Review: business cards

I do very little by way of printed promo material, and most of it I print at home as and when required. But I could do with having some business cards to hand out my contact details at cons, and the business cards might as well double as promo material. However, I need so few that I can't justify doing a batch for each book.

Enter and their Printfinity system. You can put a different image on the reverse of every card in the batch, if you so desire. Which means that I can order a box of 50, and get a mix of all of my book covers. And they do a completely free sample box of 10, not even a charge for postage. The price is in the form of their own logo on the image side of the card, but it's small and discreet. So I thought I might as well have a play with the system and see what the quality is like.

Overall -- I'm a very satisfied customer. The quality was excellent, and while there was a problem with one order, it was fixed quickly and politely. The only niggle I've got is that there doesn't seem to be a way of storing your images on their system other than as part of a design project. You have to re-upload each time you start a new project. But since they don't charge a fee for uploading images (unlike many card printers), and you can save and edit projects, this is not much of an issue. They also do postcards, greeting cards and stickers, although I haven't seen physical samples of those yet. On my experience so far, I'd be happy to recommend them to other authors looking for small print run options on promo materials. The one problem they have from a promo material perspective is that the laminate makes it difficult to write on them, so you'll need to take along something like a marker pen or photo pen to sign them or add details by hand.

And since they have a "refer a friend" bribery and corruption scheme... If you go through the link below, you'll get 10% off your first order (and I will get a discount off my next order:-> ).
