I would find a local, full-service print shop to make your marketing materials. Online and big-box suppliers have not worked well for me for during the design and development phase.

The biggest difficulties with any graphics work are the artwork and layouts that you provide them. Just like custom woodworking, this requires a lot of give-and-take between the customer and the manufacturer. A local source is much more convenient to work with.

Once you have nailed your requirements with a local company, the process becomes routine and you can start using the high volume folks online to save some money. But once a local relationship is established, I find it better to continue with the local folks because I feel more comfortable with the finished product.

Plus, they may give you referrals for some local business.
