Create Digital Printing Projects in a Few Easy Steps

More frequently, Minneapolis and St. Paul businesses are choosing digital printing for their direct mail and other printing projects. Matreks Printing is able to take your company’s PDF, InDesign or other file and have a completed print project mailed to you or your direct mail recipients quickly and cost-effectively.

First Step: Create a Print Project

The first step in any digital print job is to create the files for the project using your favorite graphic design program. Matreks can print projects from a variety of formats, including Quark Xpress, Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop or a full-resolution PDF. Matreks can also print Microsoft Office files, but recommends you convert these files to PDFs so font and style sheets are preserved.

You also may choose to submit a spreadsheet with your direct mail printing project. Digital printing can be used for variable data printing, which allows you to customize your direct mailings to individual clients. A spreadsheet with recipients’ names, addresses and other relevant demographic information is all Matreks needs to customize your project.

Next Step: Submit Files to Matreks

After you create the files for your digital printing project, you can submit your project to Matreks in an email. Matreks also accepts projects on CDs, DVDs, in a ZIP file or through our easy YouSendIt application.

Once we receive the files, Matreks can print, bind, and package the final product and have it shipped to you by the end of the day. Matreks can also print and send mail projects directly to recipients. Since digital printing uses the electronic project file as the proof, it is not necessary to take time out of your busy day to stop by our shop for a press check.

If you need to make changes after you submit your files, Matreks can modify the project on the fly with little or no set-up time. We can merge documents and change the quantity on the order with a simple email or phone call from you.
