Hey Geek zone users,

My name is Ben and I am from Australia.

My interests are online business, and I currently run: www.printerboy.com.au

I have joined this forum with the idea of offering Printerboy.com.au to NZ investors to run under either Printerboy.co.nz or alternatively under your own name.

____________

How Printerboy works:

- Add the details of what you want printed on the website example 1000 dl flyers

- Printing Companies submit offers

- You then pick the offer you like best and the Printing Company gets charged a success fee of 7%.

____________

If you have any advice regarding the sale of my business in NZ or have interest in purchasing the business please contact me through the forum.

Thanks Geek zone users

Ben.

There was a web site years ago with a similar concept, for transport. One would list the characteristics of their parcels/boxes, origin and destination and transport companies would bid (probably trying to fill any truck already going from one point to another).

It was mainly B2C. It died a slow death.

I think http://nz.printing.com/ and other similar businesses have this covered as they are so cheap already

I actually made the same type of site about 7 years ago. Called it the digital print network.  I think it annoyed the printers as "things are tough enough without this" seemed to be the common vibe. It got a bit of traffic but it was before the internet was as big as it is now. Turned it off a year later.

To be honest it really doesn't mater what they offer, if you really want cheap printing then vistaprint will slaughter anyone with pricing. I had 250 duplex colour business printed for $40. If your happy to wait on delivery. 

However, I do have a B2B concept that you might find interesting, if you already have a steady bunch of printers.
