Variable data printing is a form of digital printing or on-demand printing that involves changing the graphics, texts, or images piece by piece. In simpler terms, each piece (physical or digital) is different from one another in regards to the recipient. This method is beneficial when you have a diverse membership or group of donors and want to address each recipient differently.
There are many ways to interact with customers, such as through promotions, newsletters, social media, and of course direct mail. One more “intimate” strategy for interacting with customers / members is one-to-one (or 1:1) marketing.
Before starting on a new print or mail project, you’ll want to determine which printing methods best suit the task. Selecting the best printing method can be decided based on the quantity of pieces you need to print, the format and information on each piece, and of course the style or “look” you desire.
Keeping the lines of communication open with your members is not just essential—it’s part of how every non-profit does business. Often, that communication is focused heavily on members. After all, members already have the “buy in” most non-profits are looking for. Communicating with non-members, however, can be an unanticipated challenge.
