Do these prices seem okay? The total cost is abit more then I was expecting.. :yawn:

The prices are very good you are getting full colour and a small amount printed the more you buy the cheaper the less etc.and books have a huge set up charge so it would work out better if you bought 10 instead of one P.S I work for a printing company in dublin

Used to be involved in the Graphic Design business and the price isn't too bad. Printers are very competitive just look for a company near the one that gave you a quote and tell them you have a quote from down the road. 99% of the time they will beat it.

Also you might as well have 500 A3 posters as the paper cost will be next to nothing.

Thanks for the info guys..... Hope to finish work eariler today and visit a few local ones. ;)

The booklet seems to be hard to get at a decent price. It is basically a 12 page A4 word document that I would like stapled.

What about getting the pages printed or print them youself and then just put them in a nice folder, partners sell them for about £2.00, I put my CV's in them because they look so much better and the £2.00 is nothing compared to how much they stand out compared to others.

something like this : Folder example but have a look around and there are some good ones. you could spend upto £20.00 and have a leather one with plastic windows for each page.

The pages will cost £2.00 for each book, max, to have printed and the cost of the folder ontop is alot less than £450.00.

just a sujestion

Thanks for the suggestion mate :)

I am thinking of doing something similar like you said.

Get the front cover printed in full colour/glossy and then print the rest of the inside stuff just black and white on standard 80gsm paper. Should be alot cheaper I hope! :)

Been looking at a few of the online printing companies and they do seem very well priced too. :)
