Ways to Reduce Your Printing Costs

by Kristen White Blogger

You may not worry about printing a few copies once every often. However, if your printing needs rise, you may notice that the costs add up in a hurry, and suddenly, you are dealing with a huge recurring expense. Luckily, you can do a few things to reduce printing costs if it comes to this.

Printing is an essential part of any business. Companies of all shapes and sizes will need printing services at some point or the other. They need to print banners, billboards, bank cards, blueprints, binders, and books. They also need calendars, checks, copies, catalogs, and coupons, not to mention e-books, envelopes, handouts, invoices, magazines, paper bags, and so on. Printing demands are a never-ending part of running a business. That’s why it makes sense for business owners or managers to want to learn about ways to reduce printing costs.

Ways to reduce your printing costs:

Find the best deal

Many printing service providers exist today and are always on the lookout for companies like yours. Since you are the customer, you have the power to weigh all the available options to ensure you get cheap printing services. However, you should be careful not to fall prey to mediocre printing services that lure you with low prices and deliver substandard copies.

Print in bulk

There are many benefits to printing in bulk. It not only saves you time and energy but money as well. Bulk printing is a great option when you need a regular volume of printed projects like high volume newsletter or mass mailing ad campaign. Bulk printing is cost-effective and offers quick turn-around times. It is a financially practical option for large companies that are likely to see ROIs quickly.

Double (or even triple) check your work

Printing mistakes like leaving out essential details, obscuring company name, spelling and grammar errors, ambiguous language, and meaningless images could cost you thousands in printing costs. While little, such mistakes have the power to render the entire print useless. You’d need to rectify them and order new printing. Unfortunately, this not only costs you time and money, but it can also cost you, customers when your competitors beat you to it. The best way to avoid this is by proofreading the final draft or previewing to cut out what you don’t need.

Outsource printing needs

One of the greatest advantages of outsourcing is cost saving. Outsourcing reduces your overhead cost. It gives you access to equipment and supplies that aren’t within your company’s budget and negates the need to hire someone to deal with printing duties.

Reduce document size

Dead space on your copies could be driving your printing cost higher up. The next time you are editing your work, try doing some tweaks here and there to increase the amount of information you put on each page. This will translate to fewer pages per print out.


Print marketing is an incredibly powerful and cost-effective way to create brand awareness, attract leads, and convert them into buying clients. With the above tips, you should take advantage of printing, while still saving on costs.
