Print management is an essential part of design, photography and the production of promotional material. There is no point in producing fantastic graphics, images and design if the printing of the finished product isn’t up to scratch.
The designers at 2020 have a detailed understanding of the print process, how it works and what the costs will be. The type of paper your choose is often highly relevant to the design and our designers can suggest the best weight of paper for your job, as well as recommending matt or gloss and whether a laminated paper or spot UV lacquer might enhance your printed material. We also keep abreast of new developments in printing so that we can offer a full range of printing options to our clients.
If our client is providing the print material, we can also offer artworking and digital manipulation. This can be vital for old documents that arrive with stains, marks or tears; we can clean them up and produce a digital version that can be perfectly printed again and again.
Print management is also about managing the process: liaising with our clients to establish how they want their finished product to look and then either printing in-house or briefing our printers.
Although a lot of our printing is done in-house, we also provide a print brokering service for larger or more complex work. This takes the stress away from the client, as we will deal directly with the printer on their behalf, providing a complete bespoke service from concept through design to finished product.
