PsPrint Comparison and Review



Pros:

  • Professional design help available
  • Standard shipping time of 4 business days (Market Standard is one week)
  • Faster shipping options available: Next Day, 2-Day, 3-Day

Cons:

  • Provider does not offer t-shirts or mugs
  • Difficult to upload design
  • Minimum order size of 25 for calendars (Market Standard is one item)

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 accept PDF, TIFF, JPG,PS, PSD, and EPS files for dseign uploads. PsPrint has professional help available for your while you’re creating a design, and thepricevaries 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.

T-Shirts

PsPrint does not offer t-shirts at this time.

Mugs

PsPrint does not offer mugs at this time

Calendars

PsPrint offers calendars in order sizes ranging from 25-20,000. The minimum order size of 25 is larger than our Market Standard of one calendar. It costs $524.94 for 250 calendars. You have the option of getting either matte or glossy finish on PsPrint’scalendars.

 

Shipping

PsPrint’s standard shipping time is 4 business days, which is faster our Market Standard of one week. The shipping price for 25 calendars is $13.04 to our offices in Austin, Texas, but the shipping cost will depend on how far you are from their location. They have faster shipping options: next day and 2-day shipping.

Proofs & Samples

They offer a free PDF proof, which meets our Market Standard, and they will mail you a hardcopy proof if you wish. The price of these hardcopy proofs varies depending upon the print job. They also will send you paper samples if you request them, which meets our Market Standard as well.

Additional Promotional Materials

In addition to calendars PsPrint also makes event tickets and magnets.

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.
