Guru Printers are awesome and easy to work with! Ed answered all my questions in a timely manner. I had a tight deadline for a client in DTLA and Ed helped me get my projects printed on time. I will definitely be using them again! Thanks Guru Printers!!!

I've been using Guru for some time now and they have been nothing but great. Ed and the crew do such a nice job of talking you through the process and also helping you set up your files. I think the best part of Guru is that you can submit files online and pick them up a few days later in their DTLA location inside of the Macy's Plaza on 7th and Fig. They also have a great turnaround time. My past two orders had very tight deadlines and Guru was able to deliver as promised. Keep up the good work, Guru!

Guru Printers is a fantastic find! Not only is it a relief to talk to a real human being each time you call, the customer service is knowledgeable and really go above and beyond (thanks Ed!). Too often, you run into businesses and people who cannot flex with the situation, but the people at Guru Printers are problem solvers. Ed dealt expertly with a tight deadline, a lost check, and an anxious assistant (me!), and offered helpful alternatives and solutions each step of the way. I cannot recommend Guru Printers enough!

I had such a great experience working with Guru Printers/Prism Printing's Ed & Sam. I used to use another printer a few blocks away but they were always so unpleasant to work with. Ed & Sam are a breath of fresh air amidst the busy downtown environment. They take their time explaining what's the best, most cost-effective option for your print job. I truly appreciate their honesty and promptness. I'm so happy I finally found such a reliable and friendly printer (and so close to my office too!).

This place turned out to be a great find for my printing needs. I tried it out after receiving an offer from google. When I placed my order and didnt follow instructions due to my own fault, the company offer to correct it for me... with a smile. And the order was delivered promptly and flawlessly. Easy to order through their DIY website that saves you tons of money This is just a printer, but one that ensures positive experience even when things go wrong. I will be back for more orders in the next few months when we move office for my other business. Thanks a million for the better than expected service that "Wows" me.

Ed is fantastic! Guru Printers always comes through with my rush jobs and their prices can't be beat. I use these guys for my biggest client and the finished product is always stellar. I highly recommend!

I had a rush job that my regular printer could not do, so I called around and found Ed at Guru Printers, I emailed my file and he got it done that same afternoon. Excellent service and perfect quality work. I will definitely be using them again. Ken Hunter City Grill Mediterranean Restaurant

Let me start off by saying that I am always skeptical of places that get a ton of 5 star reviews... but WOW does this place deliver! The only downside is that it's a complete pain in the rear to get to the location because there is so much construction going on at the Macy's plaza in DTLA. The good news is that everything can be done online and you don't actually have to go! (I found that out the hard way, lol) I needed a book printed... a very important book to me as it is one my mother wrote before she passed away last year. I wanted it to be perfect (which is why I went in person to see the quality of the materials). Since Guru Printing gave me the lowest price by far of any other printing house (I had quotes that were more than 4 times their price!!!) I wanted to make sure they weren't going to skimp on quality. I am SO impressed by the books! They look amazing. I can't wait to print a second run soon. These guys are the BEST!

Love Guru Printers for all printing needs! I found this place for my nonprofit's printing needs: outreach materials, gala invites, business cards, brochures, etc. The prices are reasonable, and Ed & his team are just awesome! They have really good communication and customer service. A+ The only downside is the pickup location is a little hard to find the first time around. You park at the Bloc, where Macy's and LA Fitness is. The walk into the building is a bit of a maze, but the security people are helpful. They also validate parking!

Awesome place!! I had to order my business cards and didn't know where to go. Found Guru printing on yelp and decided to check out their website. Their price is great! Got 250 front and back business cards with 16pt thickness matte coating for like $30 (in store pick up). I love how Ed the manager (?) Is fast with replying to your emails. He replies even after work hours. It was kind of hard to find the location because the Macy's mall is doing construction.. but found somewhere that looked like the front desk and the guy calles Guru printing and took me to the elevators. If you're wondering where they are located, go thought the glass doors on flower street and go through the elevators. I will definitely order from them again!

I wanted to surprise a friend by making a custom mug. I yelped "custom mugs" and Guru Printers popped up! They were so awesome. I needed the mug in an hour and they did it in an hour with no extra charge, beautifully done. The ordering process is so easy and simple online with a reasonable price. I will definitely be coming back with my printing needs. :)

Great place and super friendly costumer service. I have gone there in 2 different occasions to get passport photos done and they have always come out great. At this place you can just walk in and there is almost no wait at all! They take the photo and print it on site to its super easy and fast. Currently because of renovations being done to the building there are located on the 12th floor ... this was hassle. No one could give me proper instructions on how to get to the elevators that would take me up to the 12th floor. I was lost for about 20 min ... :/ The entrance is the side - double glass doors, check-in with the receptionist there and they will usher you to the elevators. If it was any other place I would have bailed but since I really like their service ...

Victoria D. Pasadena, CA

The location was a little confusing to find due to all the construction at the Macy Plaza, but you can't blame the business for that! :) I was in a hurry right in the middle of the holiday season to get cards made for our company. I was freaking out because FedEx' prices were WAY too expensive for the amount of cards I was getting. Though they do expedite services, I needed to find an alternative when I found Guru Printing. They did the job within a few hours for me and even WAITED to close the store until I could up the cards. Even though I was delayed due to the traffic around the busy rush hour in DTLA, they waited for me and were courteous with their customer service. I definitely plan on using their printing services again! Prices were much cheaper than all the other places I called along with FedEx. Also, the workers who answered the calls were prompt about communicating with me along with updating me the progress of the project. Thank you Guru Printers! I wouldn't have had my problem solved without you!
