  • Overseas Expansion - Printing Options?

    My company will be expanding overseas very soon (India to be specific). I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on what's the best way to go about producing printed materials (stationary, business cards, etc.) for our overseas location. This is the first time I am having to deal with getting materials produced for overseas other than England. Having materials produced here is no problem, but the shipping is really expensive. I don't have any idea of where to begin to look for a reputable printer in Delhi or even if that's the right route to travel.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Let me preface my message with this...I hate off-shoring, my managers didnt care about my job because they had cheap labor elsewhere, leading me to needing a new job. Although I do not agree with the politics of offshoring I can understand the finanancial aspect.

    I do have a name of a company my old job partnered with in india...check out Affinity Express. I forget there parent companies name, but it could be a start.

      Thanks for the reply. I completely understand the ill feelings towarding off-shoring, but that's really not what is going on with my company. We are legitimately opening an additional office in India, not just moving jobs from the States. Anyway, thanks.

      I am going to look into Affinity Express, and again I appreciate the feedback.

          In both instances, you'd be combining halftone dots on the press to create the color and tonal variations of the image. The problem you're running into with CMYK seems more to do with inconsistencies...
