Print4biz is an alliance of printers, all successful stand-alone businesses with their own price structures and clientele, who offer their off-peak production time at knock-down prices over the internet.
How do we keep prices so low?
We are gang* printers.
We don't print one job at a time. Imagine photocopying a business card - it's small enough to put 6, 8 or 10 different cards up together on a sheet and copy them at the same time - well that's how we print.
We produce 4, 8, 16, 32 or even 64 orders at a time on a large printing press - larger than A0 size. This means that the printing set-up costs can be split between a number of orders which helps keep the cost per customer very low.
*See wikipedia for a more detailed explanation of 'gang-run' printing.
Print4biz handles all the enquiries, prepares all the quotes, makes sure the artwork is 'print-ready', supplies proofs and organises payment, in other words all the 'client-side' stuff - which leaves the associate printers to simply log-on to the system and download whatever jobs they need to fill any spare capacity they may have on that particular day.
takes care of all website and promotional activity, says: 'Print4biz has the contacts, the equipment, the tradesmen and enough joint capacity to print anything, any size, any quantity. The associates are all online and linked by digital communications and with overnight delivery within the UK mainland, they're confident that you'll never have to look elsewhere for commercial printing.'
