Default Getting stuff printed off

Bit of a shit question but.....I am doing some design work and need it printed off, I've been using Spectrum at DIFC but they do charge a bloody fortune, I have 2 180 page reports and its going to cost me about AED 1k to get the things printed.

Does anyone know anywhere else decent that does colour prints? A4 and A3?

Ta.

I've used Flying Colours at Crowne Plaza for a couple of years. Always done what I need but general printing rather than hi-res stuff.

No idea if they can help but might be worth a try; 04 3903065

what sort of quality? just an ordinary printer type? cos there is a shop in Jumeirah Plaza that does that sort of stuff. If it was more professional then try Pro Lab

Pro Lab is very good, but pricey. Pricer than Spectrum.

There is a place that does printing in Knowledge Village, but I can't remember the name.

What about buying an A3 colour printer. I have an HP that does most of the work I need, not commercial quality but photo quality up to A3. Might save you money depending on the quality you need.

yeah long term I will do that for sure, it's costing me a fortune getting a cab to DIFC from disco gardens, then printing stuff off, then cab to clients etc etc
