Print Consultancy

The definitions of the word ‘consultancy’ include:-

“A professional practice that provides expert advice within a particular field”

“The provision of expert knowledge to a third party – consulting is most often used when a company needs an outside, expert opinion regarding a business decision.”

You are the expert in your business sector but cannot be expected to know e.g.

  • How to ensure you are gaining the very best results from your printing

  • How to ensure ideas for developing your business convert into a cost-effective results-driven project

  • How to integrate quality print and promotions solutions into other marketing and communications activity

  • How to create a brief and buy print effectively

You now have access to the team of consultants at Gemini Print. They are friendly and experienced, welcoming the opportunity to guide and advise you how to achieve a successful ‘partnership’ approach.  You gain the extra confidence of dealing directly with the professional print manufacturer who consistently invests in the right plant, skills and client services to maintain and enhance +40 years award-winning track record.

No hiding behind online-only estimating or purchasing, and no insistence that you ‘come to us’ – the Gemini Print team can spend time with you and your team to help you at every stage – from creating the strategy to ideas to plans to project success.  Contact Suzanne Heaven, Marketing Director or Paul Crimmen, Development Director, to request a meeting.

You can ask the Gemini Print management to sign Non-Disclosure Agreements (NDA), so you can be 100% confident to discuss a competitive activity, new product or service launches, acquisition and take-over plans, company re-structures etc. – learning about your business results in relevant plans, estimates and agreements.

The key start point is ‘listening’ – listening to your goals and objectives.

In addition to broad-ranging printing knowledge, you can access Gemini Print team members who have specific business sector experience including:-
