Colour is now the life-blood of every print business and critical to its continued growth and success. The world of print is moving to full colour; we have seen a dramatic transition from mono print to full colour in office documents and commercial print applications. In the current operating climate there is no place for poor colour control or inconsistent print results either in offset or digital.

Most customers do not want to pay for greener print products yet they want to be seen to be doing the right thing, so they expect the printer to absorb any additional cost. The result is that printers need to display their environmental credentials through their products. There is a massive opportunity for companies to stay ahead of the curve by using environmental best practice to increase the customer base and deliver improved profitability.

Over the past fifteen years, publishing markets have been redefined by simultaneous trends related to electronic delivery of content. In the past five years, smartphones, e-book readers, and tablet computers have changed the way that many readers consume content. Traditional “bricks and mortar” bookstores—whether large retail sites or small independents—have encountered fierce competition from Internet retailers like Amazon.com. The landscape has changed, and agile print service providers have an opportunity to benefit from these developments by producing a range of bound documents, including books, calendars, magazines, and photo albums.

Communicating with customers and prospects across media channels is quickly becoming essential for successful marketing. Reaching customers via multiple touch points can have a profound effect on marketing and sales efforts, and businesses are seeking service providers that can deliver their message using multiple channels beyond print. Print is a vital and powerful component of the multi-channel mix. Consumers’ trust of print and its ability to link the physical and digital worlds has positioned it as a key channel in cross-media communication. Many print service providers are discovering that moving into cross-media services is a must for optimising print’s business potential.

Over the last five years the printing industry has become increasingly commoditized and struggled to add value. Finishing, traditionally seen as an after thought and production bottleneck, is now being viewed as a critical stage in production and a way to differentiate products and create added value. It is not unusual for finishing to be as much as 40% of the production costs and often where all the value creation can be destroyed through poor quality control. SME printers have woken up to the fact that investing modest sums in finishing equipment can gain significant productivity improvements and reduce cost.

Photo merchandise represents a major market opportunity, and some sectors of this business are experiencing double-digit growth rates. Since a sizeable share of consumers have yet to purchase photo merchandise, this market also remains largely untapped. Service providers of all sizes must build awareness about the photo merchandise opportunity through quality distribution channels, word of mouth, and a strong Web presence. Once you have established a relationship with a consumer, that relationship must be cultivated with a robust focus on purchasing new and different items. The good news is that consumers who have purchased photo merchandise in the past have a very high propensity for purchasing it again in the future. Photo merchandise can be a tremendous source of profit and growth for companies of all sizes.

The world of labels is one of the fastest growing and most rapidly changing sectors in the entire printing industry, returning above GDP growth year-on-year for at least the last 30 years. Much of this growth has come from pressure-sensitive labels – perhaps more commonly known as self-adhesive labels – which have undoubtedly transformed the nature, use and applications for labels and been instrumental in the continuing evolution and rapid growth in the labels that we regularly see in everyday life.

The timing has never been better for entering the transaction document services market and expanding into TransPromo communications.

People buy wide format printing, both graphics and technical documents because it works; it works as advertising medium, it works as an information transfer tool, and it is highly cost-effective.

The transition from traditional print to value added digital print requires a focus on managing digital content and becoming a communication specialist. This provides new opportunities for growth and success, however there is one major problem. In all of this disruptive change and repositioning of the industry the sales process has remained virtually unchanged and the vast majority of printers are still marketing their products and services in exactly the same way.

It is very difficult to sell a product or service to somebody when you have no deep understanding of the world in which they operate. That's why you need to talk to your customers regularly and keep your finger on the pulse, it’s incredibly important. You must know their business challenges and what is going on in their minds to best serve them. You need to talk to them about their business, their issues and challenge, what they aspire to and what their goals are. Most importantly you need to understand what’s stopping them achieving their goals.

There are a lot of ways to add value in our industry and they all require careful planning, whether it’s becoming the most efficient, lowest cost provider in a commodity market to creating marketing programmes that integrate print and variable-digital content. Without a clear well implemented plan companies continually react to circumstances and trends beyond their control. We must all change the culture in our business so we proactively make things happen, creating positive change, because in the future good planning will be the defining factor between success and failure.
