Everything you ever wanted to know about Commercial Printing (and then some).
...And what sets Maui Print Shop apart from the competition and the smart solution for price, quality, environmental footprint and turnaround time!
Commercial Printing comes down to 3 important factors:
- 1. PRICE Your average Maui Printing presses keep their pricing competitive by utilizing lower quality papers, inks and coatings that are no thicker than several sheets of ordinary paper, they are also unable to seal the color, improve the shine and protect against the elements by applying a UV coating that repels moisture, fading, cracking and peeling. Color calibration with some of Maui's aging presses is not guaranteed, and several clients have reported color matching and density issues that look nothing like the original. In addition, to keep costs competitive, many Maui Printing Presses require the printing to be done on a "Gang Run" (waiting until a enough jobs accumulate to entirely fill up a press run so there is no wasted space once the press begins to print). This brings the average 3.5" x 2" business card cost down for a single-sided card on 100 lb. non-UV-coated stock (about half the thickness of Maui Print Shop's 16pt stock). Want to add backside color printing? It almost doubles the cost on these antiquated Maui presses! At Maui Print Shop, all of our printed materials are full color, single OR double sided, full-bleed (image runs off the edge), UV Gloss, Matte or Aqueous Coated, directly printed on up to 16 point extra thick premium cardstock; printed faster and cheaper than the competition!
- 2. STOCK (Ink, Paper, Glossy Coating). We print on recycled stocks, using soy-based inks and are always looking to limit our carbon footprint as much as possible.Our ability to print on 16 pt. glossy card stock (almost as thick as a credit card) and utilize UV coating (ensuring higher gloss, better color, as well as fade and moisture resistance) comes standard on every order, and Matte (non-shiny) stock is also available. Linen papers are also available for letterhead, envelopes, etc. We also offer a spot Silver ink (PMS877C).
- 3. TURNAROUND TIME Maui Print Shop guarantees your printing will be printed, cut, folded and in the mail via UPS 2 Day Delivery within 5-7 business days; usually sooner. *(Some tri-fold brochures require a 7-9 day turnaround). As opposed to the average Maui Printing Companies keeping their pricing competitve by utilizing "Gang Runs" (waiting until the press fills up with enough orders to make it economical to run the press and stay competitively priced.) This can delay turnaround times up to 1-3 WEEKS!).
"I am always proud to hand a client my business card. I know that the superior quality and craftsmanship makes an immediate impression, and always reflects on my company. We have used Maui Print Shop for over 6 years and will definitely continue to use them for all of our business printing needs!"
"Mark, the business cards have arrived and they look great! I have already been handing them out left and right. I really enjoy having a high quality card to represent my business, it is surprising when people hand me their cards and they are not of the same quality. Thank you again, I will hand these out and when i need more I'll let you know!!"
