Print Cheap Catalogs That Don't Look Cheap!

You can save up on your printing jobs without compromising the quality of your prints. Make your every cent count by spending wisely. Consider these 2 Tips before printing your business catalogs:

1. Print in Bulk

Headsweats_mockup-inside2.pngInstead of printing tons of custom catalogs every month, do it quarterly to save up. You can schedule quarterly release of your catalogs if you don’t have a lot to advertise for or if you don't have something urgent to showcase. Aside from cutting cost, this builds up your consumers’ anticipation. It is better that your customers have always something new to look forward to from your brand. Also, with PrintingCenterUSA, the more you order at one time, the more you save! We specialize in bulk, short run, small and square printing and can print discount catalogs that doesn't lack in quality.

Get Started with Catalogs

Mon, Jan 2, 2017 @ 02:55 PM Taler Hill 0 printing Catalog online design Cheap 2017 product


2018 is coming fast which means it's time for Winter and Spring Catalogs to get out to the public. Whether you are promoting an advertising catalog, educational catalog, equipment catalog, product catalog, food & beverage catalogs, apparel catalogs, sporting goods catalogs and so much more! Here at PrintingCenterUSA, we have several Catalog printing services to make sure your 2018 Catalog is the best on the market.

First, let's define catalog. We define catalogs as displaying and promoting a collection of products and or services to increase sales efforts for your products and may include images, illustrations, design elements, graphics, charts, or pictures that attract attention. A bit of mouthful, right? Don't worry! A catalog can basically build itself if you have good information and good products. If this is your first catalog, we will give you all of the tools you need to produce something fantastic at a great price! Start by reading our three main starting points that you need to make a fantastic catalog.


Do you know what you need to start your catalog? We can help you!

What Do You Need To Start Your Catalog?

Collect Images for your 2017 Catalog!The first thing you need to start your catalog is images of your products. Find someone to take high quality photos and try to organize them in a way that would make sense to the buyer or person seeking information. Don't forget that in order for pictures to be printed with a high resolution, they need to be 300 dpi. Most photos you might find online are normally only 72 dpi, because they are formulated for the web. Collecting decent photos might be the most important part of the catalog printing process. If your photos aren't decent quality, you won't sell what you need to sell, be it products or just information. A picture is worth a thousand words, a true cliche that shouldn't be taken for granted.


Start Designing Your 2017 Catalog!The second thing you need is a design software to organize your images and information in an attractive way. We have easy start templates so that your files can start off error free and helps making the printing process easier. Not everyone has access to that, and we understand.

Getting Better Prices Than Kinkos: Calendar Edition

A Price Better Than Kinkos: Calendar Edition

When it comes to printing, most people turn to what is familiar – their local Kinkos®, now called FedEx Office®. And when they search online, they are trying to find out some specific information on how much their printing needs will cost. But have you ever wondered why Kinkos® is SO expensive if you want more than one copy of that flyer your boss needs? This article helps you understand why they are so pricey and how you can save money on your printing needs!

What are Kinkos® Printing Prices?  

Before we jump into pricing, have you decided which product you need printed? September through December is calendar season for us! We are right in the middle of the time where everyone and their mom is looking to print their 2017 calendars. So for arguments sake, we want to show you our Calendars prices vs FedEx Office®, so you can really understand their pricing.

We went online and found their calendar order page. They don’t have a pricing tool where you can customize your calendar, but instead just have a list of prices that compares whether or not you want to add color to your calendar grid. As you can see, ordering any amount of calendars is NOT worth your while. These prices are ridiculous, and border into crazy. (Don't believe me? Click here to see for yourself!)

Fed Ex Prices are based per calendar and do NOT get cheaper as the quantity goes up!

PCUSA offers an instant pricing tool where you can customize all of your options!

< Now take a look at our unique pricing tool. It is customizable and you can see the price differences on each choice you make. It also gives you shipping charges and shows you how much you save if you choose to wait a couple extra days for your order. Just by looking at these differences, our prices are dramatically lower. It comes out to about $4 per calendar.* When it comes to calendar ordering, we have got you covered. Not only do we have great prices, but we have a FREE calendar design tool and loads of FREE templates to get you started. Or if you already have your calendar ready, just start your order and easily upload your files.

Start your calendar today!


Why are Kinkos® Prices So Expensive?

The reason FedEx Office® is so expensive is because instead of existing as a trusted online printing company with a single location like us, they have about 2,000 locations nationwide. So basically, you pay extra to keep all those stores in business. You pay to stock those stores, you pay the staff, and you pay for all the equipment to keep each and every store running.

Why not choose the #1 Rated Printing Company for your printing needs? Our single location means we have access to getting you the lowest price because we don’t overcharge you for operating costs.

We have hundreds and hundreds of great reviews from our loyal customers, and we want to give you a great experience too!

Beauty Comes in All Shapes and Sizes, Especially When it Comes to Booklets!

Mon, Aug 29, 2016 @ 04:04 PM Taler Hill 0 design Cheap Booklets custom


Need to Customize Your Booklet? We've Got You Covered!

The list of people who use booklets or SHOULD be using booklets is endless. Anyone can use a custom booklet printing service, whether it is for personal use, for sale, for education, or for marketing. Our discount color booklet printing is important to any industry because you can customize your information in almost any way you want!

Let's first talk about sizes and shape. Making a portrait booklet or a landscape one? Or maybe you need square options. Pick a basic layout and then compare:




When picking your size and shape, it is important to consider what the topic of your booklet will be. Portrait formats are useful for booklets that companies intend to be read like a magazine, while square booklets are perfect for photos! Meanwhile, landscape-styled booklets tend to be well suited for catalogs or other promotional materials.

Need more ideas for what your booklet design should be? Check out our full color booklet printing blog post called "New To Booklet Design? Here's How to Do It Right!"


 Saddle stitched booklets are single sheets of paper, printed on both sides, collated in page number order, folded in half, stapled on the fold and then the three sides are trimmed down to final sizes. WHEW that is a mouthful. Basically it looks exactly like what you imagine a booklet to be. Saddle stitched booklets are our favorite because they give you a lot using only a little. A single folded sheet of paper gives you a total of four pages! Another great thing about saddle stitching is that the pages stay open and lay flat when flipping through, so it's easier to read!

We recommend them because they are by far our most popular, inexpensive and simple to make. They are also professional and with saddle stitched binding you can make a booklet with up to 96 pages!

Ready to order? Get started on your one of a kind saddle stitched booklet today!

However, we understand that you might have projects that require a higher page count. Don't leave though, because we have options for that too! Perfect bound, spiral, or wire-o binding are available and work well for projects with higher page counts and larger quantities!


PrintingCenterUSA has the solution for any companies' booklet printing service challenges. We specialize in short run printing in quantities of 10 to 1,000 and bulk printing for quantities over 1,000 with vibrant color photos on a top quality premium paper.
