Over the years, most businesses have decided to outsource their printing in order to obtain high-quality and professional print materials that they simply cannot replicate in house. In addition to a much better end result, most have found that outsourcing to a printing company often saves valuable time and money.
If you purchased a digital printing system that is the same quality as what major printing companies in the United States operate, you would immediately put your business in a hole to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars to hundreds of thousands of dollars. This estimate does not include printing supplies, repairs and maintenance and remaining up-to-date on industry best practices. Not to mention the labor hours that goes into turning out the quality that your business needs and deserves.
At the end of the day, outsourcing to a printing company is almost always the best choice. But how, exactly, do you go about choosing the right printing partner for your business? Below are a few tips to take into consideration when searching for the perfect match.
Tip #1: Innovation and Flexibility
When choosing a company offering printing services, it is important that you select someone that is innovative and provides the flexibility that your business needs. For example, do you need an online platform that helps with brand consistency and makes ordering your marketing collateral quick and easy? If so, then only consider printing companies with marketing asset management – like DMS’s DigiFLO.
Tip #2: Financial Stability
Before selecting a digital printer, make sure you also learn more about the business, including their financial stability. The last thing you want to do is choose a company that goes out of business and leaves you stranded and starting to search process all over again. For example, DMS, Inc. landed in the Inc. 5000 fastest growing businesses in the country – which shows the business is growing and expanding and is therefore less likely to fail in the foreseeable future.
Tip #3: More than Printing
When choosing a print provider, make sure they are technically competent and offer more than just print services. Great printers offer advice, recommendations, graphic design, storage, technology solutions, and a variety of other things to ensure that your business is getting the most out of the partnership.
At the end of the day, having a great printing company by your side can help your business be more successful, while also saving you valuable time and money. Choose a print provider that you can trust and that you know will be there for you when you need them the most.
