Pros and Cons of Acquiring A Handwriting Machine for Your Organization


In today’s business world, first impressions are everything. You only have one chance to make a good impression on potential customers, so you need to make sure that your outreach is on point. One way to make your outreach stand out is by using a handwriting machine. But is this really the best option for your business? Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of using a handwriting machine for your business’s outreach.

The Pros of Using a Handwriting Machine for Your Business’s Outreach

There are several benefits to using a handwriting machine for your business’s outreach. It personalizes your outreach. A handwritten note shows that you took the time to write it specifically for the person you are sending it to. This personal touch can go a long way in making a good first impression. Outside of that handling the operation in house allows you to own all aspects of the operation, but it also means you need to take on expensive handwriting leases, pay operators, and deal with machine downtime and software bugs. Anyone who's owned an expensive printer understands the headache of getting high tech equipment serviced can be.

Cons of Using a Handwriting Machine

Given the advances in robotics and the options on the market the cost benefit analysis of owning a handwriting machine just doesn't add up. Alternatively LettrLabs can mail handwritten cards and envelopes with first class postage for less than $1.60 each. Given first class postage is now $0.60 that's less than $1 per fully handwritten card and envelope. Additionally, when you consider you still need to hand stuff each envelope the financial benefits don't make sense.
