The Difference between a Print Broker and a Commercial Printing Company

A printing company is selling the capabilities of their equipment.

We are working for the client to produce a printing project at the best value and quality within your budget.

Due to our substantial buying power we can usually source your printing requirements at a lower cost than a single one-time buyer can achieve, and these costs are passed onto you, our client . . .

The Role Of Our Print Brokerage Service

To serve the client, not the printer and co-ordinate and manage a specific printing project for the client.

Provide project management services and printing industry expertise to the client.

Source each component of the printing project from vendors who provide the best quality and value for the specific elements of the project.
