An online Substrate Bank has been launched by Dutch-based digital marketing agency Dipa Global.
Substrate Bank brings together print media manufacturers and their products to help with the sourcing and specifying of print substrates.
“We see the lines between industry verticals blurring as a result of technological developments and the typical entry barriers to digital print disappearing. This requires a modern strategy to connect with potential customers,” said Marco Stevens, sales and marketing director of Dipa Global.
Users of the platform can use industry-specific search criteria. After registration, users are able to connect with manufacturers directly - to request samples, ask for directions to the nearest distributor, ask about print settings, technical datasheets, etc.
Those brands currently involved are Contra Vision, Xanita, Desardi, Digital Magnetics, Neenah, Dreamscape wallcovering and Re-board Technology. More are expected to join.
