Local Print vs. Online and Corporate Print

When choosing between online, corporate, or a local print shop, you have many options.

Online Print Companies

Pros of Using Online Print Companies:

Online stores are convenient in the fact that you can order online, order 24/7, and are usually less expensive. 

Cons of Using Online Print Companies:

  • The quality of the finished job compared to the proof can vary greatly.
  • The turnaround times can take longer.
  • If you are not great at design, online ordering can cause a lot of costly mistakes and reprinting costs. 
  • Online printers also tend to give themselves a lot of room for cutting, so anything with a border will most likely look horrible. 
  • Also, ordering online will most likely send your money out of town. 

If you plan to order a lot of printed materials, speaking to a local professional is a better bet for all of the reasons listed above!

Corporate Printers

Corporate Printing Pros:

Corporate printers are convenient, fast, and usually pretty cheap. 

Corporate Printing Cons:

The problem is most places like Kinkos, UPS, and Staples don't usually have a professional print specialist working there. Also, you will most likely have to print the items yourself on cheaper machines. This also means figuring most of the decisions about your print job yourself instead of a true pro helping you.

Professional printers and designers can help with colors, intended use, and help by recommending specialty papers and products that can create a much better value in the end.

Why Choose Local Print Shops?

First off, a lot of people have come to us for help after using one of the other printers we just described. Meaning, in the end, they had to pay more when trying to save a buck. Penny-wise and dollar dumb. 

Using local means keeping your money in the community, building a relationship with a professional, having a quick turn in hours at times, and saving money and having a better product in the end. I have saved our client's a lot of money by just letting them know about better options to accomplish their goals.

Likewise, a local professional is the best to help pick the perfect paper and help design the best-looking product. Printing is about conveying your message in the best way possible, and a local printer wins in my book all day. Choose wisely the next time you have a print project.
