As a print buyer, you are acutely aware that the print buying business is upside down right now – pricing from the printers is all over the place, small and midsized printers are being acquired by the larger printers, and even paper prices are very volatile at a time when there is less capacity at the mills and less demand for paper. You are being deluged with calls and information from more and more printers. Today, more options are available for the publication publisher than at any time in the past ten years. It is a confusing and somewhat intimidating time in the print/print media business. But, one full of opportunities!
Do you know where your publication should be printed? Should it be sheet fed, web or digital press? Should you print locally or would you save money by printing out of state? How do you know you are getting a fair price for your product? Could you save money by changing your trim size? Could you save money by printing more pages? Are you getting the best postal rates? Have you visited your printer and are you familiar with their equipment? When was the last time you sent your publication out for bid? Do you know how to do accurate side by side print bid comparisons? Do you know what you are paying for paper?
If you know the answers to these questions, then you are most likely a good print buyer. If not, then the services of CMYK Print Solutions might be right for you. I, Julia Hall, President of CMYK Print Solutions , will gather all the appropriate information and specifications about your project, choose at least 3 printers that would be appropriate for your project printing, send out a formal bid, compile the results, and present a report to you on those findings, and compare them to the current price you are paying. CMYK Print Solutions has the years of experience in the industry to be able to provide you a comprehensive report with recommendations for your publication. There is no charge to you for this service. If you decided to change printers to one of the ones presented in the report, the printer would pay CMYK Print Solutions for the service provided.
