Are you considering catalogue printing for your company or organization? If so, this article can help you maximize your time as well as save money.
Anyone who has ever been tasked with creating and completing a catalogue printing job can attest to how challenging this type of project can be. Even a small publication can be daunting when you consider the amount of data and information that must be inputted into the project. In addition to the data, there is also the issue of formatting the publication so that it reads smoothly and cleanly. All in all, catalogue printing jobs can be a challenge.
So, how does one reduce the amount of time it takes to put one of these projects together? A simple answer to that is by using an online document editor.
It should be noted right here that not all online printing companies offer (or even have) an online document editor that their customers can use. A quick online search will reveal those that do. Of those that do, try to work with a printing vendor who also uses high-end presses, Kodak NexPress system for example, and who can offer you a variety of shipping options, either back to you or perhaps to your end user, thus saving you the work of mailing out the publications yourself.
The beauty of using an online document editor for catalogue printing purposes becomes apparent once you sign into the editor and begin working. These online printing tools allow you to upload your images and photos into logical files where you can then size and place them where you want them on each individual page. Document editors can also be used to input the text of each item, along with any other pertinent information or data you need to add.
In terms of catalogue printing, a good online document editor will also allow you to format each page as you go along, showing you on your computer screen exactly what the page will look like when printed. You can save files, go back and edit, and you can do all of this right from your own desk. Once you have your publication set, you can send it electronically over to the catalogue printing section and have it produced. All with just a few clicks of the mouse.
You can also save money on your catalogue printing if you work with an online printing company that offers print-on-demand services. This allows you to order just the number of copies that you need at any one time. In other words, you do not have to meet any minimum order requirements. You can keep your work files on the printer’s server and order up more whenever you need them.
