Default Big cost savings with Catalog Kings for business cards

I was on the advanced training call this morning with Mike DeFore as he was recording the audio for the new orientation video that he's putting together. It was really informative and I even learned something new: Mike said that 1,000 business cards can be ordered from Catalog Kings (same folks with the awesome pricing on our tri-fold brochures) for $35! I was pricing it with VistaPrint thru our Marketing Back Office last night and it was WAY more expensive. So if you are ordering tri-folds, you might want to think about ordering 1,000 business cards, too. I put my order in for both with Catalog Kings this morning. I'm really looking forward to getting everything in the next couple of weeks.

Also, if you are interested in placing our tri-folds into doctor, dentist, vet, etc., offices, I did alot of research last night into online companies selling the acryllic stands and found them as low as $1.09 each!! That's an amazing price. I'll be ordering those today as well.

Just wanted to pass on great news!

I ordered mine this weekend and I am very excited to get them, so I can get them out in my town. I am not going to wait for the brochures before I start getting the information out. I plan on taking flyers out in my town and putting them on every bulletin board I can find. Places I know are good are laundromats, car repair shops, gyms, libraries, and grocery stores. Can you think of any other places that would be good?

Kathy, don't forget hair & nail salons & tire stores (could be included in auto repair shops). Small independent restaurants might also be good.

Good luck! Keep us posted how it works for you.

Thumbs up

I have my business cards from Catalog King and they are fantastic! Great quality! I would like for someone to send me a copy of a full-size flyer if possible....I'm having trouble re-producing the one I have.....I would appreciate your help..Can't wait to get my brochures! Got my sample packets today! If I can get a good flyer, I'm ready to start posting in my community businesses, and in the surrounding areas.

You can send me a PM or send it to my business email address of: smithenterprises2insightbb.com

Thanks! Here's to our success!

Cheryl ~

I would love to know too. I ordered 50 inexpensive cardboard brochures, but I have to send them back as they are so flimsy. They were around .44 a piece, but I guess you get what you pay for :-) I was going to go with a stronger cardboard for around .79 a piece. All the acrylic stands I found were very expensive, so I would love to find ones cheaper.

I appreciate any information.

Take care
Candi

Default Flyers

I guess I'm echoing everyone tonight. I have flyers I got from Julie & Cookie, which are great, but I am using them for smaller scale brochures (3 or 4 on one page). If anyone has a good full page flyer would you mind if I looked at it? I'm going to do some experimenting with one, but if anyone has one I can look at would you mind sending me an email. [email protected]

Thank you so much everyone. I love how everyone support each other, I love Xpress.

Be blessed!
Candi

Here's the link to the place I'll be ordering my display racks for our tri-folds:

These Plastic Flyer Holders are Injection Molded for Affordability! Other Literature Displays and Brochure Boxes at Wholesale Prices are Also Available! Most Plastic Flyer Holders Ship Same Day When In Stock!

The minimum order is for 60, but that's by far the lowest price I've seen. I want to say that shipping was about $23 or so for ground (the cheapest shipping method). I searched places for free shipping but the cost was higher on the racks and it ended up costing more! Ugh!

Hope this helps everyone! They have almost 21,000 in stock, so that's good for us!

Hi Candi,

Would you mind sharing your source for the sturdier cardboard stands. I don't know that I would need 60 of the acrylic yet.

Thanks!
