Conclusion:

PsPrint offers low-priced stationery, and they have high-priced paper marketing materials, promotional materials and signs and banners.  They do not offer many promotional marketing materials, but they do offer calendars and magnets. PsPrint 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 uploading a design to be a complicated process than with most other services because there are a lot of steps you have to follow in order to upload a single file. They are one of the few providers that offer professional design help and a mailing service for some products (i.e. they will print, address, and mail the products for you). PsPrint has relatively high minimum order size for several of their products.

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

Design and Printing

PsPrint gives you the ability to upload your existing design and have it printed, but it’s a more complicated process than with most other services because there are a lot of steps you have to follow in order to upload a single file. PsPrint does not have pre-designed templates, nor do they have a design tool that lets you create your own design. They do have blank downloadable templates for brochures, flyers, and postcards and accept PDF, TIFF, JPG,PS, PSD, and EPS files for design uploads. PsPrint has professional help available for your while you’re creating a design, and the price for design help varies by product.

For small quantities, PsPrint uses digital printing, which 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. For large quantities, PsPrint uses offset printing which 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.

Banners

PsPrint can print banners in order sizes ranging from 1 to 50. The minimum order size meets our Market Standard, but the price of $79.95 per banner is much higher than our Market Standard of $60 per banner. Size options range from 1’ x 1’ to 8’ x 100’ in half-foot increments, and banners are available in both vertical and horizontal layouts. They do not offer banner stands or hangers.

Lawn Signs

PsPrint does not offer lawn signs at this time.

Posters

PsPrint can create posters in order sizes ranging from 25-20,000. This minimum order size is larger than our Market Standard of one item. The price for an order of 25 posters is $1,214.16, but the price per poster gets cheaper as the order size increases.PsPrint offers both horizontal and vertical layouts and a variety of size options (18”x24”, 22”x28”, 22”x30”, 24”x24”, 24”x36”, 24”x48”, 28”x38”, 36”x36”, 36”x48”, 36”x60”, and 36”x72”). Posters come with either a matte or glossy finish.

Shipping

PsPrint’s standard shipping takes 4 business days, which is faster than our Market Standard of one week. We found the shipping costs to be $9.34 to ship one banner and $25.83 to ship 25 posters, but the price varies depending on your location. They also have faster shipping options: next day, 2-day, and 3-day shipping through UPS.

Proofs & Samples

PsPrint offers free electronic proofs as well as hardcopy proofs through the mail, which meets our Market Standard. The price of the hardcopy proof depends on the print job. They will also send you paper samples if you request them, which meets our Market Standard as well.

Additional Signs

Besides banners and posters, PsPrint offers bumper stickers and window decals.

Customer Support

PsPrint has phone and email support available Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific. We experienced a wait time of 5 minutes over the phone and about 3 hours over email. Overall, we considered the quality to be above average, as the customer support representatives we spoke to were helpful, and fairly quick in responding to all questions.  They also offer a money-back guarantee, which we consider to be a Market Standard. The money-back guarantee is only applicable if the mistakes made on your print job are the vendor’s fault.
