We're Grateful to YOU for our Best of Print and Digital “Four-Peat”

Thanks Again…and Again and Again and Again for Our Fourth Print WIN!

It was tempting to start this post with “we did it again.” But that would be shallow–and wrong.  I am proud, however, to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, Superior Business Solutions has been recognized with a “Best of Print and Digital®” award for our print management services. But it wasn’t all our doing – for the most part, it was yours, in two ways.

First, the award itself is based on survey results from our customers. Thank you for all your kind comments. And we appreciate your willingness to provide positive feedback to the research firm.

Want More Time in Your Workday? Here’s How to Get It.

by Tim English - VP Superior Business Solutions on February 13, 2020

Want More Time In Your Workday_ Here's How to get It. Save Time. Do More. Get Home.

Save Time. Do More. Get Home.

Where can you find extra time in your workday to concentrate on the important stuff? Easy: spend less time on the other things. That’s called efficiency. And Superior Business Solutions was built to bring more efficiency to businesses when my grandfather Robert English started it in 1924.

The company was called Superior Business Forms at the time. And one of its first products was customized sales order books. The books automatically created an extra copy of each order, while the salesperson only had to write down the details once.  That meant they could spend more time getting new sales, and less time on busy work for the old ones.

It’s almost quaint to think of those simple transactions today, as we deliver the benefits of newer technologies like online printing. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The story has just begun! read more…

 Hungry? Maybe You Need 3D Printing 

Want to Grow Your Business? Here’s Some Food for Thought

If you think the importance of print is declining, you just aren’t paying attention. Print is as strong as ever, with more unique and creative ways to use it developing every day. I saw research recently that suggests 3D printing could be a potential source of functional foods customized to each person’s needs, providing particular nutrients and disease-prevention properties.

We aren’t there yet with foods, but 3D printing is gaining significant traction as its capabilities are becoming mainstream and accessible to more businesses and industries. The future of printing is bright and exciting. Thus, I felt it was time for a quick reminder that Superior has the experience and depth of resources to be your go-to for any and all printing needs. read more…

Are Printed Promotional Calendars Old School or Still Cool
Printed Promotional Calendars Will Never Be Outdated…Here’s Why!

Ever wonder why you still see so many printed calendars around, even with all the high-tech digital calendars on iPads, smartphones and more? Simple. People like them. And people use them. Recently, I noticed a post that does a good job explaining why.

It was based on a social media post in which someone claimed that the days of the printed calendar are numbered. (Well, I’ll admit that the days on printed calendars are numbered. But I don’t think that’s how they meant it.)  And the author notes that many people responding to that post disagreed strongly.

Who “Still” Uses Printed Calendars?
