Printing on plastic isn’t anything new, but it may be new to you. And it’s something you should seriously consider doing if you want to both save and make more money.

Save Money by Printing on Plastic

Paper, and even more durable cardstock, isn’t as robust as plastic. That means it’s much easier to destroy things printed on paper or cardstock, so you have to replace them more often. Even though printing on plastic costs you more money upfront, it could save you a lot in the long run if you are printing things you need to use often, use over a long period of time, or use or store in certain conditions where the printed materials could be exposed to the elements or come in contact with even a drop of moisture.

Plastics are pretty tough, and products printed on plastic won’t bend, tear, wrinkle, fold, or crush anywhere near as easily as paper or cardstock. They’re also more resistant to the elements–a splash of water won’t instantly destroy something printed on plastic. A tiny touch of water may even be welcome when wiping down things printed on plastic because you can clean off spills and spots, giving whatever it is more longevity. The plastic material is also fade-resistant, so colours will look brighter and newer longer.

Make More Money by Printing on Plastic

For certain printed products, printing on plastic could help you to make more money. Again, even though printing on plastic costs more than doing so on other stock types, the payoff could be well worth it with certain items. Anything unique will catch people’s attention, and if you are just one of many, having something different could make all the difference. Also, durability is a big factor here–if the printed item holds up, there’s a better chance it will be around down the road for people to take action on. Not all items need to be distinctive and durable, however, so while printing on plastic could be a nice touch, it may not directly lead to more money.
