Why Choose a Local Dealer?

At first glance, you might assume this article is biased in favor of Atlantic Graphic Systems, the company I represent as Showroom and Marketing Manager. However, let’s approach this from a different angle, setting aside my professional affiliation and delving into my personal journey from production work to my current role. 

Personal Experience

My journey in the printing industry began at 16, as a student at a local vocational technical school in Westminster, Maryland. Back then, I was captivated by the creative potential of printing machines, without considering their costs or the intricacies of servicing them. It wasn’t until I entered the workforce at a local print shop in Owings Mills that I realized the challenges of obtaining timely and efficient service for equipment issues.

Reflecting on those experiences, I’ve come to understand that the challenges in obtaining service aren’t solely the fault of large dealers or manufacturers. It often boils down to the sheer volume of equipment they handle, which can lead to stretched resources and delayed service calls. 

When I joined Atlantic Graphic Systems, I initially questioned why customers would choose us over more renowned larger dealers. However, I now grasp the importance of considering the market landscape and the unique benefits a local dealer can offer.

Service & Support

Local service is a game-changer, no doubt about it. Think about it – having someone right there in your neighborhood, ready to jump in even after hours or on a weekend. It’s about going that extra mile, something folks might not fully appreciate until they experience it firsthand. Picture this: when you dial in, you’re not greeted by some automated system; there’s a real person on the other end, ready to roll up their sleeves and help you out.

Sales Team

Then there’s the added bonus of sales assistance. You’re not just a faceless number in a sales quota spreadsheet; our sales reps are all about finding tailored solutions for you. Every sale starts with a problem, right? That’s where we come in, armed with the guidance and connections you need to tackle any challenge head-on.

Demos & Peace of Mind

Let’s talk about demos. There’s nothing quite like stepping into our facility, meeting the whole crew, and witnessing firsthand the dedication we pour into our work. You get to see samples being churned out in real-time, with real data backing it all up. Now, here’s where I come in. Let me be real for a second – my role? It’s all about peace of mind. Got a material or color you’re not sure about? No sweat, I’ve got your back. Need a hand with file prep or troubleshooting an issue with a machine? Count on me to test on our machines to sort it out, pronto. Got a job due yesterday and the machine’s acting up? Swing by, we’ll get you sorted, no fuss, no muss – we’re all about flexibility and being there when you need us.

Local Dealers

Having someone in your corner when things go awry is truly invaluable. The team at Atlantic Graphic Systems exemplifies this attitude, demonstrating unwavering empathy and dedication to helping customers succeed. Whether you’re a small business or a larger enterprise, we’re committed to supporting you every step of the way.

In conclusion, while it may sound biased, my belief in the value of local dealers like Atlantic Graphic Systems stems from firsthand experience and a genuine passion for helping our customers thrive. We’re not just here to sell equipment; we’re here to build lasting partnerships and provide the support and assistance you need to succeed in a dynamic industry. So, when it comes to purchasing new equipment or seeking assistance, remember: choosing a local dealer can make all the difference.
