I was shocked after checking into printing rates this season after a client asked me about low cost printing options. What he wanted was a lower printing bill, and he was afraid that by asking me to handle it he’d end up paying for design time plus printing rates in the neighborhood of the rates he’d seen quoted online. If you’ve got a design you like already, I can still help you get the best possible printing prices with no extra charges for design time. I’m always frustrated when I hear new business or small business owners talk about finding great deals through online sources like Vista Print. Sure, that means I didn’t get their business, but more importantly it means that I know they paid waaaay too much.
