Print management

Our experience of print buying and management means that we have a good knowledge of print techniques and are able to recommend the most appropriate for each individual project.

We manage the print buying for many of our clients. We can organise print on a project by project basis or review and negotiate annual print requirements. Print can either be bought directly by clients or through Howdy. Either way we are happy to manage the process throughout.

We manage the whole print process from writing the print spec, scheduling, briefing the job, checking proofs and running sheets through to final delivery.

We always get quotes from at least two printers and regularly review quality and service from the printers that we work with, as well as looking out for new printers to work with and keeping up to date with new print techniques.

A long term client recently asked us to review and take over the management of their print purchasing to streamline the process and ensure that they were getting good value for money. This resulted in a marked improvement in quality and an overall saving of around of 25% on their annual print costs.
