Printhouse's cadre of vivacious designers and programmers craft web and print designs that can manifest into the physical world via digital, offset, and screen printing. In about 20 to 30 minutes, they can design a one-sided, black-and-white business card to particular specifications ($65 an hour), then conjure 250 of them on 12-point card stock ($26.99), sometimes in the same day or within an hour. Prepared projects, such as unpublished novels, need only be submitted via the online upload form, and Printhouse’s digital minions will display them on quaint, old-fashioned media materials such as paper. Broadcast more than 140 characters of logo, opinion, or witty repartee on a T-shirt, button, magnetic decal, or large banner. Printhouse's price list hints at the full possibilities. Call or email for a quote based on a custom project.
