DPI is Springfield's choice for black and white digital copies. It is just one of our specialties.
Whether you have an electronic file or hard copy, we have the capability to produce big copy jobs very quickly.
Our commercial high-speed equipment provides high-quality images.
When you need fast, inexpensive copies of higher quality than you can get on your office copy machines, give us a call. We're ready to help!

Color Printing

The demand for full-color printing is greater than ever. Studies show that full-color printed materials are more "influential" and promote higher response rates than two-color or black-and-white materials.
Adding color does cost more, but it serves a useful purpose.
At DPI, we can print about anything in color. Give us a call 417-881-5309

Spot Color Printing

Grab attention by adding some spot color to your printing project. Spot color can be one, two, three or more separate ink colors added in key locations on a printed piece.
Spot color can be less expensive than 4 color process printing and still add some depth and pop to your marketing or sales piece.
We have hundreds of ink colors to choose from.

Laminating prolongs the life of your printed projects by protecting the color and increasing the durability. Laminating also protects the piece from finger smudges, dirt and tears.
Laminating is great for things like menus, sales flyers, gift cards, company policy sheets and anything that may need to be hung on a wall for a prolonged period of time.
At Digital Print Ink, we offer the Springfield area laminating options in a variety of sizes and thicknesses.
We can also mount the laminated piece on foam board or add an easel to the back. This is great for counter signs and for use at trade shows.

Next time you want to add a little something extra to your printing, let us laminate your printed projects for you.

Hole Drilling

Drilling holes is part of the finishing process with printing materials. At DPI in Springfield, we have powerful paper drilling machines that allow for many different sizes of paper drills and enable us to position the hole just about anywhere on the sheet of paper.
Consider 3 hole drilling your company newsletter, sales flyers and other printed marketing materials. Studies have shown that people tend to save printed items longer if they are three-hole drilled. Marketing experts think that subconsciously we tend to feel like we need to put a three-hole drilled sheet into a ring binder or save it for future reference.
No matter what you might need in the way of drilling, we can handle it.

Many carbonless forms and invoices require sequential numbering. Numbering is an inexpensive and effective way to maintain accurate records and improve organization.

Digital Print Ink offers the Springfield area a finishing service of numbering on most types of forms. We can number in one or several positions on the form and on most types and sizes of paper. Choose from black or red ink, as well as descending or ascending numbers on most printed projects. Your form can also have perfing and be made into a wrap book for convenience.
Raffle tickets and hang tags are just a few of the many items in addition to carbonless forms that may require numbering.

Call us today; we can help!

Perforating a printed form can create an easy-to-remove response card, coupon, or customer feedback form. It can be added to a self mailer as a 'push' for the receiver to respond

We have a variety of perforating blades giving you flexibility when designing pieces that need to separate effortlessly. We can also design pieces that can stand up to the rigors of post office mailing equipment without pulling apart.

Our highly trained and knowledgeable staff will happily offer suggestions and solutions for your perforating needs.

Paper Cutting

Our commercial paper cutters feature high-pressure hydraulic clamps to prevent paper shifting and razor-sharp carbon steel blades to guarantee the most precise cuts.
We cut all day long and we are good at it.
Give us a call at 417-881-5309

Shrink Wrapping

Shrink wrapping is great for printed items which may be stored for long periods of time. It not only keeps out the dust and debris, it also helps to keep out moisture, something that can be problematic when trying to run back through a desk top printer.
Consider shrink wrapping as a bundling solution when separating printed materials out for a large sales force.
We use high-quality shrink wrap materials to provide you with an attractive and secure method of bundling larger quantities of printed materials.
We can shrink wrap materials as small as a business card and as large as 11 x 17 posters.

Stitching is another word for stapling. The difference is that stapling is generally used when you're trying to bind together a smaller quantity of sheets and is done with lightweight desktop equipment. Stitching generally requires an industrial-sized, floor-mounted piece of equipment.
Saddle-stitching (staple through the spine) is a sturdy, durable, and attractive binding option. The number of pages our saddle-stitching equipment can bind together varies depending on the weight of the paper used, but the results are the same every time: nice, clean, and professional. We can saddle-stitch magazines and other multipage items such as catalogs, annual reports, and newsletters.

Give us a call at 417-881-5309


Collating is the process of gathering and arranging the individual pages, and any other elements of a printed project, into a proper sequence.

Our high speed commercial copiers can collate automatically, saving you the the time and expense of collating by hand.
Sometimes printing projects will need some additional hand work and at DPI, we are ready to assist.
For any type of collating, we'll make it easy. Give us a call at 417-881-5309

book binding

Book(let) Binding


Booklet (Saddlestitch)

Saddle-stitching is a sturdy, durable, and attractive binding option.

This method of binding takes your loose sheets and collates them together with 2 staples in the middle to form a professional booklet.

The number of pages our saddle-stitching equipment can bind together varies depending on the weight of the paper used, but the results are the same every time: nice, clean, and professional.

