    Howdy, currently in search of a new supplier of print items like business cards, flyers, event tickets and so on. I have currently used 4 over trade and have loved the final products produced. With that be 9...ing said after a few years they have raised pricing considerably but shipping costs also, along with longer production times. 8 days on standard business cards 4/0 is kind of lengthy in nbn today's market. What are my alternatives out there?

    Thank you
    Markus

    Not sure of a MM here that does paper printing.
    or one that is better than 4Over

    Zoo Printing is a close 2nd

    that is a long time for standard cards,
    I placed an order for 16PT QTY 250 4/0 and had them back in hand 3 working days. uploaded on 9th (after the cut off time) and they were delivered on the 12th

    I believe 4over has different turn times depending upon what level you are with them as far as sales but I can't imagine standard business cards taking that long. The standard turn time is next day + 1 day with a slight up charge for next day service. They have a facility in NJ so shipping should only be one day.

    Hey Markus. We use 4Over who has a super quick turnaround on over 90% of their products. We send around 100 orders a year to them, and have only had a few mistakes. I would personally give them a try. Hope this helps.

    We use Elite4Print.com and have been very happy. I find there website is quicker than 4over. 4over seems to have to refresh every time you make a dropdown change. They are in California though.

    Howdy. I've been outsourcing printing for 12 years. Try www.printdirectforless.com call Ed and tell him that Mark from Full Color Resources sent you. Great price, great service and you can actually talk to someone on the phone unlike 4over or Zoo.

    I use Zoo and...dare I say VistaPrint? I have a business account with VistaPrint and they are always running specials. 500 cards with Zoo is $37.80 with shipping. I just ordered 500 cards from VistaPrint on sale for $16.98 incl. shipping. Turn-around time is 5-7 business days but if the customer isn't in a hurry, that's $20.82 more in my pocket. I like the ordering system on VistaPrint better than Zoo. I use Zoo for printed vinyl and coro signs, I've been happy so far with both companies quality.

    We have used Zoo for years. Zoo's lead time has gotten longer and we have had a number of issues with their quality and it vet difficult to get help in resolving issues. We recently switched to Sinalite and have been very happy so far. Their prices are good and they have quick turnaround.
     
  15. I will often use America's Printer for commercial printing. 1000 16pt. full color business cards $15.95. You can pay more for faster shipping. They have a full range of products. Personal service. I've never had any problems with them.

    I have heard really good things about the quality of Signs 365 Business cards. That being said, we would love to work with you on your wholesale signage. Ever get any requests for short run poster?
