Color Printing Online Made Easy

It is hard to imagine any industry that can function without the services of color printing online. Whether it is a restaurant, automobile company, computer peripherals, or electronics store, all of them require color prints to make their products easily available to customers.

These days, there are certain companies which provide color printing online services by acting as print coordination companies, whereby they get in touch with suitable print vendors in the world. As per a client’s requirement, each of these companies places a bid with the coordinator, and then the client can select accordingly. Thereby, this process helps to pick a company on the basis of both quality and price.

Offers are always available

In most cases, print companies are likely to provide attractive offers to their clients through the coordinator. This is truly the beauty of how online printing has turned the tide around in this field. By choosing one of the available offers, clients will always get maximum bang for buck. What’s more, clients do not have to pay for the services being offered by the print coordinator.

Good customer service

Today’s print companies have excellent customer service support, enabling them to deliver highly personalized services to every client. Though a customer IVR (Interactive Voice Response) may seem difficult at first, one gets the hang of it by listening carefully. The primary job of a customer service department is follow-ups, which they always handle with aplomb when with a reputed company.

Top benefits of color printing

Over time, studies have shown that color printing has displayed the following benefits:

  1. It makes every message more memorable by up to 39%
  2. It enhances readership of direct mail by a whopping 55%
  3. Attention span and recall are automatically increased by 82%
  4. Brand recognition also goes up by 80%
  5. It gives a thoroughly professional appearance


Every individual requires more color in his or her life, and no company should be any different. However, owning color printers and maintaining them can become quite a hassle over time. This is the reason why many businesses find it profitable to outsource these requirements.

Choose the type and size of paper

One of the main advantages of getting prints online is that a massive amount of customization is possible. It is possible to choose from different sizes and types of paper. Irrespective of where in the world such companies are located, they can arrange deliveries for any company in the stipulated time.

Here is a look at the different types of paper:

  1. Glossy- Such papers have a shiny look and make text or photos appear lively. Captions and geometric designs can be showcased using these.
  2. Matte- It is a great choice of paper for black and white prints, giving a professional touch to all photo prints. Since they are anti glare, they look very elegant and classy.
  3. Metallic- The name comes from images or text being printed on metallic paper. Metallic papers are very popular among commercial photographers.

Lustre- Images here are printed on Lustre photo paper, delivering highly saturated prints
