By providing customers with Web sites customised to their look and feel, Web Services makes print providers a strategic partner. This dynamic branding application enables the print provider to control and customise the Web "skins" for individual print buyers, providing complete design control over the main print buyer application windows as well as styling control over the fonts, colour, and size. Providing customers with consistent Web presence in turn increases loyalty.
With the Web Services Book Assembly option, customers can dynamically create bound books, integrating multiple files or just a single file into a single book. Print buyers can soft proof a variety of content, binding options, and tabs prior to submitting the book for print.
