Default Looking For A Printing Company

Hi everybody

I do have my business for over a two years. I just got very dissapointed with a printing company I worked with long time. I am looking for something new, flexible and of course good quality. I have my own graphic designer so I am looking for a good printing company (flyers, posters, bus.cards etc.). London
Any suggestions? ASAP

I have someone who does full color work and does a very good job of it - I might add. Just make sure you spell check your work.

Hi Stela,

Where are you located. Might help to decide if the print company will be accessible to you.

Edit:
Just noticed you said London at the end of your post. Is this where you are based?

Default Check out 1to1postcards.com

Great prices and consistently on target with the quality. They are out of the midwest (US) I think.

1to1postcards.com

I have ordered from them several times and now that I am on the mailing list - (they don't spam) basically they just send offers and coupons. Good stuff...

Finding the right printer is important. The first quote I received on a new tabloid sized magazine was over $1.00 each... some research and countless phone calls resulted in a comparable cost from what I was having quoted at nearly 15% of the closest bidder.

YES!!! Ask others who they use!!! It's important to check references, look at their work and talk to the staff. If you have a bad experience on the interview, it won't get much better after you are asking for favors and needing help.

Good luck.

Sorry, I can't recommend anyone in London.

But I must say that artrium has the right approach -

“A SERVICE WHICH IS NOT COMPLETED ON THE TIME, IS NOT A SERVICE!”

My problem with printers has always (40 years+) been having the job done on time. Sure, quality counts and money matters. But the best wuality at a great price is worthless if it isn't ready when your project is in the starting gate and the printer is holding you up.

From fliers and handbills promised tomorrow by 10 that aren't ready until noon, to major promotional pieces, it seems like every printer I've dealt with is a liar.

Even the "quick copy" place where I leave things and says to give them 2 hours starts to run my copies when I come back to pick them up, still leaving me with 5 minutes standing around.

If artrium can deliver on his (her?) motto, he would get my business if it were practical to do business so far away.

Has anyone used any online printers for fulfillment? I am a bit skeptical of timing and if the order is completed correctly.
Thoughts?

Did you ever find a reliable printing service? If not, I would recommend Print Republic. A great service with numerous updated deals with regards to printing services from business card printing to flyers and brochures etc etc. Check out the website and get in contact with them for in-depth details but they have always provided a great service for me........... Good luck
