Printers - Tips for searching
Tips for searching Printers
Whether you need gig flyers, posters, tickets, t-shirts, banners, backdrops & signs – no gig or festival would be complete without the services of a reliable printing company. Some of the printing companies listed in our directory work regularly with music industry clients and some are just handy, local and perfect for a musician on a budget.
Look for printers that are based locally to you & give them a call to make enquiries. We recommend getting a few quotes from different places to get the best price and it can always be a good idea to chat to other bands & artists you know from the area to see if there are any printers they’ve used in the past that they rate.
What’s in a Printer listing?
• Contact details
• Social media profiles (where applicable)
• Contact name(s)
• Items they can produce/print onto
• Whether they have an in-house design team
• If they can cater for small runs
• Whether they have worked with musicians, bands or music industry in the past
NB. Please note The Unsigned Guide can only publish the contact details and information that each individual company gives us permission to make publicly available so the level of detail in some listings can vary. We do our best to encourage companies and individuals listed to give as much info as possible to make sure the listings are helpful to you.
