PrintLocal.com takes the hassle out of finding the perfect fit between
a printer and your print project.
Whether you're looking for Book Printing, Magazine Printing, Business Card Printing, Commercial Printing, Digital Printing, offset printing, we can help you with you print job. Our experienced network of printers is capable of high quality business card printing, post card printing, brochures, book printing, envelope printing, poster printing, card printing, full color printing, magazine printing, catalog printing, and more. With over 30 years of experience in the printing industry, we know that sometimes it makes good financial sense to have your printing done in distant states, in Canada, or even in Europe. And we welcome printers of every sort, regardless of location, for just that reason.
But we also know that
shipping costs can eat you alive and that there are times—as when you need a press proof or a face-to-face meeting—that
there is no substitute for a local printer. But finding the right local
printer for a given job can require a lot of time and effort on your
know the drill. You’ve got to deliver 500 four-color press
kit brochures to the client in time for a product launch next week. So
you pick up the phone and start calling printers you’ve worked
with before. Or maybe you go to each printer’s Web site and fill
in a form. Either way, you have to list the job specs again and again
and again. Every printer’s spec sheet is different. And, of course,
there’s always that awkward moment when the salesperson gives you
a quote on the phone and waits for you to give him or her the go-ahead—and
you have to say “I’ll get back to you.”
So you go with the
lowest bidder. But it turns out that there are problems. Chief among
is the fact that the print shop doesn’t have the
right equipment for the job. Who knew? They sounded so nice on the phone.
Thanks to your efforts,
it all works out in the end. But not for the first time do you conclude
that sometimes going with the cheapest price
isn’t always the best policy. If only you’d known about that
printer beforehand! You certainly would never have given them the job.
These are the kinds of aggravations PrintLocal.com was created to eliminate.
PrintLocal.com, you fill out a single RFQ (Request for Quote) form,
enter your Zip
a radius in miles from your location, and
you’re done. Your quote request will instantly be sent to all the
subscribing printers within the area you’ve specified. Those who
are interested in the job will send you their bids by e-mail.
You can then respond
by e-mail or just pick up the phone. But before making your decision,
check the print buyer bulletin board to
see if others have posted positive or negative comments about the printer
you are considering. So you will have a much better idea of who you’re
simple. It’s easy. And, most important of all,
it makes perfect sense. We offer the kind of time-saving, money-saving,
aggravation-eliminating service the Internet pundits have been promising
for years. And it costs you nothing! No wonder print buyers love us so.
But they’re not alone. Printers also love us because our subscription
fees are so low: Just $99.95 a year or $14.95 a month, period. No commissions
or percentages! And if you’re a printer and you establish an ongoing
relationship with a customer you hooked up with via PrintLocal.com, you
don’t owe us a dime on your future business with that customer.
Ask yourself: What
do other printing industry Web sites do for you to justify a 2% or
on all future business you get from a
print buyer you found using their service? We think it is a misguided
business model. And we believe that as a printer, at these prices, there
is simply no way you can lose. If you get even one job you wouldn’t
have otherwise gotten, your subscription to PrintLocal.com will have
paid for itself.
you’re a printer or a print buyer, PrintLocal.com simply
makes sense! It combines communications technology, extensive printing
industry experience, and well-designed Web site programming to make it
as easy as possible for someone who needs printing services to identify
and do business with qualified printers, whether they’re down the
street or around the world.
