Emails have revolutionized the way we communicate in both our personal and business lives.
When sending and receiving information was once a slow process, it is now exchanged at the drop of a hat.
Around 269 billion emails were sent and received each day in 2017 – and that figure is expected to increase to almost 320 billion daily mails in 2021.
Even more personal notes – such as Christmas cards, birthday wishes, or condolences – are sent by electronic means, meaning messages can sometimes lose their touch.
One company is hoping to change that.
Enter Bond: the leading provider in handwritten note services for companies of all sizes.
The New York-based company uses its technology to deliver personalized, handwritten notes – adding a unique touch to the message.
One simply types their message online, as they would an email, and the company sorts out the rest, dropping aesthetically pleasing letters into the hands of your colleagues, relatives, or loved-ones.
Their notes start from $5.00.
And they have now announced a new partnership with Midwest manufacturing giant, Jostens.
Jostens, based in Minneapolis, MN, sells a number of school-related products – including yearbooks and jewelery.
The trusted academic and achievement channel will be a perfect match for Bond, as the two will bang their heads together to mix Bond’s innovative technology with Jostens’ manufacturing scale.
Julie Noyce, general manager of Bond, said: “My first trip to the Jostens facility was one of the most interesting tours I’ve ever taken in my life – their printing machinery, ability to process millions of unique items through the facility, and the sheer scale of all of it is incredible.”
While the director of publications at Jostens, Paul Knox, said: “We are very pleased to be partnering with Bond.
“As a business that has traditional offset and digital print capabilities it is amazing to see Bond’s state of the art technology used to create unique handwritten notes.
“This partnership is truly a cooperative effort. Working with Julie and her team to transition the robots and processes to our production facility was a pleasure and I am pleased to say everything went smoothly and we had a very successful 4th quarter production season.
“This transition also allowed us to offer some of our seasonal yearbook workforce full time positions which is truly a win for us. The partnership has been great and we look forward to future growth.”
Now the largest handwritten note operation in the industry following the partnership, and Jostens one of the most recognized memorabilia brands, it will be exciting to see just how far this partnership will go – and how it will change the way we communicate and message with each other.
