Although the world is going digital, there will always be a need for print marketing – and 9 out of 10 people agree. When it comes time for direct mailing or printing promotional products, who do you go to, to get the job done?
The answer is easy: your local print company.
We can confidently say that using your local printing company over an online service or big wig printing company is just better. Not only do you actually get to interact with the materials, but you also get to interact in-person with the print team as well. Based on the number of reprinting projects we get from online services; we’d have to say that you agree.
But if you’re not convinced, here are 5 more reasons you should use your local print company.
When you print online or outsource printing, it’s hard to inquire about the best options for your project. It’s also hard (and costly) to get paper samples and print proofs. Meaning that you have no way to know what the final deliverable will look like. Yikes!
For some smaller projects, this step may not be all that essential. But for a large-scale print job, this is a vital step in ensuring your time and money are well spent. When you work with a local printing company, you can talk to a live person every time! No more opening a box of brochures the day of an event only to find that the margins are all wrong.
Most business decisions come down to one simple factor – money. Fortunately, many local print shops are pretty competitive with their pricing. Many online printers advertise low prices, but once you factor shipping, setup charges, and other fees, the project can become much more expensive.
Also, if you tell your local printer about a specific price quote you received elsewhere, they might be able to bring the cost down to better meet your budget needs.
Know Who is Working on your Job
There’s just something about being able to build an ongoing relationship with the businesses you work with. When you order online, that’s the end of your relationship. No getting to know the owner and no shared regional pride. And as any business owner knows, networking is a key part of growth. Who knows what collaborations and ideas will come from these types of relationships!
At our Greenfield print shop, we have a great staff who will guide you through the printing project. Our talented designers can guide you through the entire process, bring your ideas to life, and handle any redesigns promptly.
Talk Over a Problem
Every printing project is unique, just like your company or your organization. You have your own set of needs, projects, ideas, and issues! The best way to work through them and be sure you are getting the best for your money is by talking it over. And not just with anyone! You want to talk with printing experts who have experience in printing, paper, and print finishing. That’s what you get when you work with a local printing company!
Touch and Feel Samples
If you’ve ever been handed a beautiful, thick cardstock with a glossy finish then you understand just how important touch is when it comes to print marketing. When you work with an online company, what you get is what you get. But when you work with a print shop, you can hold a physical sample of the exact product you’re buying. If there’s anything you don’t like about the feel, or how the paper was cut, bound, trimmers, or finished, we can fix it.
What makes a local print shop better than an online service?
Your local print shop is brick and mortar and not online. Need we say more? While we do offer online print services, we couple that with personalized customer service. We’re online and convenient, but we’re also right here in Greenfield location – available when you need us.
A big piece for us is simply about being part of the community and being physically present for all of our customers. Building relationships, building trust, and being available for face-to-face communication.
Let’s Create Something Together!
