It could be one of several reasons that you are looking for a commercial printing company. Perhaps it’s the first time you’ve needed this scale of printing, you’ve been assigned a new position that put you in charge of managing printing resources, or maybe you’ve just been burned in the past and want to do your research right this time around.
Regardless of the reason, we’re happy to help clear things up.
As the largest privately held commercial printing company in Nevada and being housed in our over 100,000+ square foot facility, we can tell you several important things you need to know.
What to look for in a good commercial printing company:
- Large scale, all in-house capabilities.
A good commercial printing company will perform every service they offer in-house. This nearly always leads to better results, because the team collaborates directly with one another to drive your project to completion. In-house capabilities also tend to reduce production time for faster turnarounds because nothing has to be sent out for development or production.
- A strong track record.
A good reputation is everything – and in the commercial printing business, this is certainly true. If possible, work with a commercial printing company that has a strong reputation in their area, and can provide references or case studies when requested.
Ask to see samples of printed work. A reputable and skilled commercial printing company will be more than happy (proud even) to flaunt their work.
- A full range of services.
As your business and your needs continue to grow, you will be much better off if you already have an established relationship with a commercial printing company that can do everything you may want or need to do. From digital printing to variable imaging and everything in between, a full range of capabilities also leaves the door open for more creative ideas and new campaigns in the future.
- Specialty capabilities beyond the typical scope.
Creative capabilities like embossing, foil and die cuts can take your print materials to new levels. Whether you choose to use this capability right now or not, the resource is valuable because you do not know when you may need that service in the future – possibly on a tight timeline.
Fact: Las Vegas Color has been the preferred choice for high-end specialty printing to the gaming/hospitality and advertising markets for over 30 years.
- They can handle large volume.
This one may seem like a given, but it is an important question to ask. Volume is an important piece of the overall puzzle because it will eventually affect your print campaigns.
Don’t be shy to ask what type of printing equipment a printer uses. This will give you a good idea of their volume capabilities.
Las Vegas Color Graphics has invested in the latest technologies and printing equipment like the Xerox iGen 150 digital press that is capable of 3,000 to 10,000 sheets per hour, depending on sheet size.
- A strong investment in employees and equipment.
Like any thriving company with a bright future, the commercial print company you choose should have a focus on talented employees and premier equipment. This is your best assurance for consistent, quality work that stays at the forefront of the industry.
