Hi Barb,

I fully agree with you. Also in Europe print-catalogs have become highly targeted. Eversfrank's entire technology, including machinery, is designed for the demands of innovative one-to-one marketing. In hybrid printing, we combine the variability of digital printing with the cost-efficiency of offset printing. The personalised covers of catalogs are therefore printed digitally; the identical inside pages come from offset. They are then brought together on the saddle stitcher.

If these catalogs are to be sent fully addressed to the end consumer, it is also possible to personalize them per recipient ? through to specific next best offers on all cover pages.

Please feel free, to use our graphics from our website: http://www.eversfrank.com/en/one-to-one/graphics/

That's, what I told Cary Sherburne at Hunkeler Innovationdays

Best greetings from Germany
Gerhard Maertterer
Director One-to-One Marketing at Eversfrank
