    I'm looking to get some leaflets made. Has anyone got any recommendations of which online company to use?

    I've been knocking up some very basic leaflets on my computer and printing them off but it's hassle and I want something a little bit more professional.

    Cheers.

    I used vistaprint first but I found little pricey but very good quality. I also used helloprint. They made me 5000 for less than £50. I still have tonnes left.

    Online is ok but you never know the quality until you have them delivered
    There is a cheap place who always advertise on the side of the buildings in orchard road by lincolns tyres
    I know a guy who went to the printers in the old town high street next to choc box and dominos who had a whole ream of 500 sheets of quality paper printed cheap
    He put 6 on a page i think and then just had to cut them on a guillotine
    3k leaflets for cheap then

    I'll check out the place by Lincoln tyres. I'm not hugely bothered by the quality from places online. The ones I've been making are mega basic but have been doing the job. Did you get any leafletting done today daveyboy1?

    I know you won't believe me but I actually did some work today :rof:

    I'd go with the cheapest of the bigger online companies, e.g. Vista print, instaprint, hello print etc. just make sure when comparing quotes the qty, paper stock and finish etc are like for like.

    Make sure if getting quotes of their web sites you check delivery charges and times and if vat added if applicable.

    At the end of they day a flyer is a flyer is a flyer, a basic 135gsm glossy or satin finish is normally sufficent.

    Get the content and design right.

    I read that and fell off my chair Neil
    You working during the week is surprising enough lol
    I would look on google mate as i always see the ad on the walls of the units up by lincolns but don't actually know where the place is
    Or there is colourprofile up whitworth road but Adrian is a bit expensive
    There is a printers where autolecs used to be (2nd turning on right on wedgewood way)
    Can't remember the name or proper address but could describe it to you on messenger later
    I didn't do any leaflets today as we went out for the day
    Will be doing a few hours tomorrow once the meeting at the rugby club is over (which always involves a few beers lol so will be leafletting within walking distance of home)

    I knew me working on a Saturday would make you laugh. It was only two gutter jobs next to each other down the road from me. I was out the house for less than an hour.

    I use RTH print, I use there 240gsm A4 double sided leaflets, top quality and great prices, good turn around of 5 days or less if you want to pay for 24 hour print and deliver.
    I find crappy A5 thin quality leaflets are more prone to getting binned, something highly illustrated and bigger gets more attention IMO, worth spending a bit extra.

    Think I pay around £150 per 5000 deliverd to my door.
