Last year 7 out of 10 Australians read their favourite magazines – in print. We flipped through $2 billion worth of catalogues, and 90% of us said we preferred receiving tangible mail over that delivered from a digital or social media source.

Today, print is still an important cut through tool in any marketing campaign. It’s tactile, personal, and unique. And by introducing special finishing, binding or embellishment options, marketers can enhance their creativity and improve their response rates.

Whether you’re targeting an individual, a suburb, or an entire state, Printcraft has the capacity, equipment and know how to ‘get it done’. And with state of the art colour management technology the first sheet will always look like the last.

Producing over three and a half million double sided colour impressions a week, your campaign is in good hands.

digital printing

Printcraft digital is a department dedicated to short run digital printing and signage. Our operators are trained in colour management and prepress and stand by the belief that short print runs should never be an excuse for poor quality.

 

OUR DIGITAL PRESSES

HP Indigo

The Indigo press is synonymous with quality when it comes to digital printing. With a liquid ink it’s the closest match to an offset look and feel that you will get in the market. Newer machines, like Printcraft’s HP Indigo 7500, also have a few extra tricks under the bonnet. White ink, and a clear raised varnish to add an extra ‘tactile’ dimension.  

Xerox Igen

If the restrictive sheet size on your ‘average’ digital press is stifling your design, it’s time to take full advantage of our new Xerox iGen 150. This machine produces an EXTRA large sheet opening up a world of possibilities with landscape books and presentation folders. Throw in its ground breaking colour management system and sharper screen rulings and your creativity will know no limits.

 

PERSONALISATION

Ever considered personalising your print? Because of the direct transfer process in digital, every sheet can potentially be different, either with variable text or variable images. Campaigns featuring personalisation often stand out from their static competitors and see higher response rates. Variable Data Printing (VDP) is one of the often overlooked benefits exclusive to digital.

AUTOMATION

Web2print is the time and cost saving solution for today’s busy marketing team. Ideally suited for digital printing Printcraft’s PIVOT platform can drive static and dynamic artwork templates directly to the press.

There’s a lot to know about digital printing so don’t be shy in asking our advice. Check out tips on sheets size, paper stock and finishing in our article on What is Small Format Digital Printing.

SUBTLE ELEGANCE WITH RAISED PRINTING

For all of you printing old timers out there, verko, or raised printing, was the ‘in thing’ of the 80’s. Along with leg warmers and really bad perms, I remember business cards galore being ‘glammed up’ with this painstaking production technique. But for those of you who loved the tactile look and feel of it, there’s an alternative technique from some of the newer HP Indigo digital presses.

a little bit different

A custom, or SELF MAILER, is a postal item without an envelope.

With glue, folds and a little ingenuity, a mailing piece is printed, personalised and finished so the document does not require an external carrier. But delve a little deeper and you’ll discover that self mailers can also be used as an effective integrated communication tool, replacing the traditional direct marketing pack of a brochure, letter, return envelope and outer carrier.

Options can also include perforated coupons, unique bar codes and numbers, personalisation and the automated attachment of cards and passes.

On design alone, even non-personalised self mailers attract more attention and gain a better response rate than the usual direct marketing pack.

It’s the only way to make your postage dollar count.

But just remember, self-mailers are a unique item – so production requires specialised equipment and staff. In fact, Printcraft is the only Brisbane supplier with all of these resources on hand.
