  • Printed Material Saving Ideas for School Stationery

    Bright Idea 1Group Manufacture Planning the reordering of stationery

    can save up to 25% on your print costs. Purchasing items

    with common inks or paper grades at the same time allows

    printers to batch manufacture items and reduce press set up

    costs. Order envelopes, with compliment slips and letterheads

    at the same time.

    Bright Idea 2Free Storage Longer Runs SPH are now providing free storage for school stationery allowing

    you to manufacture a years supply and we will deliver it when required. Longer print runs equate

    to savings between 10% and 30%.

    Bright Idea 3Review Paper Selection Ask to see more cost effective paper options that still look good but may

    reduce the cost of your printing. Paper constitutes up to 35% of the total print cost, so a reduction

    in papercosts positively impacts your bottom line.

    Marketing Material more impact for less dollars

    Marketing material represents the brand and values of your school so it must maintain a high

    level of quality and feel. Quality can be achieved in conjunction with cost reduction by adopting a

    few simple policies.

    Bright Idea 4Ask for 2 quotes on all jobs, one of which is a lower cost paper option to the one nominated by the

    designer. Many times you can not tell the difference but the savings are signifi cant.

    Bright Idea 5Utilise design studios within print companies if you have existing corporate specifi cations and a

    good image library, printers such as SPH have excellent designers who can provide quality creative

    designs at half the cost of external agencies.

    Bright Idea 6Review paper size, binding styles and fi nishing options. These components are expensive and there

    are always quality, lower cost options.

    Direct MailMaintaining contact with parents and

    prospective families is vital in growing

    student numbers, more so during an

    economic downturn. There are several

    cost effective strategies that can assist

    you in making your mailing go further.

    Bright Idea 7Reducing Postage Charges

    We work with Auspost to allow

    us to gain discounts on behalf

    of our clients.

    Bright Idea 8Reducing mail processing costs

    We find the best way to process jobs

    in order to meet clients turnarounds

    at a reasonable price.

    Bright Idea 9 Plastic Wrap Options

    Cheaper than envelope processing

    and weather resistant.

    If you are processing mailers internally, you

    will not be achieving the postage discounts

    available from DPID lodgment.Natalie Dela Cruz, Absolute Mail.

    Ideas to cut the cost of print and mail It has been deeply rewarding to be in partnership with Standard Publishing in the twin tasks of reducing print costs and environmental impact.Dr. Tim HawkesHeadmasterThe Kings School

    Standard Publishing assisted PLC Sydney in changing all of our print needs to a carbon neutral range of products whilst keeping our costs to a minimum.Keely MaxwellPublications OfficerPLC Sydney

    Standard Publishing House has a relationship with several Schools within the Sydney Anglican Schools Corporation and is currently conducting a Print Management Audit with some of those Schools with the intention of increasing effi ciency and reducing costs.Rodney Cosier Financial ControllerSydney Anglican Schools Corporation

    One of the best decisions we ever made was to establish a relationship with SPH, because there is no doubt that having a good printer is an essential factor in the way a school presents itself to the community.

    However, in our relationship with SPH that began more than twenty years ago, we have gained much more than good product. The SPH team have been creative advisers who have helped us build a most pleasing suite of college literature. They have been helpful, welcoming, supportive and patient.Dr. Liz LambDirector of Learning and TeachingMarist Sisters College
