Print Lion Comparison and Review



Pros:

  • Professional design help available
  • Mailing service available (The provider will print, address, and mail the products for you.)
  • Standard shipping time of 4 business days   (Market Standard is one week)
  • Faster shipping options available: Next Day, 2-Day, 3-Day

Cons:

  • Difficult to upload design

Conclusion:

Print Lion offers low cost promotional materials, stationery and signs and banners, and they offer average-priced paper marketing materials. They don’t offer many promotional materials, but they do offer calendars. Print Lion only lets you upload and print a design you’ve already created and does not offer a design tool to help you create your design. We found it somewhat difficult to upload your design, since your file must be in PDF or EPS form or you’ll have to fill out a form to have your order processed manually. Print Lion is 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). Print Lion has larger than average minimum order sizes, which start at 500 for brochures, flyers, postcards, letterhead and posters.

We found their customer support to high quality. Print Lion has a standard shipping time of 4 business days, which is faster than our Market Standard shipping time of one week. 

Design and Printing

Print Lion lets you upload your existing design with any file type, but PDF and EPS are preferred. We found uploading a design to be difficult. If your file is not in PDF or EPS form, you may have to fill out a form and have it processed manually. Print Lion does not provide predesigned templates or allow you to create your own design with their software for flyers, postcards, or brochures. Print Lion does provide downloadable templates so that you can create your design with your own software to upload. Professional help is available for design. Email Print Lion for a quoted price on design.

Print Lion 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.
