One of Denmark’s largest manufacturing companies was going to use two big display boards at a trade fair in Oslo, Norway. The display boards had still not arrived shortly before the beginning of the fair, and they could not be traced. This was a serious problem, which needed sorting out quickly. The company’s in-house advertising department asked if we could deliver new display boards to Oslo the very next day. We certainly could! We received the images via ISDN of the display boards that had to be printed, mounted and laminated. Proofs were produced in Odense and then the job was transmitted by ISDN to Allkopi in Oslo, one of the partners in the IPN (International Printers’ Network). Three hours later, on the same day, Allkopi delivered the finished display boards to the customer at the trade fair. Just the savings made by not having to dispatch the boards by courier were sufficient to cover the printing costs.One of Denmark’s largest manufacturing companies was going to use two big display boards at a trade fair in Oslo, Norway.

This case shows how co-operation between professional members of the IPN guarantees significant advantages for the customer:

  • Considerable savings are made in terms of both time and resources.
  • The on-line connection between IPN partners extends the production facility, so that the job can be done at the most appropriate location.
  • Optimal quality is always ensured, since IPN is based on mutual trust and many years collaboration.
  • The sender and recipient share responsibility equally, with the Managing Director taking responsibility for the overall quality of the job.
