Digital Embossing

3dUV™

Acculink enhances printed sheets with 3dUV digital embossing using the new Scodix Sense UV press.

In 2011, Acculink introduced the first Scodix 1200 digital UV press to the US commercial printing world using our trademarked name, 3dUV. Acculink enhances printed documents with a digitally applied UV polymer in variable heights up to 250 microns – the approved height of braille by the National Institute for the Blind. Often called Scodix “Sense”, our 3dUV treatment is a post-press application that enhances documents with a tactile sense that is 10 times more memorable than traditional print according to a recent neurological study. 3dUV may be applied to most any substrate with a coating tension capable of holding the UV polymer; such as gloss or matte papers, approved laminates, synthetic materials used for covers, loyalty cards, book covers, marketing materials, and packaging. The effects are phenomenal and are ideal for simulating blind embossing, creating Braille text or simply generating unique images for impressive tactile designs.

How does 3dUV work?

Enhanced images are stored on the Scodix press, and registered to the printed sheet via OPA registration dots pre-printed with the parent sheet.

Need a proven & memorable marketing approach?

Studies have shown that adding the sense of touch increases memory retention by a factor of ten. This ability becomes hugely beneficial on important marketing materials and packaging designs. Even direct mail, book covers and business cards reach a heightened level of attention using this innovative service.

Need an Affordable Packaging Prototype or Short-run solution?

3dUV Scodix digital embossing has proven very beneficial for packaging prototypes, and short run targeted packaging projects where expensive dies can be time and cost prohibitive. The effects achieved with 3dUV Scodix digital embossing also generate positive ROI on direct mail marketing materials that need quick response and attention. Check out our case studies, and testimonials to learn more!

Uniquely Designed Envelope

Intelimailer™

For direct mail marketing, we offer the Intelimailer as a surefire mailing envelope guaranteed to be opened. The unique construction allows for highly personalized, secure documents to be printed and converted together such that all inserted pieces match, and even include return envelopes or buck slip cards.

What is the Intelimailer?

The Intelimailer is a uniquely designed envelope that creates maximum impact and readership. Often referred to as the EasyMailer or TransforMailer, the Intelimailer is constructed from a full-color 8.5″ x 11″ printed sheet and converted with specially glued flaps and up to three 8.5″ x 11″ inserts; as well as, a companion reply envelope or promotional card. This construction is ideal for highly personalized and confidential mailings such as fund-raising or lead generation campaigns. Typically the contents are digitally produced using our high-quality HP Indigo presses which lend themselves well to data-driven match mailings.

Want to be a marketing leader?

Until now, creating full color, personalized direct mail letter packages, and cross-media campaigns have been time-consuming and expensive. Only large companies with big budgets could afford it. But now with the Intelimailer, you can offer complete, hard-hitting letter packages supported by PURLs, QR codes, landing pages, even mobile messaging in quantities (from 300 up to 30,000), for any size customer without any extra work – for only a few cents more than a one-dimensional postcard.

Want an edge over all your competitors?

Even in tough economic times, direct response cross-media marketing is king. Direct Mail tied to multichannel media consistently outperforms all other marketing media and provides the best results for generating new leads, increasing cross-sell and up-sell program results, generating more and higher donations than any other media. When it comes to small businesses, the Intelimailer levels the playing field with marketing giants in terms of proven results and ROI.

That’s why even in the current economic environment, according to marketing firm Epsilon Targeting’s latest Consumer Channel Preference Study of nearly 5,000 North American consumers, 50% of U.S. consumers prefer direct mail to email. The study, entitled “Direct Mail Remains Consumers’ Preferred Choice for Marketing Messages,” finds that direct mail continues to deliver as consumers’ preferred means of receiving marketing messages from brands, with six out of ten Americans saying they “enjoy getting postal mail from brands about new products.”

The research shows that “despite direct mail’s reputation for being “old school” or expensive, it is the top choice of U.S. consumers for the receipt of brand communications in almost every class, ranging from health to household products, to household services, insurance and financial services, including credit card offers,” Also of note, “the preference for direct mail also extends to the 18-34 year old demographic.”

Multi-Channel Communications Measurement and Benchmarking from InfoTrends, marketers reported a lift in response rates of 35% when using multi-channel campaigns (combined print, e-mail, and Web landing pages) over single channel print-only campaigns. In addition, marketers reported increased lift in response rates of nearly 50% when using highly personalized and relevant multi-channel campaigns over static print-only campaigns.

Direct mail continues to deliver as consumers’ preferred means of receiving marketing messages from brands, with six out of ten Americans saying they “enjoy getting postal mail from brands about new products.”
