AlphaGraphics Billings Business Mail, Fulfillment, and Data Management Services.
Imagine that you have created the perfect promotional piece that delivers a dynamic message to your customers. Now what? How do you deliver it? When do you deliver it? How do you combine multiple pieces of matched and inserted pieces, at the same time making sure the right message goes to the right person?
Let us coordinate it for you. After all, AlphaGraphics centers are experts in business mailing and shipping services, too. We’ll not only assist in fulfillment, kitting and packaging, but we can also help you buy the right list and determine the best demographic. Plus we’ll help you select the most efficient way to get it there — on time and within budget.
Marketers know that 40% of the effectiveness of a campaign is attributed to the list, so it’s important to make sure your message is making it into the right hands. Prior to mailing, we can help you with finding the right audience for the right price, while utilizing the ability to be as targeted or as broad as necessary. Our expert staff know the ins and outs of the mailing world, and can leverage that knowledge to help you get the best mailing rate possible. We offer:
Packaging & Fulfillment
Once your marketing piece is printed, we can help make sure it gets organized, packaged, labeled, and shipped to the right person. AlphaGraphics excels at organizing complicated multi-piece projects that mail or deliver, whether they’re made up of one piece or a half dozen. We’ll take the stress and confusion away from your mailing projects using container and sequence matching, a dedicated staff to kitting & packaging, and advanced machinery to automate inserting, stamping, and sealing.
Business Mailing and Shipping
After your list is perfect, and your piece is printed, and we’ve taken the time to professionally seal, stamp, stuff, insert, label, and package your campaign, we’ll submit it the post office to ensure the accuracy of your list carries through to your customer’s mailbox. We’ll track the shipments and report back to you, maintain your list to keep it up to date and relevant, and make suggestions for improvements. Using AlphaGraphics means you have an on-call list management service for your marketing projects.
