    We are a new publisher looking to print 2,000 - 3,000 fashion magazines. The cover and paper would need to be good quality, as the magazine is mostly photographs. Does anyone know of any good, reliable companies in China for printing? Specs for the magazine are as follows:

    8.5 x 11
    120 Pages
    UV Cover (Good Quality)
    Full Color Paper Throughout (Good Quality)
    2,000 - 3,000 Copies

    Hey, outsousing to China is out fashion, good quality isn't exactly their strong side either, you know the rule: low price / good quality / fast turnaround, pick two. The 2-3k run will not pose sufficient savings sent so far away, the shipping will bite off most of the potential savings...
    Plus who needs whatever you think to advertise in those magazines, we can all just order Chineese made things directly from them, I mean if it is ok for you to seek overseas source, even if it makes none to very little commercial sense, we all should do this, hopefully it wont come done to children making/raising being outsoursed overseas.

    Why outsource to China? I am sure there are a number of printers within the US and even your state or city that could produce your project at a competive price point. You can request qoutes from several printers within the US and China and compaire pricing. However, don't forget to factor in the cost of shipping.

    If you like, contact me at john@alliedprintingandmailing.com and I will be happy to qoute you a price.

    If your magazines are monthly or quarterly magazines, then you can plan to print in China because you have to consider the shipment time. If you are in the west coast of the US, shipment by ocean will takes 12-15 days. And printing will need 5-8 days. We printed many US magazines, hope we can help you.
