HP Examines Personalized Brand Printing in New Research

HP Inc. today unveiled new research – called The Personalization Pinwheel – to help brand owners tap into growing personalized printing in the production- and commercial-printing markets.

Based on insights from more than 45 million online conversations across the globe, the framework is said to focus on what motivates consumers to personalize – from photo books to magazine covers, to consumer packaged goods –  and how brands can capitalize on those motivations.

Nancy Janes, global head of brand innovation at HP Inc., commented: “Personalization is a powerful tool to create meaningful experiences with consumers. It increases brand loyalty and engagement and at the same time accelerates business growth and speed to market. HP’s digital printing capabilities are transforming how consumers connect to brands through personalized packaging and products.”

“In our eyes, personalization encompasses far more than just customized or stylized products,” commented Charles Ohiaeri, chief fulfillment officer for Zazzle. “It’s about how we can intelligently curate and contour the whole experience for those in our community – makers, designers and consumers alike. HP’s digital printing solutions allow us to serve our customers in ways we would not have considered previously.”

HP’s research uncovered the digital print advantages of the Personalization Pinwheel:

  • Fingerprinting: drive share of market through collectability of unique items
  • Flying Your Flag: drive engagement by personalizing products according  to heritage/ codes
  • Letting It All Hang Out: increase connection with Millennials and Gen Z by  celebrating consumer stories individually
  • Permission to Indulgence: allow consumers to tailor their experience of the world to their own unique preferences
  • Bringing Bonds to Life: grow penetration by expanding into gifting and e-commerce through fully customized products
  • Mindful Materialism: build value and differentiate through purpose by enabling consumers to express their own voice in solving social or environmental issues
