How do you find high quality digital printing in NYC?
There are lots of digital printing shops in New York City. So how do you go about finding the one that is right for your print project? The best way to answer that question is to ask yourself which of the following attributes are most important to you:
- Friendly/Knowledgeable Service
Not all printers are as quality conscious as others. Like any industry printers find their niche. Some printers focus on color laser copies (aka Kinko’s), some focus on long offset print runs, some focus on being the cheapest, still others focus on only taking orders online. At Influence Print we focus on offering the highest quality, short run, digital printing available in the New York City, Tri State area. We are the digital printing experts in New York City!
We selected our slogan, “Printing in Real Time” for a specific reason. We operate in the “city that never sleeps” and a city that marches to a different beat. Pretty much every thing in New York City operates at break neck speed and that includes Influence Print. From receipt of the customers files to delivery back to the customer, more than three quarters of our workflow are back in our customers hands in less than 24 hours. We designed our workflow and processes around the concept of speed. We can literally have your files on our presses and printing in less than 10 minutes from time you send them to us. We are a completely self contained facility with in house bindery, messengers and delivery vans. So we have complete control over getting your job done fast and delivered on time. Influence Print specializes in rush printing for New York City based customers who need overnight printing services.
The old adage “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true. The digital printer who has a low priced color laser printer is not possible going to be able to print your document with the same quality result as a printer who is running a half million dollar state of the art digital press. When it comes to digital printing technology there is a huge difference in what money can buy. For example, most common digital laser printers use powered toner to create your image on a sheet of paper. The HP Indigo digital presses that we use here at Influence Print use liquid ink which produces much more brilliant colors and higher resolution than their lower cost competitors.
How important is friendly and knowledgeable customer service to getting your print project completed to your expectations? Well, if you’re like most people you are not an expert in printing technologies and all the various options available to you. That’s where a company that offers great customer service differentiates itself from the competition. If you’ve ever tried to use an online printing company you probably found out that it’s almost impossible to get to talk to anyone on the phone. That’s because they expect you to figure it all out and just place your order. They discourage your from contacting them because helping your with questions is not part of their business model. At Influence Print we understand that you have questions and concerns. We know you don’t like surprises when your completed project shows up and it wasn’t what you were expecting. Our customer service staff have many years of experience with all aspects of the printing process so they are well equipped to answer your printing questions and alleviate any concerns you might have.
Why is local important? For two very big reasons. Speed and Delivery! If you rush printing and try to use a printer in say, Colorado, there is no way that printer can print your job and get it back to you the same day. And even if they could deliver that fast the Federal Express charges for the delivery might be higher than the actual printing costs. It just doesn’t make economical sense. Influence Print is a local New York City based printer with our own fleet of messengers and delivery vans so getting the rush printing delivered to you is a piece of cake for us.
