Here are the testimonials of clients who have used this service:

?This is a great service which has put me in touch with printers
around the country ... I plan to keep using it to get quotes on jobs I
have coming up."

"We were astounded by the response to the bid we put on the Exchange.
Received 8 quotes in 24 hours. Three have been good with follow-up
after the fact. Will use one of the Exchange quotes to fill the order.
Love the Exchange and have been waiting for something of this sort for
a while."

"This association has been great for me. I'm a partner in a small
Washington, DC press and recently sent you specs on a paperback
publishing job. The printer we decided to go with is one that
contacted us from your service. Another printer that contacted us from
your service, we're going to use for a different project we have
coming up. Many thanks for providing an invaluable, amazing resource."

"I have received bids from 6 to 8 different companies and have finally
narrowed it down to one. We will visit their Nashville printing
facility and make a decision based on our visit. Yes, your service is
very effective."

"I like your service, it's easy to use and puts me directly in touch
with the printers."

"I am very happy with the response I got. I heard from seven companies
and many of them sent me valuable information on self publishing ...
that impressed me!"

Hello couponguy-ga:

It is a pleasure to work with you on this question. What I will do
here is provide you the names of few companies that can fulfill your
coupon book printing requirements. Secondly, I will provide you two
websites that will quote multiple commercial printers (as suggested by
bobbie7-ga). Both of these websites specifically quote the ?coupon
book printing? rates. Lastly, I will provide you the links to the
directories of printers in Colorado area so it will be easier for you
to contact their business, if you decide to.

Finally, I just want to mention that I will work with you to find a
suitable printer until you get a reasonable quote. We can carry this
process through question clarification.

I have been delayed in getting back to this, I followed through on the
list of recomended printers, made a lot of  calls only to find none of
the recomended printers can handle economically a printing of the size
I stated. The printer will need to have a Web Press.
I want to establish a working relationship with the printer we go with
and therfore do not want to use a broker.
Happy new year

Thank you couponguy:

Let me check if we can find something else.

Are you still checking or should I re-post?

Clarification of Answer by leader-ga on 27 Jan 2004 11:14 PST
Thank you for providing me this oppertunity. Actually, I was waiting
for a couple of emails from the printing companies. I didn't find
anything conclusive from the two replies that I got, so far.

It seems that it will really help us if you repost the question. In
the mean time, I will wait for any additional emails. I will contact
you, if I get a response from them.
