Not only just business cards, brochures and flyers are also common ways of advertisement. All of these services are likely provided by a business printing service. So, for this article, we will be comparing 4 business printing services in Singapore. Of course, this list is not exhaustive, but at least you can get a sense of how the prices are like and the services generally on offer.

Verdict

If you want the absolute cheapest price for the most basic business card, EasiTech may be the cheapest option if you buy in bulk at upwards of 300 pieces or more. However, they lack customisation options compared to the other options. We recommend PrintVenue because they are not that much more expensive than EasiTech and they have a user-friendly interface as well as a large variety of customisation and design options so that you can make your optimal card for your purposes.

But of course, you have to make your own judgement on which company to select for your printing needs. Look through their prices and services carefully and make sure you are happy with what you will be paying for.
