Denver, CO and Dublin, EIRE - Snap have partnered with Quark, a worldwide leader in graphic design and publishing technology, to bring a new online design, print, and marketing service – called MyDesignbySnap.ie – to the Irish market.
Built on the Quark Promote platform, MyDesignbySnap.ie is an online design and print marketing service that allows customers to choose from thousands of templates for business cards, brochures, postcards, posters, flyers and much more. With a couple of mouse clicks users can select colour themes, add logos and images, add business information, and send their customised designs to a local Snap centre for printing. The design tool is FREE to use and a test print is included in the service. Customers are charged only when they place their print order.
This is a great "Irish" solution – it's designed to give customers an excellent design and print service and to compete directly on price with the big international players. The print will be produced in Ireland in local Snap centres. Irish manufacturing companies can compete with their international rivals. Snap centres are not just Irish, they are local across Ireland. In addition, Quark's advanced technology platform is hosted in Ireland and Quark has an established office in Dublin.
Speaking about the launch of the new product John Eager, CEO of the Snap Group, said "We are very excited to be partnering with Quark to launch MyDesignbySnap.ie into the Irish market and we hope it will be an invaluable tool for small and medium Irish businesses. The SME sector will be a major contributor to the recovering Irish economy. This solution will give businesses the competitive edge, at an affordable price. With MyDesignbySnap.ie they can move to the next level in terms of marketing themselves".
Professional designers have created the templates and the resulting material gives entrepreneurs and businesses professional-grade marketing collateral without having to hire an outside design agency and then separately manage and buy the print.
Each design template includes a full suite of products including business cards, letterheads, brochures, postcards, flyers, posters and other key marketing collateral. Customers get a consistent brand image and access to a full range of marketing promotional print products.
The templates include stock photos and marketing copy specific to different industries. Copy can be easily changed and different colour schemes and photos can be added to suit the customers' requirements.
Customers can choose from 22 Snap centres nationwide for their print requirements. The finished product may be collected at the centre or shipped to them directly. All the print will be produced in Ireland, by Irish workers. To celebrate the launch of MyDesignSnap.ie there is a special introductory offer of 20 percent off any print order on MyDesignbySnap.ie during the launch period which will run until the 12th of August. Customers can simply use the code Snap20 to get 20percent off.
Ray Schiavone, president and CEO of Quark, said, "Small business owners and entrepreneurs around the world continue to voice their need for easy-to-use solutions for creating marketing materials that look professional and stand out from the competition. We are excited to work with Snap on the launch of MyDesignbySnap to help the Snap network of printers support entrepreneurs and local businesses in Ireland".
