  • 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.

          Thank you, don't know exactly but it looks similar and portraits the same feel as DIN, such a great typeface.

          Thank you again, much appreciate it!...

          CS6 is perfectly fine. Even though it can be awkward to ask someone to save down to CS6 for you if they send you a file, it's still fine in most cases. For what you're doing you could probably use original...

          You don't say how long you go without anything to do, but I think what you're describing is common. I experienced this at my second in-house job. There would be days with little to do, then all the sudden...

          It sounds like whoever ordered the graphic file is ordering the shirts through a promotional items vendor who is then outsourcing the work, probably overseas.

          I would certainly have a clause...
