{Sponsored} With more than 65 years printing social stationery, The Occasions Group prides itself on the breadth of services it offers designers and artists. The family-owned company, with its home base in Minnesota, strives to deliver those services through its focus on customer service and quality, as well as its strong work ethic.

With that in mind, designers looking for just the right touch to their printed pieces — because every detail matters — know that The Occasions Group can deliver.

“Our niche is social print,” said Meigan Westermann, of The Occasions Group. As the best printing partner for the nation’s designers and artists, The Occasions Group brings custom designs to life with digital printing, foil stamping, letterpress, thermography, die cutting and laser cutting.

When they’re looking to complement the fine details of a custom wedding invitation or other social stationery design, artists and designers know they can trust The Occasions Group, which has been in the printing business since 1948.

Recently, The Occasions Group has recognized a need for designers and artists of all sizes to have access to custom print services, and they knew they could deliver. After all, they’ve invested years in mastering presses, perfecting processes and learning advanced print methods.

They have the capabilities to offer those same print services to designers and artists who really want to “wow” their clients with high-quality pieces that showcase their custom designs and individual style.

With that in mind, the company has launched TOG.ink — an easy online ordering site where designers can upload their designs and create a product that really stands out with digital printing, foil, thermography, die cutting, laser cutting and, yes, even letterpress.

“Specialty treatments such as foil and letterpress are very trendy right now, and we want to make these accessible to all designers,” Westermann said. “We want to deliver something that thrills the designer and the end user every time. We get designers; we make it so easy.”

Not only easy, The Occasions Group makes it affordable because they can deliver those services at wholesale prices.

What’s more, designers can use “print pairings” through TOG.ink, allowing them to combine processes — think letterpress with foil! The custom combinations run the gamut.

“We want them to feel comfortable with all of the print processes,” Westermann said. “We hope to help them try new products or print types, potentially expanding their current offerings.”

TOG.ink allows designers to instantly create an account, upload their designs and start using the site. With a huge selection of sizes and paper choices, every designer will be able to bring their custom creation to life, delighting their clients and keeping themselves on-trend and competitive. The site even offers “paper goodies” like coordinating envelopes, pockets, napkins and coasters.

TOG.ink’s easy ordering process lets designers focus on what they do best: design, knowing that they can leave the printing to the print specialists. TOG.ink even offers a quick turnaround — as soon as three to five days, depending on the print type.

“We think we’ve got something unique and special with TOG.ink,” Westermann said. “We are not aware of any other companies that offer all the print processes from one shop with really good quality and easy online ordering.”

As designers start to use the site, The Occasions Group is hoping for feedback about how it works and what more they may want from it.

“We want to hear from our designers and will continue to launch new products there is demand for,” Westermann said.
