SQL Direct is an independent print management firm that produces the highest level of printed material with an efficiency that most clients (and printers) cannot produce for themselves. Our knowledge of print industry technology allows us to precisely source your project, including any complex subcomponents and finishing details. We save you time and excessive vendor price markups for outside services. 

We can work directly with your design group or provide you with our own design resources. All processes from start to finish are handled by us including estimates, on-press approvals, inspecting finishing processes, and managing mailing dates and critical distribution. 

We meet deadlines, budgets, report back regularly to our clients and maintain the consistency of your brand with ultra quality products.

Because we award substantial amounts of work to key print/mail partners, we have a greater ability to leverage timelines and costs to keep our client's project on schedule and on budget.

Case Study

  • Flooring America needed SQL Direct to produce 400 sets of 204 color pallet cards as a resource for their design locations. Each card had a pallet of four colors that help clients focus on core design colors for their living space. SQL was asked to handle prepress and production and come up with a packaging method.

    The cards were first proofed as Pantone screen combinations. After the first round of proofs we knew that small tweaks would need to be made in 1 to 3 % ranges in each of the colors to make them more accurate to the color pallets provided by Flooring America. After a few rounds of proofs the last step was to work closely with the printer to set up an actual press run to compare to the proofs and originals. At this point only about 10% of the color subjects required further very minor color correction. The final press run went perfectly as planned.

    The next step was to produce a custom litho wrap box and lid to showcase the cards. We shipped the cards collated inside the box
