2017 was a great year for business because of the digital advancement. 2018 and beyond will be greater. One would be forgiven for thinking that this would rule out the need for printing and paperwork services. Alas, it does not! At least not in business because there are so many printing needs. You may be using awesome platform like Evernote, but you will still have a lot of printing needs in your business.
Here are reasons why any business should hire a professional printing firm
1. Get professional looking material
The printed material that you send to other businesses and to your customers will be the face of your company. Consider something like a catalogue or a brochure, or even a newsletter. Many recipients keep these for some time as keepsakes. If they are poorly done, that will be the reflection that they will have in mind about your business.
When you hire a professional printing firm for your paper needs, you can actually hold them to account if anything goes wrong with your printed materials. They are professional because they are expert at printing. So, printing fliers, business cards and others must be done by a professional printing company.
2. Save money on costs
You will save money, especially on maintenance and running costs. Ok, you might think that you will eventually pay for all the costs. However, if you have had an experience with your printer at home, you know how unreliable some ink cartridges can be.
This means downtime, which is totally not acceptable in business. By letting some professional firm handle the technical side of printing, you are eliminating downtimes that cause fiscal losses.
To hire a commercial firm or to run your own printing needs; that is the question. Well, like everything else, if there is equipment that needs to be maintained, you know that hiring/leasing is much better than buying. For the least of all the reasons for this, the company that you hire can worry about maintaining the equipment.
In in-house printing, it can be hard to get everything perfect the first time. Let someone else worry about that.
3. Print with the latest equipment always
A professional printing firm stays updated on what is happening in the technical world. The tech world is so dynamic such that what is in fashion today will be out of fashion tomorrow, replaced by another better gadget.
Unless you want your company to have a lot of electronic waste in its premises, you should hire a professional printing firm that will bother with updates happening in the world of printing technology.
4. Get your printing done on time all the time
Professional printing firms will work around the clock to meet the printing needs of business in good time. If you are printing a company magazine for the annual general meeting, you can be sure that it will not only be ready on time, but it will also be perfect. If you were to do this from a desktop application, there would be no guarantee.
5. Improved design
No professional printing firm worth its value in the market will agree to print material that does not conform to great standards. Thus, they will always have experts on board to advise your design team on the design of magazines, brochures and other company material that you need printed. Your design team will overlook many errors because they are not experts, but the design experts from the printing firm will pick the errors out and advise your team accordingly.
6. No added costs
Usually, what happens is that the commercial printing firm representatives come to you or you go to them, sit down and agree that they will meet all of your printing needs for certain duration of time. The cost agreed upon is final, there will be no arising costs within the agreed period.
