U.S. Postal Service Planning 2012 Holiday Mobile Shopping Promotion

Cyber Monday was the busiest shopping day last year. Up 29 percent over 2010, Cyber Monday’s purchasing surge was no doubt due to a number of deals offered by retailers. And with the deal the U.S. Postal Service is planning for online merchants this holiday season, Cyber Monday 2012 could be even better.

Designed to drive online product purchases by putting mobile-optimized promotional offers, coupons and catalogs into consumers’ hands, the U.S. Postal Service’s 2012 Holiday Mobile Shopping Promotion will offer online merchants an upfront 2 percent postage discount on Standard Mail and First-Class Mail letters, flats and cards (presort and automation) that include a mobile barcode or print/mobile technology — such as a QR code — that can be read or scanned by a mobile device and leads the mail recipient to a mobile-optimized shopping website. The promotion will run Nov. 7- Nov. 21, 2012.

Mailers may also qualify for an additional 1 percent postage rebate on their discounted mailings if a portion of their product orders are fulfilled via Priority Mail between Nov. 9, 2012, and Dec. 31, 2012. The 2012 Holiday Mobile Shopping Promotion is subject to approval by the Postal Regulatory Commission.

“This latest pricing incentive solidifies the Postal Service’s leadership role as a catalyst of e-commerce trade between consumers and online merchants,” said Gary Reblin, vice president, Domestic Products. “The reliability of mail to serve as the on-ramp for mobile commerce, along with the tremendous growth of mobile devices, gives online merchants a surefire way to generate sales this holiday season.

“By offering a short-term promotion linking mail and mobile devices during the key holiday purchasing timeframe, the Postal Service is providing online merchants with an incentive designed to increase industry adoption of a physical-to-digital marketing approach.”

For additional information on the 2012 Holiday Mobile Shopping Promotion, go to RIBBS. Program registration opens Sept. 15, 2012, and continues through Nov. 21, 2012. Participants must agree to partake in a survey about the promotion.

Best Variable Data Solution for the Offset Printer

November 11, 2010 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Events, General 

One of my favorite conversations I had at this year’s Graph Expo Show was speaking with traditional offset printers looking to tap into the hot variable data market. Most of these printers have clients who are looking for preferred vendors to produce personalized postcards, form letters, and other direct mail marketing projects. As we were talking, I could sense their frustration as they shared what they imagined to be additional time, resources, and costs associated with variable data. I enjoyed explaining to these companies just how easy and economical it is to produce efficient and effective projects using the DesignMerge Pro solution.

DesignMerge Pro is a plug-in for Adobe InDesign and QuarkXpress, two applications that graphic artists and desktop operators have been using their entire working career. Getting started with DesignMerge Pro is very easy and our solutions support all the style guides and design effects, so you don’t have to worry about jeopardizing your client’s design integrity.

Other robust capabilities, like Conditional Rules Logic (menu driven, you can skip night school for programming) and CopyFit (multiple options, giving you eye pleasing capabilities to fix overset conditions), come standard in DesignMerge Pro. In addition, we support the most popular VDP outputs, including PPML and VPS, and can output to practically every RIP and digital printer…you know, that machine in the back that produces the office football pool sheets! Depending on your needs, investment in our solution can be made for under a thousand dollars, and can be scaled to meet your needs as your VDP business grows.

It was great seeing many faces turn from frustration to excitement knowing they can count on DesignMerge now and in the future.
