What To Ask When Choosing A Printer

We all know that having something or a series of things printed for your company can be an expensive process and a time consuming one too! It is therefore key that you find a printer that you can rely on and feel comfortable with so that each job required is done seamlessly and without a worry! Ideally, you would like to choose one printer and stick with that printer… We’ve put together some points you will need to consider when choosing a printer near you!

Does the business promise quick-turn-around time?

Although it is preferable that you stay on top of your work and get to your printers on a timely manner as to avoid a rush or any mistakes – we know this isn’t always possible! Make sure that the printers you choose are flexible and willing to go the extra mile so that your work is printed on time!

Do they offer the services you require?

A good printer should offer a range of services so that you are able to go to one store for all your printing requirements.

  • Delivery books

  • Calendars

  • Invoice books
  • Swing tags
  • Posters and Much more!

Have they got a few years of experience behind them?

Choosing a company with experience and knowledge is vital. Always ask if the company can they do a sample of your business card, leaflet, flyer, advert, calendar, menu etc. before printing the bulk of the work so that you can assess the quality of their printing services. DB Print has over 40 years’ experience in the industry

Do they offer competitive pricing?

You should be able to get discounted rates for bulk printing, if not the company may be taking you for a ride!

Does the company do different finishing?

DB Print offer a series of in-house finishing, these finishes include; laminating (matt or gloss), dye cutting, machine embossing, book binding, wobblers, punching and eye letting, machine folding, clothing labels/swing tags, verko (raised glossy embossed effect) and shrink wrapping.

Does the company have a delivery facility?

We are all pre-occupied with our own core business responsibilities and most of us don’t have the time to think about printing too. Having your printers deliver to you – provides you with more time and less responsibility!

Do they do both Litho and Digital Printing?

Litho printing is a good option for faster printing and has the added benefit of being more environmentally friendly (chemical free) too. Digital printing is ideal for shorter runs, urgent jobs and personalized printing – this is a more cost effective option.

Can the printers do your design work in-house for you?

This will save you the hassle of finding a separate graphic designer and printer!
