Content is drawn from a computerized database according to “rules” on how the content should be used during printing, for instance, which pieces of text or graphics to use (asset) and where they should be placed (layout).
Percentage improvements attributed to the use of personalization print programs
Promotional documents now include relevant individual data to support buying decisions.
Revenues and profits associated with personalized marketing programs are
31% greater than with general marketing.

By personalizing communications, advertising and promotions can be tailored to appeal to the interests of individuals rather than broad segments of people. The concept of one-to-one marketing fine-tunes target marketing to the level of the individual. One-to-one marketing is the practice of communicating directly to each customer.
The marketing opportunities presented by variable data printing are enormous.
The limit now, is just your imagination
