Ask For Samples

If you are at all particular about your choice of printer and are not familiar with their work, then it is not unusual to ask for some samples, and it is helpful to be able to describe what type of printing you intend to contract yourself. This will give you a clear idea of whether the printer can handle your type of image and what quality level you can expect. You may be asked to state an intention of what volume level you can afford and the samples generally should be returned, but the proof is in the printing and any printer with the mettle to handle your needs will be glad to show you their work.
