“Think ... before you print”
Unfortunately, the modern day “Print Management” organisation is little different to the print farming and broking companies of yesteryear. They will have no consideration for your internal print capability and invariably own no print plant of their own.
As a consequence, all of your print requirements will be sold on to whoever quotes the cheapest price and ultimately re-sold back to you at the highest profit. In order to achieve additional margin, these middle men will typically store your print in the cheapest possible location, rarely in close proximity to your business or your requirement and with little regard for the conditions within which it is stored.
Ironically, “Print Management” has become the epitome of the very culture it was intended to eradicate.
