Most authors have their favorite companies from which they order bookmarks, postcards, and other promotional materials. I’d like to share three of my online favorites with you, and hope you’ll add your favorites to the list by leaving a comment.
The first is PrintingForLess.com. In 2007, I designed my bookmarks for The Prairie Grass Murders, and this fine Montana company did a top notch printing job at a price I could afford. The bonus in the deal was the excellent follow-up from the team that handled my little project. I was kept informed by e-mail, and after I my ordered was shipped, I received a phone call to find out if I had received the bookmarks as scheduled and if I was happy with the company’s work. Most definitely. I’ll be giving them a bookmark order for The Desert Hedge Murders soon, and I may purchase postcards this time as well.
The other company that delivered an excellent product was zazzle.com. I didn’t know about this business until my son-in-law cleverly designed a coffee mug with my book cover on it and gave it to me for Christmas. I ordered more mugs to give as gifts and to include in auction donation packages for a couple of the mystery conventions I attended.
The third company I’ve used is VistaPrint.com. This is the place to go for free business cards. Choose from over forty designs, fill out the online form, and place your order. You pay for shipping and processing. For a reasonable price, you can expand the design choices. I chose the free option and was quite satisfied.
