The SQL Business Model

The SQL Business Model

We create the blueprint for your project; develop specs, recommend ways to produce your job efficiently, obtain estimates from qualified printers and manage your press runs. We work closely with your design staff or we handle the design portion of the project for you. At the end we manage mailing, fulfillment and distribution.

Industry knowledge and attention to detail are at the core of our strength.

Our projects include catalogs, corporate ID packages, magazines, brochures, and marketing collateral. We also excel in direct mail programs, packaging, point of purchase signage and hard/soft cover books and more. See the list of typical products we supply.
We also offer extensive background in fulfillment and can design and host your website with all of the online tools to effectively manage your transactions. Then we provide the warehousing, pick and pack, kitting, mailing and print on demand features to support your program.

The competitive pricing we offer is the result of knowledge of the equipment and automation possibilities that will most effectively produce your print work. If it were as simple as going to the yellow pages anyone could manage printing but there are specific types of niche equipment that change from job to job. We like to say that printing is not a one size fits all business. The path we take adapts to each new project.

Printers enjoy working with us for the same reason our clients do. Our industry knowledge and detailed communication helps them become more effective partners. They value the business we bring and our clients benefit by seeing greatly reduced lead times, excellent prices and the time saved can be used toward their firm's productivity.

Product quality is the main objective at SQL Direct. This means keeping the client's brand consistent across many mediums. High quality is always a given, not negotiable.