We'll do this in any finished size you need.
We can design, print and bind your next manual or catalog. Give us a call at 417-881-5309.

Coil Binding

Coil binding, is another commonly used bookbinding style for creating documents, reports, presentations, and proposals.

This binding style is known by a number of names, including spiral coil, color coil, ez-coil, plastic coil, plastikoil and coilbind.

Documents bound with spiral coil have the ability to open flat on the desk or table and offer 360° rotation for easier note-taking.
Durable and strong, this binding method is often used for documents that need to be mailed.

We also provide printed covers or plain covers in a variety of colors. Clear acetate covers in varying weights are available to use for both the front and back of your book.

Give us a call for more information at 417-881-5309

Comb Binding

Comb binding is one of the many ways to secure pages together into a book.
This method utilizes round plastic spines,19 rings, and a hole puncher that makes rectangular holes.
Comb binding is also referred to as plastic-comb binding or spiral-comb binding.
At DPI, we have a large variety of different-sized comb bindings. Sizes range from 3/16 of an inch (for 10 sheets of 20# paper) up to 2 inches (for 400 sheets of 20 pound paper).
Also available are different colors of spines to enhance the appearance of your project.

We also provide printed covers or plain covers in a variety of colors. Clear acetate covers in varying weights are available to use for both the front and back of your book.

To learn more about comb binding, give us a call at 417-881-5309


Stapling is a simple and effective method for keeping multiple pages together.

Our high speed Xerox equipment will add staples to your copy job easily.

We also have a stitching machine, which will add staples to any of your printed materials you may need to keep together in this manner.

We can use just one staple or multiple staples located along the top or the side.

Call us today at 417-881-5309

Wire Binding

Wire binding is known by a number of different names, including spiral notebook binding, twin loop wire, Wire-o, and double loop wire.

This binding method is similar to comb binding, but instead of a plastic comb the pages are bound with a double loop wire. It is very sturdy, but pages cannot be replaced without re-binding

We also provide printed covers or plain covers in a variety of colors. Clear acetate covers in varying weights are available to use for both the front and back of your book.

It is a preferred method for product or sales presentations, as it is a clean, professional look.

mailing services

Mailing Services


Automated Bulk Mail

Why consider automated bulk mailing? The advantage is the tremendous postage savings (up to 50%) compared to first class mail. The Post Office offers postage discounts when some of the work is done for them.
Automated bulk mail requires presorting the mail according to 3 and 5 digit ZIP codes. Presorted mail is easier and faster for the USPS to process. The ease of processing allows the Postal Service to charge less postage.

Here is and explanation of the bulk mail process:

We'll take your address database and process it for bulk mail.

Your list must be CASS Certified. CASS is a United States Postal Service (USPS) acronym for Coding Accuracy Support System. The term CASS is widely used by the USPS when they refer to the verification status of an address list. In order for an address list to receive CASS certification, it must be checked against the USPS Address Matching System (AMS) and the 11-digit delivery point ZIP code and corresponding barcode must be added. Only addresses with the delivery point ZIP code and barcode are eligible for "automation" bulk mailing rates.

Your list is also processed with NCOA (National Change of Address) software. This is now a requirement for bulk mail. The software will identify and change automatically any addresses on your list that have been filed with the Post Office for change of address.

We also check for any exact duplications your list may have.

Once your list has been processed, your addresses along with the correct barcode will be applied to your printed pieces. Then they will be bundled properly, put in trays or sacks and delivered to the Post Office.

DPI maintains the most up to date postal software, ensuring your mail will be processed for the best possible discounts.
Your mail piece must also meet certain guidelines set by the USPS, in regard to size restrictions (length, width, and thickness), weight restrictions, and design/layout requirements.

At DPI, we stay up on the latest regulations from the Post Office so you can rest assured your mailing will pass inspection every time!

Give us a call today, 417-881-5309.

Tab Sealing

Tabs (also called wafer seals) prevent the open edge of your mailer from jamming the Postal Service's high-speed processing equipment.
A requirement of the USPS, all self-mailers must have the correct number, size and placement of tabs.
Our mailing services department can apply tabs required, easily as part of our inline mail processing capabilities.
We have the knowledge and expertise to make sure your self-mail piece has the proper size and placement of tabs to comply with the USPS rules.
We use translucent tabs, so your design will not be covered.
If you are considering using a self-mailer, give us a call. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Mailing Lists

When sending out a direct mail piece, you will need a mailing list.
Typically this list can come from your current database of customers and/or prospects. What database (or portions of it) you use depends on who you are marketing to and what your goal is with the piece you are mailing out.

When you wish to target specific groups of people or a particular type of prospect, then it becomes necessary to rent or purchase a mailing list.
Your goal with this is to find a list with names that you feel could be prospects for what you have to offer. The key is to give some thought to who your ideal buyer is and then go after a list that will have a high percentage of that kind of prospect in it.

