A customer called yesterday. They had to mail 100,000 letters in two days, by law. The mailing house could get the letters printed (personalized) and stuffed in time but the envelopes they had in stock had my customers first class mail permit. Since these could mail with a presort standard permit, the postage savings would be huge. They asked if we could somehow produce 100,000 envelopes with their presort standard permit so their mailing facility could get the letters out in time.
It’s pretty darn hard to produce 100,000 envelopes in two days, especially when your production schedule is full.
After a few phone calls, we performed our first miracle of the year for this customer and will have the 100,000 envelopes produced and delivered on time, saving them over $10,000 in postage.
That’s what we do.
Several years ago, Xona Resort Suites of Scottsdale came to us looking to spruce up their Guest Check-in Packet. The resort had just completed a multi-million dollar facelift, including the redesign of their logo.
Xona’s initial thought when they came to us was to have the Guest Check-in Packet placed within a three-ring binder (turned and sewn leather/leatherette), a similar look that many hotels and resorts leave for their guests in their rooms. Though this approach is oftentimes bland to the guest, it can also be a costly endeavor.
Jason Kaller at Greenway Print Solutions had another idea for the resort that would not only include a packet that was appealing to the resort’s guests but would compliment and reinforce their brand. Instead of the boring three-ring binder, Jason suggested they create a mini two-pocket folder using Silk Laminated cover stocks, four-color process printing and Spot UV coating. Plastic hotel key cards, property maps and guest identification tags for luggage were all created to go with this package.
Each piece was strategically designed and crafted to compliment the new corporate brand as well as to improve appeal and functionality of the piece. With this new look and innovative display, Jason was actually able to save them money over their original idea using the binder. And the quality of pieces were much higher because we used better paper, more color and upgraded the finishes. Xona was able to implement brand cohesion and because the pieces were of a higher quality, they were extremely durable and could be reused over and over again.
