Why Choose a Printing Service Bureau?Brett Wilkerson
Companies are increasingly outsourcing everything from printing barcode labels to creating serialized RFID labels. Whether you need serialized RFID labels for unique item level identification or synthetic bin, rack or sign labels to identify locations; MSM can accommodate.
There are several reasons it makes sense to choose a service bureau:
- A service bureau will save time: Selecting a service bureau can provide services for printing tags, labels and a wide variety of other items when a company doesn’t have the time to do it themselves.
- A service bureau saves money: Costs for purchasing in-house printing equipment is expensive and requires servicing, training and takes up a lot of time and floor space.
- A service bureau can provide limited amounts: If a business only needs small quantities printed it makes sense to hire an outside source because custom materials are not normally available or carry a very large minimum.
- A service bureau can simplify the process: Not only does printing with an off-site service save time and money, but it frees employees to focus on crucial aspects of the business.
- A service bureau can help with a new solution: A business may want to try out a new barcode or RFID solution before putting in the resources to invest in its own equipment.
