Absolutely gorgeous comic books. I was a bit nervous because some of my text went right up to or slightly over the "safe print area," but their printing/cutting was so precise that it didn't matter! Will definitely be using them again in the future.

This is an excellent printing company. I’m a first time customer of theirs, although I have dealt with many printing companies in the past. I had booklets printed recently with no hassles whatsoever and the price was very fair. I am very pleased with their quality too.

The magazines are gorgeous! The quality is amazing! The service and turnaround was prompt! I can’t rightfully give less than five stars, but we wish there was an option for lighter weight paper as the only two choices were 100# or 80# and overseas shipping nearly destroyed any profit to be made.
