Collating & Comparing Suppliers

Dear all,

Now my level of print work is increasing the selection of suppliers i'm using for various jobs is widening.

How do people manage pricing/spec? Is it literally a case of online lookup at each supplier/phone quote or does anyone have a system/spreadsheet dump of prices?

Thoughts on managing suppliers most welcome.

Do what the wise man above says... I try and use the same few print providers again and again. That way I get a good price and good service - which in the end is more important.
90% of my print work goes through one supplier at the mo, whos local and i have an excellent relationship with.

For the bread and butter he's brilliant, but for stuff like lamination and 'nicer' finishes the prices are not as good.

Therefore trying to add a couple more printers to my trusted printer list, but realise will be some product overlap.
