Looking for a Good Printer Someplace to order prints
Posted 01 December 2010 - 07:13 PM
Does anyone know a good print shop where I can send in an image and have the posters delivered to me? I'd really like to start building up my stock before my con season starts in April.
Thanks so much in advance!

I know another larger local (Illinois) shop is planning to install a 40" HP wide-format dye-type printer, but that too is yet to be judged for quality. I'm keeping tabs on tehm as I wouldn't mind a few large printed tings too...

Maybe if I'm really lucky and can make enough money from commissions to buy a real printer instead of my $30 broken printer/scanner.

Then I have two places I do larger runs (sometimes 50 prints, but usually if I'm looking for 100 or more, usually for graphic design work at this point). http://www.uprinting.com is where I go for 11 x 17 poster stuff. Their 50 run isn't too badly priced, but it can usually be matched by local people too. Printers just aren't that competitive in Lincoln, and prices are high for me. http://www.gotprint.com is also another place that is priced okay. Sometimes "flyers" are the better options for printing at these places.
I would actually just spend the money on a large format printer. I paid $125 for mine, and the ink is cheap. I can make 13 x 19 good quality prints for about $1.50 (well, I got my paper on super clearance on eBay, and it depends on the ink saturation for that size, but it isn't that far off)
