The Two Printers that Solve Printing’s Biggest Problems
Industrial printing is by no means a new phenomenon but continues to persist as an irreplaceable service relied upon by SMEs and enterprise businesses alike for their continual operations. Label printing, packaging, embellishments, and more — there is no shortage of demand for production printing services, especially with the recent e-commerce boom making pristine packaging more important than ever due to it being a larger part of a customer’s shopping experience today.
However, many printers continue to struggle with certain difficulties orthodoxly inherent to the print industry. At the top of the list of such issues are two prevalent problems that have riddled production printing companies for decades on end:
The Two Prevalent Problems in Production Printing
Firstly, slow printing processes — often caused by the nature of water-base inkjet technology utilised by most offset print machines — mean that production printing companies aren’t operating at the highest productivity levels, with those opting for faster printing processes commonly doing so at the expense of print image quality.
Secondly, production printing companies in Singapore often compete using prices, with many mistakenly thinking that there is little they can offer in terms of service differentiation. This leads to unhealthy price wars that can result in dismal margins which leave little investment funds for further business growth.
Both problems are in no way modernist, though they continue to plague production printing companies even in contemporary times.
