    Hi,
    Just wondering if any print company can and will price match Printcarrier.com
    I've got used to their very low prices, but grown very bored of their pathetic levels of service..!
    Specifically, these are the items I order the most:
    5,000 x A5 flyers
    5,000 x A6 flyers
    500 x full colour A2 posters
    1,000 x full colour A2 posters

    I'm also looking for cheap short runs (5-30 generally) of A1 and A0 posters. Black print on Dayglo paper and also full colour print on white paper.

    Cheers
    Nick

    Why would anyone price match Print Carrier and then offer better customer service? PC is cheap because they mess stuff up and then never get back to you when you complain - I know, I have been there a few times myself. Don't mind paying a little more for better customer service to be honest. You get what you pay for - as they say.

    Hi guys, thanks for your reply. Was half expecting that kind of response. They do set their prices quite aggressively. I can't believe it would cost them that much more to not treat their customers with such utter contempt though..!
    Anyway, Boss hog- here's the prices. Even if you can't quite match print carrier's prices, I'd probably pay a little more for a better service. Haven't find anyone who'll even come close yet though. The day glo prices on the other hand, I'm only interested if you can beat the prices, as I'm happy with service at Jamjar. They upped their prices a little while back though, so I'm looking for anyone who can beat their prices.
    Thanks

    Sorry we are quite a bit off on those, the only one I can get within £10 of is the 5k A6, we are £50 more on the A5 and £40/£50 more on all the others. We don't offer Day Glo.

    Ok. No worries. So exactly how much could you do 5,000 x A6s for? And would that be inc or exc vat and delivery?
    Thanks

    I've just had a look at their website and from what I see is their prices are ridiculously low. I don't think I would even like to try and price match their prices let alone beat them. Sorry
