Is In-House Production Printing Right For You?

July 25, 2017 | Advanced Office

Does your organization rely on expensive outsourcing for your printed materials? You don't need to; in-house production printing delivers results every bit as professional as outsourcing, and the benefits can be substantial.

Outsourced or In-House?

Unless your organization regularly requires large print runs of specialized, high-quality materials, in-house production printing can replace outsourcing in almost every situation. Here's a rundown of the major differences:

  1. Scheduling — Waiting for third-party print shops is inconvenient, and you may miss opportunities to respond to unexpected events and marketing trends. With in-house production printing, you call the shots when it comes to scheduling, and your team can even print after hours to meet urgent deadlines.

  2. Investment — Who is more invested in the outcome of your materials—you or a busy and detached third party printing vendor? In-house production printing allows your marketing team to maintain control of your brand and your designs. Last-minute changes and corrections are easy to make on the fly.

  3. Small print runs — Third-party vendors may charge per piece for small print runs. An in-house production printer eliminates those charges and makes small, last-minute print runs affordable and well worth your time.

  4. Mailing — Stop missing opportunities because of long wait times. With in-house production printing capabilities, your team can print and mail materials all on the same business day.

  5. Security — There's no way to control what happens to your data in an outsourced printing environment, and privacy laws put strict requirements on organizations that print confidential information. In-house production printing eliminates these serious security concerns.
