    Hi All,
    My name is Nirooshan and I am just starting up a new online business. In order to do so, I need to have my printable artwork turned into some nice business cards and flyers. Can anybody recommend a nice and obviously cheap printer in London?

    Thank you

    Offer one-stop catalog printing service, half price!

    I am Leo from Rainbow Printing Co.. Many people are complaining that they can't find good commercial printers to help their books out. Firstly the printing cost is too high in some printing company; secondly it's really hard for them to choose one from the printing company list online.

    In fact you could try to find one in China. First the printing cost should be much lower because our cheap labors, second we guarantee the printing quality, which you can get informed of many people who do printing business with China.

    If anyone who are interested in printing in China, I can help you. I work in a professional printing company in China-Rainbow Printing Co. Ltd. It has more than a decade's history. The clients we are working with now include Lenovo, Hitachi, Konka, ITAT, Wyeth etc. and some well known publisher like Disney. Our main products are hardcover book, soft cover book, magazine, calendar, catalog, poster and paper packing box etc.

    Also Shenzhen is an important and new-built seaport, sharing the same board with Hong Kong, with many sea routes and flight courses to famous ports in the world. Transportation is very convenient, especially to Hong Kong, only takes 40 minutes by train.   
    Sincerely hope to corporate with you!

    Leo - having business cards and flyers printed in China seems pretty extreme??! Can you really ship such small orders for less then the cost of printing locally???

    Hi Nirooshan, Im based in eastlondon near Tower Bridge in Whitechapel.

    We do printing, if you still do require printing let me know. I'll try to sort you out.

    Obviously the main question is "Whats the quantity you need?"

    yes, by our cost control, the printing cost and shipping cost together will be much less than print in the US. We are printing some big books for famous authors, the printing and shipping cost together is half of US price.

    But the original question of this thread was:
    What's it cost to ship a small box of 1000 or 5000 business cards from China to London with say a 5-7 day turnaround?

    1000 or 5000 is not a big quantity, can ship by DHL express, will be about cost 100 USD to ship.
