Ohio Northern University Broadens Its Service Offerings with MGI Meteor Digital PressJuly 26, 2012
ONU’s typical applications include postcards, posters, envelopes, business cards, brochures, letterhead, fact sheets and a host of direct mail projects for Financial Aid and Admissions. In fact, variable-data postcards are one of ONU’s key applications, with typical batch sizes of 1,000 to 12,000.
One particular project involved producing a mailing of 13,000 full-color, variable-data postcards for a region-specific event the Financial Aid department was hosting, with a turnaround time of just a few days. Not only did the project go of without a hitch, RSVPs started coming in immediately and Financial Aid was able to easily fill all the slots for the event.
ONU’s administration has been very enthusiastic about the addition of the Meteor. Not only are the university’s projects completed quickly and in much higher quality than they had been previously, but now the majority of jobs can be produced in-house.
“By keeping work in our facility, we can maintain an aggressive pricing structure that still makes it a win-win for the college and eliminates any added costs as a result of having to outsource the work,” noted Stanley. “Thanks to the Meteor, I’ve been able to handily follow through on the promises I made to the administration when I asked them to approve this press.”
