WAY better than the local print shop wanted. They wanted $150 for 5 at 9x5.75
I didn't realize that included shipping. That's not bad, I guess.
Were they going to print the covers on gold or something?! 30 minutes w/ an escort? I mean... HOLY HELL!!
Don't be turned-off by local print shops though. That one could have screwed up on their pricing or they don't normally print small quantity books and didn't know what to charge.
Online companies are ok to use, but I would be careful. I had a customer call me up a few months ago to order business cards. He originally placed an order online for some business cards. He got his order and they had printed their company logo on the back of his cards. Needless to say, he was pissed. He had one of his customers actually call him a cheapskate.
When he called me up, I designed a custom logo and printed them on a nice UV coated-stock. He called me again a few days ago and told me that quite a few of his customers were raving about the cards. There's nothing better than hearing from a satisfied customer! That call really made my day!
