A Quick Tour

Easy to Use

Clean • Friendly • Intuitive

The friendly design of Printer's Plan makes it easy to get things done. You and your employees will breeze through Printer’s Plan for preparing estimates, entering orders, scheduling jobs, tracking time, billing, and collecting receivables. And your customers will appreciate Printer's Plan's easy online ordering and file submission.


  • Clear and organized screens.
  • Color-coded windows and icons.

  • Quick and powerful search functions.

Accurate Specs

Digital • Offset • Large Format

Printer's Plan will help you define the production process for each item you produce, using as much detail—or as little—as you think is necessary to ensure the job is done right. Detailed work orders will help you control costs and reduce errors.


  • All specs are visible in a single window.
  • Create auto reminders/pop-up messages.

Flexible Pricing

Competitive • Profitable

After you define the specs, Printer's Plan prices the job and lets you see the breakdown of pricing in a password-protected window. In this window, you can modify any part of the estimate to arrive at a competitive and profitable price.


  • Override the price of a job by typing the desired price or profit percentage or profit amount by line item or total price.
  • See direct/out-of-pocket costs of material and allocated cost of labor for every job.
  • Set up your pricing system as "cost-plus", "market-based", or a combination of both.


You are in control

  • Assign due dates to services.

  • Prioritize each task, each job.
