But We’ve Always Done It That Way! Words that make us cringe.
Just because your business has always done it that way does not mean you should continue, especially if the business is not generating the revenue it could and should.
Just because you’ve always used MS SQL Server does not mean that’s the best way to handle your mission-critical customer data.
MySQL or even Cassandra might be a better solution – Facebook obviously believes Cassandra is superior, and made a significant change in their production systems because of it.
Until now, you’ve handled your printing one of two ways. You’ve either sent everything out in small batches, or short runs, or you’ve waited until you have zero on hand and sent huge orders to whomever bids the lowest. Neither of these are efficient.
Short run digital printing is great for emergencies, or unexpected situations.
It can be a lifesaver. It’s not, however, appropriate for day to day printing needs. Quantity always saves money, whether you’re buying widgets from a factory in China or printing services.
Bidding every print job because you work with companies that only do one aspect of printing well, and taking the lowest price every time, also is inefficient. Cost is never the primary reason to choose someone to handle your printing. It can be relevant, but it’s not the absolute. Quality, speed, and reputation are more important overall.
Using multiple companies results in visual inconsistency, problems with quality, problems with not receiving materials timely, and problems with cost control.
What’s the answer? Print Farm handles all aspects of printing and fulfillment under one roof. This creates consistency. It also ensures quality, with one individual responsible overall for your account who can make sure that everything produced is of the highest quality. Quantity of one particular item printed can certainly reduce costs, but with one company responsible for all your printing needs, the total quantity of printing drives costs and prices down significantly.
You might need some short run digital printing today, to fix a situation, but you also need large quantities of brochures or posters, for day to day operations. By combining all of these things within one company, you ensure that you’re getting quantity discounts for the totality of your printing rather than just for the number of any one item that you print.
