Customer Service

We provides a unique level of customer service. All of our Project Managers have at least 15 years of print experience. We have a very technical group of people overseeing your job from start to finish. The same person does your estimate, determines your schedule and oversees your job through the various stages of production. We review your paper, print,  finishing and fulfillment options with you.  If a question comes up, your Project Manager will contact you immediately with questions and/or suggestions. Our project managers work in teams so if for some reason your primary contact is out of the office or unavailable, there will be someone else who is familiar with your job.

Preflight

Prepress

Community Printers provides state of the art electronic pre-press services, including full Mac and PC support. Our proofs are color accurate and bound to show you what your finished job will look like before it goes to press. A unique feature of printing at Community Printers is that we do not charge for first round author corrections at the proof stage. It is important for you to see a accurate proof before proceeding with your job and that if something isn't right that you have a chance to make corrections. We believe that this is key to the incredible customer loyalty that we have.
