Automated Mail Pieces by Divvy

Automation powers our modern printing world. Any size of business benefits from automation, whether you require a full-blown marketing campaign package or a simple reminder system. This is where Divvy thrives. Our automation processes make it easy for you to send mail pieces, invitations, and more! Whether it’s just for one event or for thousands of customers across the country, we can do it all!

Direct Mail

Automated direct mail makes marketing simple. You can send mail, news, and special offers to your customers. You can reward loyal customers and win over new ones. Better yet, we can enhance your direct mail pieces with UV spot varnish or digital foil. Research has proven that paper pieces with texture get a better response from consumers. Not only do they tend to purchase more; they’ll trust your business! It’s what our brains are wired to do.

Reminders

In our busy lives, we need a lot of reminders. And many businesses utilize them, especially in the medical or beauty industries. Missed appointments cost these industries millions annually! SO it’s important to stay on top of sending reminders as well as making them for ourselves.

Most of these companies and practices might just use email reminders or text reminders. While this is simple and convenient, it’s much better to combine digital reminders with physical. You’ll get twice the effectiveness that you might get from using only email or text.

Older customers, for example, may not be as efficient at using text and email–and for them, these reminders could be very important! Or, Millennial customers might want that physical reminder to better keep track in the storm of emails and texts they already receive.

If your business needs a reminder system, Divvy can help! We can send reminders for:

  • Dentist and orthodontist visits
  • Medical checkups
  • Veterinary checkups
  • Hair styling appointments
  • Massage therapy or spa appointments
  • And more!

We can even put variable data on each mail piece. This includes names, the date of their last appointment, and more. Adding custom data is a great way to get your customers to respond to your mailers. Using their names especially establishes a personal connection, building trust in your practice or business.

Promotions and Events

Even if your business doesn’t need reminder pieces, chances are you can still benefit from automation. If your franchise is holding a promotion, you’ll need a way to reach these clients. A pizza chain, for example, might have a pop-up advertisement on their site for those customers ordering online. But they would be most effective to supplement it with a physical mailer reminding their most loyal customers of the latest deals. And in this case, they already have those addresses! All they need is the mailer.

Businesses can also advertise events, like grand openings or major sales. Emails might get buried and forgotten, but a mailer–whether left on the counter or put up on the fridge–will help remind your customers. When they head out for a day of shopping, they’ll be more likely to remember your promotion or event!

Shipping

Of course, mailing each of these on your own would be a real drain on time and energy. Sending your own mailers amounts to hours of stressful time you could spend doing more productive things. But Divvy handles all of that. Once the job is done, we’ll fulfill your orders, sending them straight to the recipients. You can be sure the final invitations get where they need to go on time.

 

Let Divvy handle your direct mail pieces and invitations from start to finish. Call us today to find out how we can help your business save time in this important process.

Pack-Outs for Your Print Marketing Campaigns

Businesses thrive on marketing campaigns–and what better way to market than signage? It’s visible, usually colorful, and meant to grab attention right away. What could go wrong with branded signage?

Unfortunately in franchises, a lot could go wrong. It’s often too easy for franchisees to create signs and other marketing materials that go off-brand. It might be a color, a font, or even a different offer. While it might not seem like a big problem, it can be devastating for campaigns. For example, if your food-based business needs to advertise a special deal or a new menu item, and one location doesn’t get the right signage, you could lose a lot of customers looking to participate in the offer!

Marketing campaigns and promotions hold no weight if your franchisees aren’t on the same page visually. But that is where Divvy steps in.

Pack-Outs for Your Promos

Divvy easily creates quality marketing materials our franchises need to promote their products effectively. We create print marketing shipments, referred to as pack-outs. You may also know them as:

  • Quarterly marketing build-outs
  • Promo packages
  • Marketing auto-shipments

In these shipments, we print any item you might need for your campaign. These could include flyers, cards and envelopes, apparel, window clings, store graphics, menus, displays, and more. One franchise might only need a shipment of window clings, while other campaigns require all of the above for a large-scale marketing promotion.

