Becky and Larry Raney at Print & Copy are amazing! When I first met Becky back in the 1990’s she was the ONLY printer in town who talked to me like I mattered. Every other printing company I contacted treated me like I didn’t know anything (which I didn’t 🙂 ). Because of Becky’s amazing customer service, I chose P&CF as the company to print my greeting card designs. Those designs ended up getting me a contract with Sunrise/Interart (now Hallmark) as a greeting card designer. Those greeting cards ended up being sold for years in Barnes & Noble and many other major retailers.

In 1998 when my brother and I decided to produce a Beanie Baby Binder book, who do you think we contacted? Becky and Larry of course! Print and Copy Factory produced 10’s of thousands of those books for us and it was the Amazon.com best selling book on collectibles for 1998. What an honor! And what a fantastic job that P&CF did for us — hours and hours spent putting those books together by hand! What an amazing assembly line they set up for us. Becky and Larry and their wonderful staff (Krystal etc.) went above and beyond to make sure that we had solutions that were cost effective and timely for our growing business.

In 1999, P&CF once again produced my “I Sell” binders for selling on eBay. It is now 11 years later and who do you think I called last week to place a re-order? Becky and Larry.

In 2002, when I wrote my first “100 Best Things I’ve Sold on eBay” book, it was Becky who helped me with the creative vision. What P&CF offers is so much more than just printing services! You really feel like they are a partner in making your vision a reality. I don’t know how many rough drafts of the pages that Becky looked at for me (100’s I think and all by fax since I now live in California) but her suggestions were beyond amazing. They were priceless! She is the one who suggested that I use a faded side photo in each story and helped us come up with the arrows and the flow for the right hand side.

Since then I have written 3 more books in that “100 Best” series and Becky and Larry have printed every one for us. For my most recent book, “The 4th 100 Best Things I’ve Sold on eBay — Home Run,” Becky was instrumental in helping us to get the cover just perfect. Her artistic sense is invaluable. And every time I needed 100 books JIT (just in time) for Book Expo America for an autographing session in NY, Print & Copy Factory made it happen. I don’t know what I would do without them!

Becky and Larry started out as business associates and are now so much more, they are my friends. I give them the highest recommendation possible and refer everyone I know to P&CF.
