Take a look at what one of our satisfied customers had to say:

“Carolyn and Sam were great to work with. They are very fair in their pricing and most importantly, honest. They gave good suggestions as to ways we could save money and still have a quality product. We went to PRINT-Xpress at the suggestion of someone with extremely high standards and PRINT-Xpress did not disappoint. They created an auction book for us and went above and beyond in terms of finding our mistakes and correcting them before book went to print. Carolyn followed up with us the week after our benefit to see how everything went - how nice is that! I will most definitely take future business to Sam and Carolyn.”


"I recently started working with a not for profit and am glad I found Sam and Print-Xpress to help me with my printing needs. I have been impressed with the quality of work and turnaround time."

"Carolyn was great. I'm in the health care field and received compliments from other colleagues on the quality of the card. She was easy to work with and made good suggestions regarding my cards, font, color etc... I will definitely come back. I initially tried to go to Kinko's, wow, that was terrible. If you want someone whose been doing this for a long time to work on your cards go to Print-Xpress. If you want that feeling you get when you go to Menards or Lowes where no one really cares, knows what they're doing or & want to sacrifice quality, go somewhere else."
Marc G.


"I had just established a franchise business, and home office had demanding and high standards for print quality, from my business card to catalog sheets. This was not going to be something I could drop off at a big box store and pick up in an hour. Sam Eckerling and Carolyn at Print-Xpress were highly responsive, attentive to my needs, and very, very detail-oriented, working at times directly with the marketing staff at the home office to be certain everything would be correct. The results? The printed card, folder and catalog pages were absolutely stunning, truly representative of the quality image I need to project. I am a enthusiastically happy customer, and I will use Print-Xpress for all of my printing services needs."
Steve N.


"The gentleman who runs this place, Sam, is the nicest man! What a great experience. I will definitely be back for more signage!

"I have worked with this printer for many years. I always get excellent quality work, for very fair prices. Sam and Carolyn go above and beyond so that my projects are completed on time (and often ahead of schedule) and look amazing. I recently found out that they can print banners, so I will be utilizing them for this service as well. On a recent job, Carolyn called to let me know that certain aspects of my artwork needed to be fixed, and she very patiently helped me so that the job was printed perfectly."
