Does your company rely on printed marketing materials or generate large volumes of documents? Outsourcing your print production can get very expensive. Bringing your print production in-house can offer benefits, including significant cost savings.
If you’re spending a lot outsourcing your print production, here are four ways that bringing it in-house can benefit your business.
1. Cost Savings: In-house print production can save your business over 30% of the total job costs. You will save on materials and consumables by only printing what you need, often using staff that has functions other than production print to produce the jobs.
2. Controlling Turnaround Times: Time is money, and controlling your project based on your schedule is a major benefit. With in-house print production, your creative staff can fine-tune jobs, test different specialty media, and ensure your output meets your expectations.
3. Consistent Branding Colors and Quality: In today’s competitive marketplace, consistent branding is necessary. Managing your brand strategy can become difficult without having control over the print process. Bringing your production in-house reduces the possibility of error and ensures that your brand’s colors, messaging, and quality accurately represents your business.
4. On-Demand Printing: Another benefit of bringing your print production in-house is the ability to print what you need, exactly when you need it. When you outsource, you generally order more than you need, increasing your costs and using valuable real estate to stock and store the jobs. With on-demand printing, you always have the most current version of your project, creating the most financially efficient and effective print process possible.
While the upfront costs can deter some businesses, keep in mind that bringing production in-house can save significant time and money in the long run. If you’re considering setting up an in-house production environment, give us a call.
