When you have a small business, sometimes is seems quicker and easier to do as much as possible online, but that may not always be true. Often, using an online printing service robs you of important personal interaction and a true representation of the final product. At Xpress Graphics, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of personal customer service. Here, five reasons to use a local printer instead of online printing.
1. Personalized service – you just can’t beat working with someone face to face. At Xpress Graphics, we take the time to understand your project and goals. We get to know our clients and you can always speak with the same person overseeing your entire project, instead of an 800 number where you are on hold for an extended time and then someone has to look up your order to know who you are.
2. Design Services – our in house graphic designers are here to personally help you. Often, big online printing companies offer only generic templates. Our skilled staff will custom design to your needs and branding.
3. Understands local market – we are your neighbors and do business here too. We are familiar with the local demographic and what works in our area. We know approximate numbers for local events and can often help advise on appropriate designs, sizes and quantities.
4. Avoid Costly Errors – when you work directly with Xpress Graphics, we can give you personal advice on printing options, paper choices (did you realize that it’s hard to write on glossy paper?), you can feel the paper, see the true colors, etc. This can reduce frustrating errors that may come from not understanding the printing lingo online or not seeing a true representation before printing.
5. Quick turnaround (and no shipping fees!) – If you need something printed for the same day, that is just impossible with online printers. And, if you have developed a relationship with a local printer, you probably have a better chance of getting special service when needed. We offer quick turnaround on all of our jobs, and can often accommodate rush orders when necessary. We love when we can be a hero to our clients.
As a local printer, we pride ourselves on creating ongoing business relationships. At Xpress Graphics, we strive to know our clients and their printing needs to always deliver a personal and extraordinary experience. We offer a full range of printing services including large format, signs and posters, business cards, brochures, menus and so much more. Give us a call at 760-345-2741 and you’ll see that using a local printer can be a great advantage for your small business.
