Print Audits

Free Print Audit | The Process is Easy

First, we’ll proactively survey your print usage through our audit brief. Not sure if you need a large or small print run; or what paper weight, size or quality will work best for your needs? Maybe you have questions on whether you should choose a leaflet, booklet or flyer? We’ll advise you to ensure you make the decision that is right for you.

When we have conducted and reviewed your brief we’ll assign the job to the most suitable printer. Because all printers are different in terms of equipment and expertise (not to mention cost) we’ll hand-pick the best match for your print job. Giving you the best quality, at the best price, in the format you want, delivered on time.

Finally, once decisions are made, we’ll manage the whole process for you, allowing you to focus on doing the key jobs you really need to do. No challenges to overcome or deadlines to chase. You can rest assured that we are on the case – so you don’t have to be.

We ask three key questions

1. How do you use your print?

The world is changing. Marketing campaigns need to reflect this changing world. There are targets that were once best reached through leafleting or advertising that can now be reached in a more effective and cost efficient way through a social media campaign.

When a printed product is the best way to market a product, you no longer have to use a scatter-gun approach and hope that your potential customer will see it. It is now possible to identify your perfect customers and target them personally. This laser-focussed approach significantly reduces your costs and increases your results.

We embrace modern methods of marketing and work closely with your marketing department to give them as much of their budget for being creative rather than it all going on print.

And of course, if you don’t have a marketing department, we have strategic partners that we can bring in to work with us.

 

2. How do you buy your print?
Most businesses order what they need, when they need it. While this appears to make sense, it doesn’t always add up financially. We look at your print needs over the course of a year and find ways to reduce your spend. 
3. Where do you buy your print?
 ‘Quality costs money,’- this can be true but products can be over-priced if you are buying them from the wrong place.

Did you know you could pay three times as much for the same job, purely because it is not suited to the press a printer uses? We stop that.

Many printers do all kinds of printing and they do a fantastic job. However, they are limited by the resources and the machinery they have. Although there are multiple options of how to print each job, only one of the ways will be the most cost-effective. It is understandable that a printer would prefer to print a job themselves than tell a customer they would be better off using another supplier with different kit – it is always a risk that they might use this alternative supplier next time. Instead, what typically happens is the job is done in-house, on the wrong press or is outsourced to another supplier and then sold onto the customer.

Printers in our supply chain benefit from having regular work that is perfectly suited to the machinery they own and significant reductions in the time they need to spend providing customer service and marketing themselves for new business. This enables them to give us significant trade discounts which we can then pass on to you, our customer.

Although our supply chain is setup to service the clients we are managing print for, we are also happy to use it and our expertise for the benefit of companies that would like us to get the best quality and value for print they require as a standalone service.

We understand that running a business is one of the most rewarding things you can do, but it comes with its challenges.

Let us take one of those challenges away for you. Let us do what we do best, so you can do what you do best.
