YAY FOR LOVE! | We Celebrate Australia’s YES Vote

rainbow ink splash celebrates the yes voteYES VOTE! |  Australia has resoundingly voted Yes! to marriage equality and gay weddings in a historic result last week. 7.8 million people cast their vote for “YES” and the nation has truly shown its support for the rights of same-sex couples to wed.

Vote Yes For Local Business

As a family-run Australian business, we couldn’t be more proud that the yes voters of Australia have shown support for our friends and family who, until now, have been forced to marry overseas in countries that recognise the right for gay couples to walk down the aisle. Now, with this result in the survey, we expect to see it legalised here soon so that those couples will have the same right to marry here in Australia, using Aussie wedding experts to help them plan and arrange their special day.

Vote Yes For Beautiful Design & Designer Printing

Watermarx is delighted with the yes vote result—we say bring on the fabulousness! We love a good wedding and can’t wait to work on invitations for the weddings. From letterpress, to foil gilding, stamping, embossing, debossing, we can’t wait to discuss papers and inks with you. Finally, the time is now to start planning a beautiful stationery suite that celebrates the love of your union, here in Oz!

TOUCHING STUFF | Tactile print will be $1.9bn industry

A report that released this week from BCC Research in the USA, announced that the tactile printing market will grow by 60 percent. The experts predict that the industry will be worth $1.9bn in 2022, globally.

They cite the reason being the growing demand for innovative packaging. The report says that businesses are now seeking out-of-the-ordinary packaging to grab a consumer’s attention. More and more consumer business are using tactile features like embossing and debossing for their packaging and labels, which is driving a boom in dimensional printing.

The author of the report, Robert Eckard, says, “Where a product’s packaging can more wholly engage a potential purchaser through tactile elements, this can be a competitive edge for one product over another. Sensory marketing was born of this consumer preference for pleasing tactile elements in packaging.”

We are excited to be one of Australia’s leaders when it comes to emerging technologies around this trend. We have seen print embellishments go from a luxury add-on to a key marketing strategy for brands looking to cut through. This is why we have invested in CLIQX technology.

With CLIQX, printers are now able to offer everything from braille printing for the visually impaired, to a crisp emboss or deboss. Now, it seems, the market is truly realising that there is more to this than just zhuzhing up your product packaging or business cards. Tactile printing has a number of functional purposes and is driving purchasing decisions.

Watermarx has been in on this secret for a long time. Our passion for the romance of print is inspired by the powerful impact that we know can be made when you engage your customers’ sense of touch. We didn’t need a report to prove it, but we’re chuffed that research is now saying what we have known all along!

Talk to us anytime about how we can get your customers’ senses tickled with the sensory delights of tactile printing.
