Seattle, WA (PRWEB) July 26, 2006
In a break with online printing industry norms, Print Ltd (http://www.printltd.com) online full-color printers headquartered in Seattle, Washington—announced that they will no longer add a fee for proofing, and that they will now offer free shipping to anywhere in North America.
"We've built our business on top quality full-colour printing, excellent service, and very competitive pricing" said Print Ltd's General Manager, Darlene Richard. "We wield a sharp pencil to keep our prices directly competitive with the world's best online printing companies. These initiatives reflect that."
The company had found it increasingly difficult to justify charging the proofing fee, said Richard. "Many, perhaps most, printers apply a fee, but we felt this was an item we could and should remove from our customers' bills."
Similar customer-centric thinking went into the decision on no-cost shipping, Richard said. "We feel it's a good business decision and, certainly, a very tangible benefit to our customers. The offer doesn't apply to Rush shipping orders, but all other orders will be shipped free of charge via UPS Standard Service."
Print Ltd chose UPS Standard Service, Richard said, because it is fast, dependable, and door-to-door—with delivery typically two to five business days following shipment, and guaranteed service on the scheduled delivery date.
Print Ltd are full-color process (offset) printers, using only Heidelberg offset presses and direct-to-plate equipment. "Traditional off-line commercial printers deliver equal quality" Richard said, "but they don't come close to matching our turnaround and prices. The internet drives major economies that we pass on to customers. Typically, we cut commercial printing costs by nearly fifty per cent."
The online printers produce brochures & sell sheets, business cards, business forms, envelopes, newsletters, letterhead, posters, presentation folders, catalogs and custom print orders, as well as promotional magnets and vinyl banners. "We print all requirements, from full-color process to simple black ink on white paper", Richard stated. "We're a full-service general and process color on-line printer, as well as a business forms manufacturer. We're proud of the quality of our work and the customer focus of our service. And we're proud to be a company that takes price-cutting initiatives such as these."
