April 26, 2012 by  Filed under: Marketing 

Most businesses will know how difficult it is to try to market yourself on a limited budget and how important it is to try to be creative with the budget you have at your disposal. Printing flyers is a great way to increase local public awareness of your goods and services but before you consider exploring this avenue it is good to know what questions you can ask that might help you to save some money. Asking the right questions will also make sure that you get the right printer firm and that you end up with a quality product..

Ask about what discounts you might be entitled to

Firstly, it is good to ask if you can save money by buying your flyers in bulk. Most printers will offer you a discount with the quantity of the order and that discount should increase as your order increases too. It is best to find out the nature of the discount at the outset because you could save money now by preventing needless orders further down the line at full cost..

Ask about the extent to which you can customize your flyer

Ask what materials the printer company uses in the production of their flyers. It might be possible to customize these materials so that you can choose what paper and what font you include in your finished product.
It is good to find out how much control you have over the design of the flyer because you are paying for this service and will want to make sure everything goes to plan.

It s worthwhile asking if you can have a say in the design and layout as well as the kind of ink that is used in the production process. A printer company that is happy to take on board your ideas and work alongside you will probably work well for you and provide you with a good service..

Ask for sample of their work so you can check on quality

Request samples from any printing firm you approach because this will give you the clearest indication of their credentials and the quality of their work. This will help you decide which firms will give you the best end result and if they are worth your money. You will be able to see the sample for yourself and decide if the quality of the paper is good enough and if you are happy to proceed with your order..

Find out how long it takes to deliver your flyers

If you are happy with the amount of control you have in the design process and you are happy with the quality of the samples and you are still interested then ask about their delivery timescales. You might want to order a large quantity for an upcoming event or you might just need to know how quickly you need to get your order in before you run out, so it is worth knowing how efficient the printer can be..

Find out what guarantees the printing firm can give you

Ask what guarantees the printer can offer, you if any, because this will give you the added assurance you need that f anything goes wrong they will be held accountable and will correct any errors. This will also give you the peace of mind of knowing you won’t have to pay for their mistakes.