The best part about pack-outs is that each shipment arrives at each location simultaneously, with the exact same pieces and materials. Every franchisee will receive exactly what they need for their campaign. This saves each location from having off-brand signs, different offers, and unapproved images. Your campaign will run smoother than ever with every franchisee participating this way!

Shipping Your Pack-Outs

Though it may be easy to print all the necessary products, getting them organized and off to their destinations can be trickier. But not for Divvy! Getting those products to businesses like Port of Subs, Bahama Bucks, and others in a timely manner is where we really excel.

Divvy does not deliver your print collateral back to you (the franchisor) for you to ship. That would be a waste of your time! Instead, we send it out for you to every individual location, saving you time and stress–and making sure everything gets there in time for your promotion to begin.

 

How Pack-Outs Work

Franchises order their promotional items via our web to print storefronts and API. Divvy then prints every single product just the way you need it. Need one location to receive something different from the others? We can do that, too! We will then drop-ship each set directly to every location, meeting your time-sensitive needs.

Divvy has a great deal of experience doing this for large orders covering multiple stores. We help franchises meet their tight deadlines and pull off successful marketing campaigns and promotions by doing everything in one place, where others are at the mercy of multiple shops and their variable or unreliable deadlines. Divvy’s ability to perform these pack outs in one location and ship them out to each franchisee gives us the edge compared to our competitors.

Custom Wrapping Paper for Your Business

Anniversaries, retirement, holidays–all these and more are perfect times to give gifts at your business. Create the perfect custom wrapping paper for your business and, with Divvy, share it with all of your franchisees!

Why Pick Themed Wrapping Paper?

Customized wrapping paper with your logo and colors–what could be better for your brand? Themed wrapping paper is a great marketing tool. During the holidays, you can provide themed paper for your customers to buy their own gifts. They’ll associate your business with the positivity of buying gifts, and their loved ones and friends can get that same positivity on receiving presents. This could be as small as a gift card envelope, or a whole roll of paper.

This works within your business too. Giving wrapped gifts to your clients helps them associate your brand with positive feelings, namely that sense of personal care they should get from your business. Even employees can feel the benefits! Using custom wrapping paper, you can strengthen your company culture and help them associate positive feelings with your brand and business, too!

Variable Data

Of course, wrapping paper in your colors won’t be enough. But with Divvy, we make it easy to add your logo! Our variable data technology simplifies the process of adding your logo all over your wrapping paper. Using your logo on wrapping paper is a great marketing opportunity for clients outside the company. And it’s great for company culture for gifts within the company as well!

The Perfect Size

It’s possible to print a whole roll of wrapping paper with Divvy technology. But when giving gifts within your company, a roll of even the perfect wrapping paper is usually not worth it for just one present.

If you only need to wrap one gift, we can print our custom wrapping paper at 20 x 29 inches. This makes it easy to wrap single or small gifts. You’ll never have to waste money or space on a roll of wrapping paper that you won’t use!

Of course, we also have the option to create a whole roll if you do need one. We can meet the needs of your franchise, whatever they may be.

 

Wrapping paper is more than just a decorative wrap; it’s a present for your brand. Contact us today about creating your very own custom gift wrapping paper!

Vinyl Vehicle Wraps

You can’t risk wasting time when it comes to marketing your business. In today’s fast-paced world, promotion is a race. And in trying to be the first to get noticed, some companies hit the road with their promotions. These companies market everywhere they go with vinyl vehicle wraps. Wraps and vinyl for your car works for any business, from a major company to a university, down to tiny local companies.

Divvy can help you do more than slap a simple sticker on your back windshield. We can work with you to create the best wrap and decals for your vehicle and brand.

The Perfect Wrap

We’ll work with you to create the best wrap for your vehicle. The design can come from your designers, or we can create one for you. To make it fit your car perfectly, we’ll place the design in a template that matches the make and model of your vehicle. We want to make sure that it looks absolutely perfect for you when it’s finished!

Printing and Applying

Divvy prints the design on-site, using vinyl that will weather the elements on any vehicle. We will also install it on your vehicle on-site. When installing it, we’ll create an environment perfectly suited to a clean application that will keep your vinyl long-lasting and glossy. How long does our vinyl wrap stay on your vehicle? Usually, up to 5 years. Others not suited to the outdoors can last only as long as 2 or 3 years.

