AURORA, ON – April 28, 2015 – Prime Data is the first company in Canada to utilize the elan™ 500  — a new high speed, (up to 500 duplex letter images per minute) CMYK inkjet printer that makes direct mail, easier, faster and more affordable for direct marketers.

elan, manufactured by Delphax Technologies, shrinks production time for direct mail by several days.  At the same time, it offers full-colour duplex variable printing at a price and quality previously unavailable.

“Prime Data invests in technology, and this particular technology is a game-changer for variable direct mail,” says Steve Falk, President of Prime Data. “It’s a great option for not-for-profits, but also for any organization that needs to offer the personal touch in communication with customers and prospects and reach them quickly with time-sensitive offers or appeals.”

“We are proud to be associated with Prime Data, one of the most innovative direct marketing companies in Canada,” said Dieter Schilling, CEO and President of Delphax Technologies Inc.

elan saves time — a full four days in production for a typical fundraising letter campaign– by eliminating the need for pre-printed shells, combining printing & personalization at the same time  and offering full-colour duplex in one pass. It is a lower-cost alternative to offset printing and colour laser, plus eliminates the cost of warehousing and over-printing shells.

The new technology makes  full-colour, variable direct mail production easy, fast and affordable for all direct marketers.
