As to printing, it's been a few years since I've had to do any print buying, but you might look to see who's doing printing in Iceland. You didn't say where you were, and whether you needed color or b&w (makes a big difference). Some years ago I saw some print samples from a printer in Iceland (the name unfortunately escapes me at this time), some museum exhibit catalogs, both b&w and color, and the work was absolutely top-notch. Really, some of the best half-tone repro I'd ever seen. Prices were not too bad, even at shorter runs, though more than Hong Kong.
full colour if you can remember any of the printing house names that would be fantastic!
