Top 8 Reasons to Hire a Local Printers VS a Chain

You might be surprised to learn the benefits of hiring a local printer versus a chain store.

1.  Price

Unlike with many big box retailers and their local independent counterparts, as far as print and design jobs go, hiring a local firm is likely much less expensive than hiring a big firm.  Corporate shops are often set up for small jobs, and indeed, can be cheaper if you’re only looking to make a couple copies or print 1 sign. Local firms become ideal for saving money when you start printing large jobs for a business, a meeting, an event, etc.

2.  Relationships

At a corporate shop, you’re likely to deal with a new employee every time you visit. At local printers, employees have been around a while, allowing you to form business relationships, not only with the designer and printer, but with support staff like accounting personnel.  The staff, in turn, will be more likely to work with you to make you happy, lest they have to deal with an unhappy customer the next time you order.

3.  Flexibility

Flexibility in papers, coatings, inks, and products is only part of the reason. A local shop that values your business is more likely to put in the overtime to get your work done on time.

4.  Local

Keeping your business local means more tax dollars for your city and helps to maintain a vibrant business community. A local firm mean you also save money on delivery costs and can reach out to friends and colleagues in the business community to inquire about the quality of the firm. Local businesses have more at stake when you hire them, since their smaller customer list means each customer means a lot.

5.  Customer Service

Local firms have superior customer service and will often bend over backwards to meet your needs (provided they are reasonable, of course). You’ll get to know your customer service representative and they’ll get to know you, ensuring the best possible service and product.

6.  Expertise

Large corporate stores often hire young people without much work experience in order to pay them minimum wage. Local firms pay their employees more and their employees tend to stay put longer. Additionally, small firms rely upon their limited staff to have a vast knowledge of their products and services, meaning you have an expert working on your project rather than someone with only  a basic knowledge.

7.  Options and Innovation

Local firms often have more options and are more likely to innovate for your orders. Things like die-cutting and specialty papers can be ordered without extra hassle.  There are no bureaucratic impediments to innovation, and cutting edge software and equipment are more prevalent.

8.  Community

Tying it all together, working with a local print firm helps to create a community that benefits everyone involved.

Marketing Tips For The Holidays

It always seems like the holidays sneak up on us faster and faster each year. They also seem to bring the best out of people — everyone is filled with cheer, gratitude, and compassion. That being said, the holidays are a perfect time to connect with family, friends, customers, and future prospects. For this reason, your company should have a killer marketing campaign, since people base their buying decisions on their emotions. Marketers can leverage these feelings to engage with their customers on an emotional level and build trust and credibility. The holidays are always a popular time to market, so it’s important to put some thought into your campaign. As you must know, there is a lot of spending during the holidays, which means you want to get your customers to spend their money with your company, and not your competitors.

Check out these four marketing tips to use during the holidays:

with content from and

Social Media Marketing

According to The Pew Research Center, more than ¾ of adults ages 18 to 49 use social media. This is an outstanding number of people with purchasing power. Why wouldn’t you want to use social media to market during the holidays? It is so important to take advantage of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other channels your prospective clients are on. Using social media is the perfect way to engage during the holidays, especially when you can interact and track if this is successful for your company.

Tug at Their Heartstrings

This might seem like a no-brainer, but the most memorable and successful marketing campaigns rely on “tugging on your customer’s heartstrings”. It’s all about making the customer feel something, or having a lasting impression on them. A lot of the time, if you see an emotional ad, video, blog, or story, you are more inclined share it with others because you believe it will impact them like it impacted you. This is just another benefit to “tugging on your customer’s heartstrings” because they are likely to share with their friends, family, and co-workers, which could potentially be your new clients. This also shows that your company is kind-hearted, generous, and everything else positive a customer wants during the holidays.


Consistency is always important when marketing, but during the holidays, consistency across all channels is crucial. You want to create a consistent experience for your customers, no matter how you’re reaching them. During the holidays, people are filled with positivity and gratitude, and they will be expecting that from your company as well.


Storytelling still works, especially during the holidays. Storytelling sometimes is the best way for your customers to really connect with your company on a more personal level. Consumers are more likely to spend money with your company rather than your competitors when they feel they are a part of what your company is doing. This is also a way for your customers to get a firsthand account of what your company does for your employees during the holidays and prospective customers. For example, highlight a story when your company went above and beyond for a customer, just because.
