How Kitting & Fulfillment Services Can Benefit Your Business

Sun Print Solutions’ kitting and fulfillment services can save your business time and money, whether yours is a small business or a national corporation. If you aren’t taking advantage of these value-added printing company services — or if you aren’t exactly sure what they even are — you might want to pull up a chair and lend an ear. Kitting & Fulfillment Services Can Benefit Your Business

What Is Kitting?

In the simplest possible terms, kitting refers to assembling multiple, diverse elements into a single package, or kit. Chances are you’re already doing something like this in your business. Two great examples of kitting are BarkBox and BirchBox. Both of these subscription services send their customers a monthly box of goodies (product samples, generally) assembled based on the customer’s profile and preferences. In your business, maybe you routinely send out catalogs with a personalized letter, your marketing manager’s business card and a product sample, promotional item or calendar. The process of gathering the items and assembling them in a specific way is the essence of kitting.

What Is Fulfillment?

So, you have your kit all assembled — now what? If you’re like most businesses, you put the kit in a container (envelope, box, etc.), affix a mailing label and go to the post office or call a delivery service. But what if you didn’t have to worry about any of that? When you trust Sun Print Solutions to handle all your fulfillment needs, you’ll never have to worry about that time-consuming (and expensive) process again. If it’s applicable for your business, you can even incorporate packaging into your kitting and fulfillment services. For example, if your company produces a product, we can print the packaging on-demand, package the product, assemble the kit for shipping and send it out when you receive an order. Could it be any simpler?

How Can Kitting & Fulfillment Benefit Your Business?

The most obvious benefit of outsourcing these services is the time and hassle you’ll save. This is especially true if you have a large list of recipients — trade show contacts, for example — that you need kits sent to. Now imagine not having to devote space to storing large quantities of catalogs, brochures, presentation folders and other items typically included in your kits. When you use your local printing company to handle fulfillment and kitting, you’ll have all that out of your hair. The other important benefit to consider is quality control. If you’ve ever tasked a mailroom staff member with assembling and shipping out your kits, you’ll appreciate these services even more when they’re performed by a trusted affiliate like your local printer. Sun Print Solutions offers digital and offset printing for customers in Utah and throughout the United States.
