In photo copying there are no real start-up costs and each printed piece costs about the same, no matter how many are printed. In offset printing, there are start-up costs for film and plate preparation and preparing the press with ink, but the printed piece keeps getting less expensive the more you produce. As a rule of thumb at about 1,000 copies, the cost of offset printing starts going down while the cost of photo copying stays the same.

At your request, we will provide a cost estimate to assist you in determining a project budget. Average turnaround time for an estimate is 24 hours. However, estimates may take up to three days to prepare if we need to contact an outside vendor for special paper or supplies. The accuracy of an estimate is dependent on the information we receive from you. As is customary in the printing industry, actual cost may vary within 10 percent. Estimates are valid for only 30 days due to fluctuating paper prices.
