I know it has been awhile, but I thought this was a good opportunity to point out the truth behind printing costs.
A recent article on Yahoo* gives a great reason why you should have your printing work done by a professional:
2. Formal Printing Jobs
Another thing that sounds cheaper than it is: printing invitations, posters and other print jobs at home. What you’re not considering, though, is the cost of ink. “Major manufacturers often break even or lose money on printers, but they more than make up for it with ink cartridges priced more dearly than caviar,” says Forgach.
A good exercise, if you’re not convinced, is to calculate the cost per page. “Consult the printer manual to determine a base rate of pages per cartridge, divide this rate by the cost of each cartridge [and] add in the cost of paper, test runs and errors,” says Forgach. Don’t forget time and frustration, either, she adds.
There are other reasons, mostly professionality, but printing can make or break a business marketing plan.

Sorry for the delay folks, we have been busy changing hosting companies.
As of the middle of May we have started moving all of our hosting to a new server. Because of issues with our old host we found it necessary to start fresh after several years. The new host has been EXTREMELY helpful with our transition and we hope this will be the best move for all of us.
CURRENT CUSTOMERS: If you notice a slight delay with your email or site it may just be the transition and should not last long.
