In the professional world, the documents, fliers, and forms that your business prints have a considerable amount of power. When the resources your company uses are vibrant and crisp, they help boost your business’ credibility from a potential customer’s first interaction with you. But the world of managed print is full of different routes to pursue and choosing the best decisions for your company can be difficult.
Choosing between printing in-house or outsourcing can be a tricky decision. Many assume that since they can afford a less expensive printer, they should automatically pick in-house. However, unless a business has a large budget for a professional printer, they will limit themselves to the print possibilities available through outsourcing.
Here are several considerations to help you decide if outsourcing or in-house printing is the right move for your business:
Can I Vs. Should I
Today’s print equipment market has a full of a range of products that offer prices affordable for nearly any business. Because print equipment is so accessible for companies, purchasing a device is often done without much thought, since it is assumed that is the best choice. Many companies will choose less expensive equipment just for the sake of having one, which can lead to many problems.
Having the ability to purchase a printer doesn’t mean that you should. Buying a cheaper product can lead to lower quality prints and increased costs on possible repairs and maintenance that comes with an inexpensive device. Cheaper printers will give you fewer options and will limit you from being able to emboss logos and use quality, glossy paper products.
If purchasing a professional printer is not an option for your business, outsourcing prints is a smart choice.
When a business chooses to outsource, they are choosing to partner with a company who is an expert in print marketing. These professionals will be able to provide you with insight on print psychology, ensuring that your prints are going to be effective to viewers. This partnership will lead to proper fonts and logos, improved graphics, and consistent copies.
