You, your print needs, and Ciconi
Everything that bears your organisation's name says something about your brand. That's why every printed document should reflect your commitment to excellence. Leaflets, personalised mailings and brochures must all work hard to express your values. That is why great print is not an option, but part of your success.
At Ciconi, we help you to build and protect your brand. We treat every print project with professionalism and respect, working tirelessly to create and deliver results that make a difference. At the end of the day, we know it's never 'another print job'. It's a matter of trust between us, your organisation and your values.
Ciconi print services: any volume, every requirement
Fast, flexible and responsive
Digital printing, in full colour or mono, is a desktop-to-print solution that's ideal for low- and high-volume tasks. Typical applications include data sheets, leaflets, flyers and brochures. Whether you need a result in a hurry, or just a few copies, it is the technology of choice. And, because it incurs none of the time or materials overheads of traditional lithographic printing, it is also a cost-effective tool in the marketing portfolio.
Digital printing offers all the quality and speed benefits of modern output technology, allied to the power of advanced IT. It supports quick and intelligent processing of every project, and is the perfect partner for your marketing database. It enables us to insert variable and personalised content in every document, generating impressive response rates from your contacts.
We will help you to decide when to use digital printing and how to optimise performance. We will work with you to determine the balance between speed, quality, budget and benefits, so you achieve maximum marketing impact and the best return on your investment.
Versatile and reliable
Inkjet printing is the first choice when your priorities are low cost and high volume. It excels in repetitive tasks and can cope with a wide variety of media. Choose inkjet printing whenever you need reliability, value and speed.
In our experience, inkjet printing offers unique benefits in envelopes, letters, addressing, overprinting and barcoding. It can operate in either mono or colour, at tens of thousands of items an hour. It's the workhorse of campaign execution and has a part to play in any high-volume marketing and communications project.
We are highly familiar with the performance and potential of inkjet printing. We will work with you to build its performance and versatility into your projects, for maximum impact and value.
Variable data printing
The ultimate in focused communications
Variable data printing enables you to change content in every copy of a mailer or other publication. Allied to an intelligent database, it makes print highly personal. You can include each recipient's name in a publication, and tailor the content to match your analysis of the reader. This powerful technique can help your organisation to stand out in today's busy marketing environment.
For commercial organisations, variable data printing can make a significant, measurable improvement to sales and brand recognition. Non-commercial organisations find that they build deeper, longer-lasting relationships with their contacts. Response rates invariably increase. For even better results we can enrich the personalisation stage using additional information from your records, such as graphics, illustrations and other content. This additional data dimension can further enhance the success of every campaign.
We have some extremely powerful tools and techniques that will enable you to make the best use of variable data printing. The data skills of our staff are some of the finest in the field. We work with manufacturers and software houses to stay at the leading edge.
Print on demand
Your print, when you need it
Print on demand is a quick, clean and logical approach to document handling. It leverages the efficiencies of high-speed printing and competitive distribution networks. Print on demand eliminates the need to pre-print in bulk and hold stocks. Instead, you tell us what you need, we print it, and deliver it.
Print on demand makes your money work harder. You tell us how many copies you need, when you need them, and where. We do the rest. Never again will you tie-up your money in stocks of brochures, then pay more for the space to store them. Your customers and contacts will receive the same excellent response, and you will never have to scrap outdated stocks again.
Over the years we have fine-tuned our print on demand system to make it slick and sophisticated. Whether your priority is cost-effectiveness, better communications or brand enhancement, we will help you to plan and manage the best approach.
The results you want, at the right price
A good print manager specifies the print requirement, sources a reliable provider, supervises the project, controls the budget, and ensures that quality is maintained. For some, it is a routine service. For Ciconi, it's part of our culture. We regard it as an extension of your business and part of your brand process. That's why we do it so well.
The keys to our success in print management are our account managers. These professionals bring many years of experience to your projects.
