Is One-Off Printing Costing Your Business?

It’s bad enough that one-off printing projects call to mind that “reinventing the wheel” cliche, but it’s worse when you consider who has to do it. A stand-alone project usually means that someone who has limited experience in initiating, placing, and shepherding a print job to completion (and who certainly has better things to do)—is “awarded” the responsibility to do just that. And to quote another often-used phrase: your results may vary.

Great People Can Make Less-Than-Great Decisions

Print jobs can quickly take an employee out of his or her comfort zone. There are unlimited print resources available, and there is little way for an unfamiliar shopper to know what factors are most important. Vendor selection is, at best, a “best-guess” situation.

Project quality can vary, subjecting the company to uncertainty and even putting its image at risk. Reliability is usually an unknown, and delivery is a source of worry. The affected employee may resent being put in this position. And even if that employee tackles the job with enthusiasm, there is little way to know if even a job that came out “good enough” might have looked better, cost less and ate up fewer employee hours if another supplier had been chosen.
