R.A. Comics Direct — printing review

jadinerhine:

This is my first time writing a review for a printing company — while I’m mainly doing it for loomcomics and her sister, I hope this also helps anyone like me who wants to be sure about which printing companies and which aren’t. So reblogs are super appreciated! This is solely my experience, as I’m sure anyone can attest to the fact that everyone’s experiences are different. For me, printing with this company was nothing short of positive. If you have any comments, or other things to say about RA Comics Direct, feel free to add to this post :D

So, last year I decided to print the entire first chapter of Legendary Beings Ara & Celi for MetaCon. The only time this comic has ever seen print *technically* was in a four-page sample I printed with the folks at KaBlam back in 2007(?), in order to see how it would look and if I needed to up the tones and such. The black-and-white was fine, but the color cover turned out too saturated for me. Still, their customer service was great. I thought about them as my first option, but horror stories had popped up about them by then, so I was wary. The prices this time were also not viable for me. (For one thing, the cost per product did not go down no matter how many copies you bought. That’s a no go for me.)

Comixpress was awful in getting back to me — and with everyone else, it seemed, when I found that any new orders made before they closed doors some months ago would NOT be finished (or charged for, thankfully). Only old orders in progress would be finished. This, after they replied once after I sent them another email after my initial order was done through their form on their site. *breathes for a second* Then they said that they would definitely get back to me with a rough estimate as soon as they received a new email from me with my order copy/pasted. >_>;; I lost count of the emails I sent, but I digress.

There was also Endeavor Printing. The costs didn’t make me go through with them. However they answered quite rapidly and nicely, as well as having very good-looking products. So, here is the link to them if you want to check it out!

NOW TO THE GOOD (LONG) PART!

I actually knew about RA Comics Direct before, due to the fact that they followed me eons ago on Twitter. At the time I noticed they were in California and well, basically shipping costs were extreme and printing even more so. Therefore, I crossed them off my list of options, as I ain’t a millionaire.

Then came the last resort stage, and I checked them out again. I have no clue what happened —maybe I misunderstood things upon my first visit—but their prices were reasonable compared to others!

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge! This is great to learn, since in the rest of the ‘States, we don’t learn, like, anything about Puerto Rico. :(

Imagine how people from Guam or American Samoa feel ;____; And it’s funny, because all this time only ONE person, when I mentioned I was from Puerto Rico, started to tell me everything he knew about it, even knew our official name!

And it was a Russian when I was studying abroad in Russia XD

However, I am always happy to divulge whatever knowledge I have about my country, even if I have to fact-check myself. If anyone takes something from my rambles, then I did okay! :D

So ‘twas no problem <3

I’d also like to announce that loomcomics!

The review for the printer I used will go up between tonight and tomorrow! >8U *pumps up*

Because this is really important and I do hope it helps everyone interested, besides LOOM!

Bad News

princelesscomic:

So, bad news gang.

Due to unforeseen life circumstances our good friend and artist Soojin Paek has had to bow out of doing Princeless: The Pirate Princess, which was scheduled to be the next volume of Princeless.

That means that that particular volume is on hold for the immediate future and I am desperately in need of a new amazing artist to work with on this volume and hopefully a ongoing from there.

Sadly I live in a world of mortgage and daycare where I can’t afford to just hire a great artist for the foreseeable future, so this is likely to involve some real hunting for someone who is willing to invest.  I’m always happy to pay folks some amount for short stories, but something of the mass of a whole volume is a bit out of my reach page rate wise.

So, here we go again.
