Is your organization growing? Are you looking to expand within your marketing and/or branding development? If you answered yes to either of these questions, then you are in need of a print management agency. This is a company that services all or a portion of your printing operations. For some, this could simply be acting as a supplier for your in-office printing materials. However, if your business is growing, you will be more in need of an agency that can handle printing services, equipment, and deliver quality printed materials for your organization.
In layman’s terms, a print management agency is typically an outsourced company that handles your print work. You’ll want an agency that has a strong, qualified team with exceptional leaders to project manage your account with quality service and products. They will manage your prints from start to finish, proofing to print, finish to stock, distribution and more.
Qualities To Look For In A Print Management Agency
When you are looking for a print management agency to partner with, you’ll need to consider key qualities in your top picks to choose the right one for your needs. There are common qualities such as stellar customer service, timely delivery of products, and fare pricing. In the world of printing, you’ll want to see other characteristics in your ideal prospective print management agency.
If they have a variety of products to offer, that’s a great start. A terrific print company will offer more than a few simple packages that include limited choices. You’ll want a place that will provide help in design and possibly graphics. It’s also best to find a company that stays up to date in the latest technology. Speed and efficiency are the keys to a majority of successful businesses, the same goes for a print management agency. Find a company that values and embraces the ever-changing technology world.
Your ideal print management agency should have an online presence, be reliable, offer ongoing support and numerous services, innovative, technically competent, have a quality portfolio, and be a team of people you feel confident in.
Questions To Ask Prospects
It can be a difficult feat to find a printing agency. In the likelihood that you are having trouble looking for one, ask for referrals from other companies that you’ve seen and liked their print work. Referrals can help ease your mind since you’ll know the quality of results that the agency is capable of accomplishing.
When you’ve narrowed down your print management agency prospective list, you’ll want to start making contact and asking to view their portfolio along with other questions. Some of those questions should include:
- How will they make your print strategy more efficient?
- Do they offer tailored solutions or a one-size-fits-all solution?
- Do they offer IT services? If so, how could that benefit your business?
- Can their services support multiple locations? If so, what about locations across state lines?
- Will they identify cost saving opportunities?
- How secure is their solution?
These are some questions that are recommended to ask your prospective print management agency before committing.
