Try these ways to spend smart:

  • Proof thoroughly-at least three times. And never signthe proof until you're sure. If you've approved a"mistake," you'll have to pay the cost ofreprinting.
  • Evaluate your forms. Are they as efficient andfunctional as possible? Can you combine a few forms into one? Canyour six part form shrink to four parts?
  • Order smart. Only print what you can use in a reasonabletime. Ordering too much not only ties up your money, but you alsorisk your materials becoming obsolete.
  • Seek advice. Ask your printer if there's anythingyou can do to reduce costs.

Finally, price should not be your sole criteria. Considerquality, consistency, service and support before you choose aprinter.
