Short-Run Printing Price List
Unlike most printers, we publish our prices so there are no surprises. Before we started printing ourselves, we found that most of the printers we dealt with were like used car dealers - they charged what the market will bear (and you had to haggle if you wanted a deal). We found this about as much fun as going to the dentist. Our prices are non-negotiable, but they are published and fair.
Prices are for work done on contract only. We do not print books or other one-offs. We specialize in repetitive, short-run, high-quality publications work ONLY. Contracts are 1 to 5 years and prices are guaranteed (exclusive of paper). Contact us for sample contracts (they include the standard Printing Trade Customs). New customers are expected to pay 50% COD and 50% 2/10 net 30 for their first six months as a customer (subject to credit approval).
