As a Mercury client, you are assigned a primary and a back-up Customer Service Representative (CSR). Your CSR is an experienced printing specialist who becomes thoroughly acquainted with every detail of your publication. Your CSR is your first line of contact and proactively works to ensure that your job stays on schedule, is free of defects, and satisfies requirements. In addition to your CSR, your sales representative, our prepress manager and director of creative services are available to respond to your needs.

We provide data services such as CASS Certification, NCOA Compliance and merge/purge/de-duping of multiple mailing lists. We can help identify cost savings opportunities such as pre-sorting in place of standard rates when applicable—as well as offer list acquisition and more complex list hygiene services.
Your printed material can be processed with straight inkjetting or Cheshire labeling to more complex, personalized (laser printing) projects involving 2-way matches and multiple pick-ups with envelope insertion.
