Promotional Products Distributor Stops Costly Error and Increases Margin with Professional Printing Services from PrintingForLess.com
America's Print Shop® provides unexpected profit to small business owner
Livingston, MT - August 24, 2010 - Today, PrintingForLess.com (PFL) announced that they helped customer Jerry West, a promotional products distributor with IpromoteU, stop a costly error, make a 30% margin and increase profits using brochures, business cards, and other, professional printing services from America's Print Shop®
"With extra costs for proofs, shipping, customized work, and additional hassles working with my local printer, I could never afford to offer professional printing services to my clients," says West. "But with PFL's reasonable prices, now my customers receive high-quality letterhead, business cards, envelopes, catalogs, brochures, and other printed materials. Plus, PFL helped me catch a costly error."
PFL Helps West Increase Profits with Professional Printing Services
While processing a print job, West realized that his client missed an error on their envelopes, and they were mailing their marketing materials to the wrong address. As soon as he realized the error, he contacted his PFL team member.
"After speaking to Jerry on the phone, we knew this was an urgent matter that could end up costing him a lot of stress, money and customers if something wasn't done immediately," states Brian Murphy, West's PFL Team Member. "We quickly updated the erroneous addresses, printed the new envelopes and sent them to Jerry's clients in just three days, and we didn't charge him for the reprint or mailing. We just wanted to help him solve his problem as quickly as possible."
"This never would have happened with a local printer," states Jerry. "I never would've been able to get this first-class service, quality and fast turnaround. And because my clients were so happy with the results, they gave me an order for promotional hats and pins that I never would have received otherwise. This was an additional $500.00 profit for me that I wouldn't have had without PFL's great service."
By selling professional print services like brochures, business cards, envelopes, and more with his promotional products, West:
- Made a 30% margin;
- Impressed his customers with quality, ease and speed of delivery; and
- Sold additional marketing pieces to increase profits.
"Instead of having to track someone down at a local printer every time I need to speak to someone about my printing needs, one of my PFL team members is always there to answer my questions and deal with any issues immediately," states Jerry. "It would be crazy not to sell printing, because this opens up a whole new customized product to sell to customers. With PFL, the turnaround is extremely fast, the price is right and it beats local suppliers in my situation. PFL includes a great bunch of folks, and they do a great job!"
