The market for personalised and customised products is rapidly expanding with consumers desperate for personalised products. They all require something that is cool, unique, or simply reflects their personality. In order to a produce an efficient mass customisation & personalisation service, retailers and manufacturers must embrace on-demand print technology.

  • Less money is tied up in inventory because you are only using 1 product to service many different customers all with unique designs.
  • Less Waste is produced because on demand means you only print what you sell eliminate the risk of ordering in obsolete products.
  • Less Storage space is needed by eliminating the need for multiple products less storage space is required.
  • Faster turnaround times means shorter runs take less time so you can react faster to customer requirements or emerging trend designs.
  • Greater margins are realised because customers are willing to pay up to 20% more for a personalised product.
  • Linear production costs eliminates the need for set up thereby providing constant production costs where within reason 1 will cost the same as 1000 to produce.
