Gita, if it is a small job we will use our own printer.  Our office has a great printer for color copies and we use that as well.

I don't use a lot of print material anymore, so generally just print things out from my printer. If I wete to do something in mass, I would certainly use a professional at that point.

The answer is .. both.   Business cards and postcards I have professsionally printed, and certain flyers for buyers or listing packets where I want maximum professional impact.  Everything else I do myself.  Today's home printers are pretty good these days.

Hi Gita. I order my postcards from xpressdocs.com I can make my own design and upload it which is a plus. More cost effective that way.

For expired listing letters I buy paper and envelopes from Office Depot now called Office Max.

For flyers I print my own with my sturdy and reliable HP color laser printer which is a workhorse.

Printing full color full page on the Epson costs about 33 cents a page.

The office charges 15 cents on the color laser.

If the marekting material has self life such as a guide or book or reference material, I will have a printer do a better job than I can with binding and all.

When I print I use my own desktop printer or office and I use Market Leader for direct mail aka postcard printing. I let Buffini print my items of value. What is most important is tracking results. All my print marketing material has unique QR codes and web links. By the way, what do you do?

Due to logistics (our office is located on an island) and the fact that our listing information needs to be regularly updated, we print our own marketing materials.  We use a laser printer and high-quality glossy stock.

Gita- I don't use a lot of printed materials so I use my printer for what I need.  I'm always changing my material anyway, so it wouldn't be cost effective for me to have them printed.
