Easy to order, upload final artwork and selection of materials for publication. Our programs look GREAT. Only 'issue' is that when creating a quote for the job, it would change from one day to the next (requote on-line would result in different cost with same material/pages, etc.). But, PrintingCenterUSA personnel where helpful to resolve. We will CERTAINLY use this company again for next year's sports program.

Great option for making a photo zine or self published book. Great paper quality and options, and sizes. I've used magcloud in the past, and prefer printing center usa to them.

Printing Center USA always delivers a stellar product. Still confused by the pricing of booklet printing as it varies significantly every quarter, dropping a couple hundred and then rising again. Is all work being done in-house or is it being farmed out, thereby making sense of price fluctuations.

I used one of their templates to publish Football Program for High School. The program was easy to use. We received the programs within a week of submitting. I will recommend this company and I am sure we will use them again next year.

Did a great job at a reasonable price. I was concerned about what appears to be a lack of clarity around the advertised "turnaround time," which is elected and paid for in advance -- in my (extensive) experience, turnaround time means from receipt of files, whereas printingcenterUSA seems to mean once the proof is approved (?) -- which isn't apparent when selecting the needed turnaround time when placing the order. That said, our job was shipped earlier than promised so it all worked out fine. I might just suggest more clarity around the definition of turnaround prior to where customers have to select their timeframe when placing the order. Overall, we're very happy. Thanks!

Our national conference was on deadline and the conference program was pulling up the rear. I found Printingcenterusa.com with a Google search, contacted them, and was very pleased with the assurances I received---plus the price could NOT be beaten by any other printer either local or web-based. I was a bit skeptical about being able to meet the deadline but Printingcenterusa came through two days ahead of schedule! The final product was absolutely superb and surpassed our expectations. These folks are solid and dependable and I will definitely be calling on them again.

I was a little hesitant about ordering booklets online, but thought I would take the chance since your prices are good and due to the quality of the samples mailed to me. Thank you so much for the great work on the booklets. We are very pleased with them. After seeing the good job you did on our chartering ceremony booklet, our Regional Director is considering using PrintingCenterUSA for her printing needs. The national director and other chapters will be in attendance at the chartering ceremony. They may even decide to use you for their printing needs after seeing our booklets. G. Davis Houston, TX

Had an absolutely wonderful experience with PrintingCenterUSA. Their online design tool was easy to use, I spoke with customer service twice with questions and they were very courteous and eager to help. After completing our design and paying for the order I had my programs in hand in less than a week which was about 4 days sooner than promised. We will definitely be using them again for all of our future projects.

What I liked: they were completed quickly and fairly easy to put your designs in. The price was also very good. What I didn't like: the booklet design forces you to have 2 blank pages within the book that I think look very unprofessional. The blank pages are strangely placed within the booklet (ours were conference programs) to make them look like you made a mistake while designing them. Very strange. I think I would pay a little ore next time with another company not to have this.

This is my second year using Printing Center USA for my event booklets and I must say I am very very pleased. I love the ease of designing the booklet myself instead of having that extra expense of paying a graphic designer. Lastly, the finish product is amazing and the quality of the booklet is worth every penny.

This is the most efficient company I have ever used. There was a delivery issue and items were not deliver on time. I explained the issue and they refunded me the total cost paid. They even sent me a personal apology with a little dum dum lollipop attached and a note pad. I highly recommend Printing Center USA for the quality product they produce and GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE.

We ordered larger size booklets but for some reason, were told they couldn't include our border. So our booklets were made smaller than we wanted and the text is very small due to this size adjustment. Some of the pictures are grainy, we were told they would look alright on the printed page when we questioned the blurriness on the proof. Well, they don't look better by much. The quality seems good and the pricing was fair, but we're going with a local printer next time so we can see a physical proof before placing the order. We won't make the same mistakes. It did seem to take a long time from submission to receipt of our booklets too.

This was the worst experience I've ever had with a printing company. I haven't actually received the product yet, but since the survey was sent before they even shipped, I am reviewing on the ordering process and customer service. The first time I ordered from PringtingCenterUSA, the process was fairly quick and easy. This time I submitted an order nearly identical in every way (the document had an additional 4 pages for notes, but everything else was the same right down to the way the files were saved and submitted) and it took days of emailing back and forth with a very rude customer service rep before I could get a proof. I spend around $10,000 a year on printing, and due to my favorite company raising their prices, I was shopping around for competitive rates. However, thanks to the horrible service, I will not be using PrintingCenterUsa again. Also, the fact that the order status on the website is not accurate is a problem. When I am on a short deadline and receive an "ESTIMATED timeline" upon approval, I need a way to confirm the order is on schedule and shipped. When I inquired with Marci on whether or not my order had moved into the printing or shipping status she replied "Order status on the website is not accurate. That is why I sent this schedule" .... this schedule referring to the estimated timeline sent last week.

