The #1 reason why your sign or copy shop should get into label printing is that an in-house label printing system will mean a significant increase in your bottom line profit margins!
Sign and copy shops depend on quick customer turn-overs and usually offer same-day customer service. Many of those same customers however, need label printing services as well, and often at the same time. If you are not already providing in-house label printing services, this creates an inconvenient problem for your customers. First, they will be forced to leave your shop and find a separate label printing company.
This aggravates your potential customers’ problem when they discover they must endure a much longer fulfillment process when it comes to getting their labels printed from a separate label company. They may drop what it was they originally came into your shop for in the first place, never to return. Meanwhile, it usually it takes days from the time customers send their label templates to a label printing company to the time they are ready for pickup or delivery.
Your minimum order must be…
Then there’s an additional hurtle with label companies: minimum orders! Label printing companies require a minimum order of labels which is often much more then what your potential customer actually needs at the time. With this needless pressure, customers must also take time to calculate how much more labels they will need of the same type in the future. There’s always the risk of getting way more of the same label then they need with their minimum order.
Many shops that offer sign printing services, offer copy services as well. Whether your business is already a combination of the two, or is focused on one or the other, the great majority of your customers no doubt, will require label printing services as well. By adding an additional in-house label printing service, your business will draw more customers by offering the attractive convenience of a, “One Stop Sign, Copy & Label Printing Service”.
