Why In-House Production Printing is Better Than Outsourcing

Posted on February 17, 2017

Does your business utilize a print shop for your production printing? If so, you’re likely losing a lot of money.
Aside from the standard markup on professional printing products and services, you’re also losing money when you have to have items reprinted. How often do you get newsletter or flyers back from the print shop only to discover a typo or the wrong color or paper? A print shop just doesn’t have the intimate knowledge of your company that you do. Moving your production printing in-house ensures that every single item you print will be exactly up to your standards. And it saves you money!
Those aren’t the only reasons to switch to in-house production printing. Here are 6 professional print capabilities that you can achieve yourself with in-house production printers from Centric Business Systems.

Image Quality
Your brand colors are meant to be instantly recognizable and invocative of your business. If the colors are off, you compromise that essential brand recognition. In-house print production keeps colors consistent across all platforms, and you’ll easily be able to keep an eye on all processes to make sure everything is coming out the way you want.

Paper Stock Variety
How many times have you had to settle for a run-of-the-mill paper quality? Or found a perfectly-textured cardstock only to find that the print shop doesn’t have enough of it to complete your order?
Different types of marketing materials look best on different types of paper stock. With in-house production printing, you’ll have the opportunity to select from a wider variety of paper stock.

Cut Back on Waste
How often do you have to throw away a bulk order of printed materials because there was a mistake? It’s estimated that 9 trillion pages of printed materials are wasted each year due to mistakes. If you switch to your own production printing, you can save up to 20% of your printed materials, which makes in-house printing a more environmentally-friendly option, not to mention less expensive!

Compliance with Regulations
If you work in a regulated industry, you may be breaking regulations when you outsource printing jobs. It’s impossible to tell who has seen sensitive documents, and many print shops use unsecure networks to send and receive files for print. With in-house printing, you know exactly who has access your documents, and you don’t have to worry about the middle man.

Need a job to go out the door at the last minute? What do you do if your print shop is closed?
With in-house production printing, this will never be an issue. Simply print off your materials yourself! No wait, no stress.

Did you know that you can create your own presets? Save complicated workflows as presets for different departments to use. The printing process will be simple for every team member who needs to print their routine materials!
