Locating a commercial printing company in London who you might rely on might seem like a lot of trouble.
The good thing is that if you know what to look for it need not to be difficult.
That is the advice from first class print professionals in London and some of them have provided some guidance about the sort of things you might be on the lookout for when selecting a London print company.
You should start by checking that the company you are thinking of using for your printing with are actually in London at all.
It is not unusual for a business to advertise their printing services to a London audience, but on further investigation you might discover that they are based many miles away.
This is something that should most certainly concern you, because paper is a surprisingly expensive material.
In reality you may find that the cost of shipping the printing to you from your so called London printers might be as much as the original print job itself.
It makes sense to look at the Contact Us section on any "London Printers" website in order to ensure that their address is really in the capital. Of course even then it is quite possible that the printers are merely using a London address to impress.
In these days of sophisticated approaches to internet marketing it is quite possible that your prospective printing company is using a London service address and phone number, but could still be based in the North East of England.
Ultimately it will make sense to drop the printing company an email and find out more by asking a little about where they are located.
It also makes sense to simply phone your potential new printers and ask them if they are in London or not.
Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with printing companies elsewhere in the UK, it's just that if you want the convenience of being able to check proofs and paying far less for delivery - if you are based in London then it makes sense to use a local print business.
