Using a local digital imaging company over one you would find on the Internet is generally preferable. When you work with a local digital imaging company you can get an idea of what the graphic artists that they employ are like. This can help you to find one that will be able to work with you long term on whatever projects you may have. The thing with digital images is that they tend to evolve and grow over time. By using a local digital imaging company you can meet with them face to face on a regular basis and get input on any projects you may have coming up. This personal relationship is one of the most important, though not the only; reason to work with a local digital imaging company. Another reason to work with a local digital imaging company is cost and turnaround time. It can be far cheaper because you can get in contact and work directly with them. The cost comes in from the amount time you waste by working with a company that is not local. By using a local digital imaging company you can be assured that you will stay on task and that your projects will be completed in a timely fashion. Most of this is because again you have a direct relationship with the local digital imaging company that you can leverage to ensure that your projects get finished. When you work with a company that is not local it can be harder to press them to ensure that your projects get completed quickly and accurately.
