How to Choose a Good Printing Company

Choosing the right print company for your printing work is crucial to creating a good image for your business. We know there’s a vast choice of print companies, from the local print company offering low-cost, basic printing services, to the global online print company that will fulfil your order speedily from a distance. So what should you be looking out for to choose a good printing company?


To ensure your chosen print company will fulfil your expectations, we recommend you check the quality of their recent work. Look for case studies or projects and ensure the print looks clear and sharp, without smudging, and the colour across company branding is uniform.


Before you choose a print supplier, it’s also a good idea to check their environmental statement. It may be important for your business to connect with a company that chooses environmentally sustainable ways of working as AB Print does.


Check the reputation and customer references of your chosen print company, and its customer service structure. Look for reviews and testimonials from recent customers and ask questions about the values that are important to you.

AB Print is committed to an impressive level of customer service that sees your print job through in-house from start to finish.


We don’t just mean look for the cheapest option, but do check that your chosen print company will be using the most cost-effective and efficient method of printing for your job as this ensures you invest your printing budget effectively. Digital printing is good for low-cost, fast printing on 200 or fewer copies. For larger quantities, your print company should be steering you towards litho printing, which works out cheaper for larger quantities and produces a higher-quality print with the option for special print finishes or effects.

How to Choose a Good Printing Company

Whatever type of event you are going to, you should always be prepared with marketing tools and props. You should use the opportunity to showcase your company and your brand, and this can be done with a range of printed materials. Regardless of what specific type of material you bring, the very fact that you have taken the time and initiative to invest in them shows signs of a well-prepared, well-structured business with a clear understanding of organisation and branding. All of which are traits that a future client can have confidence investing into.

Business cards

A business card is essential for any business event as they have the potential to increase sales, expand your customer base, and extend your client portfolio. Business cards enable you to act on conversations with potential new clients and can be the kickstart the beginning of a lucrative business relationship. Also, it doesn’t matter what type of corporate event or exhibition you are at, business cards can be taken anywhere thanks to their size and portability.

Business cards are printed using digital printing, this type of printing is effective for quick turnarounds of large orders. It can print onto a range of card that range between 60gsm and 400gsm depending on how strong and durable you want your product to be.

Commercial Stationery

Stationery is another effective marketing tool as they don’t get thrown away as often as business cards do. Instead, they can be used on a daily basis by your clients and therefore have the power to continue to market for you even after the event. Commercial stationery usually stays in business environments and cleverly capitalises on the fact companies will always need stationary close to their desks.

Exhibition stands

If you are exhibiting at an event or conference then a high-quality modular exhibition display is a great tool to have. If you produce a creative and attractive sign you can help your business stand apart from the competition.
