Our Top Tips For Choosing The Right Print Company

When you are considering business stationery or marketing materials you may well turn to an online print shop to look after all your printing services. Before you decide which route you take, there are several elements of any print company’s offer you may want to consider before giving them the green light. Check out our top five tips to help you make your decision.

Quality of Print

The first thing you will need to check is the quality of the print products produced by the online print shop. Shoddy print will give a poor impression of your company so it’s important to check that the print you’ll receive will look professional and meet the needs of your brand. Do some research into some examples of work the company have available and make sure the finish options you choose represent your brand and the product you’re having printed. You may find that you need more help before you make your choice and this is where we come in. Birch offer a full service consultation to help you understand the options available so that you can make a more informed decision about your print provider.

Amount of Products Offered

If you’re looking for complete brand consistency, you should check to see if the printing company offers all the products you’ll be needing. For example if you’re looking for a range of business stationery, have a look to see if the company offers letterheads, envelopes and compliment slips. You might also be on the hunt for some flyers to support your promotion or launch, so be sure to check whether the company offers posters or promotional items to help broaden your print project and attract more customers to your business. It’s important to check that the print company has all the products you need to ensure brand consistency and to create a favourable impression on your customers.

Flexibility and Bespoke Work

If you are looking for something a bit different or you’re looking to revamp your print portfolio, you may benefit from a more bespoke service. Birch has over 30 years of experience and our team will advise on everything from material choices, print processes and finishing options and then formulate a plan that works for you. Whether you’re looking for a complete change and need a full print audit or simply looking to order a set of stationery with us, we’ll have a good chat and come up with a solution that works for you on all levels.

Customer Service

We all love good customer service, whether that’s in our local restaurant or whilst buying a new car, we want to feel special before we purchase our experience or goods.  Having a warm and friendly person at the end of the phone will ease the print buying journey for you.  It’s always much more relaxed and easier to get the result you want if you are working with a company that prides itself on its customer service.


It’s so  important to choose a reliable print service so that your products arrive with you safely and in good time. Have a read of  customer testimonials or any online reviews so that you can form a  better understanding of the service they provide. Birch have teamed up with a variety of customers in different industries and have worked on a diverse set of project briefs over the years.
