• PrintPlace Takes On Environmental Responsibility

    Arlington, TX, December 19, 2008 – PrintPlace has established a sustainable printing process to minimize waste and reduce harm to the environment by using vegetable-based printing inks and chlorine-free, certified paper stock. With respected news outlets like the Wall Street Journal and The New York Times touting how to protect the environment, coupled with President-elect Barack Obama’s stated intent to curb global warming emissions, going green is clearly at the top of Americans’ minds.

    PrintPlace is doing its part for the environment by using vegetable-based inks reduces the amount of VOCs (volatile organic compounds) released into the air during printing. VOCs have been known to be harmful to people, animals and plants.

    PrintPlace also uses chlorine-free paper reduces the production of toxic chlorinated organic compounds, including chloroform, which is a known carcinogen. These compounds are released into waterways as part of the bleaching process, doing environmental damage to the aquatic environment.

    This paper is certified by either the Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). Both organizations promote responsible forest management and protect natural habitats around the world.

    PrintPlace also recycles all paper waste and uses plastic substrate that is 100% recyclable. It uses 100% recyclable shipping cartons and packs those cartons with 100% recyclable material.

    But its printing process isn’t the only system being optimized for the environment: three-phase lighting provides power savings of up to 50%. And PrintPlace’s carbon footprint has been dramatically reduced by utilizing three shipping points across the United States so that shipping originates from the closest location to the recipient, reducing greenhouse gases.

  • Solutions to Reduce Postage Rate Costs

    Arlington, TX October 29, 2007—The direct mail services industry is making strides in adapting to new postal rates and regulations. Clients and vendors are working together to devise solutions to the challenges associated with postage rate increases faced by the many types of organizations which utilize direct and bulk mail. These solutions include rethinking graphic design, focusing on creating highly targeted mailing lists, and using full-service printing-and-mailing companies to save money and time.

    Lisa Hoffman, Director of Mailing Services at PrintPlace, a fully automated online mail house, says that making simple design changes to direct mail pieces can significantly reduce postage rates, which can be prohibitively expensive to even large companies. “We recently saved a Fortune 500 company nearly $80,000 per year in postage by reformatting their Employee Benefits newsletters to folded booklets, which mail at reduced rates.” This type of solution is being used more frequently by all types of industries, including non-profit organizations. “PrintPlace is stepping up to the challenge of meeting our clients’ direct mail needs by working closely with them to optimize results in the most economical ways,” she went on to say.

    Another way companies are saving money is by reducing costly mailing list errors. “List cleaning” or “list hygiene” is a method of removing bad addresses in mailing lists. Fewer bad addresses mean savings to every company. Furthermore, direct mail houses like PrintPlace are offering their clients the opportunity to create lists which are specifically targeted to demographics. Marketers can create direct mail lists based on geographical locations, gender, marital status, and any other number of pertinent factors.

    Political candidates and parties can also benefit from direct mail services. Directly mailed postcards, brochures and booklets are a time-tested and effective way for campaigners to reach voters. The United States Postal Service charges Standard Rates for these customers, but treats the mailers as First Class instead of Standard if they are are appropriately postmarked.

    Lastly, more and more consumers are utilizing turnkey online direct mail services like those offered by PrintPlace.com. By purchasing graphic design, printing, finishing and mailing services over the Internet, consumers can save time and costly shipping fees that will be incurred when these services and products are done by separate vendors.

Their staff of customer service, color and printing experts is dedicated to helping consumers acquire the highest level of services and printed goods available through the internet.
