PPV technology is short for Print Plus Video Technology and is the name PrintFlix uses to market a wide assortment of video enhanced print products. PPV products are available on-demand and in small quantities. There's a full range of sizes, features and formats to choose from. Customer application and budget often dictates the choice of product. Applications include target marketing campaigns or a business card that ups the "wow factor" considerably. PrintFlix carries more than 40 stock items including video books, video business cards, video brochures, video menus, video albums and video keepsakes in a semi-finished state awaiting only your design. And when it comes to design, we offer many options here as well. We provide design templates and dielines for all of our stock products and we create new ones for those wanting something a bit more bespoke. The PrintFlix web assisted design portal offers step-by-step directions for creating most PPV items. The portal allows customers to preview videos within a design template and is an ideal choice for those who want to create a PPV product with a minimum amount of time and expense. Finally, we have our own in-house creative team ready to assist whenever necessary. Our team incudes graphic designers and video artists who fully understand the PPV medium and the expertise to weave the best of print and video together into a unified, cohesive program. Our creative staff create presentations that leverage the beth of both print and video for far greater impact. A PPV presentation is like an entire campaign in a box; visually engaging, tactile, and different than anything your customers have seen before. PPV resonates with customers on multiple levels and at multiple touch points while remaining relevant longer.
PrintFlix believes that Print plus Video products should be affordable and that's why our pricing reflects the fluid, world wide market for consumer electronics. The basic ingredients inside a PPV product can be found in thousands of household items from toys to appliances. When there is a drop in component pricing like flash memory or LCD panels, we are quick to pass those savings on to our customers. Why? Because we want as many people as possible to experience the impact of electrified print products. This can only happen if our products are competitively priced. As demand for consumer electronics grows, the pricing for video embedded marketing and keepsake items will continue to drop as well; its just inevetiable. Ten years ago, the notion of single use video players would be considered absurd and yet today, hundreds of thousands are shipped out of our factory to businesses and end users all over the world. So are PPV products really that expensive? When you compare a video brochure to a high-end print-only brochure, our pricing is not significantly different. However, PPV products yield far greater returns on investment because of their explosive marketing power making them a far better choice for direct marketing programs. Our benchmark for guaging whether Print Plus Video products are expensive is based on the results they deliver. Do the results justify the expense? The response from our customers is a resounding, yes. When reviewing our pricing, one should always consider the size of the display and the quantity of products being purcahsed as the leading indicators whne guaging PPV pricing. You can find a list of retail prices in the pricing section of this web site. Dealer pricing is available to those who qualify. You can fill out an application at www.printflixreseller.com.
Designing and marketing Print Plus Video products is not for the "faint of heart." In fact, you have to be a little bit crazy to do what we do. On one hand, we experience all of the daily challenges printers, consumer electronic, video and design firms face every day. Our hands on, multi-touch point factory allows us to completely control the variables of time and quality better than any one else. PrintFlix has "skin in the game" having produced hundreds of products since 2009. We put that experience to work on every project we take on. You can see that experience and confidence in the sheer depth of products we offer. While most companies focus their products around greeting cards or business cards produced abroad, we carry these products in house and can deliver at the "speed of business".
PrintFlix products are offered on-demand and can be produced within a few days of receipt. No one else can offer this measure of service because our production facility in Las Vegas is stocked with electronics and print supplies and the talent to turn the two of them into a finished product. We also support what we sell better than our competition because we can get replacement units back into the field faster.
Finally while making a PPV product involves a substantial amount of knowledge and expertise, we do everything possible to make creative production simple and fast. We provide a full set of design tools including Photoshop templates and die-lines as well as a number of variable design templates that anyone can customize online.
Currently we have submitted five applications to the USPTO and other foreign governing bodies for inventions expected to receive full patent approval within the next few years. We have a deep and abiding respect for intellectual property and go to great lengths to avoid infringing upon the work of others. Technology is fluid and always evolving. We believe in a few years, the products that we are making today will certainly displaced by an arsenal of new products that are smaller, lighter, thinner and cheaper. It's simply inevitable. So while protecting inventions is prudent, even more important is to never erest on your laurels and always keep evolving.
