Download the Full Release Here

New York State Industries for the Disabled, Inc. thanks NYS, recognizes employment of New Yorkers with disabilities through statewide community service

(Syracuse, NY) – IMS, Inc. will join New York State Industries for the Disabled, Inc. (NYSID) by participating in NYSID Works! A Community “Thank You” Event on Thursday, September 17 to thank New York State for creating jobs for New Yorkers with disabilities –– a celebration of work by working.

In appreciation for thousands of job opportunities for New Yorkers with disabilities, NYSID will help facilitate its member agencies and corporate partners in a day of volunteer service by cleaning parks and beautifying communities across New York State.

Each NYSID member agency or corporate partner is choosing a local non-profit in need of a small beautification project, such as pulling weeds, raking leaves, planting mums, and general cleanup. Through these joint, statewide community service projects, NYSID sends a unified, heartfelt message of gratitude to legislators, business and community leaders across New York State for creating employment opportunities for New Yorkers with disabilities.

On September 17th, IMS management and staff will clean pedestrian walkways, repaint exterior benches, refresh mulch and update flowerbeds at Upstate University Hospital Community Campus in Syracuse, New York.

“Since 2006 IMS, Inc. has been a corporate partner of NYSID”, said John D. Mashia Jr., President and COO of IMS, Inc. “Currently, we employ up to 26 individuals with disabilities throughout our offices in New York State. Additionally we provide a classroom setting where select individuals can receive training services to assist in their transition to the workforce. NYSID Works! provides us the opportunity to celebrate these valued employees and their contributions to our organization by partaking in a day of service to improve our local community.”

IMS is participating in this volunteer event as a way of expressing our partnership and ongoing support of the NYSID mission. We believe employing New Yorkers with disabilities makes IMS a stronger organization and a more community-focused business.

NYSID member agencies and corporate partners will collaborate with local universities, community colleges, BOCES programs, and other educational institutions to partner with students on volunteer activities.

Similarly, NYSID and its member agencies will encourage veterans’ organizations and agencies with whom it routinely partners on Veterans’ Summits and Battle Buddy Centers to participate.

All participants in NYSID Works will wear apparel specially designed for the occasion by workers at the Nicholas Center for Autism and Spectrum Designs Foundation, a member agency in Port Washington that provides gainful employment and meaningful work opportunities to individuals with autism in a fully functioning apparel customization shop.

In addition, the initiative complements NYSID’s 40th-anniversary theme of “40 Years of Looking Forward” while also segueing into National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) in October.

“For 40 years, NYSID has been able to turn business opportunities into jobs for New Yorkers with disabilities through the Preferred Source Program,” said Ron Romano, NYSID president & CEO. “This day of community appreciation is our way of saying thanks and giving back, by showcasing the skills and talents of individuals with disabilities from our member agencies and corporate partners, and demonstrating how New York State benefits from their inclusion in our workforce. Together, through NYSID Works!, we extend our thanks by enhancing the communities around us.”

Good Reasons to Opt for Digital Printing

Digital printing offers a host of advantages over traditional offset printing. If you’re in need of printing services for your company’s print collateral, consider the many benefits offered by digital printing.

  • Avoid printing more than you need—With offset printing, plates are used for printing, meaning there are high start-up costs and you have to print a large batch to make it worth it. With digital printing, there are lower costs for short run printing, so if you only need a few materials printed, you can easily do so with this method. This will keep you from printing more than you need, thus saving you money and reducing paper waste.
  • Print different versions of your piece—Digital printing makes it easy for you to print different versions of the same piece. For instance, if you want to personalize your mailers with the recipient’s names, you can do this easily digitally.
  • Keep your materials current—With digital printing, it’s easier than ever before to update your printed materials to keep them current and accurate. Little tweaks can be made without adding to the cost of printing.

These are just some of the great advantages offered by digital printing. When you need reliable, affordable commercial digital printing, trust IMS. Learn about our full line of services at www.ImmediateMailing.com.

How to Get More from Your Direct Mail Pieces

October 26, 2011 imsadmin 0 Comments

Thanks to advances in online marketing, many companies have started to overlook the power of direct mail marketing. They mistakenly buy into the idea that all print marketing is dead, and that’s just not the case. When done properly, direct mail marketing can produce a higher return on investment than almost any other form of marketing.

To maximize the results of your direct mail campaign, you need to adhere to the following tips.

Hire a Professional Direct Mail Agency

Direct mail agencies make marketing easy. They can help you with all of your printing needs, ensuring you get high quality direct mail materials that catch the eye and instantly boost your company’s credibility.

Before you choose a direct mail agency, make sure you first take a look at their work and their prices. You want to make sure you choose a printer that always delivers high quality materials at reasonable prices. Low quality direct mail pieces make your company look cheap and unprofessional, and spending too much for your direct marketing kills your return on investment.

Send Your Direct Mail to a Targeted List

If you’re sending your direct mail to people who aren’t interested in the products and services you offer, you’re wasting your money. To get results, you need to make sure you’re sending your marketing pieces to your target audience. It’s all about the quality of your mailing list.

Don’t have a mailing list yet? You either need to start working on building one or consider purchasing a quality list from a reputable vendor.

Make Sure Your Pieces Have a Clear Call to Action

Every piece of direct mail that you send out should have a clear, strong call to action on it. You need to tell the reader exactly what the next step is that you want them to take. You might want them to call you for a consultation, or you might want to direct them to your website. Whatever it is that you want them to do, tell them clearly. Otherwise, they won’t do anything at all.

Track Your Results

Track everything. That’s the key to figuring out what’s working with your direct mail marketing campaign and what needs to be tweaked. By tacking your results, you’ll end up optimizing your direct marketing spend over time, allowing you to increase your ROI for better results.

Following these direct mail marketing tips is the key to running a successful, profitable campaign.
