7 questions to ask a printing company

What services do you offer?

Now this question sounds obvious but it is important to ask a printing company what services they offer. By doing this you will ensure that they tell you exactly what services they provide.

At Print Worx, we offer a wide range of services including graphic design, digital printing, litho printing, exhibition and large format printing, fulfilment and direct mail.

Do you provide end-to-end print services?

Finding out the exact services they offer is important especially, for example, if you require design work.

If a printing company offers graphic design services as well as printing this can be seen as an advantage, especially on ‘lastminute’ printing requirements that may come up.

Similar can be said for a print project is required to meet an urgent mailing date.

What are your turnaround times?

Knowing the turnaround times, they offer will be key for your internal print planning.

There is nothing worse than planning to print marketing materials for an event only to find out the printing company can’t deliver in time.

At Print Worx, we like to offer our clients as much flexibility as possible, so we don’t set specific turnaround times for individual products like other companies do.

However, as a general guide, expect a turnaround time of 48 hours to 5 working days for business stationery, leaflets, brochures and posters.

Why should we choose to use your printing company, what makes you different?

You want a printing company that is creative and professional so ask them why they are different.

At Print Worx, we not only understand business but we are also marketing led and have qualified chartered marketing and print experts working within the company.

We believe this gives us the edge over our competitors and provides our customers with more experience and knowledge about print.
