Despite the dominance of digital, professional printing remains a business staple. Meet your print requirements with The UPS Store.
Digital materials are quickly becoming the standard for many businesses, but professional printing is far from obsolete. Whether it's business cards and brochures or postcards and presentations, companies still rely on high-quality printed materials to acquire new business leads and close sales.
"Customers can push print orders out to any of the 4,500 The UPS Store locations for pickup," says Mark Denney. "On average, there's a The UPS Store location within 10 miles of 84 percent of the U.S. population."
However, as critical as traditional business printing may continue to be, the time-consuming, costly caveats that come with it (inconvenient locations, lengthy processing times) haven't changed much from the way they were a few decades ago – especially when it comes to last-minute, on-the-road print jobs.
But as Mark Denney, vice president of corporate print sales at The UPS Store®, explains, UPS customers that need to print materials in-store or on the road – and quickly – have options, including the UPS Store Online Print site.
"Customers can push print orders out to any of the 4,500 The UPS Store locations for pickup," says Denney. "On average, there's a The UPS Store location within 10 miles of 84 percent of the U.S. population."
Using the system's document builder, customers can upload multi-page documents and configure them for production – all from a personal computer or device. After specifying the job parameters and order quantity for each location, the request is then routed to the nearest The UPS Store location. Once printed, recipients receive an email notifying them that the order is available for pickup.
Although transacting online and picking up in-store isn't entirely new, it's a concept that has been gaining traction among major businesses in recent years, including major retailers such as Macy's and Bloomingdales. Just as those companies allows customers to specify their purchase and a pickup time instantly, The UPS Store Online Print site gives customers the freedom to customize, change and schedule print jobs when it's most convenient for them.
In addition to providing thousands of design templates, the site can also be used as a secure locker to house a company's branded materials and documents for easy, round-the-clock access and on-demand production. The UPS Store works with each company to create a co-branded site that their users can access from any location. This is an ideal tool for a business with multiple users and needs distribution in multiple areas.
As Denney points out, "By offering this print-on-demand service, our corporate customers are leveraging The UPS Store footprint with the flexibility of an online site to produce customized print jobs when and where they need them.."
