5 Benefits of Hiring Professional Printing Services for Your Business

Simply put, your printed material says a lot about your company’s image, brand, and values. As such, it should be as appealing, professional and flawless as the image of the company you want to represent.

When it comes to printing, cutting corners in-house can lead to inevitable (and potentially costly) errors being made, so it’s vital you pay this area of business the attention it deserves. A key way of doing this is by entrusting the professionals with your print job – minimising the risk of mistakes and poor quality work as a result. To help you understand why this is so important, we’re exploring just 5 of the many benefits of hiring professional printing services for your business.

Higher quality of paper

To start with, it goes without saying that one of the most notable benefits of hiring a professional printing company can be found in the specialised resources already at their disposal. While this covers a multitude of technology and material, the most important one that also happens to be the easiest to look over, is the quality of paper.

Naturally, the type of paper used plays a crucial role in the outcome of the print job, so making sure the right one is chosen for the job is an important factor to consider. As experts in the field, printers benefit from having a variety of different paper types at their disposal – something company offices simply don’t have access to. This ensures that work is carried out to a high, noticeable standard – after all, the better the quality of paper you use, the higher the quality of the print is.

Environmentally friendly

In-house printing can not only be expensive but it can be incredibly wasteful on energy, paper, ink and more. Here at Statex, however, we’ve made crucial steps towards reducing our impact on the environment – meaning that the work you put through us has been carried out with the planet in mind. We’re also proud to be recognised as a member of the ISO 14000 family who carbon balance our paper, use vegetable based inks, and recycle everything from paper to heat from the presses!

As part of this, we’ve invested in the latest green printing presses and plate processing technology which has led to an important reduction in both chemical and water usage. In addition to this, we only work with similar, environmentally regulated suppliers – helping to ensure that all aspects of what we do remains eco-conscious and compliant with the latest sustainable guidelines.


For those companies who have access to in-house printing tools, there’s a high chance such tools are being used for large-scale jobs that can burn a significant hole in a business’ pocket. After all, the more that’s printed, the higher the fixed and variable costs of paper, ink, and machinery maintenance – not forgetting the wage cost of those employees having to oversee this type of work. As a matter of fact, for a large number of companies, in-house printing isn’t a cost-effective solution at all.
Printing professionals on the other hand, are just that: professional – meaning they have a firm grasp on how much of their resources will be needed and are able to source these at a wholesale rate. In addition, printers benefit from already having the highest quality printing equipment available to them and are accustomed to printing large orders that doesn’t waste ink, paper, time, or energy, making their services generally more cost-effective.

Professional finish

Perhaps the most obvious benefit of outsourcing your work to a print company is the quality you’ll receive in return. From the tools and equipment used to the project management of the job at hand, printers are experts in carrying out an expert-led service and delivering a professional end product.

When it comes to printing, there are so many options for you to choose from in terms of the desired finish of your output. For example, do you prefer laminate, glossy or matte? Do you even know the difference? These sorts of things cannot be achieved with typical desktop printing. Instead, by hiring a printing company to help consult and carry out the job to a professional standard, you can rest assured your end product will look slick and stylish – reflecting your business’ own values and image.

Mistakes are eradicated

When it comes to printing, there are so many things that can go wrong. Even the smallest mistakes can lead to significant problems and can be detrimental to both the finished product and your pocket in the instance that a job has to be reprinted. Such things could include; delayed materials not arriving in time, technical errors in print files, problems with formatting files for various printers, and poor quality print jobs that hurt the company brand.

As professionals who know the ins and outs of what could go wrong and have measures in place to stop the chances of this happening, printers can give you peace of mind that your work will be carried out to a high-standard according to the brief, in time for your deadline.
