Metzgers Enters Online Sales

Metzgers Launches BIG CHECK Micro-Site and Online Digital Print Ordering

TOLEDO, OH - November 1, 2011 - October has been an innovative month for Metzgers, which has taken the first steps into online sales by unveiling two websites aimed at selling print.

Metzgers introduced a micro-site to sell large-format presentation checks under the title Print Big Checks ( and an online digital print store, titled The Printing Shack, to provide common business and home items such as business cards and flyers / sell sheets. (

Print Big Checks was launched October 3, 2011 and offers check sizes ranging from 15” x 33” up to 35” x 77”. Six templates are currently offered on the site. There are plans to expand the template / design offerings.

PrintBigChecks ScreenShotStandard check fields are customizable, allowing users to generate content specific to their needs. Logos can be uploaded and added to the checks.

“I see these checks everywhere,” said Joe Metzger, president of Metzgers. “Small events, large events, in Hollywood movies and on late night TV… At Golf events, charity events… They are everywhere. The potential is wide open.”

The site was built with customer usability in mind. Instead of overwhelming users with tiered pricing or dozens of materials and add-ons, three best-choice materials were picked and a simple pricing structure with flat-rate shipping created.

“The customer clicks here, types in a number there, and the text for the dollar amount is automatic. No other site on the web has such great features,” said Metzger. “Our pricing is so low that we don’t plan to get rich off of this, just serve our customers daily throughout the US and Canada.”

The Printing Shack was released October 21, 2011 to offer a low-cost and high-quality alternative to some of the larger online print sites.

The Printing Shack ScreenShotSix items are currently available: Business Cards, Envelopes, Greeting Cards, Letterhead, Postcards, and Sell Sheets / Flyers.

“The Printing Shack is a resource where businesses can order their simple printed items online, pay with a credit card, yet receive the high quality and service from a trusted partner, Metzgers,” said Metzger.

Printing Shack items are printed digitally on a Xerox iGen 4, which allows quick turnaround and low costs.

“Some online printers are online companies that added printing capabilities. Other online printers use gang printing to attain their low price competitiveness. Gang printing is where they print orders for different customers together on the same sheet to reduce their manufacturing costs,” said Metzger. The Printing Shack provides the online experience of the big guys with the personalized care, attention to detail and the service of Metzgers.

A few of the benefits over the competition are:

  • The ability to fully customize items (Front and Back)
  • No cost for uploading images
  • Upfront pricing for items
  • Capability to upload custom designs
  • Hundreds of template choices
  • Quick turnaround without additional charges

Metzgers is a printing, mailing, fulfillment, and marketing firm serving corporations, educational institutions, healthcare organizations, and ad agencies across the U.S.
