Hinderliter, Monmonier Lead New Dot Com: e-Solution for the Forms Industry
Press release from the issuing company
Tucson, Arizona - PrintWholesale.com, an internet-based service for the quotation and production of products relevant to the forms industry, took advantage of this fall's IBFI (International Association for Document and Information Management Solutions) meeting to announce the launch of a funding initiative for this timely new enterprise. During a period when many wholesale forms manufacturers and independent distributors are struggling with declining sales, PrintWholesale.com (PW) is being introduced as a service that can increase their customer base, grow new sales, improve productivity and reduce overhead.
The vision of Ted Monmonier (President), a print professional with decades of experience in the forms industry, PrintWholesale.com was developed to leverage the traditional relationships already established between wholesale print manufacturers, independent distributors and end-users, while enhancing these relationships through the application of innovative technology and centralized services.
To manage the launch of this exciting new enterprise, PrintWholesale.com has retained the services of Hal Hinderliter (Managing Director), an internationally known consultant and author with more than two decades of experience in the graphic arts industry. He is well informed of the challenges inherent to launching a new internet-based start-up, due to his experience as Director of Supplier Services for the collaborative print solution Impresse.com as well as his previous role as the Director of the Center for Imaging Excellence at the Graphic Arts Technical Foundation.
PrintWholesale.com, headquartered in Atascadero, California, provides a unique opportunity for today's leading wholesale print manufacturers to join together in a geographically-diverse network dedicated to delivering exceptional value. By becoming one of a limited number of participants, these manufacturers will share in the development of new technologies and new markets that will assure their future success. PW is pleased to announce that they have signed their first investor; a wholesale print manufacturer from central California.
Manufacturers who choose to participate in the PW network will be able to introduce their distributors to this innovative and highly efficient e-commerce service. The manifestation of this manufacturer network is the PrintWholesale.com Service Bureau, an on-line digital production facility providing instant quotations, customer service, preflighting, proofing and imposition services. These distributors can place a browser-based interface to PW on their existing website, or have a basic website created for them by the PW Service Bureau. When a distributor's customers order products through the PW system, both the distributor and the manufacturer profit.
More than just a highly efficient way to quote and order printing, PrintWholesale.com will offer the very best selection of related items (such as ad specialties, checks, labels, envelopes, security printing and office supplies). For those manufacturers who choose to participate, PrintWholesale.com will become a lifeline to the future a future in which traditional processes can and must co-exist with new digital technologies, including e-forms, database management, variable data printing and XML integration.
PrintWholesale.com is actively seeking investment. For more information on this exciting new venture, contact PrintWholesale.com at 805/591-6090 or at www.printwholesale.com.
