Customers often find themselves wondering why screen printers don't offer samples. This blog post will delve into the primary factor behind this decision - the significant impact of cost and time constraints.
- Cost and Time Considerations:
Screen printing requires the creation of custom screens for each color in the design. This process is not only time-consuming but also incurs substantial material and labor expenses. For a single sample, the costs involved might outweigh the benefits, particularly when considering that the same resources could be used for larger production runs.
- Prioritizing Bulk Orders:
Screen printers focus on maximizing efficiency and profitability. By concentrating on bulk orders, they can take advantage of economies of scale, reducing the overall cost per item. Consequently, allocating time and resources to individual samples becomes impractical, as it hinders their ability to handle larger, more profitable projects.
At Sage Screen Printing Studio, we provide detailed digital mock-ups for customer approval, eliminating the need for physical samples. Our iterative design process ensures satisfaction before production, offering a cost-effective and time-efficient solution for our valued clients.
