Our QA System

Why do we need QA?

When we invest our money in a product or service we all hold certain expectations about what we’re going to receive, whether that be exceptional customer service or a pristine product in good working order. A quality assurance process is vitally important because it provides the foundation blocks for a successful customer buying process and provides a definitive structure for employees to follow in their day-to-day work.

Birch specialise in delivering printed solutions that effectively present our customer’s brands to the people who matter most to them.  The very tangible and visual nature of our products and services means it’s critical to have a well-defined, effective QA system in place, after all, our value proposition is to ‘effectively present your brand’.

Your brief and print specifications are the first port of call. The more accurate and detailed they are the better because it gives our team enough information to kick-start your print project successfully. Our experienced team of print specialists will carefully review your brief and specs to ensure every detail is covered and question anything that is missing to get down to the nitty-gritty of your project ahead of production.
