Hey Geekers and Geeklets,

I've just recently gone from salon based to mobile after being in the industry for about 10 years. I need some price lists making quick but can't afford a printers at the mo after setting up all my equipment, so I'm going to have a go at making my own. Has anyone else tried and been happy with the results?
This is just tempory as I know I won't be able to make the amount I will need.

I made 25 tri fold ones on the computer to give out when clients come to me (im home based) i also got some free flyers from Vistaprint (check their website frequently as they have free offers all the time but only on certain things) and it had my info and offers on the front and a price list on the back. You only pay the vat & postage which is pittance and they are very good quality! Xx

I use Vista print also. I only get them when on offer and once you use them you get offers sent all the time as a "special customer". :wink2:

Vista print are good, once you've designed your price list and ordered once you will get loads of offers. I always wait until they offer me 25 free which is every other week or so and then I order and just pay the postage.

I use vistaprint! You don't even have to do an order to get the special deals by email. Just go in their website and sign up for the newsletter or whatever it's called and you will start receiving promos. I ONLY use them when they have good deals :p and I get deals sent to me almost every day :)

As everyone else says - vistaprint. Once you order once they send you offers all the time!

If you are going to do some of your own id recommend a programme like smartdraw or Microsoft Publisher. They have templates that you can work from. The only thing I will say is that your designs in these programmes will only print 'right' from you own home printer. A large printing company would have to change the type of file and the sizes of your page which could distort images and mess your layout up. Good luck with whichever you do :d

I see the last three ladies have had logos done by me :)

Out of interest- do you use the logos I did for you on the price lists you're designing? do you feel it makes them a bit more pro?

I happen to think printing your own price lists its a bit of a false economy really- but that's the design snob in me probably. I understand its horses for courses!

I use vista for business cards. I used the space on the back to add a price list. It's small but effective an low cost!
