It's time to get serious about Outsourcing

If you run a print shop or copy center, you know how challenging it has been in recent years. Even though the paper shortage has finally resolved itself, rising material costs and low workforce participation continue to plaque the industry.

In the midst of these woes, consumers continue to seek cheaper prices and quicker turnaround times for their print projects. So it is quite a stressful time, especially when the goal is to boost sales and increase revenue.

Outsourcing Print Services makes sense

With all of the uncertainty associated with our current economic climate, now is the perfect time to look into Print Outsourcing. It can be a real game changer for independent printers and copy shops struggling with rising costs and labor concerns.

Outsourcing involves partnering with a commercial printing company that produces projects on your behalf. For example, if your shop is exclusively digital, partnering with a printing company that has offset presses will provide better pricing for your customers on larger orders. Likewise, if your shop has limited finishing and bindery capabilities, partnering with a full-service print facility will provide additional options for your customers.

Also, because you'll pay wholesale pricing, and incur no costs associated with in-house production, you can pass these savings along to your customers. It truly is a win-win scenario. In addition, you have the choice of having orders shipped to your place of business or blind shipped directly to your customer.

By leveraging the resources of a trusted outsource partner, you will be able to boost your printing sales without having to invest in expensive equipment, additional employees, or floor space. It's an easy way to increase revenue while eliminating a lot of the hassles that come with producing every project in-house.

Print Outsourcing really is the Perfect Solution…

It instantly Expands the scope and scale of your Product Offerings

Outsourcing allows you to increase the range of products you can offer. Once you establish a relationship with an external source, you no longer have to turn down projects that don't match your in-house capabilities. You simply outsource them. Also, if your production equipment or floor space limits your ability to produce higher volume projects, outsourcing solves that dilemma too. The key takeaway is that Outsourcing removes just about any limitation and allows you to accept more projects from customers.

It provides you with more Finishing and Bindery options

In addition to being able to offer more types of products, Outsourcing also provides the opportunity to offer your customers more product enhancements and specialized finishing operations. Also, if your bookbinding capabilities are currently limited, Outsourcing will enable you to accept all types of book projects. As you know, the profits on books can really add up fast because each contains a multitude of printed pages.

It reduces Staffing Issues and Labor Costs

Many businesses are having trouble finding workers and the print industry is no exception. By Outsourcing print projects, you won't need to hire and train as many workers because you are leveraging the expertise and workforce of your outsource provider. In addition to lowering your direct labor costs, indirect labor costs are also reduced, such as those associated with maintaining production equipment or performing administrative tasks like ordering the materials needed for the project. A reduction in labor costs is particularly meaningful to smaller businesses that may have limited resources.

It Conserves Space

The machinery and equipment used for printing can take up a lot of space. Outsourcing allows you to utilize your partner's printing equipment and floor space without going to the expense and hassle of having to physically expand your own operation. Also, your Outsource partner can drop ship orders directly to your customer's location using your name as the shipper. This will eliminate the space needed to unload and store the shipments at your facility.

It allows you to know your Costs Upfront

After you submit the specifications of your customer's print project to your Outsource partner, you will receive a written quote. This allows you to know your cost for the project upfront. Once you add your markup to determine your sell price, you will immediately know what your total profit will be for the job. Since you aren't producing the project in-house, you don't have to worry about your profits being eroded by excessive paper waste, production errors, or any other unforeseen mishaps.
