To save on manpower, training, equipment and employment expenses, companies have learned to outsource their printed collateral to print management service providers. Many suppliers online offer affordable packages, but probably only a few can provide exemplary products and services. And since the process of ordering, payment and proofing is done over the web, quality is not assured at all times assured of and you might not always get the best results.
The supplier you’re considering could possibly have an impressive website and portfolio of previous work, but these do not guarantee that they will deliver pristine results. They might be eager and accommodating at the start, but how dependable are they throughout the entire process? There are certain qualities to look for in a supplier, and it is recommended that you find these traits first before actually ordering your printed materials.
The printing company---or its representative--- should be personable and deal with clients professionally. He must converse in a gracious yet proficient manner, keeping in mind the terms of a client-supplier relationship. He must be willing to listen to you at all times and be able to address your concerns in a responsive manner, all the while open to feedback and suggestions.
He must understand the entire print process the firm upholds and share it thoroughly. He must be well versed and educated on with the terms and technicalities of the printing industry and know all aspects of the business. He must know everything the company does for its clients. Only a company with a high level of competence can be an exceptional print management service provider.
A good print service provider focuses not only on providing fine quality printed output but also excels in providing top notch service as well. It should uphold and practice established quality checking procedures that ensure only the best results. You neither want falsely coloured logos nor faded promotional materials on the first day of your campaign, do you?
