    Then stay away from Kinko's. They quoted me almost $0.80/page.

    Sorry, but YES YOU ARE DREAMING!! Even at $400 for 10K that's only 0.03 cents each and I you'd be VERY lucky to even get BW printed for that as the cheapest rate you normally see for BW is about 0.05 cents each. ALso color printing is color printing whether it has 2 colors or 5 colors it will still cost the same. The very cheapest I have seen color printing anywhere was at like 0.25 cents per copy. Which for 10K would be $2500.00

    BUT, if you don't need flyers you can get full color postcards and some doorhangers printed for between $150-$400 per 5K depending on which company you use.

    A local printshop does mine for 3 cents a copy. Best deal I could find, and quick turn-around as well.

    My local office depot will print 10,001 flyers (this is the best price break) for 3 cents apiece, letter or legal. =$300

    the trick to 1 cent flyers is design them 3 to a page on legal paper which is only slightly smaller than 2 to a page for letter size.

    Now have the legal page cut into 3 pieces (2 cuts) $80.00

    You now have 30,000 flyers for 1.3 cents each. :eek:
