Distributors & Brokers
PlateCrafters specializes in working with Distributors and Print Brokers. The needs of a company that resells printed products are vastly different than those of a company that prints in house. We are uniquely set up to facilitate the printing and communication process; from the customer’s order through the printer’s finished product. Distributors can feel secure knowing that their order is in good hands and that plates will be correctly delivered on time to the printer.
We provide print distributors with a level of service that a printer can not provide. We can offer more timely proofs as well as a better understanding of artwork and files, plus we are not limited by a single printer’s capabilities. Our customers that are distributors use us much like they would an in house art department. We can deal directly with customers and make sure that artwork is flexo ready and will look they way they expect on press.
PlateCrafters has experience with nearly every major printer in the US. This means a full understanding of their needs and specifications, as well as the ability to deal directly with them on your behalf. Many printers require plates in hand before even scheduling a print run, however we have agreements with a variety of printers that once we receive an order for plates, they can put the job on their schedule. This helps to increase your turn around and improve your relationship with your printer. In addition the good relationship we have built with many printers over the years allows us to ask for some favors on your behalf when the need arises.
Ordering your plates from PlateCrafters will provide you with greater control of your orders, improved service for your customers and an increased profit margin on every job. Printers have to buy or make their plates as well, and they have no choice but to mark them up and make a profit. With PlateCrafters, you get to keep that extra profit and know that you always have full ownership of your files and increased confidentiality. Unlike with a printer, there is no motivation for your end customers to order direct from us.