Customer service was EXCELLENT! When my shipment was delayed through UPS, Marci quickly took charge and had it sent overnight to ensure that I received my order in time for my event. My committee was very pleased with the finished product. The only reason I did not rate 5 Stars was because I would prefer a heavier weight paper for the cover.

The booklets turned out so nice! We were very impressed with the quality especially of the inside pages. In the past with a different printer, the inside pages have been produced on regular copy paper, but with Printing Center USA it was a total upgrade! The inside pages were a nice glossy stock. We are very pleased!

We were very pleased with our order. We tried another company before coming to Printing Center USA. The previous company kept sending the proof back stating we needed to make changes. Finally after several weeks we decided to use another company which was Printing Center USA. They completed our order with no issues and even went above and beyond to make sure our order was completed in time for our event.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the staff at PrinterCenterUSA for the fine work and rapid turn around time for my recent order. I had 100 color booklets 8x10 sized, made for my Mother's recent funeral service. I was more than pleased with the highest level of quality and the rapid manufacturing and shipping speed. Everyone who saw the booklets were pleased and several folks asked if the work was done locally, to which I clearly responded that it was done at your facility. Again , My family and I are very appreciative at the rapid turn around time and the high quality with which the order was handled. I look forward to having future products produced by your staff. Thank you very much. Steven Magras and the Magras family

PrintCenter provided fast service, and the order was fulfilled and mailed to our off-site meeting location in record time. I only wish that we could have planned a bit further in advance so the mailing charges did not entail overnight which can be a bit expensive. PrintCenter was very competitive in their pricing and responded quickly on Monday morning. Unfortunately I placed the order late night and the telephone and online contact is not available on weekends. The color and booklet layout were exactly as expected and the quality exceeded our expectations. We plan to use them in the future for similar projects.

I ordered 100 booklets of 8.5 x 11, 36 pages plus cover all color both sides. They were shipped in two days instead of three days which we were very surprised and very grateful. The colors of the pages and photos were all outstanding and brilliant. I have ordered booklets from several locate vendors over the years and these were just as good or better. The main reason we went with them was their cost to print and ship the booklets is about one-half to one third the prices I have been paying locally. I'm planning to use them again over the next several years. I know they will have at least one new customer from another organization in our area that saw our booklets and thought they were great. Thank You Printing Center USA.

As part of the Home and School Association for a Elementary school . We try to create a nice memory book for the kids. Every other company we have used requires to submit your final art work as early as April. All of our best events are through the end of May and beginning of June.. I luckily found printcenterusa online and with a 5 day turnaround..I had all the memory books in hand and delivered to our kids. From my first contact to final proof of what turned out to be an amazing book, the whole experience was amazing. Everyone I spoke to was so nice, Kevin set me up, Emily helped me with the super easy online design site and Mary made sure our books arrived safely. They truly cared about our little book. We will only be using printcenterusa from now on! Forever grateful, Jeana School 17 Clifton NJ

Printing Center USA was fabulous to work with. They printed our programs flawlessly and on-time. In fact, we received the shipment a day ahead of schedule. I would definitely use them again. The only slight negative was using the template for the program - it's a very small workspace and difficult to see the text sometimes. However, it didn't hinder me too much, and I was able to get a 20-page program booklet all configured in a few hours. And, of course, if you send them a pdf, or one of the other formats they accept, that wouldn't be an issue. In any event, I will definitely use them for future work.

Needed to design and print programs for my dance recital. Printing Center made it very easy. I used the design tool and was able to go in and out of the program as I needed to add images, graphics, text etc. to come up with the design. Best of all, I was looking at the proof as I worked on it. It was extremely easy to change colors, move pages around, fonts the whole nine yards. When it was time to place my order, it was already proofed and ready to go. Within a week I had my finished product and I Love It. Thank you Printing Center, you have a customer for life!

We used Printing Center USA to produce an end-of-season program for a high school softball team. We were pleasantly surprised with the end product and felt we received a very competitive price. The programs arrived a day before promised and were good quality. The online design tool was helpful in producing our document but being able to expand the active working page to something close to the full screen would make it much more useable. I had a little trouble reading the text on the screen because of the small size of the page display, making it a little difficult to proof. Overall we were very pleased and would definitely use this service again.

