Printing Jobs are Not DIY Projects
Who among us hasn’t painted a room, or tackled a weekend project around the house? But most of us are smart enough to know (or learn pretty quickly, as in my case) what things we are better off having professionals handle. Think about how the same principle applies at work. Printing services are a great example.
You and your employees are most productive when you spend your time doing what you do best. But chances are, establishing specs, interviewing several printers, choosing the vendor, monitoring progress, final proofing, and distributing printed pieces are not highlighted skills on your resume.
What Are Print Projects Keeping Your Employees From Accomplishing?
At many companies, employees are forced to interrupt their regular duties to deal with the replenishment of frequently used documents. And the creation of sell sheets, flyers and other “one off” printed pieces sends them even further out of their comfort zone, eating up more time.
That wasted employee time can cost you plenty. But that’s not the only downside of handling printing projects internally. The people given that responsibility normally have little experience in sourcing a print project, evaluating potential vendors, or even describing the desired result accurately. Further, they are not experienced in costing out such projects.
It’s not their fault, of course. But if you make it their jobs, then you could experience unpleasant outcomes in terms of quality, timely delivery, and total cost. (Starting to sound like one of those ill-advised home projects again, eh?)
