Shearson Print Group has been working with Asian printers since 1989. The factories’ specialties are based on their equipment and experience and cover a wide range of product lines – books, calendars, note cards, maps, bookmarks, catalogs and packaging. It gives us the opportunity to offer our clients a broad array of services.
Why print in Asia?
High quality, reliable service and lower prices…the same reasons people buy other goods from Asian manufacturers. Korea and China have advanced in printing and binding to match world-class standards while maintaining the most competitive prices found anywhere— usually a 20%-30% savings over U.S. prices.
Why use Shearson Print Group?
We have an established reputation in printing and publishing with thirty-five years of experience working with printers in Asia and America. Our custom publishing group gives clients the opportunity to tap into Shearson’s aesthetic and production expertise to create their own publications. Our experienced, dedicated team works collaboratively with you in both the creation and production of projects. Let our team bring the enthusiasm and creatively for which Shearson is known to your next project.
What about turn-around time and proofs?
Normal production time is one week for press proofs and one to two weeks for printing and post-press depending on the quantity and complexity of the job. Proofs/art are sent via Fed Express and usually take 2 days each way. Average shipping time via sea to West Coast ports is 11 days from Korea. From there we ship by rail or truck to all U.S. destinations.
