What kind of printing?

For canvass, wrap, and photo-paper printing, CircleGraphics does a pretty good job and has a lot of technical integration available to make this fairly easy.

For more paper, print, paper image, or product printing, PFL.com does really well and I've found their support and onboarding to be excellent. I'm sure they both overlap services quite a bit, so depending on what you need, it never hurts to talk to both.

If you are doing book publishing or similar, I'm not sure if either of the above supports what you'd need (but they might).

I've used both to limited degrees and have found them both easy to work with, but glancing at each of their websites, they don't seem to have a lot of their integration information easily available, so you may need to call and chat more directly.

(Obligatory Disclaimer: these are my personal recommendations and do not necessarily represent the opinion of any past or current client or employer.)

Hi -- I spent 7 years working for Vistaprint and know a bit about the print market. Your requirements should drive your consideration set. e.g. Quality - Very Good vs. Museum; Run Length - short (quantity of 1-50) vs long (51-100k); Turnaround time (hours vs. days); Printer - digital v offset; Price; Integration level, etc.

Explore:
  • Vistaprint (amazing value)
  • Staples & Fedex Office (wide range of capabilities)
  • Printing For Less (great with custom /complex programs)
  • 4 Over (solid)
  • Moo (terrific quality)
  • Your local commercial printer
PM me if you have more specific Q's or want other advice.

Regards,
Doug

Any idea on volume and what type of printing? I have experience in this type of negotiations and have a few thoughts on who to look at depending on volume. Sent from my iPhone. Steven Turner CEO www.imnsys.com www.simultv.com

Business Executive looking to make a difference...
I advise a company that has developed a web based print management platform (largely aimed at the transaction print market (bills; statement; invoices) that currently has a world-wide network of 150 printers...The business has two revenue models...Print/Mail Revenue Share and Postal Arbitrage...Is this the kind of business you are looking to start...or are you looking for a specialty print partner to push specialty print to.

Hi all, thanks for all the answers. I had posted this, and can't figure out how to respond again as my name wasn't attached to it initially.
The type of printing we need is brochures, and then expanding to things like business cards and photo books etc. If we capture even only 5% of our target market this would be in volume of 150,000.
