New York, NY (PRWEB) December 21, 2006
The Industry Measure has released the industry's first baseline study on Variable Data Print (VDP) / Variable Imaging (VI) pricing practices. This Industry Measure mini-report, "Pricing for Variable Data Print: Baseline Data on What the Industry Is Doing Now," is aimed at printers and other VDP producers and is priced at $299.00 to fit into even smaller budgets.
- Percentage of respondents offering VDP in-house or outsourcing it;
- Preferred pricing models (such as all-in-one package price or individual line-item invoicing)
- Which services VDP producers are itemizing separately;
- Whether respondents are pricing individual services by value or cost-plus;
- Top challenges faced in pricing VDP jobs.
One of the most interesting findings of the survey is that the most common pricing models are polar opposites--all-in-one package pricing and individual line-item invoicing--with nearly equal percentages of respondents citing each pricing model. This clearly reflects, not just VDP producers' differing pricing philosophies, but their differing business philosophies.
The report is based on an online survey of 100 respondents, providing a very high level of reliability.
