Using Your Own Printer

Enthusem has a network of print vendors that will be used by default when you use the Enthusem software, however if you are a printer or have a print relationship you can print on your own!

Requirements to print on your own:

  • Enthusem ProPlus Account
  • Credits for Digital Features available in your Enthusem account
  • A printer with a digital press & postal indicia
  • There is a sample, finished mailer attached to this article

Here's what Enthusem will do:

  • Generate a CSV file with:
    • all necessary contact info (that was originally provided)
    • link to a variable image for the front of each mailer
    • link to a variable image for the inside of each mailer
      • This will include the mailer message, access code, etc

Your printer will need to:

  • Decide the day of the week and frequency they can commit to mailing
    • For example:
      • Every weekday
      • Every Friday
      • Every other Friday, etc
  • Obtain the CSV file from Enthusem
  • Presort (if desired) the CSV file using their own postal account & software
  • Create the print ready file
    • Pull the variable images of the front and inside 
    • Add the address block, barcode and indicia to the mailer
  • Print the PDF file on a digital press
    • Traditional Enthusem self mailer size
      • Flat file is 5.7" wide by 8.693" tall
      • Includes .125" bleed on all sides 
    • Trim off .125" bleed
  • Add tabs or glue to comply with postal guidelines
  • Prepare the mail for the post office, keeping it in sort order
  • Deliver mail to the local BMEU in the city of your postal permit

If you are ready to get started, submit a support ticket with the following info:

  • The company name on your Enthusem account
  • Printer's information
    • Contact name, phone number and email address of a contact at the print house
  • Specify First Class or Standard Postage
