Specialty Printing: Starting Prices and Turnaround Times

We like to be transparent with our pricing so that we can make sure we're a great fit for your project.
Here are some starting prices to give you a better idea of doing more specialized print techniques with us.
We have focused heavily on our digital print techniques and partner with long time friends to complete traditional specialty print techniques. 

We put basic business card pricing because it's one of the smaller products we offer.
We can produce most of these techniques on almost any product.

Made in our Hollywood, Los Angeles facility

We're proud to have many different ways to delivery specialty products within our facility in the heart of Hollywood, Los Angeles. We're able to produce top quality products at a fraction of the cost of traditional print processes.

It's not perfect for everything (2 sided printing with ink bleeding will cause the back edge to have a lip) but it makes for some creative printing techniques.

Starting Cost $150+tax for digital die cutting portion only.

Speciality Processes Made in Los Angeles County

We're trying to have a laser focus on digital manufacturing with our facility in Hollywood, Los Angeles, but that doesn't mean we can't handle top end projects. Our partners in LA County have been working with us a combined 50 years so we have very strong relationships and can get projects turned around faster than many companies that do their work in house.
