PrintImage International Chooses ePrint Advantage Software
Press release from the issuing company
Association creates a customized membership communication program
April 22, 2002 – Chicago, IL. PrintImage International, the leading trade association for small and quick commercial printing companies, announces that they are beginning a program where they will personalize communications to their 1,500 members. PrintImage International has chosen e1to1Mail, the web-based variable data printing solution from ePrint Advantage, as the software solution for this program.
"Our members have shown a consistent interest in this evolving business opportunity", says Steve Johnson, President of PrintImage International. "At each of the past two annual conferences this was one of the topics that drew the highest attendance. We have decided that we should be showing our members the business benefit of variable data printing through our own marketing communications."
PrintImage International chose e1to1Mail from ePrint Advantage because of its powerful personalization capabilities and its simple, straightforward implementation and workflow. "We don’t have a large staff. In order to entertain this, the solution we chose had to be easy to implement and use. ePrint Advantage trained us on our own e1to1Mail web site in less than 4 hours. We are looking forward to using it in our standard member communications and in our solicitation of new members", added Johnson. "It is truly a better way to do business."
"We are very pleased to be the chosen solution to help PrintImage International in this way", says Peg Ganger, Vice President of Marketing for ePrint Advantage. "We have had a good relationship with them over the years and have many of their members as customers. This is a good way for PrintImage International to ‘walk the talk’ for their members." The program is underway and will continue throughout 2002.
