Explore the Limitless Possibilities of Custom Printing

Looking for a specific combination in the size, shape, and material of your printed promotions? Need an exact quote for your custom job? Our custom printing page offers a wide variety of choices for small and large marketing collaterals. Combine several width and height measurements, choose from cardstock and paper optionsor add folding or scoring to brochures to create the brochure, flyer, or poster you have in mind. You can also create vinyl or fabric banner signs in your choice of size and finish. Print in 1-4 business days, depending on how soon you need the orderNot sure where to begin? Here’s a guide on maximizing what’s available.


How to Customize Large to Small Scale Print Products

Follow these steps to create the custom printing product you need for every kind of promotion: 


Order an offset printing or sign product. 

  • Offset printing is the technique used to transfer an inked image from a plate to a rubber blanket, and then onto the printing surface. It ensures high-quality output for large quantities. It is the method used for bulk printing orders such as brochures, flyers, posters, postcards, and business cards. 
  • Sign printing is for larger format displays such as banners, window clings, yard signs, plastic signs, flags, and magnets. The sign you print will depend on the material and the size.  


Combine width and length specs that will garner attention at a glanceWidths start from 2” up to 26”. Heights also go from 2” to as tall as 18”. If you want to see how the final design will appear before it’s printed, select “Wait – I want to receive and approve a free PDF proof” after uploading your file. 


You can also use our online design tool to load a blank canvas in the size selected. 


Print on sturdy paper or cardstock to showcase the reliability or luxury of your brand. Promoting a new product line or a store opening to a bigger audience? Let customers feel they can trust your company with thick paper or cardstock. Coat paper with elegant matte or gloss finishes highlighting the premium quality of your items. Below are the sturdiest options available for paper and cardstock: 

  • 80 lb. paper has a similar feel to a magazine cover. It’s slightly thicker than standard paper and comes in gloss or matte coating to protect the surface. 
  • 100 lb. paper is a little thicker than most magazine covers but a little thinner than cardstock. Recommended for brochures, flyers, and other promotions customers can keep on hand.  
  • 14 pt. cardstock is the standard material used for business cards. It can withstand multiple handling and comes in coatings that protect it from fingerprints 
  • 16 pt. cardstock is slightly thicker than the 14 pt. Recommended for business cards or other promotional tools handed out to VIP clients. It gives them the impression you value their business, while also putting your best “face” forward in introducing yourself. 
  • 17 pt. cardstock is the most rigid cardstock available and comes in an uncoated, writable surface. It has the most upscale vibe and the elegant texture gives it that extra high-end feel.  


Print a set of cut-to-size stickers or labels to display indoors. Need a set of individual labels to quickly apply on your products? Order 70 lb. label in matte, gloss, or high-gloss UV so that your item and company name are easy to read from a glance.  


Signs come in the following materials, depending on how they’re displayed: 

  • For paper signs: semi or high gloss that suit temporary displays in frames or inside the store. 
  • Vinyl in standard 13 oz., 15 oz, or 9 oz. mesh that lasts outdoors. The mesh is built to withstand wind, while the 13 and 15 oz. last years on display outside. 
  • Static cling or perforated adhesive vinyl for window clings. The removable structure makes it perfect for temporary signs and for reapplying in other areas. 
  • Magnetic stock for placing on your car while it’s making deliveries. 
  • Canvas for high-resolution photos or artwork displays. 
  • Adhesive fabric for displays on walls and other interiors.

Special Custom Printing Services to Elevate Your Advertising

For marketing materials like brochures, flyers, and postcards, you can add the following special features to further your customization: 

  • Folds that range from 2-, 3-, to 4-panel folds. Note that certain folds like an accordion, double gate and parallel, and the roll fold only come scored or show the markers for folding 
  • Perforation to set apart a special discount or coupon customers can use on their next purchase. It also works for correspondences on return forms. 
  • Rounded corners to make the corners of your postcard or business card sleeker. 
  • Hole drilling in 1/8”, 3/16”, and ¼” diameters if you need to bind the information with rings. You can also add them to hang tags or anything that will be displayed similarly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to get what you want This works well for non-standard jobs - however it should be stated somewhere in the tool that your .jpg art needs to be exactly the size of the finished product if you want a specific amount of "air" or "white space" from the edge of the paper. For example, don't upload a logo and think you can then say "I want it at the top of the card" - there is no section for comments or thumbnail examples. And don't include a blueline edge to show the paperstock edge or the computer will think that is part of your art.
