How to Choose a Printing Supplier

Every business relies on a network of suppliers and relationships. A printing company is usually one of the companies in this mix. Even if you primarily use digital when it comes to your marketing materials, there will be things that you need in physical form. If you’re searching for a Perth printing company, quality of work and affordability are two important factors.

You might be asking whether you still need a printer in today’s digital environment. Yes, because your prospects still engage with and sometimes even expect printed materials, such as business cards, as these are still navigated physically. This means that you need to be selective about the printing company you choose because quality affects the translation of the message.

Quality + Time + Price.

Some printing companies offer cheap prices, but the quality isn’t up to the mark. Others promise you a great price and the quality is fine, but you have to wait weeks to get it (maybe it’s being sent from overseas). A good printer should be able to offer all three: quality, fast turnaround time and an affordable price.

When determining if a printer offers these three metrics, check their history. What are their customers saying, and how long have they been in business? Are they keeping up with the latest trends in printing? What machines are they using to produce quality prints? Can you ask for samples of their work? These are all the types of questions you should ask.

Successful commercial printers of today invest in the latest technology and equipment. They’ll be able to provide you with design and marketing knowledge to best tell your brand’s story. It’s more than just sending a pre-made design and getting it printed. Your company of choice should double as your designers and conceptual artists.

If you’re weighing up a few printing companies, do these six things: 

  • Visit their printing premises
  • Check their past work. It might be high-quality, but not quite the style you’re looking for. It’s always good to check this.
  • Research their history. How long have they been around for? Check reviews.
  • Discuss green credentials & how they invest in environmentally-friendly practices.
  • Talk about cost. Quality should be your number one focus, but good printing shouldn’t break the bank.
