PANTONE® Color Bridge Tutorials visit www.pantone.com. You will be asked to create a user account, then you can click on the “helpCenter” in the menu bar to select the “Color Library Updates” page.

 Running a quick spell check and having an “outside” set of eyes review the overall content, before final file release, will also help avoid costly mistakes. Discovering grammatical and layout issues beforehand will help to keep projects on track and on budget.

 To find out more about minimizing costs or about proper file set-up, please contact a Prisma Sales Representative, or Kyle Cardinal by calling 800 379-5777 or emailing  kylec@prismagraphic.com.

Solution-Based Printing and Marketing Partner

Prisma Graphic Corp.  When you are searching for a solutions-based partner, look no further than the Phoenix-based commercial printer, Prisma Graphic Corp. Prisma proves to be more than just a print vendor on a daily basis, by exceeding its client’s marketing needs from their 82,000-square-foot facility.  Prisma provides pre-press, remote proofing, digital and one-to-one marketing products, a unique web-to-print solution (dokshop.com), sheet-fed and web printing, a complete bindery, a full-service fulfillment department, in-house mailing services and a secure warehouse area.

 “I think our people have been the key to the success of this company,” says President Bob Anderson. “They’re innovative, they’re customer driven and they care.”  When Anderson bought Prisma in 2000 it was a small, boutique print shop, struggling to keep the doors open.  Seven years later, it has become a $23 million business. “Naturally, with this kind growth, I am very proud of our people and the work we produce.” 

 The shop’s 115 employees work in one of the hippest and most efficient shops around town, not to mention one of the greenest. Prisma was Arizona’s first, privately owned, web and sheetfed printer to become certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).  FSC certification promotes a chain of custody that ensures good forest management and overall sustainability.  Prisma’s internal philosophy of “lean manufacturing” eliminates waste and improves the efficiency of value-added activities that maximize their customers’ satisfaction and ultimately their budgets.

 “Clients are trying to narrow down their vendors to a select few who understand their needs,” Anderson says.  “They’re looking for print partners that can advance their overall marketing efforts, which is why we consider our company more of an information handler.”  Prisma has solutions for short- and long-run projects, has the ability to handle thousands of online orders a month, can provide website analytics, offers data collecting and usability and can produce personal URL direct mailers, just to name a few.

 Contact anyone at Prisma, or better yet their president, if you are ready for a solutions-based partner.  “I’m a working president,” says Bob Anderson. “I’m always out visiting with customers to help in their success.  I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
