Tips to Choosing Right Printing Company
As a graphic designer you will need to choose a good printing company

A MARKETING SPECIALIST'S VIEW
Let’s assume you have all the answers. You know what you need designed.
You know how you want it designed and you know who your target customer is.
You have all the images and verbiage written and all you need is for someone to
lay it out so it can be printed. If you are at this stage then all you need is a designer.
Conversely, if you know what you want to sell but need advice on ways to sell it,
then you will need to consider a marketing specialist.
