Telford, PA (PressExposure) September 19, 2009 -- I have gone through a lot of bad spots with a poster printing company. Sometimes, you just get unlucky and you choose a poster printing company that has bad customer service and an equally bad production ethic.
In my search for cheap poster printing, I encounter usually the "not so good" list of poster printers. However, in my years of printing posters for my firm, I have found a few good guidelines that I can follow to at least spot a good enough poster printer for my posters.
The goal really is to print as cheap as possible with the least pain and worry as I can possibly can. So to share with you this small pot of wisdom, below are a few things you need to learn to spot a good poster printing company.
â¢ Look for company samples - The best sign that I can give you to spot a good printer is to look at the company's printed samples. For traditional printers you should usually see these displayed in their lobby. Sometimes, you may also request to have sample prints delivered to you free just so that you can judge their quality.
Whatever your method is though, analyzing the sample poster prints is the best way to judge a printer since you can really gain insight on the quality and dedication of the printing work. So if you like the quality of the sample, you may want to consider that printer as the one or you.
â¢ Listen for good customer service - Another good sign is their customer service. Customers of course must always be treated correctly and a printer that has a friendly phone based customer service will usually be a good poster printer as well. If they have enough money to spend on good customer service, then their printing process should be good enough.
â¢ Watch for cheap prices - You should also try to canvass the prices of different printers. Some companies can be too full of themselves and command prices that are higher than most. Still you need not settle with these types when a smaller firm can do it equally well for a cheaper price. Search thoroughly and try to spot ones that offer cheapest but can still provide good quality.
â¢ Learn the best delivery options and rates - Finally, to really get the printer you can like, try to look at the delivery options. They will usually guaranteed delivery dates and delivery tracking features are one of the greats since they are really professional about their work. They deliver things right when you really need them.
I hate printers that do not promise guaranteed delivery times since my whole schedule can go out of wack especially if I need those posters at a certain date. That is why you need to learn the best deliver options and rates, and choose a printer with delivery guarantees. With those things bagged, you should have a good time.
Great! You should be able to spot the best poster printer now. Good Luck!
