Here's what print buyers want to know about Coyle Print Group

  • What does Coyle do?    top

         Coyle Print Group is a print production company.  We are agents working on behalf of print buyers.  Our job is to find the right vendors to produce your work in the most timely and efficient manner possible; and then supervise those vendors to make sure your job is delivered as ordered.

  • Who are Coyle’s clients?    top

         We work for print buyers, and print buyers come in many shapes and sizes:

    • Corporate marketing / communications departments    Who are Coyle's Clients?

           Our top clients are end user corporations.  We typically work with marketing /communications and purchasing personnel inside these companies.  These print pros rely on our expertise to produce complicated “one of” jobs, and they depend on us to help streamline their print procurement systems.

           It can be more efficient to outsource to Coyle than to hire, train and maintain a print production staff.

    • Agency production supervisors    Who are Coyle's Clients?

           Promotion agencies and advertising agencies frequently rely on Coyle to help source and produce work for their end user clients.  Especially when they’re under tight time constraints, agency production professionals know they can rely on Coyle to get it done right and get it done fast.

           The agency world moves fast and revolves around billable hours.  Many agencies appreciate the fact that all the hours Coyle spends in research do not go against the agency's manpower budgets.  Using Coyle to source work, research processes and oversee production makes their departments more profitable.

           And they know they can trust Coyle to respect the agency's relationships with its clients.  Coyle is invisible to the end user unless expressly advised to make contact.

    • Graphic designers    Who are Coyle's Clients?

           Graphic designers are often charged with sourcing the work they design.  This responsibility puts the designer in a tough spot.  How can she finish all the design work on her plate if she has to spend hours and hours on production?

           Some of Chicago’s top designers have realized that they can outsource the print buying and production to Coyle.  This allows them to do what they do best while still maintaining direct control over the client relationship.

    • Business owners and entrepreneurs    Who are Coyle's Clients?

           Catalogers and direct mail marketers find Coyle’s service very valuable.  Coyle allows these companies to outsource all their production and keep their overhead low.  Plus, with Coyle they know they’ll always get top quality and the lowest prices possible.

           When profitability hinges on shaving pennies off a CPM, Coyle’s service is essential.

    • Commercial printers    Who are Coyle's Clients?

           When a great client comes in with specs that don’t fit a printer’s presses, it’s time to call Coyle.

           With one phone call the printer can get pricing and production for that job, and never miss a beat.  Because Coyle’s service is invisible to the printer’s client, the printer can maintain control over its valuable relationships while earning profit it would have lost if the client went direct to another printer.

           Some printers even use Coyle when they’ve bid jobs and lost on price.  Shooting the specs over to Coyle can allow a printer to capture revenue on jobs they’ve lost.  Now that’s a valuable service.

    • Print Brokers    Who are Coyle's Clients?

           Some of Coyle’s top clients are print brokers.  Typically these brokers call Coyle from the West Coast or East Coast with jobs that need to be manufactured in Chicago; or because they’re looking for in-line web facilities and they know that Coyle is in the heart of Web country.

           You see Illinois has more Web presses than any other state.  And Coyle has relationships with all of the top web houses.  When you need press time and you need it now, it’s easier to call Coyle.

           And savvy brokers realize that it’s better to partner with Coyle, retain the revenue and make a happy client then to try to manage printers they’ve never met from five states away.

  • Where did Coyle come from?    top

         Sean Coyle is a printing salesman.  He has worked for several different plants and represented sheetfed, Web, flexo and digital facilities.

         After 14 years of pounding the pavement and competing on price, he finally had enough.

         "I was working 80 hours a week trying to sell press time only to get my legs cut out from under me by another printer who was willing to do the job for less money."

         "I couldn’t find a single-source vendor to produce all of my clients’ jobs, so I started one."
