No matter the size, or nature, of your business, marketing is likely to be a major feature in generating custom. For many businesses this involves the production and distribution of printed marketing materials. These printed materials, however, are not free – and budget constraints can restrict both the type and quality of marketing merchandise you can afford for your business.

In the past, small businesses may have dismissed this particular marketing vehicle because of the cost of production and printing, but the digitisation of the printing industry has made these opportunities far more palatable for businesses of all sizes.

Here are a few reasons why any business, even those requiring small printing runs, should consider using an online print company such as Instaprint:

Mordern processes are highly cost effective

Traditionally, most print companies would only handle large order printing requests for flyers and leaflets. This was because of the time the process would take – aluminium plates to be custom-made for every order was a time consuming task – but largely because of the cost involved. The litho printing process carried large overheads which meant only large run orders could be cost-effective.

Today however, with the advent of the more advanced technology and the digital printing processes, even the smallest of orders can be cost-effectively produced and printed to the highest quality – even the composition and printing of a single poster can be produced quickly and at a competitive and affordable price!

Quick turnarounds with no loss in quality

This advanced digital processing not only allows short run flyer printing to be affordable, but also enables a much quicker turnaround process. However small your order may be, your printing needs can be accommodated in a rapid turnaround service – with no detriment to the quality of the printing or materials used.

Online ordering is easy and highly efficient

It is a really simple process to place your short run flyer printing order – the digitisation process allows you to simply complete an order form online, or you can receive a quote for the job immediately. On Instaprint, for example, you can go online, and receive an upfront price for the job. If a job is more detailed or complex, then the details of the work required – perhaps a batch of event flyers – to their production team, who will look at the job and advise on the design, and provide an accurate quote.

This ensures that the customer knows upfront what the costs and timeframes involved will be. This enables the customer to budget and plan effectively and accurately and, once approved, the designer can simply upload the relevant artwork for the flyer design and get the event flyers printed!
