FedEx Office Comparison and Review



Pros:

Cons:

  • Expensive banners

Conclusion:

FedEx Office offers low-priced paper marketing materials and stationery, and they have high-priced promotional materials and signs and banners. FedEx Office offers a range of printed products across all categories. FedEx Office lets you upload and print an existing design, and they also offer a design tool to help you create your design for some products. We found it very easy to upload an existing design, but they do not offer a free PDF proof of your design or free paper samples, which we consider to be market standards. FedEx Office also offers a mailing service (i.e. they will print, address, and mail the products for you).

We found their customer support to be above average quality. FedEx Office has a standard shipping time of 7 business days, which meets our Market Standard shipping time of one week. FedEx Office is one of the only providers we reviewed that offers a free shipping option.

Design and Printing

FedEx Office lets you upload your existing design as PDF, AI, PSD, BMP, CDR, CLK, or G files. We found uploading a design to be a very easy process. FedEx Office allows you to create your own design using their design tool for letterhead, greeting cards, and envelopes. Their design tool provides a WYSIWYG editor with drag-and-drop text and image manipulation and shows cut-and-bleed lines.

FedEx Office 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.

Letterhead

FedEx Office offers letterhead in order sizes of 250-2,000 which meets our Market Standard minimum order size of 250. 250 pieces of letterhead will cost you $134.99, and the price per item decreases as you increase your order size. Letterhead is printed on matte finished paper.

Greeting Cards

FedEx Office offers greeting cards in order sizes of 20-1,000, which meets our Market Standard minimum order size of 250. 20 greeting cards will cost you $27.99, and the price per item decreases as you increase your order size. Greeting cards are printed on glossy paper or linen. FedEx Office offers double-sided printing in grayscale for free, or in full-color for an additional $10.

Envelopes

FedEx Office offers envelopes in order sizes of 250-2,000, which meets our Market Standard minimum order size of 250. 250 envelopes will cost you $109.99, and the price per item decreases as you increase your order size.

Shipping

Standard shipping takes 7 business days, which meets our Market Standard, and is free, which is a plus. 3-day expedited shipping is available for $30. Shipping costs may vary with location.

Proofs & Samples

FedEx Office does not offer PDF proofs of your design or free paper samples, which does not meet our Market Standard.

Additional Stationery

In addition to letterhead, greeting cards and envelopes, FedEx Office offers address labels, folders, invitations, and notepads.

Customer Support

Phone and email customer are available 24/7, but live chat is not available. We experienced no wait time with phone support, and email support responded to our inquiries within two hours. We found quality of customer support to be above average. FedEx Office offers a money-back guarantee, which meets our Market Standard.
