President of Chocolate Covers, discussing how DesignMerge has helped

| ||What business
challenges have you faced in the VDP market?
Chocolate Covers saw a change in the commercial
print industry as their customers began asking for personalization
in their marketing campaigns. In an effort to keep abreast
of this trend and differentiate ourselves from the competition,
we decided to research variable data solutions. We wanted
a more efficient way of numbering event and raffle ticket
jobs, and more creativity in personalized marketing materials
did you choose DesignMerge for your VDP implementation?
There are several variable data solutions on the market today.
However, after researching several solutions, we purchased
a digital press and DesignMerge variable data software. We
were impressed with DesignMerge's ease of use, fast set-up
and efficient processing. We run DesignMerge with InDesign
on a Macintosh computer. The most exceptional part of DesignMerge
is the phenomenal support we receive, which is critical. That
alone was a major factor in going with DesignMerge.
were the results of your DesignMerge implementation?
Our customers are bringing in additional personalized jobs
that now represent 5% of our overall business. I see that
percentage growing as customers get more personal with their
marketing campaigns. With our solutions in place, we are positioned
to take on any variable data job that comes to us. DesignMerge
gives Chocolate Covers the opportunity to add more value and
options to our customer's projects.
All we can say is..."SWEET!"
