It all starts by having an idea you totally buy into. Then you dream about the prospects of actually realizing that idea; the many successes this one ‘idea’ promises to bring to your doorstep, the affluence you would gain and guaranteed personal fulfillment when this special idea comes to fruition. I am sure most you if not all must have gone through this very thought process at some point in your life… for me, it’s an endless routine.
Now, the process of achieving your grand ‘idea’ is a lot smoother in foreign countries like the US and UK; and yea I mention these places simply because they have a working system. For example, if you wanted a market research report, business plan, business cards, letterheads and contract template for your grand ‘idea’, you can actually find a company or a service that can cater to your needs which ultimately adds value to realizing your dream of making your ‘idea’ work. In countries like ours, I think it’s a little more challenging to find these services at reasonable prices, and that’s why I’m highlighting a company in Lagos, Nigeria that supports your/our/my ‘idea’: PRINTIVO.
I mean, you and I know business cards, at the very least, are usually a necessity in any start up business, but we tend to forget about them until a need arises (or at least I did)! Anyway, so here I was, at a gathering with like-minded folks, discussing business ideas and plans for the future then all of sudden it was time to say goodbye and I had no business card to exchange upon request; potentially destroying any chance of a continued relationship with these folks. A real bummer if you ask me…anyway, the incident led to my search for a print company and fortunately I found PRINTIVO. Stumbling upon their website made me so excited; my favorite country in the entire world now had a visaprint-like service for small businesses!
I used Printivo to get my business cards printed and it cost about 5k naira for 200, which I think is very affordable. I placed my order on their site (uploaded my cards and all), and paid via their mobile app (because that was the most convenient option for me). Printivo delivered my cards within 3 working days for FREE! I believe their policy is to deliver within 3-5 working business days and for FREE within Lagos.
I have utilized Printivo’s services and can attest to their high level of customer service and commitment; I was very impressed. I’d recommend Printivo if you are looking to have a print job done on a budget. I mean, afterall, they DELIVER and that to me is a mighty achievement in a place like Lagos, Nigeria.
My personal score for their service is 4/5. (Highly Recommended)
