Design and Printing

123Print lets you upload your existing design as JPEG, PNG, BMP, TIFF, PDF, GIF, or EPS files. We found uploading a design to be a very easy process. 123Print provides predesigned templates for flyers and postcards, but not for brochures. 123Print allows you to create your own design using their design tool for brochures, flyers and postcards. Their design tool provides a WYSIWYG editor with drag-and-drop text and image manipulation and shows cut-and-bleed lines. 123Print does not allow you to download blank templates that you can edit with your own software, which does not meet our Market Standard. 123Print offers the services of professional designers whose price depend upon the product desired.

123Print offers digital printing and not offset printing. Offset printing is a process in which a plate makes an inked impression on a rubber-blanketed cylinder, which in turn transfers it to the paper. Offset printing offers higher image quality, is more cost effective when ordering large quantities, and is better for larger prints. Digital printing is a process in which the data and images are printed directly from the computer onto paper. It has shorter turnaround time, is more cost effective when ordering small quantities, and is better for customized printing.