Terrific service and printing, especially for the price! I was a little nervous at first, their internet was down for one day, the day I was trying to upload my files to make the deadline for our delivery. I worked with Shauna, and she was great all the way through. The printed booklets (8.5 x 11, 72 pg booklet, 4/4) came on time, all beautifully printed. We will definitely​ use this company again, and I am pleased to recommend it.

My client continues to be pleased with the quality of the booklets. I do, however, have issues with the customer service I receive from Printing Center USA. If the booklets were not such good quality and priced better than I've found elsewhere, I would not use them again. Luckily I have other vendors with better pricing, turnarounds, and customer service for most of my other printed products.

Spiral Bound Book Printing

Spiral bound printing is a coil of a plastic continuous loop passing through a row of punched holes at the edge of the printed piece in a spiral. The binding can be on the left or top of the project depending on how the project is designed. Spiral bound coils are available in different colors and sizes. You cannot print on the spine or add or remove pages. Spiral binding is great for manuals, directories, annual reports, calendars and many other types of spiral bound printing.

Wire-O Bound Book Printing

Wire-O binding is similar to spiral binding. It is a metal coil that passes through a row of punched holes at the edge of the printed piece. The binding can be on the left or top of the project depending on how the project is designed. Wire-o bound books are a series of parallel wire loops attached along a wire. Wire-O binding is great for journals, notebooks, cook books, directories, annual reports and many other types of wire-o bound books that will lay flat or wrap back around themselves.

FILE CHECKLIST:

Bleed, Trim, and Safety:

There are three main elements to know when setting up a document with a bleed. They are the bleed line, trim line, and safety line.

Bleed Line: 1/8" (.125)

One important custom printing term to know is a bleed. Bleed refers to an extra 1/8" (.125) of image that extends beyond the trim area of your printing piece. The project is printed on an oversized sheet that is cut down to size with the appearance that the image bleeds off the edge of the paper.

Trim Line:

Trim line indicates where to trim the printed sheet or where the edge of the paper is to ensure that the edges of the printed document are printed correctly. Similar to register or crop marks. The trim line is the final document size.

Safety Line:

The safety line or inner margin is the area in which to keep all important elements (text, logo, and/or content) within to prevent them from trimming off. All important elements should be at least 1/8" (.125) inside the edge of the trim line. The cutting of your printed piece is done in large stacks and may vary from the top and the bottom of the stack.

Framed Border:

All borders need to be 3/16" within the Trim Line as well as 1/8" extending out over the bleed line (Blue Frame).

Fold Line:

Templates also include fold marks that indicate where the fold will be. It is best to line up your panels with the folding marks to ensure the fold being in the correct spot on the panel in final production.

 




Accepted Files: .pdf, .tiff, .jpeg .psd (photoshop), .ai (illustrator), .eps (illustrator or photoshop), .indd (InDesign)

The recommended file is a PDF file but we will accept high resolution (300dpi) .tiff, .jpeg or the original source file from the following programs Photoshop (.psd), Illustrator (.ai or .eps), and InDesign (.indd).

If working in a program not mentioned files must be exported as a PDF.

EXAMPLE: PDF conversion instructions
 

Recommended Image Resolution: 300 dpi

File and/or Image resolution should be set at 300 dpi to ensure that the final document is not pixelated (fuzzy) when printed.

Enlarging an image will lower the resolution while reducing an image will increase the resolution. Enlarging an image in a layout is NOT recommended. Images that are less than 300 dpi could reproduce poorly looking fuzzy or pixelated.

Images from the internet are not recommended, as most images are only 72 dpi.

An unfavorable image cannot be resaved as a different type of file. For example, you cannot place a gif file in Photoshop and resave it as an EPS file. This does not change the compatibility of the file. If you have to use low-resolution images we will print only after you consent to the quality.

 

Required Color Mode: CMYK

CMKY (cyan, magenta, yellow, and black) is a color system called Full Color Printing. Most commercial printers use this process. RBG (red, green, and blue) is the color process that your computer monitor uses to display color. It is important to convert your file to the CMYK color process before printing as it may cause a color shift durning the transition and give you unexpected results. All files submitted that are not CMYK, will be converted over before printing. If your project is color sensitive, it is recommended that you request a hard copy proof to ensure the end result is to your specifications.

EXAMPLE: RBG displays digitally and CMYK for print.
 

Font and Transparency:

We recommend that all transparencies be flattened before file submission. We also ask that you set your fonts to outlines prior to file submission. Not flattening or outlining fonts can cause some items to fall off during file preparation for printing. Any files submitted without these things being done may result in items dropping out from your artwork during the conversion process needed to prepare your artwork for printing.
