For most of our customers, it makes sense to purchase printed materials only from within the USA, but for some print buyers with complex distribution logistics, looking overseas is sometimes expected and may appear to offer better margins.
However, when you consider buying from other countries, the first thing that you should ask is whether you’re getting the same product for your lower price.
Much of the old, outdated, and obsolete printing equipment from the US and Europe is sold to companies in Asia and other countries. The overall product quality from these antique machines is a far cry from products printed in America.
Buying products made in the United States is an essential part of boosting the national economy and supporting American jobs. Even better, buying from domestic companies, like Kingston Printing, guarantees that your products come from a company that follows American labor laws and manufacturing requirements.
There’s also consideration to human rights: American workers are protected from exploitation by a variety of mechanisms not available to most workers in many other countries.
When you buy American, the materials and labor are provided by American suppliers and American workers, who use the latest technologies and are paid a fair wage for their labor. When you buy American, you help to keep our economy strong, and you show your support for American workers.
As a consumer, you have a choice. You can keep your hard-earned dollars here, or send them somewhere else.
