1. Review the Price Guide
AmericasPrinter.com can handle any promotional print job you can think of. Our mission is to be your one stop promotional printing solution. We use the internet as our catalog and as an area to expose you to our capabilities. The Price Guide lists some of our cookie cutter products you will find in the store. However if you have a project that you do not see in this area give us a call. We would be happy to quote on anything from glow in the dark inks to metallic colors to complex die cutting.
2. Download the Order Forms
Once you've wandered around the price guide and have a good idea of what you want to order, it's time to download the proper order form and send the digital files. We use Acrobat Reader® as the format for reviewing & printing our order forms. The file format for Acrobrat Reader® is PDF or "Portable Document Format".Get Adobe Reader
3. Place order and fax
Complete the order and fax to our office at 714.521.5650. Be sure to include your Product choice, quantity, color ways and cost for each item ordered. In stating the "Job Name" it's important to note the main title or name as it appears on the printed product. The reason for this is when your job is printed and going to the cutting and finishing department, we need to identify your product on the press sheet.
