How to Speed Up Your Next Printing Project
Planning ahead is the best way to ensure that your next project runs smoothly. Follow these tips for a fast and stress-free experience on your next project!
1) Start Early
Don’t wait until the last minute to start thinking about printing. Research the best printers in your area and find the best one for you. Then let them know that you’re going to have a project coming up soon, so they can anticipate it.
2) Be Specific
Clear communication is the key to success, so make sure that you’re very specific and clear about what you want and need. Don’t be afraid to overcommunicate either; it’s better to be more specific than vague and to have more information to draw from.
3) Ask Questions Right Away
Clear communication includes letting the print shop know everything about your project and asking them questions. Do they have any recommendations or input about your project that will help make printing easier? Can you schedule check-ins to make sure that everything is still running smoothly?
4) Send Print Ready Documents
One of the main reasons a print project gets delayed is because clients aren’t sending print ready documents. Your document should be in PDF format that has accurate trim and bleed areas. It should also include only high-quality images and outlined font.
5) Keep it Simple
Another general rule of printing – and life – is to just keep it simple. It can be tempting to go overboard with fun and creative design concepts, however, the more complex your project, the longer it will take to print.
