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. You can create your own design using their tool for banners and lawn signs. Their design tool provides a WYSIWYG editor with drag-and-drop text and image manipulation and shows cut-and-bleed lines. 123Print also offer 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.
