It’s not always easy to put a price on the important things in life. It’s not always easy to get someone to tell you how much they want you to pay for the services they offer. There are base prices, sale prices, special package deals, going-out-of-business prices, one-time prices and members-only prices. The list goes on and on! It can be very frustrating to try to get an actual dollar and cents answer from a business. So, why not make it simple?  Why not publish a price list? What’s the big secret?

We offer a service. We are printers. We sell a number of basic printing processes to businesses of all shapes and sizes. Our prices are posted, both on our advertising pieces and on our website.

Want 1,000 business cards printed in full-color on both sides, with the option of UV gloss or matte coating? $58 is the price. Need design with that? $75/hour (computed by the minute) is the price. Need postcards? brochures? We’ll tell you right up front what they will cost.

Are there exceptions? Absolutely. We’ll be happy to add features, change paper types and sizes, add spot coatings, or cut a diamond shape out of the middle of your brochure. How much will that cost? Just ask us…we’ll be happy to give it to you in writing! No secrets here!

They are magical words:

  • “You were the first person I thought of…”
  • “I always keep your phone number right on the top of my desk…”
  • “I would never call anyone else to help me in this situation…”

Those are words we all want to hear from our customers, so we can’t leave it to chance. We must find ways to keep our business names, our phone numbers and our website addresses right at our customers’ fingertips. There’s a reason we get asked to print logos and phone numbers on t-shirts, ball caps, magnets, calendars, and pens every day!
