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 provides predesigned templates for flyers, postcards, and brochures. FedEx Office allows you to create your own design using their design tool for t-shirts and calendars. Their design tool includes a WYSIWYG editor with drag-and-drop text and image manipulation and shows cut-and-bleed lines. FedEx Office does not allow you to download blank templates that you can edit with your own software, which does not meet our Market Standard.

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.

T-Shirts

FedEx Office offers t-shirt order sizes of 1-100 t-shirts, which meets our Market Standard minimum order size. A single shirt costs $21.99, and the price per shirt gets cheaper as your order larger amounts. FedEx Office offers cotton t-shirts in sizes from S-XXL.

Mugs

FedEx Office does not offer mugs at this time.

Calendars

FedEx Office offers calendars in order sizes from 1-100 calendars, which meets our Market Standard minimum order size. The price for a single calendar is $18.99, and the price per calendar gets cheaper as you increase your order size. Calendars come in a glossy or premium glossy paper finish.

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 Promotional Materials

In addition to t-shirts and calendars, FedEx Office offers pens, hats, magnets.

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.
