Save Money | Recommended online Vendors!

Posted on October 30th, 2009 by Que Sera in favorites

Due to popular demand (as well as super busy-ness — thank you everyone!) I’ve decided to share my secrets.. well a couple of them, anyways!

As opposed to me sending your jobs to print & having to up-charge for my research & development of this list & time etc… here is a direct link to a few of the online printing companies ( & other online resources) I have used for past projects.

read more for names, my experiences with them & links…


[ PRINTING ]


Print Runner |

prints many different things – just about anything — They have printed brochures & a large trade show banner for me (that I can think of off the top of my head :) ) –
both turned out well – (not gorgeous, but definitely good… but what do you expect from cheap online printers :) ) & their customer service was very good – they actually told me something that wasn’t true, so refunded my rush shipping charges & overnighted the banner to me for free. so.. Thank you Print Runner! You can visit their site & browse the many services/products they offer below…

Quality Printing for Less

Overnight Prints|

I’ve used Overnight Print quite a bit for business cards particularly. I have used them (or had clients use them) for brochures that once turned out perfectly & the 2nd time turned out with the colors not quite right… I’ve had postcards printed with them that turned out great & others that were off just a bit on the trimming —

High Quality Business Cards at Low Prices!

I recommend them for buisness cards 100% – all business cards I’ve sent them have come back great!

High Quality Business Cards

Print Place |

ok, I have not used them (yet) but received their package of samples last week — Very cool – great (GREAT) work in pocket folders & catalogs, cd/dvd mailers.. They’re definitely work checking out!

Cheap Post Card Printing

This one, I am possibly going to use for an upcoming project- they’re for the ‘super low budget’ customer – They offer an upfront discount plus free business cards etc.. as incentives to use their service.. I received their packet of samples & the work was.. well ok – The truth stands.. if you want super quality & great service… choose a great local printer ( I know a few & would recommend them upon request) , they really do provide the best service and printing & are worth the extra money if you have it.

UPDATE: (12/09) if time is an issue & customer service is important.. not really recommended.

They took almost a month to print a job that was estimated to be delivered in 2 weeks. Also forgot a portion of the order… then when they did print/deliver the missing portion.. trimmed them badly, leaving their trim marks (placed by them.. not on my artwork) visible on 2 of the 4 sides of the finished product. Am still awaiting their resolution of this, but definitely not a first choice for me for future jobs. Proceed w/ them at your own risk…

[ WEB SERVICES ]


Web Hosting|

This is unquestionably the best hosting I’ve found to date – unlimited everything & a very affordable price. I’ve had no downtimes due to server errors that I’m aware of & can say that the tech support is fairly helpful – always has helped me figure out whatever weird issue I was having :) — I have numerous domains/clients domains set up with bluehost – but if you want to skip the middleman .. here’s the link!

Web Hosting

Host Unlimited Domains on 1 Account


Bluehost.com Web Hosting $6.95

Domain Registration|

GoDaddy is my first choice for domains — I have many domains registered with them & use for all my client’s domains also – cheap – easy, etc..

GoDaddy.com Hosting & Servers 468x60

Like everyone, I’ve also worked with network solutions. They’re a professional choice & very reputable for a full collection of web related solutions.

Here’s another one I just found, it offers unlimited access to vector images, templates (for word documents, powerpoints, websites & more..) due to the nature of what I do – I think signing up personally, for me is a good idea, especially for my clients wanting to save money by not having me design a fully custom piece.. — if it is for you too, enjoy! They have some cool stuff!
