How Does Variable Information Printing Function?
Variable data printing (VDP) empowers brands to deliver individualized and custom marketing messages to their customers, enhancing responses, providing brand security, and enabling product traceability. This is accomplished through the digital printing of variable information. Domino’s Digital Printing Solutions can handle everything from simple alphanumeric text and sequential numbering to various industry-standard machine-readable codes and high-resolution graphics, achieving printing speeds of up to 200 meters per minute. Amid the challenges posed by Covid, the demand for printing barcodes, QR codes, sequential numbers for serialization, track and trace, security features, brand protection, and anti-counterfeiting has become more crucial than ever.
“COVID-19 has potentially accelerated the growth of e-commerce by five years,” notes Gary Peterson, Variable Data Solutions Manager for Domino North America. “With individuals working and staying at home, the demand for online purchases has significantly risen. Families, experiencing the convenience of e-commerce through easy online ordering and doorstep delivery, are incorporating it into their regular routines, a trend likely to persist even after lockdown restrictions ease. This surge in e-commerce has led to an immediate rise in the need for pre-printed barcode labels in logistics supply chains. Domino’s customers have witnessed a 40-50% surge in the demand for variable data label printing, and this upward trend is expected to continue,” Peterson adds.
