In-House Printing vs. Outsourcing: Where Do You Stand?

in-house vs. outsourcing

Almost every company eventually has a conversation about in-house vs. outsourcing their essential services. In some cases, business growth makes a compelling case for outsourcing some services. For example, the cost of Managed Print Services is almost always recouped through benefits like a smaller print spend and improved productivity.

Should You Outsource Your Document Printing Needs?

Outsourcing printer management is an excellent way to reduce printing costs and get more productivity from your fleet. When it comes to day-to-day document printing, however, there are plenty of strong arguments for an in-house solution.

In-house printing means better control.

Without question, the most compelling reason for an in-house printing solution is better control. Here are five ways to look at the in-house vs. outsourcing debate.

  1. More control over product designs —When the color is off, it's off. An in-house solution means your team can keep a closer eye on color and brand control.
  2. More control over costs —An in-house solution means you won't pay extra for short runs, markups, and expedited orders.
  3. More control over quantities —Why pay for 500 when you only need 300 just to get a quantity discount? Print as many or as few as you need with an in-house printing solution.
  4. More control over sensitive content —With an in-house printing solution, you control who has access to your confidential and protected information.
  5. More control over your time —Does your outsourcing provider always have time for you? Stop waiting and print your documents on demand with an in-house multifunction, laser, wide-format, or production printing solution.
