Lower Costs, Try Online Printing Services
One of the best ways we’ve found for reducing overhead, next to crowdsourcing, has been to leverage online printing companies instead of the standard Kinko’s or local print-shop plays. Two of our favorites are:
uPrinting.com – Great for business cards, flyers, rack cards, etc – anything that you print on paper. You can upload your graphic files to their website and order in less than 10 minutes. The quality is terrific (better than Kinkos & another local shop we tried) and I haven’t seen better prices anywhere else.
BuildASign.com – Cheesy name, but these guys knock the ball out of the park. Again, great software, very high quality output, and almost astounding prices on banners, signs, etc. We just got a sign printed up by them to be delivered next week. We called a couple local shops and they quoted us 5-times the BuildASign price. When we told them that was way too high, they dropped their price to 3x the BAS price. Clearly the BAS guys are leveraging the economy of scale advantage they have to keep their prices extremely competitive.
Next time you need something printed, and you’ve got a week of lead time, I highly recommend trying an online printing service.
