Once you understand how your printing materials are going to change, you should meet with your current or a new printing service. If you are happy with your current service, it is better not to switch printing services unless the current printers cannot meet your new requirements. You should begin making arrangements for business printing a month or two prior to your move-in date, depending on the size of the order.

Another tip for ordering your business cards and printed material is to order them to be shipped to your new offices a day or two before your move-in date. This will save you an extra box or two to transport, and save you time and money with the movers.

The key to revamping your printed materials, whether it’s just updated business cards or a two-page brochure is to give yourself plenty of time to plan ahead. If you can enhance these materials or even completely re-brand your business, you will be able to attract a lot more clients and in turn make your business hugely profitable. And isn’t that the entire point of an office move in the first place?
