Make Sales Entertaining
April 1, 2005

Distributors can increase sales of printed products by mixing business with pleasure. Regardless of the economy, the weather or world affairs, people love to be entertained. From sporting events to music and theater, there would be no audience without printed products. Distributors who aren't pursuing this often-overlooked niche are doing themselves a disfavor, say manufacturers. In addition to big-name national events, there are literally hundreds of entertainment-related activities happening in every community. Some are annual events, such as arts festivals, county fairs, 10K runs, or home and garden shows. Others may be one-shot events to celebrate a town or company anniversary or team championship.

Proving One Product is Better Than Two
February 1, 2003

Distributors experience priceless benefits by offering two products as one. Although Form/Label combinations may not make up a large percentage of business for most distributors and manufacturers—some reporting total annual sales of 2 percent or less for these products—they are products that make sense to provide and promote.

But gambling that it won't isn't going to help when something does go wrong. Aided by the proliferation of powerful printers, copiers and scanners, check and document fraud continues to grow. But despite the increasing sophistication of would-be crooks, how many businesses are really insured against the threat of deception? "The question to ask is, who's going to look at my documents and who's going to steal them?" said Tom Hahn, vice president, Data Management, Butler,

Top Design Contest--Cut Sheets
July 17, 2001

Platinum Award: Cut Sheets. Interstellar Overdrive. When Le Moyne College, Syracuse, N.Y., wanted to blast its outdated student schedule and statement into the 21st century, it could have called on Buzz Aldrin, or even Buzz Lightyear, for a little interstellar inspiration. Instead, the small Catholic college called on Buzz Underwood, CDC and chairman of the Cooley Group East Syracuse, N.Y. Though an internationally acclaimed astronaut (or an animated movie character) may have been a flashier choice, Cheryl Davies, bursar for the college, said settling on Underwood wasn't a difficult decision at all. "The college has had a long-standing relationship with Cooley—they designed our statement forms 20 years ago,"
