Bulk printing services are designed to meet the needs of companies or organizations requiring consistent large batches with the same designs. Common uses are for large, routine prints where changes rarely occur such as labels. This is not an ideal choice for small counts where the design changes frequently.
Bulk printing services are cost-effective and offer a faster turnaround time than alternative options. Additionally, they deliver easy application whether using inkjet, laser, or another method. This option is often used for the following:
These services are frequently used for marketing materials and communication purposes for large companies; however, they are highly beneficial in other scenarios as well.
When is Bulk Printing an Option?
Bulk printing services offer additional convenience in instances where design changes rarely occur, and needs remain consistent. The choice lowers print expenses and reduces shipping costs for any business. Buying in bulk also decreases the amount of generated waste, which is great for the environment! It is not the best choices in the following scenarios:
- Short Print Runs
- Limited Edition Prints
- Frequent Design Changes
- Changing Count Needs
- Limited Storage Space Available
Buying in bulk means that you will need to be able to store the prints in a location where they will not be damaged until use. Additionally, it limits marketing or design changes. The current print will need to be used or discarded to initiate these types of changes. Finally, it is not cost effective unless a large quantity is needed.
When considering bulk printing services, it is best to first evaluate your specific needs. If the count is small or your marketing campaign changes often, then this is not the best option. However, if you have a storage location and the item will not go bad, then bulk printing services are more viable.
