3 Questions To Ask Your Print Partner About Training Collateral

Share this article:

When it comes to training, there’s a lot of things that you’ll need in your arsenal to be successful: a solid training program, great trainers to keep your team informed and engaged and training collateral to support your team as they go through the trainings.

Just like any other collateral in your business, you’re going to want to work with a trusted print partner who can bring your training vision to life.

Here are 3 questions to ask your print partner about training collateral that will ensure that you get the collateral – and vendor experience – that you’re looking for:

Questions to ask printer about training collateral for your training businessQuestion 1: What’s The Best Format For My Training Materials?

One of the main reasons that you’re going to your print partner to print your training materials is because you consider them an expert.

So asking for their expertise not only on the printing process, but on what format would be best for each of your training materials, can give you valuable insight and make your training materials more effective.

For example, your print partner can tell you whether or not your training manual would be better traditionally bound or turned into a cross stitch booklet depending on the size and number of pages.

They can also offer guidance on things like what size marketing cards would be the best fit for your corporate contact cards and what size and format brochure would be best for your training packets.

Before you decide on what format you want to print your training materials, ask your print partner for their input.

Question 2: What’s Your Policy On Edits?

Here’s the thing about training materials: as your business changes, your training materials will likely change as well.

While there are certain pieces of collateral that will stay the same, the vast majority of your training materials will change as your business grows and evolves.

And before you enter into a print relationship with a vendor, you need to know their policy on edits.

Will you have to pay to have your training materials completely redesigned each time you make a change, or do they have templates where you can easily change minor information and order a reprint?

Do they offer deals on print runs if you edit and reprint your training materials each year?

Knowing what to expect from your print partner as your training materials inevitably change will save you money and frustration down the road.

Question 3: Do You Have An Online Ordering Portal?

The last question you’ll want to ask your print partner is if they have an online ordering portal.

An online ordering portal will make it a breeze when you need to order materials before your sales meeting or when you make a new hire.

It’s also an great way to keep track of any requested changes and to easily view and adjust your training templates as needed.
