  • Cost of Print - Percentage Opportunity Is In The Process
  • How to lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)?
    • Often, recorded print costs represent merely the cost of print production and few buyers calculate the cost of the entire project from start to finish.
    • To maximize the cost-effectiveness of any print program, take a careful look at other contributing aspects of TCO so that you can make better decisions, reduce costs, and improve efficiency and quality.
    • By analyzing the possible stages of print projects and assigning a fair cost for the time and materials involved, you will be able to better understand TCO and find creative ways to lower it.
