I want to create a couple resource pages for photographers with your opinion about the various services in the comments. If you are game for it I’d like to start with printing mailers.

A great resource for looking at mailers and promos is the blog No Plastic Sleeves: blog.noplasticsleeves.com
You can also visit many of the agent sites on our Agent List and they will many times show promos on their blog (just click the rss feed icon on the listing to visit an agents blog directly).

Wonderful machine has an excellent resource page where they list lots of companies under Printing – Business Cards & Mailers.

I know that Modern Postcard is an old standby for printing mailers and Moo has been very popular in the recent past, but what else do you recommend?


Agency Access “does a great job, quality is a bit better and a bit pricier”

Paper Chase Printing In LA “does a really good job”

PsPrint “been using them for years and they do nice work”

4by6 “really great printing quality and paper. their color has been incredibly accurate too”

  1. Agency Access does a great job and I have been very happy with Next Day Flyers

  2. Can anyone recommend a place in the Toronto area?

  3. I have been using psprint.com for years. They do very nice work. I’ve done postcards and biz cards through them.

  4. I’ve been using 4by6.com for my promos. Really great printing quality and paper. Their color has been incredibly accurate too.

  5. I’ve been very happy with MOO and Next Day Flyers. For my next piece, an 11×17 tri-fold, I’m going to try Sharpdots.com. It’s a smaller run, and sharpdots will let you run a smaller quantity.

  6. I’ve used both agency access printing and 4×6 for post cards. Love both, but AA quality is a bit better I think… Though it is quite a bit pricier.

  7. http://www.magcloud.com has great service, spot on color and no minimum on printing. Have used them to produce a couple small 8 page “magazine” mailers. They looked great and had a good response.

  8. I love GotPrint.com as well. Color is perfect, paper is great, fast turnaround and good customer service.

  9. Have been happy with Modern Postcard in the past.
    Remember, we’re generating junk mail here.
    Remember when A Photo Editor was still anonymous, and posted a video of the ton of stuff which found its way into his office and into a pile in the corner?

    Would love to know if anyone has recommendations for tabloid-sized newsprint promos? Short run.

    • Yeah, and whatever happened to First Stop–anyone remember that site that was trying to discourage print promos? I can’t find it, was this it? http://www.first-stop.org/

  10. +1 for Agency Access. They’ve done a great job with my mailers. Great folks and great products.

  11. Super fast turn around, like shipped the night I put in the order fast, and beautiful color and quality. White House Custom Color, http://whcc.com . Worth checking out.

  12. A designer referred me to Jakprints (www.jakprints.com) a few years ago. They do great work and have loads of options.

  13. Does anyone have any recommendations for UK based printers or US ones which ship internationally?
