The search for a proper print shop is one of the most difficult endeavors in life. As an artist I’ve trudged through countless companies, dealing with a cacophony of poor service, quality, and pricing in each establishment. I had to suffer through staff fumbling about with their own software, mistakes due to employee incompetence, and often insane pressure to pay more for lessservice.
That’s why discovering PrintFirm was such a surprising success, with each interaction leaving a lasting positive impression.
I ordered 250 business card sized (3.5x2in) rectangular colour stickers. Setting up the stickers for printing was simple using a template downloaded from the PrintFirm website. They were also able to easily accept and process the PDF I exported. I had no problems at all submitting the design, which was honestly a first for me. Printing previously with other business, I’ve had to offer personal assistance on every occasion to find and manage the files. Shipping and handling went smoothly as well, with the stickers arriving in a little over a week from submission.
The quality of the print was very great. Colours and lines were crisp, and cropping was flawless. I was impressed that PrintFirm even used stickers with a scored backing, to make application even easier. I’ve had to struggle in the past without this innovation, often tearing and bending up the corners. The stickers come with a UV coating to prevent sun and moisture damage, and it gives them a nifty sheen. It’s the little things. The adhesive seems strong and shows no signs of peeling.
Overall I was mightily impressed by the quality of the printing. I really could find nothing to complain about. Everything was in it’s place, and looking damn fine in it. The pricing was also quite reasonable – $35 for 250 stickers. Hard to find a better a deal anywhere.
Definitely would have to recommend PrintFirm to anyone’s who’s looking for quality printing – and even finer quality service.
