Engaging Your Audience One at a Time

Variable Data Printing

Variable Data Printing (VDP) is changing the way that individuals, organisations and businesses are communicating with many of their internal and external audiences and Mail and Print have been for the past decade at the leading edge of how your data and marketing collateral requirements can be linked together.

VDP allows one for changes to be made to the text, images, charts, and other digital objects as the item is being printed. It creates individual documents for individual customers and offers a degree of personalisation that increases response rate and relevance.

Variable Data can be used to create a range of personalised marketing communications and other useful media.
