Short run printing – From single posters to short run flyers

10 October 2018

One of the many benefits of using an online printing company is that you can get a great price and a quick turnaround on short run printing.

In the past – and before the advent of digitisation and print e-commerce functionality – many printers preferred only to deal with large run orders. Why? Because before digital printing became widely available, litho printing meant that only large orders were cost-effective to produce. Aluminium plates had to be custom-made for every order, which was time-consuming and expensive.

However, digital printing is now extremely rapid, flexible and high-quality. It means that even the smallest of print orders, such as single posters or small runs of flyers, can be produced for customers quickly and for highly competitive prices.

When you contact an online printing company such as Instaprint for your short run printing needs, you’ll find that your order can be accommodated at short notice and at an excellent price. No matter how small the short run order is, it will be possible to enjoy a quick turnaround time and to see a fantastic quality of colour printing in the resulting piece.

The added benefits of online printing processes

Additionally, digitisation means that customers can place their short run printing order online via a printer’s website. You simply complete a quick form with all of the information needed to get a quote for the job and in many cases an instant price will be returned. On Instaprint, upfront prices are provided for simple and common jobs, such as an individual A2 poster.

Where short run printing jobs are more complex, the online printing company will send the details of your work request to their production team for an accurate quote. This ensures that any queries are clarified before the job begins and gives the customer peace of mind that their job can be fulfilled within time constraints and to budget – something that is vital when end customers are reliant on an efficient job, delivered with great quality.

Once the price is received and approved by the customer, the designer can simply upload the artwork for the short run job and it will be processed within the timescales given. It really is that simple and offers fantastic opportunities for people and companies who just need a small print job – but with the usual high quality!
