Print buying and production

Saving you time and money in print buying
(This early-American printer, shown here in my favorite portrait of him, knew the value of time and money)

Effective print production or buying requires knowledge of the printing processes and experience in dealing with printers.

There are many elements to a print job that the printer has to know before they can price it accurately and provide a turnaround time.
To get a price/turnaround estimate, we must give the printer specific parameters for a job. 

There are a lot of tactics that I've learned, and they can save you time and money.

That means that I have been involved, usually in a supervisory mode, in every kind of design and print production. These have included, but are not limited to:
• Newspapers

• Books of all kinds (hard-bound, paperbound, and more)
• Comic books
• Brochures
• Flyers
• One-page handouts
• Specialty non-paper items
• Posters
• Signage and fabrication,
• Selfie signs
• Exhibits
• Calligraphy and unusual award materials
• Out-of-home (billboards, bus signage, convention wall signage)
• Direct-mail material of all kinds
• Stationery, business cards, and Post-its

Print runs have varied from one copy (illuminated calligraphy scroll for a Nasdaq board member, for example), to over 15 million (custom multi-element direct-mail package to all U.S. high-school seniors for the Army National Guard).