For larger vehicle wraps that cover the vehicle, we’ll print them in several overlapping pieces. These pieces go on by hand, and our team uses a squeegee to prevent wrinkles and air bubbles that will destroy the look of your wrap. We’ll also hand-trim it around corners, mirrors, handles, wheel wells, and moldings.

Your Marketing On-the-Go

Now that your vinyl vehicle wrap is finished, go get on the road! The visibility of wraps promotes your business anywhere you go. Your company’s colors and design, too, make your branding recognizable for even those who haven’t seen your business in person yet.

Should you decide to change your design in the future, our vinyl is easy to remove from your vehicle. And it won’t damage your paint or leave a sticky residue!

Have more questions about vehicle wrapping? Have a vehicle you want to wrap? Contact us today! We’ll work with you to create the perfect vinyl vehicle wraps for your franchise.

Printed Custom Business Cards with Divvy

Imagine your business without marketing tools. Chances are, internal working would probably run the same as ever. But face-to-face meetings with clients would likely stumble or shatter. So a lot of businesses seek out the best possible marketing tools to establish connections with clients, send information, and maximize sales. We at Divvy believe that among the most effective of those tools are business cards. Business cards are powerful, even in today’s digital world. Even salespeople and other face-to-face representatives of your company work better with physical print.

Why Choose Business Cards?

The adage that a picture says a thousand words applies to business cards as well! Business cards do a lot of your talking and marketing for you–more than people realize. Paper automatically has more power in today’s digital world than an email or a LinkedIn invite alone. Touch marketing shows that paper has greater recall power. People who handle a card with texture also tend to associate it with more positive feelings. Why wouldn’t you want that for a marketing tool?

Finally, business cards are often a silent marketing tool. This is especially true at networking events. If you don’t have one at your event, whether on your person or at your booth, you’ll stand out–and not in a good way. Cards also are effective when left on your booth or table. This lets people connect with your company even when they don’t stop to talk to you. Whether they’re too shy or too busy, they’ll have a way to contact you later.

Make Them Memorable!

The design of a business card can make it stand out as well. We’ve found several out-of-the-box designs for absolutely stunning, unforgettable cards. Even if you don’t opt for this route, the look of your card can still speak volumes about your company. A card can show that you’re utilitarian or fun, that you know what you’re doing or that you might still have something to learn. Design carefully, and let your card speak for you!

One way you can incorporate fantastic design and touch marketing into your card is with foil or UV spot varnish. Both of these create a great texture and shine that makes your card irresistible to touch and hold. Remember those positive feelings? Adding foil or varnish only increases those. Plus, the “special” look of these cards ensures that your clients will want to hold onto them. You’ll worry a lot less about lost information!

 

Are you looking for creative ways to connect with your clients and customers? Need to run some ideas by a printer to see if they are even possible? Divvy’s web to print API makes it easy to print business cards on-demand from our manufacturing and fulfillment system. Using our storefronts, you can print to your brand’s standards using corporate-approved colors and designs to keep your cards consistent throughout the company.

Need a lot of cards printed? Divvy can take out the hassle for you! Our variable data makes it simple to create an individual card for every employee in your company.No matter how big the job, you and your company can trust that Divvy’s high-quality service and technology will help your business stand out.

How printed training materials protect your business

When you’re part of a national franchise chain, communication can be one of the most challenging parts of your business. Corporate executives often need help communicating the company’s vision to the franchise owners, and the franchisees are tasked with instructing their staff.

This process is vulnerable to communication break down and that can damage your business. Divvy helps prevent this problem and improve business communication by providing quality, printed training materials for national and international corporations.

Printed training materials help support business standards. They take all of the information that you need to run your business, and summarize it into a conveniently designed manual. When everyone in the company can reference identical printed training materials, they can all be held to the same standard.

Iron Tribe, a fitness company based in Alabama, uses Divvy to print and ship hundreds of manuals to their franchisees.
