When you don’t print an order at your own location, am I paying more by having you act as a “middle-man”?
Hardly. When you buy a house, you don’t pay a realtor extra to find the perfect home while making sure the entire transaction goes smoothly. Instead, they take their commission from the seller’s cut. Our trade partners work on the same principle. Printers like us LOVE working with other printers and usually offer wholesale pricing to them that is not otherwise available to the public. Our clients should never pay more than the retail price you’d pay if you tried to purchase it yourself. What you gain is having a friendly print expert who will handle your order for you, check the proofs, and follow up with the printer to make sure it’s done quickly and correctly.
