|What we pandas do||Why?||Do other printers do that?|
|Study your project.|
If we spot something, we advise on the design and finish that will look best in print.
|Things look different on paper, compared to your computer screen. We don’t want you to end up with something that’s not right.||Not usually.|
Many companies will print your order without a second glance. Then happily deliver to brief but not meeting expectations.
|Barcode every print job.|
This means we can tell you the status of your project anywhere in the building.
|We think it’s just good communication, for a start. It also cuts down errors, which cuts down our overheads… which cuts down the cost to you.||Rarely.|
This is top of the range equipment and not all printers are as keen to invest in the future as us.
|Give free printed hard-copy proofs.|
To review, alter and keep.
|There are no surprises here, you need to know what to expect.||Most don’t.|
You normally have to pay for things like that.
We’ll give you a machine-printed proof on a range of different types of papers for your project.
|It removes the guesswork and shows you options you may not have considered before.||Very rarely.|
Many companies charge for this service, others simply wouldn’t do it.
|Storage and call-off.|
We’ll store large quantities of print on your behalf. And deliver from store within 48hrs.
|It allows you to take advantage of economies of scale. Print is kept safe and in mint condition.||Maybe.|
If they have the capacity. Just be sure to check how quickly and reliably they deliver.
|Get the same results, for less money.|
We’re creative and resourceful. We find ways to print your ideas, within budget.
|If we know something will look the same, work and be a more cost-effective option, we think you should know. It’s just good business.||Probably not!|
Be alert. Up-selling is rife and many printers are happy to let you spend as much as possible.
|Recreate artwork from printed sample.|
Even if you don’t have the digital files, logos and other images, a printed copy is enough.
|Files get lost. It can also be awkward or hard to get original files from your current printer – we don’t need them though.||Sometimes.|
Double check that your new print company has the same design ability as the last.
