Creative Services & Production
To generate response – whether you are after more members, more donors, more subscribers, or more of another type of respondent – you need “words and graphics.” That means not only copy and design but also the ability to produce those “words and graphics” in the most efficient formats for the proposed job.
Creative personnel at AMS understand that, no matter how extensive their talents may be in copy or design, they are – first and foremost – salespeople. Using the latest generation computer equipment, they know how to combine creative innovations with the practicalities of print production.
AMS production specialists work directly with the creative staff, using their knowledge of format, equipment, and suppliers to maximize the quality of the finished job while minimizing the cost. Our production professionals are active in the industry. They stay current with new trends in paper, printing methods, lettershop procedures, and the ever-changing U.S. Postal regulations.
The work of the AMS creative group doesn’t stop with the initial mailing package or space ad. They are equally involved with the “back-end” -- with fulfillment, conversions, renewals, terminations, or lapses. The entire AMS staff is results-oriented, attuned to quality control throughout every phase of a project, from concept through implementation.
The AMS creative staff is also very comfortable with deadlines. They are acutely aware of “opportunity costs” and understand the dollar value of fast turnaround, so you can be assured the schedules, which are agreed upon, will be diligently adhered to from the start.
One call does it all!
AMS will help you take the lead and keep it -- no matter what the competition.
