Sequal Consulting provides print management services for our clients. Being your print manager means we use our relationships with printers and wholesalers to ensure you get the best price, quality, and service possible for all of your printed materials.
Our staff have years of experience in graphic design and the print industry. Working with us means we handle all the details and see your job through from start to finish so that you can get back to focusing on your regular work.
Scope of Services
Sequal Consulting is committed to helping organizations get the materials and services they need. We can handle any size and format of job, including:
· Small and large run business cards
· Campaign and program literature like postcards, door hangers, and yard signs
· Business essentials like brochures, sell sheets, and promotional items
· Large format printing
· Banners, table covers, and more
We have an in-house designer with 10 years of design experience, and regularly work with other freelance designers. If you already have a designer, great! We’ll work collaboratively to make sure your artwork is press-ready.
When you’re deciding on printing, you probably know whether you want thick paper or thin paper, but a printer will want to know if you want 100# cover and 80# text. We help you decide on paper weights, textures, colors, and finishing options so that your piece has the exact look and feel you want.
Sourcing and Pricing
Once your design is ready to go, we take care of the rest. Every job is competitively bid among our network of more than a dozen suppliers so that we can stay within your budget and deadline. Do you have special sourcing considerations? Our network of suppliers includes union printers, women and minority-owned businesses, and printers that use sustainably produced papers and inks.
Is there an upfront fee for this service?
There is NO upfront fee for this service. The only service listed above that we charge separately for is graphic design. Everything else is included in the price of your print job.
Will my print jobs cost more?
Our prices will be comparable, or in many cases lower, than what you’re paying now, and you still get all the additional benefits of working with an experienced print manager. Our prices are competitive because we work with many wholesale printers that don’t sell directly to the public.
Is the final product inferior?
The vendors with whom we work have all been screened for top quality materials. We make sure their product quality is superior 100% of the time. We’re also happy to show you samples of previous jobs we’ve done so you can see the quality for yourself.
How does this process work?
Your organization submits a printing project to us with specifications (description, color, size, quantity) and we take care of the rest. We find the best price and work directly with the printer, answering all of their questions so that you’re able to focus on your organization’s more pressing issues.
How long will it take for my printed materials to be ready?
Our specialty is working to meet or beat your deadline. We offer both expedited and standard turnaround times. Our standard turnaround time is 5-7 business days, but faster turnaround times may be possible depending on the details of your job. We deliver immediately upon product completion within Pittsburgh, and offer shipping to offices outside of the city.
Will I receive a proof of my printed material?
One of the purposes of our print management services is to remove all the hassle of dealing with the proof process with print vendors. However, if requested, we are able to provide printed proofs.
