3P Direct Continues Online Growth

The Print & Packaging People (3P Direct Ltd) has racked up another business milestone with the launch of the new UKPrinting.com website. The Mansfield firm have been developing the site for over a year. The new website includes several cutting-edge features that hadn’t been seen before in the promotional products sector.

Richard Tyler, Co-Founder and Director of 3P Direct said; “Customers can now upload and immediately see their logo on thousands of printed products. This in itself has been done before on a basic level, but not in a lifestyle photography setting. Previous solutions were also always poor when accessed on a mobile device.  We have invested over £200,000 in the development of the site, making it a significant project with both internal and external teams collaborating over the last 12 months to bring our vision to life.”

New Websites for UKPackaging.com and UKPrinting

“Our new technology will allow site visitors can view their printed product on display before purchasing. This could be in a retail environment, or even at a sports stadium. After carrying out research before the site development, we were able to identify that very often, customers are landing on the site with a certain marketing budget in mind but they are not sure what products to buy. Our new website solves this problem. Not only does it show what their promotional product will look like when printed, it also offer comparison prices for printing the product in the UK, Europe and if time permits, in the Far East.”

About 3P Direct

3P Direct has been trading for 15 years, with UKPrinting’s sister site, UKPackaging. UKPackaging.com has since become one of the largest ecommerce sites for next day packaging in the country. It now has more than 30 account managers and support staff helping customers with their print and packaging requirements.

Tyler added, “We are now very well positioned in the online market place as it is genuinely unique to have both sites and all this industry experience under one roof.  We are different from most print and packaging merchants and we do have our niche. We offer clients both their promotional and packaging solutions and our websites show our growing product range. Our larger customers really buy into the model and we look after some pretty big brands these days. Time and time again we’ve helped customers drive more sales via printed promotions and then we’ve seen the benefit when they start selling more of their products and require more packaging fromus as a result. ”
