As a print broker, you supply a professional printing service to your customers. When it comes to the print you supply the buck stops with you so when you’re choosing your print supplier, check that they offer a service you can stand by with confidence. Your reputation and your business depend on the reliability of your trade printer and that covers a number of areas you need to be sure of including:
Ask about a trade printer’s production management systems. How do they identify potential bottlenecks? How can they guarantee their deadlines? Exactly what quality control measures do they have in place? How do they want their artwork? How do they identify errors and how do they correct them?
Staff and staff training
Does the printer have extensive training programmes for staff? Are they trained on each machine? Does the printer have a continuous improvement programme to ensure staff are always fully up to speed with new presses or print techniques? Staff are the most important element in any business and all the staff in your chosen printer must be experts in their field. As a print broker, they’re effectively your staff too.
What presses do they use? Are they up to date? Are they maintained? Have they enough high-quality presses to ensure the best service even if something breaks down or goes offline for maintenance or servicing?
Go to the printer’s website and check its user experience. Is it easy to navigate? Can you get instant quotes and see all the choices available? Can you upload artwork and order online? Can you download editable artwork templates in the format you require? A modern trade printer should make quoting, ordering and delivery easy, quick and hassle-free.
As a print broker, it’s absolutely vital that any print you supply bears only your name and that your print supplier guarantees they will never contact your clients or mark jobs or packaging with their branding.
Make sure your trade printer offers an extensive range of delivery options. Can they guarantee next day delivery if required? Can you track your job from order to delivery? Get the sort of assurances your customers will ask of you.
