3 Early Red Flags from Printing Companies


3 Early Red Flags from Printing Companies

It’s easy to get lost in all of the printing companies from which to choose. Oftentimes, the phrase, “addition by subtraction” applies. You can find your preferred printer by eliminating those that show any of these red flags early on:

  1. The “Don’t Worry, We’ll Take Care of It” Printing Company

Experience can’t be faked. When you’re discussing your project with a potential print vendor, they should be explaining the entire process to you, from start to finish—especially if your project requires a unique style, cut or feature. You will want to listen for responses that show the printer knows exactly what they plan to do in order to get the project done in a timely and cost-effective manner.

  1. The “We Can Talk Pricing Later” Printing Company

You should expect your printer to be able to give a reasonable quote based on the information you provide them. The intake phase can feel tiring, at times, but know that it’s a good thing when a printer is being detailed with their questions and note-taking. If the vendor is trying to avert questions or comes across as vague during the pricing discussion, it’s usually not a great sign. A printer should always be transparent and upfront with their pricing. 

  1. The “Artistic Difference” Printing Company

Your printer should help fulfill your creative vision, not challenge it. It’s not our place to tell you what your project is, how it needs to look, or what it needs to accomplish. If a vendor is trying to steer you in a direction that is away from your original intent, consider looking elsewhere. Don’t allow a printer to come in and take away your vision. They should simply be advising you on the best solutions.
