    I know of those sites - I actually have profiles on them. The point of building it myself is to give me practice with web design. Again, why I'm here asking for criticism. If you have any feedback, it...

    I can appreciate that you're trying to build your site from scratch, but why not use a portfolio hosting site that offers free templates until you're more comfortable with web design? There are plenty...

    Does anyone have any recommendations for a low cost, but quality online printer such as Premium Printing Online?
    Thanks.

        Yeah, tell us more about your printing needs. Clubflyers.com does great work with a 24 hr. turnaround, but the selection of options is rather limited. I use them for all my flyering needs. Plus, they're running a special right now to celebrate their new site. Free ground shipping! (on certain orders)

            I'm looking for a couple of options for printing of a billboard 24' w x 8' h. I guess vinyl is the going thing?
            Anyone have any thoughts on this? psprint does this, but I'm looking for options...

                  I'm giving StepPrinting.com for some cards. I should receive them this week.

                  He's a member of this forum so I thought I'd give him a shot at my business.

                    Let us know what you think of step RP, I'm out of Vistaprint, but I still print with them cause I know the whole process, and know how to make sure the files are prepped right

                      Will do. I should receive the cards tomorrow or Wednesday. I just looked up my order and it said it was completed and I'm only about 20 miles from them so shipping shouldn't take long.

                        I was kind of disappointed with Vista. I sent them a PDF x1a for my last card run and there was ghosting in the transparency. I created the file in InDesign CS.

                        I don't care what their reasoning is, that should not happen.

                        I send out four different ads in that format every month and never have a problem.

                        I don't see why a PDF x1a should ever have that kind of problem.

                          like i said, I only trust em cause I worked with them, doing the file preps, thus far everything I've printed for myself or for clients has gone right, only because I've let my hand touch it. the prob you had is one of the probs common to online printing, not having the ability to physically proof the print.

                          Sucks really, but its the way things are going for small business printing...and the large print houses are hurting from it.

                            I'm happy to say that StepPrinting came through wonderfully. I ordered the cards (250 qty. 100 lb stock) Thursday night after work and I received them today (though I am close to them so shipping was only one day). No rush, nothing. 3 business day turnaround, can't beat that.

                            The cards look good though the design was extremely simple. There wasn't a lot to screw up but they look good none the less.

                            I'll definitely be using them again.

                              well since my post back in may i no longer use pkgraphics.com (there min. order is 5000 & they are unpredictable on colors)

                              i also used jakprints.com for a while & while there prices & quality were good i never knew when the job would go to print.

                              i then switched to 48hourprint.com for a few jobs & everyone of them was screwed up in one way or another (you can do a search here & find a rant of mine about these jobs)

                              i often use overnightprints.com for business cards but they only do them & some postcards

                              i just started using partnerprinting.com i have my first big job out to binery now when i get them in i'll let you know how they come out.

                              i wish i had a local printer so i wouldn't have to go through this online nightmare.
                              (hopefully partner will be the answer. i've only heard good things about them.)
