Standees Printing Companies Online - 10 Things to Consider
There are few online printing companies including ours who offer standees. Standees are offered with and without printing. Indian customers often falls into trap of looking at just price without realizing what they are getting. We have listed below set of parameters which you should consider before jumping to the buying decision.
1. Material quality
In last few months there are few players who have entered the market with price disruption as their mind set. They are hell bent on finding ways to just keep the cost down. With that detrimental approach the sacrifice more often than not is in quality. They employ iron rod standee instead of aluminium which rust easily and is of poor material. Accompanying bag which is given complimentary with standee is also of sub standard quality. Most important thing is stand, a good quality stand will make it last longer.
2. Print quality
If material is not enough where saving can be made, next comes is the print quality. There is old phrase if you can't answer or explain then confuse. That seems to be the mindset with most printers. There are so many terms used for printing that often customer themselves are confused. It takes us good time to clear their doubt. Consider this flex, star flex, digital flex, superior flex, superior latex flex, eco flex these are terms used.
Flex is a flex, it is one material not 10 different names it is called by. Star flex is different from flex as Star is a Korean company whose product it is. So there is flex and star flex. We use star flex, we don't print your standees on normal flex or so called superior flex. Other media which we use is called digital vinyl, non tearable, latex vinyl, eco vinyl etc. They are again one and the same thing. We additional offer lamination which can be gloss or matt.
Often price advertised are without GST. You get excited when the price displayed is under Rs 1000/- but once you move to the cart there is 18% GST waiting for you as a surprise.
4. Delivery charges
Are they delivering it for free. As there are no free lunches in this World, so are there no free deliveries. Our price at Whizz Prints is inclusive of both GST & delivery charges. We ship all our products via Fedex which has very quick delivery across India. It is not sent via local couriers like Professional, Trackon, DTDC etc.
5. Designing Online for FREE
Are these online companies like us offer free designing portal where you can select from 1000s of design. You can add logos, images, pictures etc to customize your design. If they offer free design assistance then ask them how much time they will take to finish the designing assignment. Will they show you some designs before finalizing one. Will this designing assistance provided after placing the order or before. What if you don't like their work, will they refund your order amount. All these are legitimate questions you should ask all companies.
You can get feel of the company by just looking at their website. A new half cooked website with a copied template, not user friendly should more often than not keep you away. Even if the prices seems to be enticing our advice will be to tread with caution.
Few of our customers complaints that your packaging takes 5-15 minutes to just unpack. Though we would never want to over burden our customers, but after many hit and try this is the closest we have got so far. All our standees are bubble packed with extra layer of bubbles to prevent your product against all transit breakage. This is all inclusive there is no additional charges for it. This is also one of the reason why price can be slightly more.
8. After sales support
Do your online companies take guarantee of the product delivered. In case there is breakage during transit will they offer replacement or money refund. Or will they ask you to first ship the products back to them and after due verification process which may last for 7 days, action will be taken. We at Whizz Prints offer complete shipment guarantee, for any mistake you can either go with reprint or refund.
9. Replacement banners
Standees banner can be changed as many number of times you wish to. There are companies who offer only standees without provision of ordering replacement banners. At Whizz Prints you can order replacement banner in star flex or digital vinyl.
10. Work completed
Check for the work completed. If is available online you can check it there, if there are no photographs available online then ask these companies to whatsap or email the work done. Check if these are genuine or stolen pictures.
