 Some days may not be as better as the other days. They may seem insignificant but they are actually costing a lot more than you think it does.

Most printers would rather continue on doing their printing job than take some time off to look for the real causes of these misprints. Why would they, in the first place? Besides having a scheduled deadline for their printing jobs, they would prefer having it done and finish with at the quickest possible time. They are actually too busy making mistakes to take the time to correct them.

The key to everything is simply correction. Correcting printing problems is not just about editing and putting on distracting things to cover up for the mistakes. The way to do it is to get to the bottom of the root cause so that you do not have to stop in the end and go back to corrections.

In order to fix the problem of having misprints, there are factors to consider to be able to attain this. The first is finding a way to keep track of the reasons why misprints occurred. The most common cause of these things is the tools and machines used. Machines being the machines that they are tend to malfunction every now and then. Like the misprints, these things cannot be avoided also.

That is why the second factor is the one that should support these machines on the process of printing. The employees and the operators making the machine work. These people should be the ones checking for anything on the machine that might hinder the printing process. If they want a smooth sailing operation done, this task should be taken seriously.

The first factor is easier to do than the second one. Identifying the source of spoiled printing can be as simple as continuing with the printing and recording the number of spoiled ones done.  Or noting the reasons the prints were spoiled.

Once you have recorded and taken note of the pattern in the misprints that keep appearing, you will begin to see where the problem usually occurs. You will see that there are really just some limited sources that cause the misprints. Then you can formulate the solution to solve that problem.

In the end, the majority of print problems are reduced. Then you will realize that you are actually cutting the unneeded costs incurred because of the misprint problems.
