This should be a staple for bands, labels and zine editors looking to avoid the outrageous rip-off prices of corporate outlets. Moxicopy has no set-up fees, low prices ($0.04 b&w copies, $0.14 color copies), tons of paper/print options, fast service and turn around, no printing minimums and the quality of their digital copying is fucking amazing.

Not sure if they service outside the USA, but I seriously can't say enough about how happy I am to see a high quality digital printer without the corporate bullshit attached.

In case those are unaware to keep in mind, 20# paper is very thin printing paper, perhaps thinner than that used at most copy centers. Not recommended if you're looking to print on thicker stock paper, though they may have other options for thicker quality paper.

24# and 28# is a good weight for zines, but I've used 20# with decent results in the past.

For those doing booklets, jcards, inserts, etc... I'd advise using Moxicopy's 100# glossy text weight. For 7" jackets, 67# cover stock.

They have a ton of paper options and paper sizes available.

Judging from their quotes I don't see sizes that would work as j-card or 7'' jacket dimensions, or do they do those as custom orders? I may be looking for someone who can print fold covers for 7'' release.

Not bad prices though if you're looking for decent zine printing.

It would be very nice to know if they take orders from Canada or others countries. Can't find anything on the website. I'll try to email them.

Thanks for the hint !

For jCards, booklets, inserts, 7" jackets, etc... it's as simple as laying them out in photoshop to the correct specs and then saving the PSD file as a PFD. So let's say you sized a jcard in Photoshop to 4.5"x6.5" and then saved the file. It will then print at that size. All you have to do is cut them yourself unless you pay a little extra for the printer to do it.

These prices are fucking outstanding. I was looking at like $70 to do just 100 jCards through 1984printing and Pirates Press, but going through Moxicopy I printed 100 of them for less than $10 (though I had to cut the jcards myself, which isn't a problem with a rotary trimmer).

Advice to anyone shopping for a printer- though this one is exempt, if you come across a flashy looking website with a bunch of "professional" photos and tons of gloating about what the company can do- BEWARE. It's more than likely a corporate scam meant to milk people with bogus set up fees and astronomical printing prices.
