Overwhelmed by Print Needs and Order Management?

Businesses with multiple departments and locations have significant printing needs. With a wide range of employees who require varying marketing materials, you may feel overrun with requests for approval. Designs for everything from business cards for new hires to signage for trade shows probably come across your desk.

If you’re too buried to stay on top of these requests, your employees face delays getting the materials they need. Or worse yet, your teams might be using all kinds of printed collateral in their work with no cohesive look or brand. 

This mismatched presentation creates a confusing message that doesn’t speak clearly to your ideal customer. Your company deserves better, and a web-to-print storefront is the perfect solution.

DRSi Web-to-Print portalWhat Is a Web-to-Print Service?

Also called remote publishing, a web-to-print storefront is a customized and branded site that houses all of your marketing collateral templates:

  • Brochures
  • Booklets
  • Business Cards
  • Name Tags
  • Notepads
  • Notecards
  • Signage
  • Promotional Items

It is a print-shop portal that allows you and your team to access bespoke templates for your printed materials. Rather than every department or location handling their print needs independently, you have a centralized ordering system that results in a cohesive marketing presence.

How Does a Web-to-Print Site Work?

The DRSi team creates a home base on our site for your company. This password-protected digital real estate has your branding and is dedicated solely to your business.

You work with our experts to establish templates that fit your company’s brand and style guidelines. With these templates in place, your employees and managers never have to wait for approval before ordering what they need. And they aren’t left to fend for themselves, creating random designs that don’t fit the brand.

As you build the templates, you can set which fields are customizable and which aren’t. This level of protection ensures that, essentially, all printed marketing materials have pre-approval.

Employees receive login credentials and can order from anywhere. Once our team receives the order, we print and deliver the materials quickly so that you can enjoy business as usual.

How Does a Web-to-Print Storefront Serve Your Company?

Without a custom online store, you are probably facing all of these issues:

  • Printing costs that are over budget due to errors and misordering
  • Marketing materials that are off-brand and off message
  • Delays in securing marketing collateral due to an overwhelmed approval process
  • Wasted time that you should be spending on more pressing matters

Once you set up your remote publishing solution, these challenges will disappear, freeing you to handle income-producing work that you enjoy. Here is how a web-to-print storefront can help you and your company.

Reduce Costs

Handling your wide array of printing needs on a case-by-case basis is costly in several ways.

  • You are likely to have misprints when too many people are involved in the design and ordering process. 
  • Wasted work hours pile up as you try to handle all of the approval requests for materials throughout your company’s locations and departments.
  • An inconsistent brand image costs your company awareness which leads to missed sales.

By establishing your customized web-to-print shop, you eliminate these problems. You will have consistently branded materials that speak to your audience and establish your presence. Additionally, you avoid errors and misprints by making templates that guide your team to create the right product for print. You also streamline the process so that time on the clock is productive rather than wasted.

Reduce Delays

National and global companies have a never-ending demand for promotional and marketing collateral. They require a lot of materials quickly and, often, in several languages. Requiring approval every time a department or location needs to place a print order wastes enormous amounts of time.

If your team has ever been without their needed marketing materials because of order delays, then you know how frustrating that situation is. By creating your company’s unique ordering portal, you can eliminate these delays and mishaps.

Your employees and managers will no longer have to submit designs for approval and wait for your busy marketing department to double-check everything piece by piece. Instead, they can quickly choose from the approved templates, customize them where applicable, and place the order.

Reduce Confusion

A confused potential customer does not become an eager paying customer. 

At every step, your marketing materials must be on-brand. But if it’s every department for themselves in your company, the message will not be clear or persuasive.

With a unique, branded web-to-print site, your company will be ready to present a confident, clear, cohesive brand that doesn’t waver or become confused. Every business card, notepad, and pamphlet will carry your company’s aesthetic and look no matter who orders them.

Your portal also removes confusion for your staff. You can replace any complicated approval and ordering processes with one streamlined shop. They will have a consistent and easy way to order what they need, and our team will deliver it quickly.
