You need on-time print projects, but not every printer can provide both timeliness and quality. So when you ask, “When will it be ready?” your commercial printer should be able to give you a precise date and time — and promise on-time print projects.
Here are some things to consider when you’re shopping for a printer to fulfill your project:
Timeliness: If a printing company promises you on-time print projects, can it deliver? First, a printer should be able to promise you a time and date your project will be complete — and meet that deadline. In addition, and perhaps more important, can the printing company complete the job on time while maintaining impeccable quality? You can ask for references and read reviews, but sometimes, you learn whether a printer excels at on-time print projects through trial and error.
Equipment: Does the printer have the proper equipment to fulfill short-run prints? If not, you may want to look elsewhere. You never know what kind of print project will pop up, and you want to have a capable printer available for it. Look for one that invests in the latest printing technology and trains its staff on how to use it.
On-demand services: If you need on-time print projects in a pinch, can your printer deliver? Do they have on-demand emergency services for quick turnaround times? It’s a good question to ask, just in case you need something fast.
Consider whether a printer has a reputation for being timely and meeting deadlines, but beyond delivering on-time print projects, make sure it also can provide value, quality and excellent customer service. And ask the printer to prove it by providing references from customers. Request samples of every print product you might be interested in.
