How Has Your Experience Been Using Online Print Sites Compared to a Storefront Printshop?

By "Yo Adrian" Sanchez 714-319-9930 · Posted on Thursday, July 20, 2017 · Tagged in General Discussion



what has been your experience with an online printing company (like Vistaprint) versus a storefront printshop, or even a local printing broker?

we are a 'boutique' print shop, founded in 1989, focusing on a handful of clients day-to-day, that has fulfillment capabilities to provide virtually any type of printed product, so it's interesting to me as business development manager to understand the real world experience of online print purchasing

Hi Bob, sure what do you charge for a political sign include the H - I work with Vektor Alliance here in Irvine. I will provide you with the cost for 100 signs, however, this year it will quadruple if I make it thru the primary.

Hi, Katherine,

We are located about 2 miles from you, also in Irvine, exit 5 Freeway at Bake Pkwy to 15510 Rockfield Blvd. B110.

I would appreciate the opportunity to introduce you and your candidacy to the owner, Mike Ghaffarian...it wouldn't hurt to partner together to "smooze him" into a better price on all your print/advertising/marketing/promotional needs. LOL!

As a locally owned Irvine small business at the same Rockfield Business Center since 1989, with Mike being one of the co-founders of the Irvine based OC Iranian-American Chamber of Commerce [Mayor... (more)

Hi, Katherine, do you want us to give you a quote on your signs first to find out if we have an "economic compatibility?" ( LOL....wasn't sure how to word that!)

To put it bluntly, as a fellow Irvine small business, we would appreciate an opportunity to earn your business.

Hi, Katherine,

If you, or anyone else you know, needs printed items of any material or size that your Vektor Alliance can't supply, or for some reason can't meet your deadline needs, please let us know. We are not the lowest price, certainly not the highest, but offer more of a 'concierge' experience so whatever needs to be done with accuracy (we are "bulldogs" about correcting misspelled words or bad grammar LOL), accountability (if it ain't right, it ain't right, and it's on us to get it done right), and accessibility (Alignable, call, text or email to get...

Vistaprint does amazing work with their global connections, but we are small family owned print shop that provides cost effective print solutions. We put our passion serving the clients. Please look into value a small printer provides, such as: offers suggestions on your color, file preparation, meeting the deadline, so many. The small printer tries hard to make a success because their success is depends on you. The long term value they add to your organization can never be underestimated.

Kate, no I will give my business to my local printer for his excellent service and his outstanding pricing. Vector Alliance does extraordinary work. His pricing so far can not be beat and his products are perfect!

Okay - just for my information - 5.17/each isn't less? Long Beach CA isn't local?

I love your response. I am sure the local printer must have been providing value. We need more like you loyal customers for local print shops as many are losing business to large giants.

I recommend if you like them so much - you take a minute to say that on Yelp! Poor guy has only 2 reviews - one from 2014 and one from 2015. Local shops need their clients to help spread the word!

Kate Braid from Hungry Dog Printing

One added value we do is a free art check - we want our printing to stand up against the Queen Beach Printers of the world - stellar!

If the client doesn't supply vector based artwork - we drop it in Illustrator and make sure it isn't "Photoshop Fuzzy" - the results speak for themselves in our 48 5-star reviews on Yelp.

If your clients love you - they want to share the news on Yelp!
