What Printing Types do you offer?

Broadly, we offer two types of printing service through our sister company, Washington Direct Mail Limited (WDM):

  1. Lithographic Printing - this direct mail printing process is best used when you are sending out substantial volumes of the same printed items (ie: letters, generic postcards, flyers, etc.). Basically, the larger the volume of print-run, the lower the cost per item.
  2. Variable Digital Printing (sometimes called Personalised Digital Printing, or Variable Data Printing) - this direct mail printing process is best used when you can personalise each and every printed item. Personalisation increases response rates and can be achieved using the MyOpenData search criteria. Costs for variable digital printing are 'by the click' like a photocopier, so the volume doesn't matter because each printed item costs the same.

Remember to bear in mind what you want to achieve when you decide what type of printing you require, increased responses, or lower costs.
