Companies come to me for inspired solutions and strategies, powerful content and captivating presentations.

My name is Trish Witkowski, and I help companies find solutions that can meet, or exceed, their marketing goals. I am an expert in creative mail formats and engagement strategies. What makes me an expert? I have spent nearly 20 years collecting, analyzing and documenting creative direct marketing solutions.

My Background

I have a specialized expertise in creative mail formats and engagement strategies for direct marketing, and I help companies find solutions that can meet, or exceed, their marketing goals.

At the core, I’m an analyst with great presentation skills. I read, research, ask questions, collect, and monitor trends. I pick up on patterns, tricks and techniques. I study successes and failures. Over the years, I have collected and analyzed thousands of print and mail samples from around the globe, and I share those findings with my customers. I have also done extensive research on the technical side of production folding and print finishing, even documenting folding compensation mathematics for the printing industry. In 2004, I was awarded the GATF InterTech award for my FOLDRite™ folding template system.

I am a professionally-trained designer with a master’s degree in print—a background that gives me a unique perspective of aesthetics + production. I jive with designers and marketing professionals, and printers like me, too. I have authored many resources, most recently Direct Mail (Simplified), and Paper Folding Templates for Print Design. I write for magazines and blogs, and have given webinars and presentations to international audiences. I love to share my passion for mail, which has led to online courses for Lynda.com, and a popular weekly e-video series “60-second Super-cool Fold of the Week”

The foundation for my nearly 20-years of experience is a Master of Science degree in printing and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in graphic design from Rochester Institute of Technology (Rochester, NY).
