What to look for in printing and binding services near me?

There are four key drivers to consider when looking for printing and binding services near you. First, determine which driver or drivers are important for this particular print job. Are you looking to get the cheapest possible price? Do you need convenience of a printer around the corner? Is quality the most important thing? Or do you need the job completed fast? These four factors; price, convenience, quality and speed will determine which printer and binder are right for you.

If your key driver is price – it doesn’t really matter the quality of the paper and the printing and binding just needs to be adequate and you have a week before the job is required…use an online print house where you upload the artwork and have no one-on-one interaction with the printer.

If, on the other hand you need the print and bind job this afternoon, you are going to have to go to the nearest instant printer in a retail high traffic area. The quality is likely to be OK, not many paper choices and it will need to be a standard size, but it is likely your only option…be ready to pay for that speed and convenience.

Another possibility is you have a more complex job or it needs to be of a higher quality… perhaps you need some artwork, design or layout assistance. Then you are best to use a full service printer and binder near you. This printer will provide you a one-on-one interaction with an experienced account manager, they can produce samples both digital and hard copy. You will typically get a much broader variety of higher quality papers; have the ability to use embellishments to create higher impact for the job.

No printer is perfect for every job; use the drivers of price, convenience, quality and speed to determine what printing and binding services near you make sense for the job.
