I need Business Cards printed

Post by MANIMAL » Mon Apr 10, 2006 8:08 pm

All designed up, my wife is in need of printing services for her business cards.

Im looking for suggestions within the USA - websites that print quality cards for the best prices.

I have searched for companies - but i am looking for actual suggestions from people on here who have personally used a specific company and had a great experience.

If you want a heavy card stock with a nice gloss on the card I recommend www.gotprint.com ... we do all our stuff with them.

Actually, if it's your basic business card, Kinko's does a nice job and they're not too pricey. I've recommended them to some of my freelance clients as far as printing goes. Haven't had any complaints.

Thanks for the referrals guys.
Just depends on what's more important I suppose. Cost or quality.
Letterpress is more costly, but there's nothing like it.

Is there a particular reason not to use Kinko's? Did you have a bad run there, or just don't like them, used to work there and hate the company, or what? Opinions on the services various places offer are always welcome, but a generic "Don't use so-and-so" doesn't really tell anyone anything that might be important.

all kinkos do are basically semi-high end computer printouts or photocopies of the artwork. if your going to go that route, find a good high end digital printer. better quality at a decent price and at least you will be supporting a small business.

i only even offer kinkos as an option if the client is extremely tapped out and is thinking about printing their own cards themselves. its the bottom of the barrel as far a printing goes.

but everyone has their own resources/suggestions. i just would not recommend kinkos, there are much better options out there.

If you already have the design, I could also suggest printing them out yourself. They have some pretty good business card paper at Staples. I just bought the ones that can pop off so you don't have to painstakingly cut them.

http://www.overnightprints.com/ has been fantastic for me. I've used them multiple times throughout the past few years and have not had a single problem.

Great prices, quality printing, quality paper stock (nothing flimsy)

They also have Super quick turnaround times. I've never had a late shipment; in fact, each of my orders have come before the estimated date of arrival. They have great customer service and you can actually talk to a competent human being, rather than a robot.

http://us.moo.com/ is cool because you can have multiple designs for your business card order. However, I've had friends experience problems with the print quality and even a late delivery (almost a week late)

I get most of my business cards done at https://www.printpeppermint.com/. The cards are top quality at competitive rates. They also offer discount of atleast 30%-40% on all cards.

I don't come on here anymore, well just to break balls.

I almost lost it when I saw the author of this thread. Should have known what had happened.
