The cost and time that it takes to create a production print run can both be too high if your company doesn't have the right equipment. If you are still outsourcing your production printing, there are many reasons to stop outsourcing and start producing in-house.
Costs and Time
The cost of outsourcing a production print run is a cost that your company just doesn't need. It is a far better use of resources to simply purchase the printer needed and do the printing in-house. This means that you won't have ongoing printing costs, as your machine is already purchased. The cost of paper and ink is negligible next to the cost of frequently outsourcing this task to third parties. It also takes far less time to use an in-house production printer rather than getting proofs ready and taking them to printers before having to go back and pick up the finished items. In-house printing can be done in the same room you're in now.
The Right Colors
The colors that you use on your printed materials were no doubt chosen with care. However, taking them to a print shop can often mean that the colors won't come out the way you chose them. They may even be inconsistent from one batch to the next or even one page to the next. To stay in control of just how your colors look, you can use your own printer. This allows for consistency in printing, and you can check the color as often as you like to ensure that it's correct.
Better Customer Service
With all the time that was spent on outsourcing a production print run, that was time that wasn't spent with customers. When you save time on printing, employees can spend more of their time talking to customers and finding out what they're looking for from your business. You will also have any printed materials in their hands sooner. This always projects a more professional image.
