I cannot recall having ever worked with a speedier, more professional printer
than Gaucho’s. Lightning fast turnaround, a quality second to none and a
pleasure to work with. When you want something done right, I highly suggest

Fast, high-quality and very reasonably priced—our experience of printing
The Coelacanth Journal (b/w - 200 x A5 p. 36) with Paul Moretti at Kopykat
has always been easy and successful.

Good all-around quality printer. They do a lot of art books and have their
own publishing house, so if you publish with them you save money on
printing costs. Moderate price.
Update, 6/11/09: Recently they discontinued their publishing house due to
tough economic times. But they’re still in business as a printer.

They produce high quality art books. They can work with you to produce
just about anything.
Good for runs of 1000 and more. Can be a little flakey in regards to
returning calls/emails. But print quality is excellent and files to warehouse
time is only a month.
If you have a few months, ask them if you can do it on no deadline for a
much cheaper price.
We’ve yet to work with them. They can print all sorts of books/magazines/
etc. They seem flexible in their printing abilities. They’ve printed Thrill
Jockey’s recent books & Thrill Jockey speaks highly of them.
We’ve had success with Westcan insofar as they are always excited about
unique projects involving multiple signatures of disparate paper stocks. They
like to experiment more than most. They don’t fuss about us supplying our
own letterpressed covers and they generally have good ideas in regards to
problem solving or fleshing out my ideas. Because they print in Winnipeg,
too, where “things are cheaper,” it is reasonably priced for an offset press.
They are very comfortable and good at printing art periodicals.
