Hey, have you heard of Comic Impressions yet?

I’m really excited about this comic and graphic novel printer that can service comic orders big and small, digital and off-set.

And because they’re located in the United States, they can get most of my listeners their books fast!

While new to comic scene, this printing company has been in the business of expertly putting ink on paper for over 30 years.

Comic Impressions is already printing books for successful Kickstarter creators and direct market publishers like Scout Comics, and they recently knocked the first printing project I sent sent their way for ComixTribe out of the park!

Comic Impressions is one of the few comic printers using the HP Indigo 12000 Digital Press which lets them digitally print comics that nearly indistinguishable from offset print runs at affordable prices, even for smaller runs.

Seriously, I’m a big print quality snob and these are some of the best digitally printed books I’ve ever flipped through.

But don’t take my word for it… what I want you to do is go right now and request a COMPLIMENTARY sample pack from ComicImpressions Team at ComicImpressions.com.

I asked Rich Boye at Comic Impressionsto put together a bunch of FREE sample packs for ComixLaunch listeners showcasing both their digital and offset printing capabilities and ship them at no charge to creators who ask for them… and he said no problem.

I know you’re going to be impressed.

And while you’re at it, if submit a quote for your next printing project and I think you’re going to find there pricing extremely competitive as well.

Plus, if you mention ComixLaunch and you’ll get an additional 5% off your next order!
