2. How do Chhapai.in products & services stand out from the other local printers ?

There are 3 Powerful ways

First is TIME, since we have made contingencies at every critical stage of production to ensure that a breakdown in the middle of the night won’t affect the all-important turnaround. This way you are able to provide on-time guarantees for each product that you sell.

Second is QUALITY, we print every order on high definition reproduction This means your photos and text will be printed so clearly that you’ll want to lick them. (Just see this brochure again). Our business specializes in producing high grade full colour print using the state of art machines.

Third and most importantly is our SERVICE, a studio environment instead of clink-clink-clatter-clatter sounds. Fixed prices of over 2750 products in full colour printing. Ordering system as easy as 1.2.3... Display of samples. Technical print guru's to help clients choose the best product for their
requirement.

3. What is the typical amount of percentage I'm likely to earn ? TOP

The more you sell, the more money you earn. It's simple as that. Here is an example showing how you will earn from each order.

In one of the surveys held we came to know that over 96.3 % of clients reorder with us. Besides this its the nature of business that all major businesses do not change the design artwork for stationery and packaging very often so they rely on the current printer for perfect colour matching and maintaining print standards.

7. Do I have a designated territory ?TOP

The answer is Yes. Dependent on size in the territories defines by our master franchise of states. We would structure an agreement providing exclusive rights to our services within a given territory.

9. What competition will I have ?TOP

Because we are the leaders in full colour printing, it is natural that others have already tried to follow our lead. However, because our systems and methodologies have been refined over the years and because our reputation and buying influence are now so strong, it would be difficult for most other printers to match the strength and depth of Chhapai.in

10. Can I set my own print prices ?

You can discount our list price. Our golden rule is you can’t sell the printing for any more than our list price – this preserves the integrity of Chhapai.in renowned superior value. Of course you can sell value-added
services such as artwork, scanning, image manipulation, copywriting, proofs and charge an appropriate fee.
