I agree. I`m a graphic designer too of 15 years, with about 11 of those as a prepress tech. (I know my printing.) I would certainly not choose just by low price. Then again, what I need isn`t rocket science. It`s just my header cards, 2 up on an 8.5x11, on specific 80# card stock by Neenah and Wausau, black ink, scored twice and cut.
I`ve decided today to hold off my search for now and stick with my printer. I have too much business right now to switch. I just took on a very large fair in our area (it`s in 5 weeks) and will need a few thousand printed this week. I had better stick with the people who know my stuff for now.
Thanks everyone, for your suggestions and insight!
