Submitting a printing quote request can be a daunting task but it doesn’t have to be. A good rule of thumb to be as specific as possible when submitting your quote request to your print partner so you can expect your quote in a timely manner. Below is a list of some basic but important information to include in your next printing quote request:
Project Description ie. Newsletter, Booklet, Flyer, Poster
Print ready files provided?
Delivery Due Date
Flat Unfolded and Finished/ Folded Size
Type of Stock*: (If this is something you are unsure of your salesperson will be able to steer you in the right direction and suggest stocks that will best suite your project) ie. Text, Cover, Weight
Number of Colors: ie. Black + PMS, 4 Color Process, Aqueous Coating
Print on 1 or 2 Sides
Number of Pages (if booklet)
Is a Hard Proof Required?
Finishing: ie. Folds, Perforations, Binding
Mailing: ie. Mailing Lists, Inserts, PO Location
By including this information in your next RFQ it should get you off to a really good start. Now, if you don’t have all of the details for your print project up front, give your print partner a call and they will be more than happy to help.
