Cynthia Duff Blog, Tips

Are you planning a special event that requires flyers? Are you’re having a ceremony that requires pamphlets with a list of names?

You can order a print job for: brochures, flyers, letterheads, pamphlets, and more. Different print jobs are helpful for different events or businesses.

But what if you’ve never ordered a print job before? You’ve come to the right place!

Here’s how to go about ordering your first print job.

1. Do You Know What You Want in Your Print Job?

Before looking for a printing company, know what you want!

Flesh out the details of your printing job by asking yourself a few questions:

  • How many prints do you want?
  • Is your print job occasional or a one-time deal?
  • What type of prints are your looking for? Ex. Brochures, Newsletters, Business Cards, or Envelopes

These simple questions will save you time and energy in the long run. They also give you a better picture of the end product.

2. Verify Your Content

Once you’ve sent your content off for printing, it can’t be reversed. Avoid any delays or mistakes by verifying your content.

Some example questions you may ask yourself are:

  • Do I have the right address, time, place, or phone number?
  • Have I misspelled anyone’s name?
  • Are there any typos?

These simple editing tips are lifesavers!

3. Choose the Right Company

Research companies in your local area that offer printing services. Check out their websites to see the products and services they offer.

If you’re looking to print off business cards, ask about package deals. Could you save more money by buying a bundle versus individual prints?

Know where you’re going. Research what they offer! It’ll save you time, and ensure there are no unexpected surprises.

4. Send It Off

After reviewing your work and fleshing out the details, you are ready to send off your work.

Remember to send off your print job in advance so you’re not pushed for time if you need prints for an event. This also leaves room to fix any errors, if they arise.
