Why risk dealing with a foreign company for your overseas printing needs? We understand the inherent risk in printing itself, to double the risk by dealing with yet a foreign company is just not prudent.
We've been doing overseas printing since 2003! For the 17 years we've been doing this, we have accumulated tons of experience and network. Our resources make us uniquely qualified.
Over the years, our clients have entrusted us with over $50 million dollars (and counting) worth of printing. The sheer volume of printing orders makes us "the" choice for your printing needs.
We understand the primary reason for going overseas is to save money. Feel free to compare our quote against others, but don't forget that quality, service, and accountability are sometimes more important than just a low-ball pricing.
Our network of print factories in China have been working with us for over a decade. There's an existing and on-going working relationship to ensure that every job gets the highest attention that it deserves.
While printing is our core-strength, we also take care of all the shipping and delivery so that you don't have to. Most print buyers don't recognize it, but logistics is half of the equation in "overseas" printing.
Send us your files. Email, FTP, DropBox, your choice. Once we get your files, we'll preflight them to ensure they're up to spec.
Based on your files and specs, a proof will be produced for your inspection. Once approved, the clock starts ticking.
Print production will be the same as anywhere else - most jobs takes about a week or two. For bigger jobs, partial shipment can be arranged.
An advanced copy of the finished product will be immediately dispatched to you while the main shipment is being exported.
We take care of all the export process. Negotiate ocean freight, arranging truck pick-up, and clear through Chinese Customs.
Ocean freight takes less than two weeks from China to the West Coast. Three to four weeks to other states and the East Coast.
Once docked, we will clear the shipment through U.S. Customs. We handle all the paperwork and the hassle so you don't have to.
We will then work with you on a delivery schedule. Delivery takes place within one to three days once the shipment clears through the Custom.

Beaconstar has established several overseas offices in order to provide a higher degree of control over quality and pricing. As of today, we have offices in Shanghai, Shenzhen, Changsha, and Taipei, each performing tasks relevant to the needs of our U.S. customers.
