Out of the Box

Choosing a Skilled Broker

The two main advantages of seeking a print and packaging broker are experience and versatility. Many times, as a project evolves through the design process, the choice of materials, structure or graphics changes. Often, if working with a single manufacturer, the project can "outgrow" the manufacturer's expertise or equipment capabilities. An experienced broker can adapt with the evolution of the project and simply access the manufacturer that best suits the project. Longstanding relationships with multiple manufacturers give the broker strength and influence in getting the job done at the right price and within the required timeframe.

Using a broker instead of a manufacturer means you are not tied to one specific manufacturing plant or specific methods of production.

As an experienced independent thinker, a broker will make the customer's needs the priority, and if necessary, provide solutions from a combination of sources to meet those needs. The same solutions are often harder to achieve from a single manufacturer with limited capabilities. Using a broker instead of a manufacturer means you are not tied to one specific manufacturing plant or specific methods of production. Brokers or print management services companies (a friendlier term) have a distinct advantage in that way can rely on a network of suppliers to fit the application, and not the other way around.

"From the perspective of someone who has sold under both scenarios, I would say that as a broker I wasn't limited by certain equipment my employer was trying to keep busy. I could focus more on what the customer actually wanted and needed and work with several manufacturers to achieve the desired results. When working directly for the manufacturer, there was more of a tendency to meet certain criteria in terms of the kinds of business we wanted to run through our plant. As a broker, I tended to work with customers who needed more assistance with their whole packaging program and who tend to want someone who was willing to take on some functions that larger companies would internalize," Bob McBride explains.

"When working for the manufacturer, I found that my employer would tend to dictate the amount of time I was allowed to spend providing those kinds of services - not all were overly restrictive in that regard, but some were. As a broker I felt more like I provided a service to customers, whereas working for the manufacturer the emphasis was more on moving as much product as possible. My specific market was small to medium size users. Back when I was brokering I found that wandering too far out of that market put me at a competitive disadvantage, as pricing became more of a priority. That seems to be changing a bit in some regards, as more offshore sources become available to brokers," adds McBride.
