Obviously, outsourcing is a great way to take advantage of professional expertise and free up internal resources. But there’s a lot more to gain than that. Here are 7 benefits to your business when you choose to work with a professional printer.
1. There Are Far More Options
If you could just see the storage area of your typical printing company. More than likely, it’s jam-packed with the types of printing resources and materials your company could only ever dream of purchasing and storing.
From huge stores of paper stock to binding materials to all kinds of enticing options for document covers, business cards, and direct mail – there are so many options you’ll need someone to help you narrow your choices when it comes to your next job. That brings us to Benefit #2…
2. A Professional Printer Offers Free Advice
When you outsource your printing jobs to a pro, you’re getting instant access to printing experts. Unlike most business owners and their staff, these experts know the ins and outs of paper stock, ink, and printing methods (not to mention the complex machinery that brings it all together!) like nobody else.
What card stock should I use for business cards? How do I choose a brochure style that resonates with my audience? How do I incorporate images into my direct mail project?
These are only some of the questions we get, which we’re happy to answer for our customers every single day.
And when it comes to producing printed material that does its job to make your business look good, making the right choices is crucial. Having an expert there to guide you with suggestions means you’re getting the professional input you need to make your print jobs stand out.
3. You Benefit from Using Better Equipment
A professional printer offers not only free advice, but also much better equipment than most businesses will ever own or operate. Better equipment means better results.
Look for these types of printing equipment. Having equipment like this is a sure sign of a professional printer:
- Sheetfed Presses
- Letterpress Equipment
- Bindery Equipment
- Signage and Large Format Printers
- Prepress Equipment
- Variable Digital Printing Equipment
- Direct Mail Equipment
4. It’s Faster
Nobody on earth ever ordered a print job where faster delivery wasn’t preferred over a slow turnaround time. Big-house printing companies simply have the expertise (benefit #2), the equipment (benefit #3) and the in-stock materials (benefit #1) to get the job done faster than you ever could on your own.
Plus, when you outsource the job, your staff has more time to get their own work completed on time (that’s actually benefit #7, coming up).
5. The Sky’s the Limit
Better equipment, reason #3 to go with a professional printer, carries with it all sorts of benefits. One of them is enjoying absolutely no limitations whatsoever on what you can do.
Your creativity is not limited by the types of materials available. It’s not limited by the type of printing you’re able to do. It’s not limited by the size and scope of the project. It’s not limited by anything at all- see what we mean? You dream it, and a pro will find a way to make it happen. The sky is the limit!
6. Long-Term ROI
Business owners who tend to take the DIY route and do their printing in-house aren’t necessarily saving money. Remember: printing is done on expensive machines, even if it’s only your basic office copier. And, like all machines, the more you use them the faster they break down or need service.
Going pro with your printing job means all the wear and tear takes place at the printer’s expense, not yours.
7. Efficient Use of Resources
Doesn’t your team have better things to do than to babysit the company copying machine? When it’s important to use resources wisely (and when is it ever not important?), outsourcing these types of tasks to a professional printer just makes sense.
Besides, laborious printing jobs are just bad for morale. It’s hard to think of any scenario where spending hours tending the company copy machine is seen as anything but a punishment. It’s boring, dusty, mind-numbing, and boring. Did we mention boring?
Don’t punish your staff by tasking them with huge printing jobs. Instead, leave it to Las Vegas Color Graphics so your team can get back to what they do best – making your company great! Give us a call and we can get started today.
