We’ve all read an article or two about how the internet is going to replace all other forms of media. But while hundreds of these articles have spread online over the years, its effect in real life is quite the opposite. With all the scams and spam on the internet, people are putting more trust in traditional types of marketing—particularly in print. This is why as an entrepreneur, it is essential to learn how to manage this resource and consider print management to support your business.
What Is A Print Management Service?
Before we go into the discussion about what is print management, let’s talk about what you might be thinking. With your printer and computer in your office, it may be hard to imagine hiring a company to manage your printing for you. When you outsource your print to the professionals, you’re paying for two crucial things—quality and consistency.
Managed printing is all about ensuring the quality of all your materials and protecting your brand identity. How you present, your brand is as important as the products and services that you sell. Professional print management guarantees that your brand guidelines are always followed, files are always ready to print, and that you present a consistent identity to all your customers. This includes business cards, letterheads, with comps slips, stationery, brochures, manuals, and so much more. Considering all of these things, it becomes clear that a simple office printer won’t cut it.
Access A Trusted Network Of Suppliers
As professionals in the industry, your provider already has a vast network of suppliers that they can tap anytime you need it. There’s no need to go through the trouble of sourcing products and to meet suppliers on your own. Since they have an existing partnership, they’re also more likely to get pricing that’s lower than retail. This translates into more savings for your business—definitely one of the most important benefits of print management.
Your Go-To For Everything Print
When you get an end-to-end print solutions specialist, streamlining the communication process is easy. Your provider will serve as your single go-to for all your needs. Since you’re not running off to meet with different suppliers or manufacturers, you can focus on more important things like growing your business. Having a single point of contact is a great way to be sure that nothing gets lost in translation. Your print provider will help take your idea from concept to delivery by coordinating your vision with vendors, and ensuring that high standards are always met.
Significant Cost & Space Savings
At a time when office space is scarce, and rent prices are soaring, it doesn’t make sense to use the limited space you have as storage for printed materials. Included with most managed print services are warehousing and distribution support. Your provider stores your branded collaterals for you. Not only is this going to keep them in perfect condition, but it’ll also allow you to keep track of which supplies are running low, so you don’t overspend on restocking items that you already have.
