Is everything completed in-house?

There could be some instances where you may take a tour of the print company and be impressed and they’ve given a fantastic first impression and you can’t wait to get started.
But, further down the line, you realise the quality of the work isn’t quite up to the standard you thought it would be. This could be because they’ve outsourced your project to a smaller company to cope with their workload.

At Melamaster, we look after your from A to Z. Our technical skills are utilised in building UK based production servicing numerous bespoke customers worldwide.

Why bespoke printing with Melamaster is important

A lot needs to be taken into account when it comes to your bespoke printing, especially if it’s displaying your work or branding. At Melamaster, we’ve decided to take it upon ourselves to dive a little deeper into why and how your bespoke printed products need to be shown off on in the highest quality possible so that it can separate you from the competition and make you stand out from other products you can find in the store.

Numerous aspects need to be considered but one of the most important to focus on is the bespoke printing aspect, which can determine whether the end result sees your product come off as high quality or not. Here’s why bespoke printing with Melamaster is important for selling your bespoke items.

The quality of printing

The success of your company or individual sales of your bespoke printed items comes down to whether the marketing is effective or not. This doesn’t have to involve some intricate strategies, yet a consideration for the basics. Brilliant designs and branding can only carry you so far. You could have the best and most beautiful designs and logos, but if they’re printed on poor-quality stock, you may as well not bother. Bespoke printing on our melamine products can covert your designs into sales, especially if you’re an aspiring artist. You need something truly special and unique to set you apart from your competitors and truly reflect your unique offering … and regular and outdated printed simply just won’t do.

What is bespoke printing

To truly show off your products, designs, branding and logos, giving the materials a premium feel that can’t be replicated is something you should do. By offering a fully bespoke printing service, you can benefit from techniques that fit you and your needs. The best way to understand what bespoke printing truly is by working with a company like Melamaster. You don’t have to compromise on your ideas because of a printers limitations. Instead, you can work with us closely and pass on ideas and work together to come up with the most effective solution for your designs and ideas.
It’s tailored to you, everything you want and need to showcase your high-end products, bespoke printing will deliver the results.

Why does bespoke printing with Melamaster work?

With technology continuing to advance, the common assumption is that bespoke printing isn’t important as the internet is taking over. That’s not necessarily true, as print is all around us and high-end companies can massively benefit from print, compared to online advertisements on social media, for example.
The fact is, the digitally driven world may be rapidly advancing with newer technologies and ways to advertise, but this technique offers a lot more when it comes to promoting your products with fewer limitations, making it a more effective method of advertising your products. One thing consumers always fail to appreciate is a tangible product. Mirror that with a bespoke and unique design, you have a product that isn’t broad-brushed to millions of people at the same time.


Reach the right people

We’d be silly if we were to say that the internet doesn’t reach wider audiences, but not all of them can be potential customers. However, with bespoke printing with Melamaster, you can ensure that you are only targeting audiences that want to get a hold of what you have to offer. We previously discussed how you should sell your bespoke products and now we’re telling you why. Taking the bespoke route means you can show off your premium designs and branding whilst offering a tangible product to really make an impression. These are all features and aspects that can’t be replicated by a social media campaign that has gone viral.

No limitations

When it comes to bespoke printing, there are fewer limitations with these techniques. Digital adverts can have certain design limitations and are most likely readily available for you and your competitors. At Melamaster, your input and creativity can be conveyed to the bespoke printing method. This is because it’s all customised and tailored to your needs which the competition won’t be able to copy as customers will instantly know that the design or colours you included, for example, are associated with your design or company.


Getting hands-on with plenty of options

The best thing about a bespoke printed melamine product at Melamaster is that you get to be hands-on in the process. You don’t have to sit back and hope for the best when printing materials are involved. You also have plenty of options to choose from. We have dinnerware, melamine placemats and coasters to choose from, plus much more. This is the most effective way of promoting your products, as it’s tailored to you and can’t be replicated. You’ll be saving time and money because of the fast turnaround times when using Melamaster and your materials are consistently printed perfectly, as opposed to printing in batches where blemishes can appear, giving it a more professional finish to further enhance your products and not feeling the effects of what’s on offer in the digital world.
