Budget-Friendly…those two words together are music to the ears of a homeschool mama, am I right? Homeschool supplies, books, extracurricular activities, printing…things add up SO fast! Well, I am here to share an awesome way to save a little money on your printing orders! If you have ever paid to get things printed at one of the big chain stores, you may have noticed that it is CRAZY EXPENSIVE. My jaw dropped the first time I had a ton of printing done…printing it cost more than the actual curriculum! I have a fabulous budget-friendly alternative for you! Family Nest Printing is an absolutely wonderful company, and their printing prices are a FRACTION of the cost of the big chain stores!!

I am so excited to share my thoughts with you about Family Nest Printing. They contacted me a month or so ago and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their company. I absolutely jumped at the chance! One of my favorite things to do is to support small businesses and spread the word about them…and I was just about ready to place a printing order, so the timing couldn’t have been more perfect.
I was absolutely blown away with the quality of the products I received. Everything arrived beautifully packaged and was such incredible quality. I ordered printed and bound material for my children and myself and it was all perfect. The teacher manual I ordered for myself was ENORMOUS…it was a full 188 pages! I often worry about getting such large volumes bound, but it is so sturdy and well bound! The manual came with a large coil binding, a black plastic-like back, and a vinyl front cover. They do also offer the choice of a laminated front cover, but I decided to go with the vinyl and I absolutely LOVE it. They are able to coil bind up to 300 pages!!!
For the paper, I went with 28lb paper. It is a Science Teacher Guide so I figured it would be getting a lot of wear and tear. It is such a beautiful weight paper and the printing is just fantastic. Not blurry, no smudges, just awesome! Each order comes standard with 24lb paper, so the 28 is an upgrade but it is dreamy :). You are able to choose black and white or color as well as single or double-sided. I did everything in black and white and the Teacher Guide came with a free color printed cover which is such a lovely touch!

In addition to printing and binding, Family Nest Printing also offers a wonderful line of other merchandise! They offer homeschool planners, student planners, candles, and mugs! You guys…the mugs are SO AWESOME! I am majorly eyeballing the “Alexa, skip to Friday” campfire mug!!! Also, Mulled Cider Candle…I can almost smell it!
Ok, I mentioned that the pricing is a fraction of the cost of the big chain stores. For real…it is. Here is a little guide that shows price comparisons to the larger stores. As someone who has used the larger chains in the past, I can tell you that these prices are accurate and it is SO insane. The quality from Family Nest Printing was so much better than my previous experience with the larger stores also. I also think it is so important to support smaller businesses when we can! They pour their heart into their products and I think it shows! Here is a sample pricing chart…look at those numbers!!
The current turn-around time on orders is 2-3 weeks. They keep their website very up to date with shipping times so that you won’t have any surprises when you go to place your order! Right at the top of their website, you will be able to see their current turn-around times.
