Challenges when shipping prints globally

Shipping distances.

Transportation is the second worst polluting industry, after energy, representing 28% of all carbon emission. Companies can heavily reduce shipping distances by printing locally.

Custom issues and lead time.

When companies ship prints across boarders they often experience issues with customs, both in terms of costs and stalled deliveries. This results in frustration and problems when prints are delayed for trade shows and conferences.

Outdated materials.

Due to lead time and problems with shipping, companies often aim to reduce how often they ship new materials. This inevitably results in outdated marketing collateral being used, or even worse, not having marketing materials at all.

Sustainable printing.

Using uncontrolled print houses in developing countries comes with a risk of breaking international labor laws.

Quality guarantee.

The core if what Gelato delivers is quality. Printing consists of chemical processes and color consistency can never be achieved 100%, even when printing at the same print house and same print machines. By printing on the same type of print machines and paper types we are able to close the gap as much as possible. Read more about Gelato's quality guarantee here.

Because quality control is what we’re all about, we offer a 100% quality guarantee. We carefully review printers looking to join our network and approve less than 20% of applications. When it comes to the printing itself, multiple factors influence the color, consistency and final result: machine type, machine setting, paper types, humidity in the room, when the machine was last cleaned, just to mention a few examples. Printing is a chemical process, and you can never achieve 100% consistency, but by printing on the same print machines, the same paper types and by implementing strict working processes at the print houses, we are able to get as close to perfect as possible.
