Outsourced Vendors

Outsourced vendors are an external third party contracted by the print shop to which they can shift jobs, operations, and other processes. This is typically done to reduce costs, improve efficiency, or to fulfill a type of job they would have not been able to do with the equipment on hand.


Multiple vendors can be added to the outsourced tab and chosen for use on an item.