There is a lot of information you can request when purchasing or renting a list:

  • Geography – area where the list names are located

  • Age – helpful with age related products

  • Home Ownership – this qualifies the list for several related purposes

  • Household Income – especially helpful with larger purchase products

Too often the list itself is overlooked as a key element in a direct mail campaign. That’s why it's important to engage a direct mail expert, such as DPI, to help. We will find just the right list for your direct mail campaign.
For more information, give us a call at 417-881-5309

Every Door Direct Mailing

Another direct mail option is the USPS Every Door Direct Mail program (EDDM).
It means every mailbox in a specific location receives what you are sending. You do not need a mailing list. There are no personal names or addresses on the mail piece, instead it will typically say something like 'Postal Customer'.
You choose the area to mail to, by neighborhood, zip code or city. You can mail to specific city or rural routes. The USPS offers a special map to help choose the specific areas you want to mail to.

Some of the benefits of EDDM:

  • No mailing list required. This saves the cost of maintaining or purchasing a list.

  • Small mailings can be quickly produced. Most city carrier routes are 300-600 addresses. By eliminating the time to gather a mail list and address the mail piece, and by using digital equipment for printing the mail piece, a small mailing can be in the hands of prospective customers in just a few days.

  • EDDM mails as a flat size. This gives you more room to design an effective, eye catching message. And the larger size means your mail gets noticed in your prospect's mailbox.

  • The mailing panel can be very small. Since there are no requirements for a barcode placement and the mail does not go through normal mail processing, there is more room for your message.

  • You can mail to residential dwellings and businesses.

  • Your mail piece will be in a better condition when it is delivered. Regular mail must be run through the USPS mailing equipment, which can damage or mark your mail piece. But the EDDM mail skips this step, keeping your design beautiful.

  • At DPI, we are the experts for Every Door Direct Mail in the Springfield area.

Non-Profit Mailing

While there is not a non-profit 1st class discount rate, there is a significant standard bulk mail discount, a savings of 40% on postage.
Too much money is wasted by nonprofits each year simply because they are not aware of this, or they have not taken the time to complete and submit the required paperwork to qualify.

Many, but not all, nonprofits are eligible for reduced bulk mail postage rates from the U.S. Postal Service. Your organization must meet certain eligibility requirements, submit an application, and receive an authorization from the USPS where you will be doing your mailings. This is a free service and can take up to 4 weeks to become approved to mail at non-profit postage rates.

There are also requirements for your mail. Get a copy of form 3624, available from your postmaster or your local business mail entry unit.
DPI mails for many non-profit organizations in the Springfield area. For more information, give us a call at 417-881-5309

Variable Data and PURLs

People are more likely to open and read mail which is personalized to them. It raises the level of curiosity.
Personalization can be as simple as "Hi John, we've got a special deal for you"

However, with digital technology, personalization is taken to a whole new level:

Variable Data Printing (VDP)allows elements such as graphics, text and images to be changed from one piece to the next. This enables you to be more intentional about your marketing strategy by providing a way to personalize any printed piece. Different versions of the same printed piece can be automatically printed on a digital press.
For example, a postcard direct mail piece could be printed in one color for men and a different color for women.

PURLs take VDP one step further. A personalized URL (PURL) is a unique and personalized Landing Page created especially for each recipient of your direct mail or email marketing campaign.
The premise is fairly simple. When you add a PURL to a print or email marketing campaign, each recipient will receive their own unique website link, associated with their specific account or contact information.

Somewhere on a print piece, such as a postcard, flyer, or newsletter, the PURL will appear as a printed personalized website address. [For an email campaign, it will be a clickable link.] In both print and email, the address is unique to each recipient, so no two are the same.

When the customer clicks on or types in their unique url, the website they are linking to will use that PURL to identify the visitor and deliver personalized content targeted specifically to them.

PURLs are really the ultimate marketing tool. They are an effective way to connect with customers on a very personal level. As such, they're good for verifying and updating customer information, presenting highly targeted offers, and eliciting feedback. Purls measure tracking and click-through rates for a marketing campaign.

Top brands use PURLs all the time. You can too! Want to learn more?
Call DPI today for more information about how you can incorporate variable data printing into your company's marketing strategy.

Sales Process Management

Currently companies with salespeople find a challenge with the cost of generating leads and proper follow-up procedures.
Salespeople complain that leads are “BAD” and marketing complains the sales people are “LAZY” and do not work very hard at qualifying the leads. Faced with the need to grow revenue and the expense for lead acquisition, this causes many companies to abandon any lead generating method or even worse, throw more money at it hoping “something will work.”. This leaves the company dependent on the success or failure of salespeople to prospect and in essence, go it alone. This is not the process most company leaders want to base their success on.

Here’s how DPI Consulting Group can help you:

DPI Consulting Group works with companies and organizations to first understand the diverse opinions, expectations and breakdowns occurring within your current sales process. Then we make proven recommendations that come from industry standards and other recommendations that are unique to your product and service culture.
