The best paper for magazine printing depends on your budget, preferences, and distribution method. We recommend an 80# cover paper for the cover and 80# text for the inside pages. However, if weight becomes a concern with mailing, 70# uncoated is also a very popular option!

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.

What a great and amazing company and business model. I submitted my work to their site. I was able to view it to see what changes I needed to make. It also gave me warnings of resolution, different page sizes and such. A project manager is assigned when you place the order. My original submittal for my order needed more pages (gotta love last minute changes from the team), and they changed my order accordingly. Along the way, I received texts, calls and emails to make sure everything was ok while we were in the proof stage again (due to the adds). Once I got the final approval from the team, they had the job printed and back to me in a week (P.S. I did pay for the three day shipping). The outcome was better than I expected. An absolutely wonderful experience.

I needed an order in hand in 5 days of a 32 page booklet for a disc golf tournament caddy book. None of my conventional printing companies could do it in the required time, nor did they show any desire to accommodate. So I found PrintingCenterUSA and called them after quickly pricing what I thought I needed. A live person (Emily) answered on the second ring and was very helpful in determining the product I needed and deciding the most economical way to place the order (ie. 3 day turnaround and next day shipping was less expensive than 2 day turnaround and second day shipping). The next day I reached Cheryl. She helped me finalize the order and navigate through 3 rounds of proofs (all problems were self induced) and despite the art changes I needed to make, she still ensured that the job will be done on time. She personally called me back numerous times just to keep the project on the projected timeline. And when I called her she recognized my phone number, answered my call by name. Tremendous customer service all around. It's great to deal with a company committed to this type of service. I haven't yet got the product but if it matches the quality of the service, I will be extremely satisfied. I only gave five stars. Mainly because I couldn't give six.

Wow! I needed some workbooks for my online program and had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I uploaded my file, blindly chose some settings, and then got a call from Joshua Shapiro. He was incredibly helpful and saved me a huge headache since I had selected paper that you couldn't even write on. He helped me choose the right paper stock, updated my order, and walked me through the entire process. I now have my workbooks and THEY. ARE. BEAUTIFUL. And at a much lower cost than I paid at other printing companies. This is the ONLY printing company I'll use.
