If you’re considering using printing services, you should give some serious thought to the location of the printers you are looking at.
At John E Wright, we understand there are many advantages to using a printers within close proximity to your business. Established in 1900, with a local print shop in Nottingham, we are now one of the leading large format print suppliers in the UK.
Here are our top reasons why you should consider staying local:
Choosing a local printer means a quicker turnaround
Ultimately, choosing a printer that is local to you means the turnaround of projects are a lot quicker. More often than not, choosing local rather than national means you are not just a number in a long chain of print jobs. You will therefore spend less time waiting for your order and materials will be more readily available.
Choosing local also means eliminating any shipping costs, which might occur with a larger national printer, keeping costs down and further reducing turnaround timings.
Enhanced customer support and communication
Local printers will more likely offer better customer support. Smaller, local printers are better able to provide a real-person customer approach, and are often more readily available to answer any questions or queries, whilst a national printing company might not have the time to do so.
Being in close proximity to your printers can also result in better communication about your order, if you are able to drop by and discuss in person any queries or concerns.
Build long-term relationships
Choosing local can result in building up a long-term relationship with your printer. Once you have an established relationship with your local printing services there is a mutual understanding between you both; you know what to expect from your print orders; you know how your orders will be handled; you trust how the job is going to be executed.
You might be surprised by the pricing
It’s a common misconception that by choosing national, you will save money. Local printers will often surprise you with their costs as they have less overheads. And if the numbers are a similar rate to national printers, you benefit greater from choosing a printer local with their personal touch and quicker turnaround.
And by building a relationship with a local printing service, you could also potentially receive discounted pricing or special offers with future orders if you continue to use them for your printing needs.
By opting for a local printer over a national printer you have made a conscious decision to help support a local business. Supporting local, within the current climate, is very important, as so many smaller businesses are struggling against the larger corporate companies.
By supporting local, you are also boosting your local economy!
Be invested in each others success
Success in your business will ultimately lead to success in your local printers. Everybody is invested in each other’s success and it makes for a better business community.
You will ultimately get better results and a higher quality print as local will more likely take the time to make sure it is right first time.
