Benefits Of Outsourcing High-Volume Copying

There are many ways of outsourcing high-volume photocopying work. If you are just looking at numbers you could argue that copying work in-house will save you some money, and for smaller jobs, where quality is not important, this can be the case. A single document for an in-house use like meeting notes can be printed on your desk printer or MFD (Multi-Function Device) in the office. However, for larger volumes of printing this is going to result in a loss of both money and resources. Most print companies that have digital black and white (or colour) machines can run at lightning-fast speed, churning out A4 copies at 100 sheets per minute and faster. If you have a large amount of hard copies then scanning and printing will be a lot more economical to outsource. One example of the benefits of outsourcing over in-house copying occurred about 7–8 years ago when a client called us requesting a cost for a large photocopying job. The client was a solicitor. The job was priced at around £1000 and was needed back to their office within a couple of days. We told the client this would not be an issue at all and the job was all ready to go until, at the last minute, the client cancelled. Her boss had calculated that as they had various office printers in-house they were going to save money and carry out the printing themselves. The next morning the client called us — it had all gone wrong. We were informed that they had spent huge amounts on ink cartridges, as they had run out quicker than expected and been forced to make a late-night dash to Staples to top up. On top of [...]

What Type of Binding should I use for my Training Manual?

Another factor to consider is how long you are expecting your delegates to keep the manuals. If the manual is going to be used for only the duration of the course, or for a short time afterwards then a different style of binding would be better than if the manual is to be kept for future long term use. Another factor to consider is how much the course is going to be used whilst on the training course. If the book is to lay flat and also if your delegates need to add more pages to the manual.   We have detailed the most popular binding options below and discussed the pros and cons of each style of binding.   Wire-binding: This is the most popular binding option for training manuals. The metal ring on the manual keeps the manual held together tightly. It’s great for longevity and it will also lay flat on a desk. If the manual is to be written inside a matt paper is preferable, although a silk stock will work with a biro. Tabs can be added at production stage for easy access to chapters. Wire-binding is cost effective and usually an acetate front cover and card back is added to the manuals to make them more hard wearing.   Pros: Hard Wearing Lays flat on a desk Easy to turn pages Tabs can be [...]
