COMMON MISTAKES PEOPLE MAKE IN THE PRINTING INDUSTRY
Hiring employees solely for the task of managing printing requirements don’t make sense for most companies, especially from a financial perspective. For this reason, many businesses outsource their printing needs to print suppliers in an attempt to cut costs and save time. However, when doing this, many don’t select printers from a strategic point of view and end up paying more than they should be for low-quality material.
By appointing a print management company, you can avoid mistakes like these as the task of finding the right vendor for your various needs, negotiating pricing with them, and keeping a check on quality, are all taken care of by a specialist. In case you still insist on managing your printing yourself, to help you make error-free decisions and receive high-quality services within your printing budget, MLB Print Management Inc. has put together a list of the most common mistakes people make in the printing industry, and how to avoid them.
1. Looking for the absolute best price. Often when companies decide to outsource their print solutions, to save money, they choose to hire printers who quote the lowest prices. Unfortunately, the lowest priced printing doesn’t necessarily equate to quality results. The old saying “you get what you pay for” is never more accurate than in such a scenario. Simultaneously, finding great quality print management experts to outsource printing to at a reasonable price can also be a challenge, but that’s where we can help!
2. Relying on one printer to produce all your projects. Another mistake most companies make is that they rely on their local printer to produce labels when that particular printer specializes only in marketing print products. As a result, they lose out on quality. At MLB Print Management Inc., we rely on hundreds of print vendors to help us find the very best product based on our client’s needs.
3. Thinking that a print broker will be more expensive. In almost every case, a print broker should be cheaper and not more expensive. This happens because we shop client projects around to various vendors who want that work, and in doing so, we can provide lower pricing because they excel in that specific type of work.
