Improve your organization’s return on its print investment


One of the largest spend categories in many organizations is printed materials and services. But it’s also the least talked about. With PrintStack, you'll enhance visibility into your print supply chain and be able to reduce hidden costs and improve efficiency.

Why print management matters to your business


Businesses can spend millions of dollars on producing, managing and distributing print. But that expense often goes unnoticed because print is so embedded into every function of your organization. This lack of visibility creates problems, adding unnecessary complexity in everyday transactions. It can compromise your power to negotiate price due to a lack of intelligence around your current spend.


Printed materials and services often cost more than we realize

1:7

For every dollar spent on
printing, nearly $7 is spent on
ancillary activities and the cost
of obsolescence.

Frequently asked questions

Q. How can I generate hard cost savings?
A. PrintStack can help your organization drive efficiency by streamlining its print procurement process, thereby reducing your investment in printed materials. We can help you reduce or reallocate labor associated with print and employ technology to generate measurable year-over-year savings. We can also increase your marketing efficiency and boost the amount of revenue per marketing FTE.

Q. How can I generate soft cost savings?
A. PrintStack can greatly reduce the amount of time and energy your organization spends on managing print. From better processes and forecasting that lower obsolescence, to avoiding capital investment in facilities and equipment, our PrintStack engineers are laser-focused on driving out both hard- and soft-costs.

Q. How do I calculate the ROI on my print spend?
A. It is important to look at your total cost of ownership. For example, do you throw away a lot of copies every time there is a version change? If you printed 5,000 copies for $2,500 you may think your cost is 50¢ per piece. But if you threw away 4,000 copies because a business change made them obsolete, your real cost is $2.50 each ($2,500 divided by 1,000 copies used). This doesn’t even begin to consider the amount you spend on inventory management, ordering, supplier freight and shipping to end-users.
Q. How do I find weak spots in my print supply chain?
A. The PrintStack Assessment will look at all aspects of how you specify, produce, manage and distribute print. Through this in-depth process, our PrintStack engineers typically find numerous ways to enhance an organization’s staffing model, process and technology.

Q. What kind of measurable results could I achieve from managing print better?
A. Improving your print management delivers myriad benefits, including reduced costs, lower overhead expenses, improved cash flow, capital avoidance and increased staff productivity. Taylor can share with you what other clients have achieved by adopting the PrintStack model. You’ll see how they saved time to spend on core activities to advance their business goals.
