There are so many printing resources online, from the neighborhood pharmacy that can print your pictures in less than an hour, to the big box online retailers that can turn your prints into mugs, tote bags and blankets. All of these choices are really great for you, the consumer, who needs to find the right printer for the project. But with so many choices, how do you select which company is best for custom printing online?
What’s Important to YOU in Custom Printing Online?
First, determine your project and think about what’s important to you. If you want to take your smart phone images and create a cozy blanket for grandma, then photo printing quality is probably not your top concern. Especially since the images are being printed on a non-traditional (and not flat) surface. Not to mention the wash and wear. What is important to you is being able to use custom printing online to customize a gift and get it turned around quickly.
On the other hand, if you want a crisp and clear high definition photo printed in a gallery-style standout frame, quality is important. You are likely planning to showcase this custom wall art and you want to see every detail of that image. Or if you want a large format direct to canvas print, the workmanship of the frame, the quality of the canvas and the clarity of the printing process are all important. The larger you print, the more resolution and quality matter. And if you want out of the box interior design pieces, like wall decals and direct to Dibond prints, then it may also be important you actually talk to someone about your ideas. Someone with design and professional printing experience who can guide you through options and prevent possible hiccups.
Technology and Service Matter
The cost of custom printing online will matter of course, but like many things, you get what you pay for!
When it comes to professional printing, what matters more are technology and service. There is no replacing expertise and state-of-the-art printing technology. It doesn’t make sense for pharmacies and big box stores to carry this sort of equipment and specialized staff, since printing is not their primary business.
But at a company like ArtisanHD, professional printing is our entire business.
