The more you know about printing costs the less you’ll have to rely on the print shop sales rep to tell you what you should be buying. Here are a few tips to help you save:
-One thing you can do is shop around when considering your print shop. They vary in prices and depending on how much you print and how many colors you actually need, you may have been buying unnecessary items.
-Another tip is to use standard sized pages because the shops can only order paper in limited sizes. If you have an odd sized page, for example, they have to order bigger paper, then cut it to fit the rest of the sheets in your newsletter.This/tag helps explain it more. It ends up costing you, the customer, more.
-The whiter the paper, the higher the price, so get just what you need. This also applies to the weight, the heavier it is the more costly it’ll be. Also think about price when considering coating.
-Avoid bleeds. The shop has to buy bigger paper for that too.
-Finally, you should simply just ask the printer how you can save. Changing one small thing on your order can keep extra change in your pocket.
