We, at E-C Marketing Consulting (ECMC) is committed to assist foreign SMEs to explore business opportunities in China. We are also among the first of Chinese companies to provide sourcing services in printing to foreign markets, after we have successfully expanded into DTP (Desktop Publishing) service. Now we are ready to share this lucrative market with our valued partners and clients.
Let me highlight the related issues such as the quality, price, delivery and payment.
1. Printing industry in China
E-C has closely monitored the development of the printing industry for over one year and just concluded a study in this market. We found that the printing quality in China has come up to the world standards due to large investments in the industry, improved technology and government support. Paper quality has also improved as at least 10 listed companies are supplying the top-end market. Imports for special types of paper are also growing by 60%. Price-wise (including sea freight) , Chinese cost is at least 30% cheaper than that in East Europe, or 50% cheaper than in West Europe or North America.
2. E-Cs capability and value
E-C has signed strategic partnership with 3 among the best of printers in China as their marketing agent. They value our marketing abilities and our client base. They generally lack foreign language staff to take care of foreign orders. All E-C staff, however, can use a foreign language as their working language. Also, E-C's DTP Department has already 11 staff and can do typesetting, coordinate with the printer as to art design and produce positives/ transparencies.
3. About the printers
All the printers have ISO9001/ISO14001 certificates. The equipments from prepress to post-press are famous brands from all over the world. They have earned many awards in the world. They can take large orders and actually their machines works 24 hours all year round. They can print all kinds of books, novels, childrens art book/handwork book, schoolbooks, menus, photo albums, posters, brochures, leaflets, magazines. Samples can be provided via DHL/EMS.
4. How we do
E-C keeps in touch with the client to take orders and coordinate delivery. The client signs a tri-party contract with E-C and the Printer (or the export agent)
Price is competitive only if the delivery is made by sea freight.
All printers request the following terms of payment:
50% down payment upon receipt of hard copy contract.
The remaining 50% will be paid after confirmation of advanced copy by the client and before shipment.
