Option 2 - Quick, Quantity Solution
I've got a card already. I like your prices and I love the strong, quality paper that it's printed on. Can you help me out?
Well, we could BUT what we would print is considered a second generation. Often details are lost or there is a little fuzziness. A good eye would catch it. We would prefer to print from electronic print ready files or to redesign your card. Of course, the decision is yours. Depending on how you're distributing the cards, (such as standing on the corner and handing them to everyone who passes) a little fuzzy might be OK.
Option 3 - Design Help Needed
We design your card.
You supply your logo, pay to have one designed, or select from one of our stock logos . Any pictures need to be in a hi-res format (350 dpi). Assembly of supplied, images, typing and design fees are charged. Minimum charge for design is $50 and must accompany request for services. Typically, this involves 2 hours and one time correction. Additonal time is billed at $20 an hour.
Other fonts or calligraphy can be requested. There is an additional charge.
