Looking for a new source for print-on-demand services that could do what I needed, I browsed an old resource page that I'd bookmarked at Spotlight on Games. There I found a reference to Print and Play Productions, which seemed to fit the bill perfectly. On Wednesday, I placed an order and sent a note to the owner, Andrew Tullsen, just to let him know where I'd found out about his company and that I looked forward to doing business with him. He responded the next day to say that he had checked my files, that everything looked good, and that he hoped to ship my order that week.

Now, this might not sound like a big deal, but business is all about relationships and reputation. Relationships and reputation are built on respect and trustworthiness. If this first transaction is any indication, Print and Play Productions will be a regular source for my prototypes in the future.
