Namecards

Postby Hanesa » Thu, 13 Jul 2006 2:17 am

We have been printing our namecards using canon bubblejet printer and find that its more cost effective. We are thinking of using this method to sell to others who need immediate and affordable namecards.

We can have this ready within the same day.

We need feedback before we can post in classified : Would $12.00 (black print) for a box of 100 namecards & $15.00 for full color be competitive price to sell?

I won't buy from a supplier that prints in a bubble jet, the print quality is lousy and smudges, and definitely doesn't look professional.

I get mine printed professionally, sharp printing quality, perhaps using laser quality or better for a box of 100 at S$8.80 (with colour..) They can even throw in delivery for me at a nominal price.

I would have to agree with joop. When I run out on a weekend, I print my own cards using an upper end Epson printer and while it is pretty sharp the inks are only good on Epson Papers (use a different paper like Konica for cost reasons and you will find that the inks don't dry sufficiently or hard enough). Also the businesscard stock using canon papers or epson papers isn't quite heavy enough for professional use. I also find that the colours tends to change over time. Professional? Not!

Silly questions: What is the difference between Name cards and Business cards? What is the purpose of a name card vs. business card? Just got off the plane and not much is making sense at the moment, probably won't all week. :???:
