TPI presents "Frosty the Pressman"

It's that time of year again. The day when we reflect upon everything we're thankful for, and it's considered socially acceptable to overeat until you fall asleep. In honor of Thanksgiving, we've put together some graphic design inspiration for you to stuff your face with before the turkey fest begins.
On Tuesday morning, upon arriving in the office after the long holiday weekend, I was welcomed by this very interesting package.
The package is almost two feet long, six inches wide, 7 inches high and very light weight.
Our first thought in the office was, who ordered this and what is it. Next, after reading the outside of the box I began to think it might be advertising.
We opened the box.
This was what we saw when we opened the box:
A large printed label adhered to the inside cover of the box with a message from American Express.
Then as we lifted the nicely printed blue sky and white fluffy clouds we saw this:
A remote control helicopter! Wow!
So, what's the catch? What is the call to action?
Here it is:
Very creative Amex! I think we will be giving Ms. Weir a call, if only to discuss this awesome marketing campaign.
My only criticism of this campaign is that American Express could have made an even bigger impact with the use of personalization/variable data. I know that they have loads of personal information at their fingertips, (they probably know the birthweight of my first born child, for goodness sake!) so, I say, put that information to good use, personalize my marketing piece!
Did anybody else out there receive the helicopter? What did you think? Will you set up an appointment? Have you opened the box yet? Would personalization have made a difference?
Can't wait to hear your feedback on this. If you have received a cool direct mail marketing piece that made you say WOW please share!
"What size sheet can you print on your digital press?"
"Can you print on heavy paper?"
"Can you print on plastic?"
"What about white ink?"
These are just a few of the questions we get from graphic designers and print buyers when it comes to designing for digital print on our HP Indigo 5500 digital press.
So, to help you out, we've put together this handy infographic design guide with some basic information about our HP Indigo digital press capabilities here at TPI Solutions Ink. We hope you find this helpful!

Two of my favorite things are cooking and graphic design. After a long day of work I love to go home and create an awesome meal. So naturally, I get really excited when food and design come together. I get inspired by everything from new and interesting package design to high quality food photography. This collection showcases a few of my favorite combinations of food and graphic design.
