This includes print shops selling directly to the public and industrial scale printers, plus companies providing support services such as binding, plate making, and data imaging. Printing on clothing is included here because the production process is printing, not clothing manufacturing.

Please note, promotional items are listed under Business_and_Economy/Advertising_and_Marketing/ and magazines and newspapers under News and Media.

If you are submitting your site for addition to the Open Directory, please read the following carefully. We ask that you choose the best subcategory for your site and submit to that subcategory instead of in the broader Real Estate category.

If you submit your site to this category and it does not belong here, what is likely to happen is that an editor for Real Estate will give it a cursory look and send it to a subcategory without reviewing it. Then, you will have to wait while the editor from the subcategory reviews your site. Save yourself the time and get listed faster: choose an appropriate subcategory to start with.

All real estate agents, and agencies with a single location should submit their sites to the Regional: North America: United States: State: Locality category where their office is located.

Also, remember that this is a directory and not a search engine. Resubmitting your site numerous times will likely not improve your listing or get the editors to change your site''s listing. It will only likely make the volunteer editors annoyed with you.
