1. Type of print services
Think about the types of print services that are available and what you hope to accomplish with your printed materials before you start comparing providers. Many people start looking for a company to order printing from before they even know what they really want and what their main goals are and this is a big mistake.
2. Digital printer
A digital printer may offer lower prices because this process is streamlined and it takes less time and effort to set up. Sometimes this method is not the best choice though, and you may need to consider other processes like offset and lithography for comparison. These other techniques may cost more but in some cases, they can give better results.
3. List of print services & companies
Create a list of print services and companies, and then start the evaluations between them. Look at cost, industry reputation, experience, and even online consumer reviews in order to get a full and accurate idea of what each company offers and can provide. You should never just use the first company that you find because you could end up regretting it.
4. Insist on a proof
Always insist on a proof from a digital printer or printing company before your order goes to the print phase. When you receive the proof look at it very closely and verify that even the smallest details are correct. A digital proof is not as desirable as hard proof, because the hard copy can be felt and is tangible.
5. Different print services
Evaluate the effectiveness of different print services as well as the cost of each. If something only costs a fraction of a cent more per piece but it adds a lot of pizzazz and gives your materials a wow factor that will impress then the extra cost is worth it. If a technique is very expensive and it does not do much for your finished item then it is not cost-effective.
Think about local companies that provide print services first. These businesses will usually provide personal attention and many benefits over using an online entity with no physical location. A local printing company will also usually offer faster problem resolution and you will be supporting your local business community at the same time.
7. Stock & Ink
Look at the different stock and ink options from each printer when you are looking for print services so that you know what is available and which companies can provide the products that you have chosen.
8. Protect the enviroment
How important is going green? Whether you use a digital printer or you choose offset instead it is important to think about the environmental impact your order can have. Try to balance your budget and the total cost of your order with environmentally friendly options that have a lower impact on the world that we all share.
Are there any guarantees offered with the print services? A reputable company will stand behind their products and services completely. Ask about any guarantees that may be offered and how often these are needed by clients. Make sure that you are aware of all the details before you sign any contract or order form.
10. Handle problems?
Ask about how the digital printer will handle any problems that arise from your print services order. What happens if the finished product does not match the proof? If you are unhappy, what will the business do to make it right? Asking these questions will help prevent any misunderstandings and ensure that the items you order and want are the items that you receive.
