IS YOUR WIDE-FORMAT PRINTING PARTNER HOLDING YOU BACK?MAY 14, 2018| SpeedPro
Wide-format visual marketing drives sales for your business. But the quality and professionalism of your printing and graphics vendor has a significant impact on your return on investment.
If you spend time and energy micromanaging your printing partner, ironing out mistakes or waiting on finished products, you’re not maximizing your marketing dollars. A true partner works with you to create wide-format visuals tailored to your specific business goals – and remains invested in your results.
Is your printing and graphics vendor holding you back? Here are some questions to ask as you look for a superior printing and graphics partner:
- How do they view their clients?
Does your printing and graphics provider view itself as a third-party vendor that processes orders? Or, do they consider themselves a long-term partner that collaborates with your business to find solutions based on your objectives?
Ideally, your printing partner should function as an extension of your marketing team. After all, printing and installation are simply two steps in the marketing process, and they should be optimized like all the rest. When your printing partner is knowledgeable about your big-picture goals for each project and campaign, you are better equipped to reach them. As you evaluate printing partners, ask questions to determine if they take an analytical approach to client needs.
- What is their work culture?
If you spend marketing dollars on a wide-format printing service, your provider should take your business as seriously as you do. The company culture at your printing and graphics vendor is important to consider, as it affects your customer experience.
It’s no surprise that printers with highly professional company cultures consistently outperform their more lax counterparts. But many businesses continue to partner with printers that don’t operate at the same pace or abide by the same standards of timeliness and communication.
At SpeedPro, most of our studio owners come from business backgrounds. They’re familiar with corporate protocol and communicate seamlessly with clients and their companies. As a business-to-business printing provider, our customers rest easy, knowing their vendor abides by the highest standards of professionalism.
- Are they personally invested in their work?
A superior printing and graphics provider values your time and your relationships with customers and delivers high-quality work on time, every time.
Quality should be your printing partner’s number-one focus. Ask about quality standards before you place an order, as well as how the vendor handles customer complaints or problems with the final product. A superior provider should work swiftly to correct any issues.
SpeedPro’s extreme resolution levels and unparalleled color matching technology create top-quality marketing solutions for clients. Our owners and their teams pride themselves on their creative, strategic and consistent work – and they’re personally invested in its quality.
