It is easy to have your printing jobs done at home in your reliable laser ink jet printer. However, some people take the time to go out and have their printing jobs done by a commercial printer?
What is the difference with simple printing and commercial printing? Simple printing may include the use of an ordinary printer while commercial printing may involve a large amount of reproduction of whatever form of art or text document. Any professional or trained personnel often do this.
If you ask me, if a certain printing job is very important for me and I want spotless presentation, I would seek the service of a commercial printer. There are several advantages that one may enjoy when having your printing needs done by a professional.
• First reason is that, if my editing or layout design does not look good, I can have a professional or skilled technician do their magic on my work. Like for instance, with regards to the size of the design versus printing media. This often happens to me. I may have perfected the design and layout but when I have it printed, the computer would always tell me that my artwork is beyond the printable area. When that happens, you can usually drive yourself to the nearest printing shop. No matter how your work is edited, solving this problem cannot be done. Moreover, I do not have the equipment to the job at home.
• Commercial printing companies may also offer you choices. What I mean when I say choices is that if you intend to have your company’s logo on a plastic cup, printing companies will offer you options and can even coordinate with a supplier and give you competitive rates and charges. Some printing shops may display their finished product in different forms and color so you can just choose from them. Some companies may even offer personalized designs for their customers.
• One final advantage of a commercial printer is that their machines are flexible and durable. These machines are built to print in large quantities. They were built so you can achieve your desired result. Results that your ever-reliable laser ink jet printer may not be able to do. If they do not have the machines to do the job for you, they may offer you other companies that may be able to help you. Most importantly, these printers can have the job done faster than when you do it on your own. In addition, the fact that they never run out of ink.
Some commercial printer may not offer certain editing services or lay out designs for you but they sure are the authority in your printing needs. Commercial printing may not be as beneficial as it is to some people. Some may argue that it might actually make you spend more than you ought to have. You can just leave them the original copy. Have them reproduced to your desired amount of copies in whatever form or design you may intend to have, colored or not, embossed or not in as little time as possible should be more than enough for you to consider them when there is a need to.
