Requesting Free Printing Samples from online printers has many benefits for designers. These free print samples not only give you an idea of the quality of work of each printer, but its also a great way to learn and discover the wide variety of different printing techniques available today.

You get to see and feel first hand what different papers and card stocks look and feel like. This will really help you when you need to select options for printing jobs. I often dig into my box of printing samples to refresh my memory of whats available and which printers do what best.
