International companies save on transportation costs
Many companies visit the UK during the year to attend conferences and exhibitions. The cost of carriage on boxes of literature can mount up, and this is where using SR Print Management can save international clients time and money.
SR Print Management has printed property flyers for a Spanish property company which were then distributed around the UK. We print work for clients in South Africa and the USA who were attending exhibitions in England, we have printed Report and Accounts for a Canadian/UK company for delivery to the Registrars in London, and more recently have provided print services for a German based designer with English clients. Print prices in the UK may not be the cheapest in Europe, but when the cost of transportation and the time factors are added to the equation, then a great deal can be saved. SR Print Management also makes the whole process hassle free.
How much is your time worth?
We know that our prices are competitive. We also know that if you search around long enough, you will find someone cheaper. Part of what we do, is search for the most cost effective way of producing our clients work. This is what we do day-in, day-out. This is part of our service that allows you not to have to spend time hunting down the right printer.
We recently produced the following jobs for one of our clients, and whilst not every job is like this, it highlights the time-saving element.
We produced Bill-board ads, Large format vinyl posters, window graphics, point of sale stands, brochures and flyers. This involved us using 6 suppliers. Obviously we made sure each item had competitive pricing from at least 3 suppliers (some more). One of our account managers brought the whole project together to make sure that the client got the best value for money. Probably more importantly, she made sure all the suppliers gave consistency of colour, delivered to the right place, on the right day, and that the client was kept informed throughout.
Only certain professions such as lawyers and accountants charge by the hour and have a view on what their time is worth. Many of us do not put a value on what each of our working hours is worth. If you stop to think about how much you could earn your company doing "what you do" rather than chasing around after printers, you will soon realise the added value of having a company like SR Print Management to provide this and remain competitive compared with using printers directly.
