Small Business Printing
This page is NOT about your website. You and your company are part of The Clever Robot family and membership has its privileges. I am going to share with you a way to save a lot of money on one of the biggest expenses in your marketing budget no matter how small or large your organization.
Every company or organization has a ton of stuff to print: business cards, envelopes, letterhead, banners, flyers, brochures, sales sheets, postcards, direct mailers, posters, etc. Deciding what to print is just the first part of completing any successful print job. There are several steps involved in the creation of professionally printed media.

Brochure Design & Printing
We can help you design and print professional brochures on a variety of stocks and finishes. Whether you need simple, glossy tri-folds, or custom die cut brochures with spot uv coating – we can help!
After choosing what to print on, you can begin to explore ideas and concepts for what will actually be printed: the design process. Professional artwork will need to be created. You might already have an internal marketing team with in-house designers or maybe a regular contractor you can work with. If not then you will need to outsource your design work – and vetting designers can be an all consuming time sink in itself!
Once a designer is chosen and concepts understood the real work begins: mock ups are created, revisions are made and you finally have your artwork ready to print.
Now you begin obtaining quotes from different printers. Unfortunately these days, quality can suffer in favor of a cheaper price so you may need to allow for more time to receive paper samples. Quote themselves can take time as each printer has different ways of simply getting a price. Be sure to look for complete quotes – quotes that include everything to get the printed pieces to your door. This includes set up and pre press fees, special options like coatings, folding and bundling, and of course, shipping. These are sometimes hidden or “baked into” final invoices and can be a show stopper.
Finally you have to download templates, prepare art files for pre-press and send to printer for approval. If the job is approved, the print run is scheduled, the job is run, trimmed, packed, and shipped. Overall these steps can eat up a lot of your resources and time and even result in lost money, added stress and mediocre results.
