Helpful things to keep in mind when choosing a printer.

1. Find a printer who is happy to go the extra mile for you.
Whether it be explaining the lingo or giving advice on what would best suit your needs. A good printer will be really easy to work with and ensure that your finished job is the best it can possibly be.

They'll also speak to you in a language you can understand, rather than trying to impress (confuse) you with crazy, technical lingo.

2. Don't make your decision on price alone.
Print quality, customer service and turnaround times vary greatly from printer to printer. Generally speaking, you get what you pay for. If saving $50 means your printing will take 2 weeks longer and be printed on a 20 year old press, you're probably better off spending a little more.

3. Don't buy more than you can use.
It may sound silly to only get 500 business cards, when it's only another $10 more for 1000, but many well-meaning people fall into this trap.

Eg. You need 500 matt business cards, but you get 1000 because it's only $10 more. 3 years later you relocate your business, but still have 800 cards left with the wrong address on them. You've actually wasted money and a stack of paper which cannot be recycled because of the matt laminate.

(This is not the printer trying to rip you off. Prices are structured like this because there is usually about the same amount of labour involved regardless of the quantity of items ordered. The only difference between 500 and 1000 business cards is about 12 sheets of paper.)

4. Make sure your printer uses modern equipment.
While the basics of offset printing haven't really changed since the printing press was invented in the 1400's, the technology has improved a little - Ok, a whole lot.

If your printer has the latest equipment and uses it correctly, your printed goods will be of exceptional quality and consistency. It will also allow them to print faster and more economically.
