  • How do I retrieve "bid requests" off the PIE system?

    The PIE system offers two service packages (the Associate and the Executive).
    • With the Associate membership you are notified by email of any new bids submitted in the categories you sign up for. From the email message you can go directly to the website search area for that particular category. Cost: $64 per month with credit card.
    • With the Executive membership, you are emailed the entire bid from the categories you choose. Cost: $72 per month with credit card.
    • Both include access to the "Member/Holding Tank" area with the use of a username and password, at any time . . . 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

  • Do I have to receive bids through my email?

    No, you do not. You would need to signup for the Associate Membership. When you fill out the Membership Application do not sign up for any of the printing categories. You will be given passwords to access the "Holding Tank" and can go in at anytime to check out new bids.
  • Do you have a FREE trial membership?

    No, we do not. You can join on a monthly basis and cancel before the 1st of any month (giving us 15 days notice in writing).
