By Florie Lyn Masarate
With many printing companies now catering to the different needs of the people, and with many others offering the finest service that you could ask for, people are given choices to choose from when it comes to printing. But it always pay off to find the right printer that offers these four important aspects: quality, quantity, expertise and affordable prices. Here are some things that you should consider in finding the right printer.
On-site printers. Some copy shops tend to send your work to another off-site printer, thus you get to pay the extra cost and consume a lot of time waiting. Another thing is when sending your file to someone else. They may not have the right equipment available to get the job done and the changes if something went wrong in the process.
Making use of digital printing. Printing materials in small amounts would be better done with digital printing. This makes printing more fast and efficient and with less cost. Inquiring beforehand if these printers digital printing capacity would be helpful as you go on with your printing.
Check color swatches and proof. Good printers will not run the print job without showing first a proof. It is better to see the actual swatches that will be used before printing to be able to see what the result would be. This would be most assuring if your work is done online. There maybe changes that needed to be corrected before your work is printed to avoid problems in the end.
The right size printer. Finding the right size printer to cater to your service would insure saving money and resources. The differences between printing small and large prints should always be taken into consideration. If it is a big printer, you would have to pay more than what is required. And if it is too small, the tendency is that they would not have the right equipment and capabilities to make good printing jobs.
Decide on your own paper. Letting the printer decide what paper type to use is not advisable if you want to add good presentation on your print job. Just try asking them for advice and make the decision yourself. Keep in mind that the paper you use will determine the quality and result of the printing.
Ask questions. Never hesitate to ask questions especially about inks, paper and even the press itself. The person running the printer would be more than glad to explain and show to you how the process is being done. Consider these as paying for the printing job and having a bit of an education about printing in the process.
