Printing Challenges

Finding the right type of paper for your print project can be challenging.


What do you do if you need paper that is durable enough for heavy ink coverage? Or an oversized piece with unique folds? What type of paper will work best for a particular project? What happens when the printer tells you it can’t be done?

Can you relate to one of these challenges?

As you ponder these questions, listen to the story of how communication and collaboration can not only expand your capabilities but also provide new ways of finding the best solutions. > > HERE! < <


The Secret Sauce: Collaboration & Trusted Partnerships

Printing is much more than putting ink on paper. Early collaboration and communication on a project are vital to avoid disappointing situations. Many print projects wouldn’t be possible if it weren’t for the meaningful relationships and collaboration between the merchant, printer and designer. By being open to the possibilities and creating a trusted partnership with your vendors, you have the opportunity to create something truly unique.



In this podcast, you will learn:

  • How to build an effective team
  • Collaboration process between the merchant, printer and designer
  • Tips for planning your next print project
