A successful business has many needs, from communication equipment to marketing material, not to mention a quality product or service. Computing equipment, with the associated accessories and software, can consume a big portion of a company’s budget. In addition, there are maintenance costs, wages, insurance and any unforeseen circumstances you need to be prepared for.
With so much going on, the last thing you want to worry about is whether or not you can get 500 business cards delivered in time for an event. However, many businesses still rely on third parties for promotional material, office stationery and more.
Having access to a high-quality colour laser printergives smaller businesses in, particular, the opportunity to save money on marketing material and stationery. Here are three simple ways to make the most of your laser printer in a way that is time and cost efficient.
DIY Business Cards
Every business needs to network in order to build their profile and remain current. A professional business card is still a must, even in the digital age. If your business is small and you’re unlikely to be giving away hundreds at a time, it can be expensive an impractical to order them in bulk. A simpler, and cheaper, solution would be to print them yourself.
You can take advantage of various online packages to design a professional-looking business card, which you can print out at your leisure. There are several laser printers that can print on card and can be set up to print business cards. If you need help finding the right one, contact us and one of our expert sales team will be able to help you.
When it comes to marketing and promotional materials, the more you can do in-house, the more you can save. Again, printing your own material gives you the flexibility to print what you want, when you want. You can personalise pieces and easily update information, as and when required.
Printing your own company calendar will allows you to customise it according to your business needs. Obviously, you’ll want to schedule meetings and appointments using a shared digital calendar but having a printed version on the wall will allow everyone to see important events at a glance.
You could also extend this to printing desktop calendars and organisers. Why have these on your desktop? Because research has shown that we’re more likely to remember something if we write it down.
These are just three of the ways in which a colour laser printercan help your business. There are many more ways you can use your printer to save money and improve efficiency. Everything from headed paper to business contracts, even health and safety posters, can be printed in-house.
