What is a print management company?

At Birch Print, we offer print and print management services. But what is printing management? Essentially, it’s taking a print brief and managing it from start to finish; from initial design to finalised artwork, proofing to print, finishing to stocking, to final delivery and destination. In a nutshell, a print management company manages the whole print process, so you don’t have to! There are many benefits to working with a print management company. We’ve taken a look below:

Specialists in buying and managing print

Most companies don’t have the core skills that are required when it comes to buying and managing print. So, by employing a print management company, you have the peace of mind of knowing everything is in safe hands. They will do all the ground work for you, sourcing the right materials, finishes and printers within the agreed budget. They will also ensure your company has a good return on investment when it comes to print – providing you with the best possible options.   And they will ensure the best savings, price and quality of print is established.

The economical choice

A good print management company can save you money as they specialise in sourcing the right supplies and suppliers for each project. However, it’s important to be careful when choosing the right print management company for you. Don’t simply choose the cheapest option. Ask to see samples of previous work as well as case studies and recommendations to find one that is better suited to your needs.

One point of contact

By enlisting a print management company, you reduce the number of contacts involved in the printing process, which can become overwhelming. A print management company will usually provide you with one point of contact for each project. And it is their responsibility to deliver the job as per your expectations, on time and on budget.

Free’s up time to focus on core business

Using a print management company helps to reduce the burden of managing and administrating print related tasks. This leaves you to focus on your company values, products and services, staff and customers. You are free to focus on your core strengths while they deliver theirs.
