Integrating Your Digital and Print Marketing

To see the effect of combining direct mail with digital advertising, Canada Post and Ipsos conducted a neuromarketing study that measured emotional response, for results that provided more predictive insights.

Overall, the study showed that integrated campaigns drove more attention, higher brand recall, and a stronger emotional response than digital campaigns alone.

Integrating DIRECT MAIL AND DIGITAL improved factors that can drive consumer action. In this study, we saw (vs. single media campaigns):

Two Sides – A Great Environmental Story

Over the last six decades, the total U.S. forest area has increased by over 3% and the net volume of trees on timberland has increased by 58%.1

In Canada, the forest cover has remained stable over the last two decades and, in recent years, Canada’s actual harvest has been 44% of annual growth.2

UV Coating For Digital Pieces

Add some “pop” to your printed pieces by having it finished with UV coating. Ultraviolet coating is a very glossy (or matte) finish applied to the surface and then cured using UV light. It adds depth and amazing durability. Ask your Account Manager to see a sample – it’s a great, inexpensive way to make your work stand out from the rest!

Classic Printing to Amalgamate with Bond Reproductions

In August 2009 Bond Reproductions Inc. completed the purchase of Classic Printing Ltd., and in July of 2014, completed the centralization of its plants into one print facility for administration and production at 1450 Adanac Street – home to Classic Printing since 1985.

Bond has operated both brands since that time. We have recently decided to join the Bond and Classic divisions into one. Effective May 1, all of Classic’s operations will fall under the Bond name and we will no longer actively market the Classic brand. This will streamline our processes, production and distribution while removing duplication and redundancies.

The only change our valued Classic customer will see is in the name. The production and sales teams will remain the same, as will the service and high-quality product you have come to expect from us.

We look forward to our continued relationship with you and thank you for your support.

Digital Press Upgrades

BOND has recently upgraded and installed digital color equipment:

  • We have completed the installation of our 2nd Xerox iGen5.
  • We have completed the installation of a new Ricoh 9110 color digital press. This unit compliments our four black & white Ricoh copiers. This is BOND’s 1st Ricoh color machine – and we have high expectations.

With these equipment (and subsequent) software upgrades you will notice an improvement in your finished materials. The feedback points to sharper / finer text and truer color.

Some notes:

  • We recommend designers who are able to manage their images ensure they have tagged ICC profiles on their photos, and clients are free to send us outlined files as supplied print-ready art, however we will not be outlining fonts as standard practice any longer (due to the excellent font rendering abilities of the new equipment).
  • We will now be targeting sRGB and Gracol profiles, which offer a broader gamut of color.

These changes are for the benefit of our clients and serve to process your supplied art in the best way possible to maximize color quality and font reproduction.
