Online printing is a way to get documents printed in bulk and delivered, simply by submitting files or designs online. Companies that offer online printing among their services include FedEx and UPS, while some companies also specialize in the service, such as Vistaprint and PS Print.
The process eliminates a person having to physically go to a printing shop with their designs, and then later having to go back in again to pick printed documents up. Now a person can simply go online, upload the designs to be used, pay and then wait for the documents to be delivered to their home or business. Online printing in many instances is also much cheaper than using a typical printing shop, as the large online companies can get products in such bulk that the savings in material costs are passed on to the customer.
Many companies that specialize in the service also offer customizable options. Some examples include a choice of paper type, color, size and even what type of ink is used in the printing of the documents. The types of documents that can be printed vary, but most sites that offer online printing are able to print brochures, banners, catalogues, menus, direct-mail pieces, business cards, letterheads, stickers, magnets and much more.
