Next Day Flyers Incorporates Affinity Express Design Services into Product Mix
Like Next Day Flyers' printing, the turnaround time is quick. Once a customer decides to use the in-house design services, and information is exchanged, they usually receive an email proof in about 24 hours. When the design is approved it goes straight to print.
And guess who is providing those design services? You're right.
According to Reggie Gonzalez, director of sales for graphic production and support services, Next Day Flyers got in touch with us last year. A lot of the artwork Next Day Flyers received from customers wasn't production-ready and they did not have the resources to edit or create the artwork in-house within their 24-hour turn times.
Next Day Flyers chose Affinity Express as a partner because of our:
- Response times: Affinity Express delivers production-ready designs and responds to quote requests as per Next Day Flyers' schedules.
- Technology: The ease of use of our IDEA workflow management system allows Next Day Flyers to easily check on the status of orders and delivery of production files.
- Customer service: The availability of our production team to rapidly respond to production requests, quote requests and changes to orders, makes working with Affinity Express easy for Next Day Flyers' customer service and account executives.
Next Day Flyers tested out Affinity Express for two months, making sure we met the quality and turn times they expected (2-4 hour quote response times and production-ready artwork delivered in 24 hours or less). The company was delighted with the Affinity Express work and, as a result, since December we have produced dozens of designs every day for Next Day Flyers.
It has been a wonderful experience to launch a new value-added segment with Next Day Flyers from conception to delivery. We have built a new mechanism for which Next Day Flyers can service their customers in the same 24-hour production philosophy as we do with all of our other partners. The Next Day Flyers team is dedicated to this partnership and we will be here to help them grow this new and exciting product offering.
According to Jennifer Holt, Design Coordinator at Next Day Flyers:
"Creating professional designs can be a challenge for anyone who doesn't have their own design team. We offer our in-house custom design services for customers who would like us to create a design, recreate a design, or fix issues with current design files. It's like having your own personal design team, without the expense. "I would encourage any person or company who wants design help to give our design services a try. It's usually far less expensive than hiring their own designer. For instance, a two-sided full color business card design costs only about $45.00."
This demonstrates the level of partnership we offer. We've heard this from more than one client: "Affinity Express is part of my team." We are glad that this relationship enables us to fulfill the needs of a new set of customers by providing them with quality artwork and marketing production services.
