We are considering about Comixpress.com for Anthology. BUt  I haven't had time to check all details about them or read their TOS. Which I have to do later. I like to know if anyone heard about them or have experience working with them.

Also if you can, plz check them and post their details. Such as a if they have a setup fee, printing rules anything important which publishers should check.

Just quickly grabbed this from there FAQ

6. Are there Setup Fees for my job?

Not anymore! Files submitted to ComiXpress which meet our Specifications are no longer charged any Setup or PrePress fees. In these tough economic times we realized this would help more up-and-coming artists get their work out there, and that really is why we’re here.

The general concensus on the internet is that Comixpress has better service (it seems by a small margin) than Ka-Blam but Ka-blam offers higher print quality and variety in sizes.

Now we  are having doubts about print quality of Kabalm. There was a mistake in first copy cory had ordered and after complaining they sent another copy which has same mistake. This is not something happened from a print on demand type publisher.

any idea on whats going to happen with that? i mean, if the replacement of a messed up print is messed up then why bother with a company that treats its customers like that?

Only reason to use Kabalm is they are the only one which is cost effective for smaller publications like ours. But with these print problems we have to think again before giving them MRA 3.

So Comixpress.com going to be our next option!

Yeah. We try to keep the price as low as possible. Same time trying to keep the best quality.

Problem is we haven't seen many reviews about comixpress.com So we have no info about how their service is.

The biggest problem we have with Comixpress is communication. These guys don't reply fast. It takes ages. Very discouraging.

I think it's always take around a month not less. That's the problem with these print on demand guys. Service is not the best you get. But I'll ask Cory about it.

We will be doing the 4th Anthology soon and now I have doubts about using  Comixpress for it. But again we have problems with Ka-blam too and Lulu is too expensive.
