2024 Printing Trends

Here are some of the trends Printing Impressions expects to help grow the industry further: 

  1. Better Direct Mail Printing: By testing campaigns and deploying more robust data analytics for insights, pURLs, and more, we can create highly sophisticated mail pieces that stand out and produce greater responses.
  2. More Ways to Leverage Postal Costs: With inflation and higher USPS costs, it’s key to know the postal incentives so we can tailor mailings to maximize them. Volume rebates help. There are also creative ways to lower cost per piece through design, paper type, size, packaging, and more. 
  3. Integrated Production: Digital in-line printers with advanced personalization capabilities can integrate different direct mail programs (even with disparate designs, formats, and messaging) into one print stream for better targeting and efficiencies of scale.

The best commercial printing companies will do well to heed this advice. We know we will! Looking forward to the 2024 Printing Impressions’ list. In the meantime, we’ll be helping our customers grow their businesses. Join us!
