Have an event coming up that you need to promote? There’s a lot that goes into planning, including what you have printed – whether it’s invitations, programs, menus, signage, or anything else that would turn a small function into a big event.
First, you need to make sure what you’re planning to print fits within your budget. So, you shoot an email to your friendly neighborhood printer person saying something like, “We have our Best Mustache of the Year event coming up and need programs made – how much?” But instead of getting the information you need, you get crickets. Or my personal favorite, you get a long email with a list of bullet-point questions. What gives? You need pricing – not the print-centric version of The Inquisition.
Here’s what’s up: Printing is incredibly detail-oriented. Every single thing Wythken Printing makes is different from what came before, and what will come after. And to get the pricing right, we need to know some details. But fear not! Below are the few particulars we need so we can give you an accurate quote.
That’s it! You are on your way to being a savvy print buyer! In fact, you’re already my favorite client for taking the time to read this. Let’s look at that previous program request again. “We have our Best Mustache of the Year event coming up and need programs made. We’ll need 250, but also give me pricing for 300. They’ll be printed at 8×10, but then folded to 4×10, and printed in color on both sides. And I’d love for them to be on a really thick, glossy paper. How much?”
There’s nothing to it. This whole printing thing is easy – and even easier when you work with our printing pros at Wythken Printing. Call the shop today at (804) 353-8282 or reach out for a custom quote to get started on your next project!
