That's funny....

When I go back to the shop I'll get you a price list too! They have some great packages with business cards and post cards too. My memory says 345.00 for 1000 business cards and 1000 3 x 5 postcards. That's what I'm thinking of doing right now. I'm working on the postcard design, that's whats been holding me up.

Too long here. :)

Yeah, would never go to a "copy center" for business card needs. If you go there to get cards made, you really have not done your homework. Totally different process. I do the full color card thing all the time (I have 7 different cards, all full color) but I am always looking for a deal. I'm actually waiting here as we speak for 40,000 new cards, hopefully they'll arrive via air cargo today. My brother contracts full color printing as a business, so he gives me his cost on stuff, which is nice, but I was used to paying in the neighborhood of $150-$175 for 5000 cards prior to him doing this.

The thing I wonder about is the quality of the paper. There's a pretty big difference in quality when it comes to 12pt vs 16pt, so I was trying to see what you were getting for that $90. It's a good deal, no doubt, one of the cheaper deals I've seen available to the public.

I would love to keep a running tab of what everyone is doing for business cards here at DVinfo. I'm going to start a collection of business cards from the users of this forum (starting with my own of course!) and what method they used to create/print them so other people can reference them. I'll post this in another post, but I think I will have people start sending their cards my way as well as a scanned digital of them and I will post them up for all the forum members to see.

Would you guys be interested in something like that?
