In order to help you with your catalogue printing costs we have compiled a list of three production tips to possibly help you save money.
In print the magic number is 16. 16 is the total number of A4 pages we can fit on a sheet. If you are looking to save money on your print costs then ensure that the total number of text pages of your product is divisible by 16. In this way you can actually print more pages and save money on your job. The reason for this is that you save money on 2 to 3 make readies and runs for a printed product by only having to print 1. At Warners we also have 32 page presses meaning that you could save even more!
For example: In some cases a 28 page A4 product would be more expensive than a 32 page product as the 24 pages would require 3 sets of plates, 3 make readies, 3 runs and therefore produce 3 lots of wastes. The 32 pages would only have 1 of each or at most 2 if produced on a 16 page press.
In order to ensure that your printed product is produced most effectively it is essential that you select the right printing method. Below is a quick and basic summation of the key points about each method.
The paper you choose is also a very good way of potentially saving money. Should you print on a lighter stock of paper the overall product will not weigh as much. This potentially can save money on mailing costs which are often the most expensive component of a printed campaign.
