Looking around the internet you can find many reasons people are posting about the benefits of local printing rather than using online printing services. A lot of these are important benefits if you want to really get the best service that you can. Here are a few reasons to think about when looking to use a printing service.
Turnaround time. Less shipping equals faster receipt. This may be important to certain people depending on time constraints. Some people just hate waiting and require their printed goods fast and being close helps with that. Most local printing companies do not charge for delivery versus many online printers do charge shipping. You can also just go into the store and pickup your order personally then you wouldn’t have to wait and no shipping fees.
Supporting other local businesses. It is talked about a lot and helping your community grow with you is always good news. You could even form a friendly relationship with the owner or the workers there which could lead to benefits like lower prices, extra care or just a better business experience.
Extra care and better quality can result when working locally. Chances are that the company you asked to print your order doesn’t have hundreds of others to work on. Less orders means they won’t be rushing to finish your order because they have others to get to. They have the time to take care and make sure its the best it can be. Also adding to the point before the turnaround time is probably a lot shorter than that of a national printing company.
