Real Customer Reviews

I have been using Printing on 5th for several years, and they have always provided excellent and timely service. I have probably dealt with every single employee at some point, and they have always been helpful and friendly. I recently had a rush order for several cases of specially printed envelopes. I was given a quote for cost and completion date, and it was ready early! They have helped me with numerous things, including my company’s envelopes, business cards, color copies, binding jobs, etc. And I always prefer to support a local business!

Manny, thank you so much for the beautiful 5,000 cards that I picked up today. They look amazing and deferring to you on color worked out great. :) Thanks for being so awesome! Facebook

This place is awesome! I was searching for a place that prints copies on vellum paper and after going to multiple copying locations, this store had me in and out in less than 10 minutes. The owner and staff are really nice. Definitely found my new go to spot for all my printing needs. YELP

    Manny started with Quik Print as a Printing Pressman in 1984. He moved up to Manage his first Shop in Hillcrest in 1985 and within a year took a store which was losing money to a Top 25 Store in the Nation by producing a quality product, priced right, with top Customer Service! Quik Print was bought by XYAN Corporation in 1994 and they sold it to Manny in 2000 to make it “Printing on 5th Avenue”

    When Manny is away from the shop he enjoys NASCAR, practicing his Second Amendment Right, Off Roading in the Trail Teams Edition FJ Cruiser, working on his 1965 Corsa Corvair Convertible and riding his Harleys on the back roads of San Diego County.
