You’re right. I shouldn’t bet. Please forgive me.
Here are 5 cheap printers at least I had never heard of before the past month, but now are a part of my arsenal. Have you heard of or used any of these services?
I came across this gem last week when I was looking to print bulletin shells for a church that is part of Creative Missions. Usually, PSPrint ‘s prices are hard to beat on that kind of stuff, especially when they are running sales, but GotPrint beat them by a landslide, and good quality, too
2. GR Print
Chuck Scoggins told me about this service. I haven’t used them yet, but from what I hear, their prices are hard to beat, too.
In order to obtain wholesale pricing you just need to create an account. Looks pretty painless.
3. Bing Banners
The pricing isn’t the cheapest, but they do offer free shipping, and have a fast turnaround (1 day). Plus, their ordering process is pretty easy.
4. Superior Signs
When Eric and I led the breakout at Echo this year, we spoke about doing church comm. on the cheap. Jeremy Phillips was in the breakout, and afterwards told me about using this sign printer by the taco bar.
Jeremy said, “they currently offer $1.50 per square foot, but you can ask them to send you a rate sheet for everything.”
OK, so this is one source that I had heard of and used before this summer, but I just wanted to drive the point home that ebay can be a church communication budget’s friend.
The link above, for example, will take you to one of many vendors who offer .99/square foot vinyl banners. That’s ninety-nine cents! When your next project calls for a vinyl banner, go to ebay and enter the search term “.99 vinyl banner.”
Heck, any printing need you have I bet you can find it on ebay.
What about you?
