This episode of YHBTV is all about developing a relationship with a printer or other production vendor. Between my own background as a design project manager and Sharon’s experience in marketing and PR, we realized we have so many insights and thoughts to share about working with a printer, especially as a maker who may not know the ins and outs of the industry. You’ll hear us dive into:
The value of having a solid relationship with a printer
The process of getting and comparing bids
The Printer’s Triangle
How to address issues or poorly met expectations
Finding the balance between budget, capabilities, and your dream results
Sharon and I get a little into the weeds, but this episode is chock full of great information, so you might want to grab a notebook and jot some things down as we go, especially if you’re ready to take the leap beyond quick-turn online solutions into a local printer relationship.
