    I have a situation that I'm encountering for the first time but I'm sure you guys have some experience. I am doing a mail merge for approximately 1000 letters. The letter is 1-2 pages, the following the letter will be a third document that needs to come from another tray. First two pages: Tray 1 Third page: Tray 3 If the documents are all printed individually, this is no problem. But when doing a mail merge it sends the document to the printer as a single document. Therefore when I select a "back cover" it will only do so on the very last page. Is there a way to get around this?

The technology allows to create a 3D object 100 times faster, than the existing methods, from a reservoir of liquid resin. The technique is called continuous liquid interface production or Clip.

    Venture Management Consultants doesn’t have a sales force. Never has. When John Murphy started the executive management and training firm in 1988, the former Notre Dame quarterback envisioned a company that could not only inspire and lead change, but also deliver customer value in a way that was better, faster, easier, supported creativity and at a lower cost than any of his competitors. The lack of a sales force was an interesting concept for a new company. Murphy’s game plan was to create a business model that would provide the kind of customer service that would prompt his customers to…

    Using color and imagery to drive engagement is critical in today’s hyper-connected, hyper-engaged world. As a marketer you have milliseconds to engage the viewer in your message. Reports indicate that 65% of the population is visual learners. I wasn’t able to find the exact reference point as in these days of internet proliferation; it’s difficult to find original sources. With that said, I think this statistic is relatively close. The key here is that the brain processes images and concepts fast. According to MIT Researchers the brain processes an image in just 13 milliseconds. The…

    Recently I turned 50.  The whole year prior, I spent planning a big party in which I could ring in a new half-century in style. I pondered all the things I could do.  I booked a caterer, thought about the guest list and who might attend.  Then with 6 months to go, started having friends put it on their calendar. I felt ready to announce to the world I was turning the big 5-0.  But then a little more than a week before my birthday, I realized the entire world of big data had already been anticipating me turning half a century old. A week before the big event I received my invitation to…

    This post was contributed by Kelly Quinn Mallozzi, RainMaker, Success.In.Print and speaker at the 2015 Print Leadership Summit, May 18-19 in Minneapolis, MN. It’s hard to believe that 21 short years ago, when I got my start in sales for a small digital print shop, my sales tools were a desk, a landline, a pager, and my resourceful brain. No cell phone. Certainly no smart phone. And a shared computer that only had access to the company’s database of accounts wasn’t in the picture. I called companies that I thought might have a need for printing, and if they did, I would get an…

For more information about the National Buying Power Program with Caliper, visit www.printing.org/caliper. Managers and leaders share many similar qualities, but the performance of a manager carries far fewer risks than the performance of a leader.

Busy reading the media coverage and separating hype from reality. Busy downloading and trying out new apps I learned about. Busy following up with contacts.

    High Quality Printed Booklet Helps to Convey the Automaker’s Brand Promise by Ben Rutter I recently attended the Portland Auto Show, an event that brings car manufacturers and dealers from across the Northwestern U.S. to advertise their goods. As a teenager, I was of peripheral interest to the busy salespeople on the show floor. Nobody figures a 17-year-old kid is going to be able to afford a new Subaru. I was left to my own devices to wander around the cars and pick up sales material from racks and tables. What struck me about the process was the importance put on print. As always, human…

    By Roberto Blake “Presentation isn’t everything, it’s the only thing…” If you’ve never heard that quote before, it’s because it belongs to me. Your customers won’t get far enough to know whether your website or product works properly, fits their needs or has a great user experience, if they are immediately turned off by the packaging. Visual Branding and Design is something you should never underestimate. Form matters just as much as function and from a sales and marketing standpoint it matter more. In the same sense that you would not show up to a meeting or a sales pitch…

    There’s no escaping it: campaigning for the 2016 presidential election has officially begun. Although the election is one year and seven months away and two major parties have only four candidates thus far, those four candidates have spent years building up their reputations and solidifying their positions. But despite all the work they’ve put in and the sheer variety of issues they address, one of the real challenges is truncating those positions into easy-to-remember slogans and eye-catching logos. The role of design is often underestimated in politics. When done right, it can…

They seem to have unlimited supplies of energy, their small size allows them to get into areas you can’t, and the more of them you have around, the more exhausted you’ll be by the end of the day.

    “Politics makes strange bedfellows” is a quotation from famous White House correspondent Helen Thomas. Today’s post breaks a personal rule never to write about politics in a blog post, but the proposed legislation is so fascinating and potentially important for the printing industry that I can’t resist reporting about it. Please accept this request for forgiveness, if not permission. HR 997, the English Unity Act of 2015, isn’t a new piece of legislation. It’s been submitted before by Representative Steve King (R, Iowa), but it usually dies in committee. The thrust of the…
