Frequently Asked Questions
Why use a print management company?

Using a print management company will save your business time and money.

Most clients we encounter are wasting money in 3 areas:

  1. Not using the full range of the market
  2. Not having an efficient print buying process
  3. Supplying incorrect print specifications, risking costly errors & reprints

By outsourcing your print buying process your business will save human resources that can be used in other areas.

Why Print?
  • Magazines and newspapers deepen engagement by communicating longer and more specific messages
  • 75% of people still prefer to read printed literature over digital media
  • Magazines yield the highest ROI of all media, using just 10% of ad expenditure.
  • Direct Mail has a ROI of 40% making it one of the most effective marketing channels.
  • Print is both green and sustainable, unlike reading on a screen, which always requires batteries or AC power. Paper-based marketing has a smaller carbon footprint than digital marketing, since carbon emissions are only produced once, during the creation of the product. Meanwhile, carbon emissions occur every time someone uses a digital device.
  • Paper can be sourced from environmentally friendly and renewable suppliers.
