Conclusion:

Uprinting offers low-priced paper marketing materials, promotional materials and stationery, and they have high-priced signs and banners. They do not offer many promotional marketing materials, but they do offer calendars, gift certificates and magnets. UPrinting lets you upload and print an existing design, and they also offer a design tool to help you create your design for some products. They are also one of the few providers that offer professional design help and a mailing service (i.e. they will print, address, and mail the products for you).

We found their customer support to be average quality. Their phone support was extremely helpful, but their email support does not always respond. UPrinting has a standard shipping time of 3 days, which is faster than our Market Standard shipping time of one week.

Design and Printing

UPrinting lets you upload your existing design and have it printed. We found it easy to upload your design. Uprinting accepts these files types: PDF, JPG, TIFF, PNG, EPS, Illustrator, Publisher, DOC, JPEG, PSD, DOCX. UPrinting does not offer any pre-designed templates for their brochures, flyers, or postcards, but you can create your own design using their design tool. Their design tool includes: a WYSIWYG editor, drag-and-drop text and image capability, and cut and bleed lines, so you can see exactly where your paper will be cut. They do not offer any blank templates that you can download and edit with your own software. UPrinting offers professional design help where they will create a design for you. The price for this service depends on the product you want to design.

UPrinting offers both digital and 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.
