Which problem does prinux solve?

prinux makes getting business cards easier than ever. How it works: submit your templates once, have prinux set them up for free, and order whatever you need online, time after time.
You complete a one-time submission of your design template(s) to prinux. prinux sets up an online catalog of your corporate materials free of charge. After just a few days, your individual corporate business card can be ordered online.

Only the most modern, optimized, and automated processes are used to set up print templates, to do the actual print, and for finishing. This allows for a drastic reduction in manufacturing costs.
