call your favorite small rock venue and ask them who prints their posters.

What do you need to have printed, and how? If you give more specifics I might be able to recommend a shop.

I think word of mouth works best. I’m a graphic designer in NYC, but I did a job for client in LA and we used this printer. I was happy with both the knowledgeable staff and the quality of the printed product:

nuprint & graphics

818.509.0003

Other communities who might know include your local AIGA chapter:

or your local Graphic Artists’ Guild chapter, which seems to have a list of printers in their ‘resources’ area: http://losangeles.gag.org/newresources.html/

@aielee: Specifically, I’m looking for non-letterpressed business cards that aren’t printed on crappy semi-glossy stock.

I work with Southern California graphics in Culver City a lot. They’re a full-service print shop. They have a new digital press that will make printing a small-run of business cards pretty cheap, and they’ll print on whatever kind of stock you want. Send an email to Rick rick_h@socalgraph.com or call (310) 559–3600.

you could send me the file and I could print it and ship it. I’m a designer in Norfolk, VA.
