For years and years, if you wanted to get some printing done, you had to either do it yourself on your home printer (if you had one) or traipse down to the high street. Once there, you’d be charged through the teeth. You had no other option.
And then came online printers. The rise of the Internet gave rise to a host of online print services. No shops, no queues, just the printing you needed. Online printers, by definition, have no physical property. We don’t have to pay thousands a month on rent and rates. This saving is passed onto the customer. Furthermore, for websites such as StuPint.com, the whole process became automated so staff costs decreased.
