Top 5 Reasons Your Business Needs a Local Printing Partner

When you’re looking for a printer for your personal or business needs, you have a multitude of options. In fact, if you search Google for “printing company,” you’ll get over 12 million results – including local printing companies as well as national and regional printers. So, how do you choose a printing company you can trust to print your materials right – the first time?

Let’s look at 5 reasons you should partner with a local printing company:

1. Better Customer Service

Completing an online order form or talking about printing options over the phone can be confusing and frustrating. A local printer will take the time to explain your options and answer all your questions. They can offer custom solutions and give your project a professional touch.

A local printing company will invest time and money to build a relationship with their clients. They will become a trusted colleague who supports you, gets to know your business, and helps you reach your goals. They’ll help you create a product that makes an impact within your budget. They can also be a source of referral to help expand your network and grow your business. Because they are locally owned, they are motivated to provide you with quality service and products so they can continue to partner with you. At Impact Group Marketing, your success is our success!

2. Faster Turnaround Time

Thanks to a smaller customer base, you can expect a quicker turnaround time when you partner with a local printer. Large printing companies usually handle hundreds of orders every day. And if you use an online printer, you’ll also have to wait even longer for shipping. A local print company can set job priorities and work within the timeframe needed for your project. Their quick and reliable service is a valuable advantage. Our full-time production team at Impact Group Marketing will thoroughly review every printing job to ensure a quality product every time – on time!

3. Higher Quality and More Options

When you work with a national or regional company, you never know what you’ll get. Since most communication takes place indirectly through online forms, the materials you receive may not be what you ordered.

With local printers, you can see and feel samples of available options. Local printers work hard to compete with their nationwide companies, so you can usually count on them to do their job well. Best of all, you can talk with the printer in person and avoid any miscommunication.

Your local print company can provide high-quality options that will help your business be more successful. Whether it’s graphic design assistance, print on demand, or specific paper stock, a local printer can fill custom orders and accommodate your needs.

4. Easier and Better Communication

Your local printing company will help you choose the right materials, product size, margins, and image resolution. If you have any questions or need to make any last-minute changes, you’re just a phone call away from the people working on your project! You won’t get that kind of advice and service with an online printing company. At Impact Group Marketing, we love helping you bring your vision to life!

5. No Shipping Fees

Why pay for shipping when you can drop off and pick up your order? Partnering with a local printing company saves you expensive shipping fees. Many companies, including Impact Group Marketing, can even deliver locally when needed. Pick-up and delivery options help local printers stand out from their online competition – and save you money in the process. Knowing your order will be finished and available on time also helps relieve the stress involved when a project has a deadline. There’s no need to worry about shipping delays!

Bottom Line

When your business’s image and reputation are at stake, it makes sense to partner with a local printing company that also has its image and reputation on the line. National printing companies can’t compete with the value local printing companies provide – like high-quality work, quick turnaround times, and good old-fashioned personal contact. You can rely on Impact Group Marketing for all of these things and more.
