New CUSTOMprint+ enables highly customized package printing

FASTechnology Group promises substantial marketing benefits from CUSTOMprint+, a new software integration product that fully integrates short-run, highly customized package printing with mobile and social media to enable individually targeted retail marketing initiatives. It even allows for on-pack printing for highly targeted sampling campaigns.

CUSTOMprint+ addresses several emerging market trends:

  • Retail and e-commerce marketing are converging. Many consumers will shop and/or gather coupons online, then go to a bricks-and-mortar retail outlet to make their purchase. Others will go to a retail outlet to see products hands-on then shop online for a better price.
  • Packaging and mobile media are now coordinated, with mobile devices scanning product information and delivering coupons whose values vary with the shelf-age of the product, store-specific promotional opportunities, customer loyalty rewards and other customized marketing initiatives.
  • Consumer affinities for neighborhood localization & sense of community are on the rise. Community pride extends into the market place. Local produce is preferred over imported produce. Locally manufactured products sustain higher pricing.
  • Adverse economic conditions have produced a more price sensitive shopper who increasingly relies on coupons. Retailers are issuing coupons at the point of sale.
  • The coupons available online are virtually unlimited.
