    Anybody got any recommendations for printing business supplies and advertising e.g. business cards/letter heads/flyers in the UK?

    I have been printing them myself but think it would look more professional and work out cheaper if got them done professionally. I have tried vista print and was not that impressed, complained get a free batch and again was not impressed. I didn't even use the stuff they sent it was that shoddy.

    So any recommendations would be sweet...?

    I use a local guy who gets all his stuff done from a big printers in Leeds. I believe a lot of local printers do this now.

    Have a look in yellow pages etc for a local company then go and ask for some samples and shop around because prices can vary by £20 per 1000 business cards

    Hey mate, I use a company called Sk print designs up here in Manchester. A quick google of their name should bring their site up.

    Hi Mate,

    The best place I know in the UK is Solopress, they offer a 24 hour turnaround.

    Price is good and so is quality.

    We have spent around 80k with these guys over the past couple of years.

    Hi... I create designs myself and look for printers in ebay.co.uk as I know what I need and what not :)

    I remember - once I ordered b-cards from Poland... the quality was really good - lithography (can't compare with digital printing) as well the price was really sweet.. (don't ask for the link)

    Use a printing press and not a printing broker. If you go to the broker your just dealing with a middle man. The press will be cheaper as they are doing the printing themselves and not acting as an agent.
