Print buyers are embracing the internet. Shouldn't you?
Web to Print Web-to-Print enabled printing web sites like those we provide at Printing Storefront Solutions provide valuable benefits the printer can use as powerful tools to offer technology that gives their printing customers the ability to log-on and shop Private and Secure Customer Web Sites (or portals as some would call them) anytime of the day or night using any browser on any computer with internet access anywhere.
Regardless of when or where they are when they want to make a repeat printing order or order a new printing project, they can simply visit their own Web to Print enabled customer web site and place their order.
Instant Pricing and Price Quotes
Along with the ability for the customer to place their order anytime or any day of the week, the online experience created with a well set up Web to Print site or customer printing storefront web site will enable the customer to get Instant Pricing and Price Quotes.
This is a benefit for the buyer who does not have to wait to know what he or she will spend on a particular printing project. It also benefits the printing company who is providing the Web to Print enabled site to have the site and the technology prepare and deliver this information with little or no human involvement for typical day to day printing order transactions.
Full Customer Customization Abilities
Another very important reason printers and their customers really become attached to Web to Print is that the customers are given the ability to enter their own personal information into editable wet-to-print documents which gives them the ability to have ultimate control of what used to be a time consuming and sometimes painful back and forth process we used to call typesetting and proof approval.
The customer can enter his own user information online, view his proof, make changes if necessary, and then finally approve the proof he created himself using the web-to-print technology to build perfect print ready files to take to the print production floor.
From the printers’ perspective, this whole process is very cost effective and also quite liberating.
Less Human Involvement, Lower Cost, More Accurate
With Web to Print the customer and the technology does most if not all of the typesetting and prepress work required to get a new job from conception to the shipping department.
Less human involvement with each job, less opportunity for errors and/or omissions, and faster production times means each job which comes to you through your Printing Storefront Solutions web site using Web to Print costs less and makes you more profit!
Don't wait to embrace Web to Print because your competitors will!
