Smartpress Select FAQ
What is Smartpress Select?
Smartpress Select is an extra service we provide for professional print buyers. The benefits are based on your annual spend* with Smartpress.com, and the benefits increase the more you spend. Here are the qualifications:
- If you spend $5,000 or more with Smartpress.com per calendar year, you’ll get 7.5% off all your orders.
- If you spend $10,000 or more with Smartpress.com per calendar year, you’ll get 10% off all of your orders.
There are other benefits, too. As a Smartpress Select customer, you’ll get priority proof processing, ship date assurance, and the option of pre-approved proofs so your orders are processed faster.
*Annual spend is based on print spend and does not include postage, shipping, or tax.
Are there other things I should know about Smartpress Select?
One important thing to know is that we can offer special services like Smartpress Select to customers when orders are placed correctly. This means making sure your print ready files are set up appropriately for pre-press. We’re happy to provide some initial coaching on submitting correct print files. If we need to do consistent adjusting or correction to your files, a design services charge may be applied to your order.
Isn’t there a $99 annual fee?
Not anymore! When the expanded Smartpress Select program was introduced in 2015, it included a $99 annual membership fee. We listened to our customers, improved and restructured the program, and eliminated the fee. This is now a completely free service to creative pros like you.
Simply spend more than $5,000 in a calendar year (January 1, 2016 – December 31, 2016) to enroll, and receive all the benefits of the program, which include:
- priority proof processing
- ship date assurance
- skipping the proofing cycle
- exclusive discount (based on calendar year spend)
Do I have to wait until 2017 to get into the Smartpress Select program?
Not at all. Though we do base the program on a calendar year, once you reach the $5,000 or $10,000 spend thresholds, you can request to be included. Here’s how it works:
- If you spend $5,000 or more with us in 2016, please let us know, and we will upgrade your account to get 7.5% off your future orders.
- If you spend $10,000 or more with us in 2016, please let us know and we will upgrade your account to get 10% off your future orders.
