This week I’d like to look at a specific printing service that I recommend a lot, and take a little look at what they do. The company website can be found at www.auraprint.co.uk – take a look at this great e-commerce site! It’s easy to get prices and buy online, and they’ve really made a great effort to create a site that is informative, useful and easy to use. It was produced by web design huddersfield.
Aura have dedicated premises and several production staff, along with a great customer service department that is always on the end of the phone to help with any queries or problems that you may have. They talk in a no-nonsense or jargon language and are great at sorting any problems quickly, and trying to avoid them in the first place. They have an in house design team as well, so can do design work from scratch or help you to amend any artwork that you may want to use, along with sorting all the technical aspects of the artwork by making sure that it is print ready before the job is passed onto the production team. Aura have two digital print machines and two wide format printers, along with the full range of guillotine, booklet makers, laminators (digital and wide format) creaser, folder and the equipment needed to make desk and NCR (no carbon required) pads. They can also do stickers, and get involved in roll up banner production too.
In fact, the only jobs that are outsourced are large litho runs and the occasional banner that is too large for the in-house machines. Printers that can cover this range of work are rare, and Aura are quite unique in the range of products and services that they can cover without needing any help from outside companies or contractors. It’s normal however to outsource large litho runs – litho printers are very expensive and require a lot of space so it’s fair to assume that only a few litho companies can do all of the litho work that exists on the country at any one time – if everyone had a litho machine there just wouldn’t be enough work to go around! With cheap banners you can be limited to the size that you can produce by the machines that you have, In this case, around 1% of banners are outsourced, so it really is very rare. If you need a really indepth design agencies west yorkshire service though, maybe clicking the link will help! Door to door delivery is one way to get your flyers around, but you’ll have to be fit! Perhaps online fitness instructor courses might be of some use? Hahahaha!
When choosing printing services, don’t let a little outsourcing put you off. The best companies will still guarantee quality so that your mind can be at rest!
