5 tips to achieve quality printing
So you’ve got your direct mail piece designed and now need to get it printed, but how do you go about making sure you pick the correct printer? Here’s 5 tips to help you choose. We hope you find it helpful!
Ask Around – See if colleagues have used a certain company for printing, ask them questions and see if they were happy with the work and whether they would use them again.
Plenty of options – Whether you want to produce a few or thousands of copies, the printer needs to have a wide array of options to meet your requirements. Generally you should be able to specify your preferences with regards to size, paper type and finishing options as well as printing methods.
Fast turnaround time – If a company can produce ahead of your schedule and has clear outputs then that printing company is a good pick. The faster the company can produce the prints with good results the better for you.
Good realistic rates – They may not have the lowest prices but they shouldn’t be too expensive either. It may be worth paying a little extra to ensure that you achieve the quality you want, remember that cheap prices may mean cheap looking prints!
Quality Output – Printing companies will normally have samples of previous work, so ask to see these to inspect the quality. Most printers can also provide you with a proof copy of your designs so that you can see exactly what you will be getting.
