Nowadays, not everyone has a professional printer, which is capable of printing at high quality and, perhaps, even in substantial quantities. Fortunately, there are dozens and dozens of services online that allow you to print online, at an affordable price and with excellent quality of both the materials used and the print itself. These tools can be very useful, for example, for those who have their own business and want to print advertising flyers, posters, business cards and so on.
But then how to choose an online printing service that is right for us? There are some things to consider.
Evidence of the goodness of the press
It would be advisable to rely only on services that can provide you with proof of the quality of the prints made by them. How? In reality there are several: textual or video feedback from users who have used the service, photographs or even samples sent for free. The possibilities are many. Our advice is not to rely on services that do not give you the opportunity to ascertain whether the customers before you were satisfied or not. Remember that, on paper, any service can provide you with the best prints on the market. Practice, however, is something else. The requirement of the best printers is there too.
In this regard, another aspect to keep in mind is the relationship between the quality of the prints and the price for which they are carried out. Make sure that the service you rely on makes it clear which materials it intends to use, so that you can evaluate for yourself whether, as they say, it is worth it.
The presence or absence of professional graphic designers
Of course, you probably already know how you want your print to be done. But the presence, or not, of professional graphic designers within the team you choose to rely on can be decisive for the success of the products, as well as being a very valuable help during the design phases – if you need it.
Availability of customer service
This is something that not many tend to take seriously, but it can act as a watershed between great business collaboration and bad service.
Employees who maintain contact with the public, or in any case customer service , must prove to be reachable and available, in order not only to respond to any doubts on your part, but also to be able to promptly update you about the status of your order. A phone number, an email contact … the possibilities are so many.
The cost of shipping
You need to keep this in mind right away. Unfortunately, the cost of shipping can cause the overall cost of work to rise (sometimes by a lot).
Rely on services that can provide you with a quote in this regard, so that you have everything clear right away. Some services do not ship unless a certain quantity of prints is purchased; others, on the other hand, offer free shipping if a certain quota is reached. Everything varies according to the managers.
