Most Printing Companies Are Lying When They Tell You They Can Provide a Complete and Totally Cost Effective Printing Service For Your Business
“The Simple Truth is, They Can’t”
If your business uses printed stationery of any kind, you can save a substantial amount of time, money and stress by taking advantage of a professional print audit.
Although Ultimate Print Auditing provide a total printing service for your graphic design and offset printing requirements, we are definitely not a printing company.
We don’t have a single printing press on our premises, no tins of ink, no stocks of paper or any of the other rubbish that litters your average print shop.
What we do have is 41 years of industry experience covering all facets of the printing industry plus a crystal clear understanding of what a true ‘printing service’ means.
Over many years we have formed a team of professional manufacturing print suppliers who give us what we want, when we want it, at the right price.
All your print . . . at a price you couldn't possibly match by organising it yourself
Our Ultimate Graphics Solution means you have every aspect of all your print requirements professionally managed from top to bottom, at a price you couldn’t possibly match by organising it yourself.
Our complete printing service includes full colour printing, brochures, postcards, business cards, newsletters, business stationery, envelopes, flyers, annual reports, computer stationery, cheques and all your sales and marketing stationery.
How can Ultimate deliver best price value?
We haggle with printing suppliers for the lowest price so our clients pay less for their printing than ever before. We do all the dirty work and running around so our clients don’t have to.
We know all the print industry tricks and tactics.
They can't lie to us.
No printer can be everything to everyone. Printers specialise. They'll never admit to you that they're not really tooled up to handle your job, but they can't hide the truth from us.
Printing companies are much less efficient when they produce work that’s not perfectly suited to their equipment.
All printing companies operate within specific market niches. They'll never admit it to you, but it's a cold, hard fact.
And when your job doesn't suit their niche, they subcontract your prtint out to another printer who specilises in that niche. And they don't do it for free. You pay more.
You see, printing companies order their printing presses and equipment to suit the specific niche market they selected when they set up their operation in the beginning.
Printing presses come in all shapes and sizes, from A4 to A0, from single colour to 6-up and 6-down.
Everything else in the industry comes in a hundred shapes and sizes as well. Unless you know what's what, you will give your job to the wrong printer. You pay more.
Here's a simple example of how easy it is to pay too much for a printing job.
If a printing company prints your 2 colour job on a single colour printing pressk, it will need to run through the press twice. You pay more.
If your job is printed on a 2 colour printing press they only require one run through the press and therefore will be on the press for around half of the time and consequently the ‘press cost’ will be around half. You pay less.
But, if your two colour job is printed on a 4 colour printing press they will not be printed any quicker than on a 2 colour printing press, but a 4 colour printing press is charged out at a much higher rate (because it costs more to buy). You pay more.
Specilised knowledge of this nature is why Ultimate Print Auditing is able to gain better pricing for your printing. You pay less.
Some printing companies are greatfor single colour printing, some are better suited to 2 colour printing, while others are better for for 4 colour work.
Some are better at short run work whilst others are more cost effective printing long print runs.
The whole lot of them will assure you they can handle your job perfectly. And frankly, you can't tell the difference unless you've also been in the industry for 40+ years.
Some can provide a full graphic design & prepress service and others just print from what you give them.
All print companies accept orders that do not really fit within their equipment guidelines, even though they are well and truly aware that they cannot produce the work cost effectively, and/or the quality may suffer.
Or they simply "sub" it out, mark it up, then bill you for the lot.
And you will either pay too much, or the quality will not be what you expected
. . . or both.
It's the difference betwen being PRODUCTION driven and CUSTOMER driven.
Because we're CUSTOMER driven, we get the best for you. We pick and choose, selecting only the best quality, best priced print suppliers, matching the perfect one every time with your job.
