Is online the way to go?

If you’re anything like us, the first place you turn to when looking for something new is Google. There’s no denying the internet provides a massive amount of information, and sometimes it does seem the quickest, easiest and even cheapest way to go. But online is not always the best option – especially when it comes to print.

It’s very easy to sit at your computer, your tablet or your smartphone and ask a few questions. Need ideas? Google. Is it possible to do what I want? Google.  Does this product exist? Google.  Are there any better ideas out there? You take our point. But sometimes picking up the phone and calling an expert can save you time, effort, and even money. (Honestly!)

It’s no surprise to learn that you have to be careful when online.  We all know the horror stories of companies capturing your data, of online fraud and so on. But sometimes even perfectly legitimate online stores are not necessarily as much of a bargain as they first appear.  If something seems too good to be true, chances are it is – after all, there really is no such thing as “free” in this world.

We’ve all been in that situation though, where we’re lured in by the promise of a great price, which never seems to be quite such a bargain by the time we get to the checkout. Faster delivery, double sided print, premium quality – it all adds up, and it’s rarely quite so appealing by the end!

At Victoire we are nothing but honest and upfront.  We will give you ideas, we will discuss alternative options with you, and we will quote you the exact price that you have to pay for the finished product you require.

At Victoire, we do NOT:
–    Sell your data
–    Charge for premium rate phone calls to talk to us
–    Quote prices which yo-yo so you never know what you’re actually paying

Instead, at Victoire we DO:
–    Protect your data
–    Give consistent, all-inclusive prices
–    Print specific Pantone references so you know exactly what you’re getting
–    Provide materials and instructions in plain English so it’s all easy to understand
–    Pay UK taxes
–    Protect the environment through genuine ethics and principles
–    Care enormously about our customers and offer unbeatable service at all times

To illustrate the point, we were recently contacted by a customer who had looked online for new letterheads.  Our quote was £86, finished, packaged and delivered.  The finished price they paid from a well known online retailer was £109.  Those hidden costs can really catch you out!

So don’t assume online is always best, fastest, or cheapest. Shop around with real businesses, speak to real people who care about your printing with exactly the same passion that you do (or maybe even more!).

Here at Victoire we offer a full range of commercial print services for businesses, and for the individual too.  We value each and every one of our customers.  No job is too small or too large, no question asked is too much trouble for us to answer.  We offer a full service from design to delivery, and all our staff are skilled in their field, so you know that you are getting a professional service from start to finish.

Want some ideas?  Don’t understand print?  Don’t know what colours work best together?  Then ask us.  We love getting involved in projects, and love a new challenge!

We are ISO9001 Quality Assurance registered, and as such take our responsibilities very seriously.  We want you to have the product you asked for, first time, on time, every time.

We are also committed to reducing our carbon footprint.  We are supporters of The Woodland Trust, which means that we pay a premium for every tonne of paper we buy, which then goes in to the re-planting of forests, in the UK.  We’re passionate about the environment, and have very strong views about how to protect our woodlands.

So why not key “Victoire Press” into your google search next time and come to the professionals that have the drive, passion and desire to achieve the best for you!
