 Senior Vice President
 Work: 901-763-3171

Sooner or later, every business needs printed materials - stationery and envelopes, business forms or direct mail pieces. Placing a printing order for the first time can be a bewildering experience without the help of an understanding, competent business printer.
Like all industries, printing has its own vocabulary and customs. Do you want your cards two-up or four-up? Full bleed? Two-color or 30 percent screen? What about the paper you choose; will it be linen or rag, glossy or matte? The trick to navigating those new waters is to find a printer who knows what you need when you're not sure.
Too many printing customers find themselves confused and frustrated from their dealings with printers. They are tired of dealing with a variety of suppliers all over town; all they want is to get their material printed and returned. A professional printer offers solutions and has the technology and systems in place to be a one-stop source. They're in business to make busy print buyers' lives easier.
Will your printer visit you at your office with paper and ink samples? Provide you with a cost estimate quickly and give you the fastest turnaround time possible? If you trade poor service for a few dollars, you may spend more of your time tracking your printing projects.
