What is a Print Broker?
In general a broker is an independent agent used extensively in some industries. A broker’s prime responsibility is to bring sellers and buyers together and thus a broker is the third-person facilitator between a buyer and a seller. An example would be a real estate broker who facilitates the sale of a property.
Now, a “Print” Broker takes a company’s print job and presents it to multiple professional print entities who compete in price, quality and turn around time for that job. The result is a customer can get a greater quantity of product, a better quality of product and achieve a cheaper price per piece by taking multiple bids on any project.
You may ask what JPulver Marketing & Design requires as a fee for this service?
There is NO set up-front fee for this service! Multiple print bids will be submitted by various printers and the lowest (with quantity and quality taken into account) is presented to the customer. Because pricing is so competitive JPulver Marketing & Design can “charge” a slight mark-up but because of the long term relationship with these print facilities, who are looking for jobs to fill their down-time on their presses overall price for the customer often remains lower than a local printer can offer.
JPulver Marketing & Design creates a win-win situation for both the printer and the company that needs the work done.
Is the printed product inferior in any way?
NO! In fact, in a lot of cases the printed product is superior in paper stock and print quality.
