What is a print broker? - A print broker is someone who resells printing services to his or her own clients using a printing company that accommodates the need for reseller privacy. A graphic designer may wish to make a profit on printing from their clients after they have designed their artwork for a brochure, business card or anything that requires printing. Instead of sending their client to a print company with the risk of possibly losing that client to a 3rd party designer or print service, a print broker uses a services like our to secure his or hers both future design and print business. Printing companies accommodate brokers for blind shipping and/or drop shipping which is what keeps your print source private from your client.
What is blind shipping? - Blind shipping is something print services do for clients who resell print materials. Blind shipping keeps all our business logos or company info (like our shipping address) off packages or products. This way, the client a designer may be reselling to will never know we are your provider or source of print. On packages, it will instead list the brokers business or personal name and address (your business name and address). It keeps us out of the business end and your client will never know what you pay for print nor where you get it from. Keeping this a secret allows you to grow your print and design business and ensure not one client ever leaves you for the source company.
What is drop shipping? - Drop shipping is the ability to have your package shipped directly to your client without you ever having to touch, carry or delivery it on your own. Who wants to wait in lines and carry heavy boxes, right? Let us do it all for you. This helps you run your core business without being an employee in your own company or service, thus allowing you to focus on the more important parts of your design and print business, which is to gain more clients. When we drop ship blindly for you, your client will only see you as the sender of all packages so when it comes time to reorder, they know to only contact you.
Broker Pricing - Broker pricing is available to clients who are approved by us as someone in the business of advertising, design or print. As a broker, you can enjoy up to 70% off on business cards, 35% off brochures and 35% off postcards. Enough room for you to charge your profit margins, all while being competitive with other services at the retail level. When you are approved by us as a broker, your pricing will change once you sign into your account. It's that easy! For example, the public might see $100 for a set of business cards but once you sign into your brocker account, pricing at checkout for you may be just $30 instead, allowing you to charge $70 more in profit. To keep your broker account active, you must process at least 5 order per month. If no orders are processed in a 4 week period, your account as a broker status will revert back to retail.

Income in Dollars You Can Expect - The amount of income you bring in truly is up to you and how little or how hard you wish to work. The income our brokers earn is anywhere from $53,000 to $750,000 USD per year. The average time it takes them to earn $53,000 is typically a year and a half (if starting from zero and new to print brokering) and after that they gain so many repeat clients that profits amplify. One of your clients can be worth $6,000 in 1 year or 3 years time when they repeat and there is a very high repeat rate in the print industry. The average client purchases print services 4-8 imes per year. Established businesses repeat over 40 times per year.
The average cost our brokers spend to gain a client is $50-$100 but the high profits per order offset that cost. Do not be intimidated by that cost. Sometimes, giving a client free business cards or a set of brochures will impress your dedication and quality of prints which will then earn you a client who is not willing to switch print providers. For example, if you wish to do marketing via social media, Google adwords or mail marketing, expect the cost of each client that returns to make a purchase from you to be around $50-$100. For every $1,000 to spend on marketing you will earn 5-10 clients which will be valued at well over $10,000 in income for the year, and even more if you design for them as well.
The average 50 to 100 clients you gain are sure to bring you $50,000 in profit (not sales as sales can be higher) as a minimum. This is all from average stats we see. Approximately 63% of our current brokers are earning $74,000 income per year. All from the convenience of their own home and office.
