Print Management

Our Process
Types of Projects

If you already have an established relationship with a printer, we are happy to submit the completed files of your job to him or her. Many clients, however, are unfamiliar with printing terminology and processes and unsure which printing companies are an appropriate match for their particular job. Print management from Archetype typically includes the following services:

Obtaining three quotes from printers on each project.

Negotiating with printers and helping you select the best one for the job.

Helping you select paper.

Working with the chosen printer throughout the process to ensure that your job is printed correctly.

When appropriate, traveling to the printing company to check your job as it comes off the press; this is called performing a "press check" or reviewing a "press proof."

Your savings from obtaining multiple printer quotes can be substantial, and we highly recommend this service. Unlike most firms, we do not mark up your printing costs by 20% but charge by the hour to manage your printing for you. Smaller jobs usually incur one to two hours of print management time, while larger jobs may incur four or more depending on complexity and whether a press check is recommended.
