What To Do If You Need A Print Job…. QUICKLY

Share this article:

In a perfect world, you know far in advance when you need your marketing brochures, flyers or business cards for your team printed. You have plenty of time to design, edit and push the project through to printing.

But let’s be honest: we don’t live in a perfect world.

And there will definitely be a time in your business where you need a project printed IMMEDIATELY.

So what do you do if you need a print job… quickly?

1. Have A Print Partner In Your Pocket

Now, this is one that you’ll need to cover BEFORE you need a rush print job, but if you print on regularly, you should find a print partner that you can work with on an ongoing basis. Sourcing a print partner takes time, and when you find yourself in a situation where you need a print job completed quickly, you don’t want to waste days or weeks interviewing and finding the right person for the job.

When you’re interviewing print partners, make sure that you ask them about how they handle rush jobs. Are there any additional fees if you need your print project completed in 24 hours? What happens if you need a print project on off hours or on the weekend? What systems and processes do they have in place to make sure that you get your print projects on time, every time?

Taking the time to find the right print partner BEFORE you need a print job in a hurry will save you major headaches when that time inevitably comes.

2. Use Print Templates

For most print jobs, there’s no need to reinvent the wheel. And the general layout of things like marketing cards, direct mailers and business cards won’t change much from project to project. And just like your graphic design partner, your print partner should have a variety of templates of standard jobs that you can easily customize when you’re pressed for time.

Using templates significantly speeds up the printing process. Rather than developing your print layout from scratch, you can simply insert the text and image that you need and get your project from conception to print quickly and easily.

3. Use Your Online Ordering Portal

One of the biggest time savers when you need a print job done quickly is an online ordering portal. Online ordering portals should be a non-negotiable with your print partner; they make the process quicker, easier and more convenient.

Ordering through an online portal speeds up the process in a number of ways. First of all, it eliminates the need for unnecessary emails; the portal organizes all of the communication and edits for your print project and makes it readily accessible (and in one place) for you and your printer.

It also ensures that your rush print job doesn’t fall through the cracks. For example, if you have a last minute print job on a Friday night, your printer isn’t likely expecting to hear from you. An email might get lost in the shuffle. But if you order through the online ordering portal, the ball will automatically start rolling and your print partner will be notified that you have a project that you need done STAT.

With the right print partner in place, getting your rush print job finished quickly should be an easy and pain free process.
