More about the finishing process
The finishing of banners requires bench work and is also the greater part of the price of the finished product. Activities include sewing the sides and bottoms with lead strings for weight and putting eyelets or grippers in the corners. For banners, which are many times the size of the capacity of the digital printer, there is welding or sewing to make the finished product. Therefore, if the labor force is skilled and diligent the products are durable, and if not – the products can be ruined in wind and weather.
PrintVis has ways of calculating these large formats – even if the size is larger than the machine. As a results, the user input is often types of eyelets or roll-ups, and the system will automatically find the price based on templates and formula for this part of the industry. Therefore, the trade-off between diligence and price is a key issue, as well as managing delivery milestones with a production involving so much hands-on work.
As order quantities are often small, it is vital that the ordering process can be quick and easy. With the correct setup, order time can be reduced dramatically. In addition, with steady customers the order process goes preferably through a customer-specific web interface – using their own item numbers and ordering a number of different items simultaneously. Bulk ordering of larger quantities with many different recipients of items is also one of the many areas for which PrintVis is able to support and provide management.
