However, data-driven 1: 1 direct mail with high print quality is no longer just referred to a postcard or self-mailer. W + D now offers owners of cut-sheet or web digital printing machines a complete solution that allows them to use these resources to create high-performance, digitally printed, haptic 1: 1 envelopes with 1: 1 content. “
