What is variable data printing?
Variable data printing (VDP) is a form of digital printing that connects with the recipient on a 1-to-1 level. VDP accomplishes this by changing the text and/or images on each piece that is printed. This creates a truly unique experience for the recipient every time. As the name states variable data printing is driven from data to create this unique experience.
NextPage has been using variable data printing since the dawn of the tool. Seriously, we’ve been doing VDP for our clients for two and a half decades –25 years. We started with HP toner based printers, advanced to HP Indigo liquid ink digital presses and then for the right application use the HP T200 Inkjet Web. Each step expands our ability to serve the needs of our clients.
Our collection of equipment includes the fastest and most high-tech hardware and software enabling us to produce personalized marketing for multiple channels. Need VDP for your direct mail marketing? You came to the right place. NextPage can help you target the right people at the right time, with the right message, on the right page.
Benefits of Variable Data Printing(VDP)
Traditional VDP drives response rates 3-10 times higher than traditional (static) direct mail campaigns.
How? The answer is Personalization. Personalized direct mail that uses unique content specific to each recipient captures attention and drives a response. Speaking to recipients personally, using text, imagery and offers customized to their specific needs and desires, triggers an emotional response.
Let NextPage deploy your next traditional VDP initiative and you’ll experience:
-Improved order sizes
-Decreased cost per response
-Increased repeat business
Advanced VDP crosses into digital platforms yielding true 1 to 1 campaigns.
It’s evident that traditional VDP yields results. But imagine what happens when you take personalization to the next level. NextPage can use your data to create:
-Highly-relevant Personalized URLs (PURLS)
–Personalized QR Codes
-Unique tracking phone numbers
-Targeted web advertising touch points
