HC-Home_show-rd2 When we custom design your print piece, there are many criteria we consider and take care of for you, most notably:

  1. Intended use
  2. Target audience
  3. Quality of final print piece
  4. How color translates from monitor to paper
  5. File setup for proper image resolution, bleeds and font representation
  6. Delivery & distribution

Our Process is Your Guarantee

We get it right the first time, because we are experienced print brokers. This means that we work with a variety of printers, not just one.  In other words, we shop around to find you the best suppliers for your budget, desired quality and timeline. Also see Why Choose Meringue 3.14

How do our rates compare to industry standard?

As print brokers, we hear a common concern that our prices may be too high for small business to even bother requesting a quote. Actually, in many cases, the opposite is true. Click here to take a look at how our rates compare to other local print shops on business cards, brochures and letterhead.

Since 2003, we have been price shopping and finessing a system to bring commonly requested print items to your door at a competitive rate. There are a lot of great DIY sites and services on the net, but the thing they lack is the personal service touch that ensures your complete satisfaction. Meringue 3.14 offers an accountable hands-free service. Don’t spend your time learning about paper quality and coatings, we have discerning customers and our super thick stock comes standard.
