Magnificent is the adjective that describes their service. I found them from scratch without any reference, and from day one, their pleasant and quick way of answering all my questions was great. They even sent me several samples of their prints for free. I ended up placing my order with them, and the quality and price left me pleasantly impressed. From my side, 100% recommended. Keep it up!

The calendars look nice. The support throughout the design and upload process was really great. Communication from your team was, too. Production speed was really fast. The calendars took a roundabout trip via UPS that delayed receipt by several days. That's not in your control. This is my second year for producing our photo club's calendar. A variety of templates and color/printing profiles were appreciated.

Ordered 50 books on July 4 - they were in hand a week later ! I was contacted the day after the order was submitted, to clarify a few items and they made suggestions. Proof was approved on a Monday, with a hard deadline two weeks later. Order shipped within days and was in hand by the end of the week. Books are well made, ink and color look great and the cost was 1/3 of Staples.

Wonderful Experience! This company cares! We made a coloring book for an event. I ordered the wrong kind of paper, and approved the proof. Instead of just printing, they called and told me before processing the order. Communication is amazing! Prices are stellar! I couldn’t believe how fast they shipped, and the shipping charges were 5x’s better than expected. I can’t recommend this company enough. Thank You!

I wanted to create a family history booklet and a friend suggested Printing Center USA. Never having done this before, I was very nervous and a bit intimidated, but from my first (of many!) phone calls, the staff walked/talked me through every segment of the process. Joshua, Christin and Roy were so patient, answering my every question, spurring me on and even staying on the phone with me, as I placed my order. I was utilizing old, black and white photos and worried about the quality, but was so impressed to find the final booklet's photos had so much clarity. Best of all, my order arrived a day ahead of time! The friend that referred me received a gift card and I got a discount on my first order. A professional company and a wonderful experience!

Our business booklets look beautiful and professional. I am certain that this is because of the proof process and expertise of the people I consulted with. There were a couple of issues with the initial proof that may have been due to the quality we submitted and yet their staff was able to make it right. We are very impressed and would highly recommend their service.

There were a lot of things that made this experience great! This was my first time printing anything as I am new to the graphic deign and print world. Emily Bragg and Felicity Bateman were incredibly patient with me as I asked 100 questions. I even accepted proof, then canceled it, and they just kept guiding me along the whole way. I learned some new printing vocabulary and I feel much more equipped to process orders again in the future! What's more, the final product is excellent!

I have now used this company two times to produce annual directories for my community. Both times, the product that was delivered was BEAUTIFULLY done, within our measly budget, and with a fast turnaround. The tools that they provide online help you ensure that the product will look just the way you want it to. Their staff are helpful and make useful suggestions as you go through your design process. My community plans to be using their services again in the future for our annual booklet, and we are now considering the possibility of having them also do a monthly newsletter, and any other printing needs we might come up with. I am a very happy customer, and highly recommend their services!

Printing Center USA have been doing our yearbooks for 3 years. Every year they knocked it out of the park. The price were great compare to other printing companies. The quality is impressive with their varieties of options. The communication and customer service were awesome. One of the employees even reached out to me to clarify proofs so that the yearbook would be the best it could be. Lastly, the delivery were accurate so that our school can have yearbook before the year end. A SEAMLESS production!

I was initially hesitant to place an order as I had been comparing prices among various companies for printing programs for our conference. Most companies were charging double the rates of Printing Center USA, which raised concerns about the quality. However, I took a chance on Printing Center USA, and I am delighted with the outcome. The programs I ordered exceeded my expectations in quality. Remarkably, I placed the order on a Thursday and received the delivery by the following Tuesday. Communication with their customer service team was seamless, with responses to my emails consistently within an hour. Printing Center USA has now become my preferred choice for all my printing requirements. I highly recommend placing your order with them; you will not be disappointed.

The online design tool was very easy to use. This ensured that all the graphics were at the appropriate resolution for printing. Customer service was excellent, staff responded to my queries sufficiently. While my product was being printed I needed to change the date of delivery, they made it happen without much ado. Their response was seamlessly efficient. I received my products on the day they said I would which was greatly appreciated. The print quality was excellent, the booklets were stacked neatly and in manageable bundles for easy transporting. Thanks to the staff for the great service and support.

I've been using PCSA for a number of projects, but the this last one was a large number of yearbooks I needed rush turnaround on. After I placed the order they called me back and said I should not rush printing (which I did), but rush shipping to save money and it would get here at the same time. What an incredible staff to actually look at my order, know they could ave me money, take the time to call me and even get me a refund on my pre-payment! The yearbooks look amazing as well! 44 pages and the easy to use online proofing system gave me confidence that they would be the correct order and all my text would be within the margins. Thank You!

This company has great communication. I received a proof of my work via email, found a mistake, was able to reject my proof and submit the correct version. They also gave me tips, such a as I selected the wrong cover for the yearbooks I wanted to print, and they helped me select the correct thickness. The yearbooks arrived in, I believe, 5 business days. They were sealed in plastic and looked professional. I am pleased with the final product and will be ordering again!

We received our catalogs with one page near the middle that had a printing glitch on our product images and the bottom (approx.) third of the same page was printed with a black background instead of blue like all the other pages in the catalog. We were informed by a customer service representative that if our images and text had been flattened in our original artwork file this would not have been an issue. Oddly, there was only one page near the middle of our catalog with this error which explains why it was easily overlooked during our approval process. It seems that if flattening images and text in our original file was the issue then every page would have been effected and the error would have been much easier for us to notice during the approval process. The catalog is still functional and we are using them. However, it is disappointing to see such a large blemish that showed up in the final product when it was not in our original artwork. We will be in direct communication via phone with Printing Center USA throughout the ordering process on future orders to clarify certain aspects of artwork files and hopefully insure that this does not happen again. Please note that this job gets 3 stars but Printing Center USA normally gets 5 stars from us on most projects!

The product was amazing, and we will definitely be using them again. This was our first booklet printing, and customer service was always receptive and helpful when I called. We went through several proof rounds, but each proof round found something that had been present in the first version, so I wish the first round had been more thorough. If it had, we would have been able to print faster because the 1-2 days in between slowed things substantially, and we almost missed our deadline date.
