i saw i success. they used digital printing. if your pictures are of high res, then no prob.
for the other 2, the contact was given to me by a fellow yc bride called mehmeh. the prices are definitely affordable else she will not recommend. i think they are cheaper than i success. i had seen the card's picture and its wonderful! give them a call lah..
hi minssey, thanks for the info, do they have 'off the rack' designs or can i design my own card? i don't want to feel restricted by their items but sometimes it is very difficult to find something ideal to my liking. have seen a couple of shops, the nice ones are very expensive like $4.50 and the rest are quite ching chong.
i think it is quite varied depending on your requirement. If i'm not mistaken, it can range from about $1.40-1.50 or so to about $4-5 depending on the design...but what i like about them is that i had a budget, so they helped me work out something by adjusting the materials and design such that I still get almost the original design but within my budget.
Can i check with you, when you mention inserts, you mean separate pierce of paper that you put into the card with silver string is it? If yes, after printing, will the printer put the inserts into the card b4 they give you or will give you the strings and you have to assemble them yourself?
Compared to actual gold printing onto the cards itself, how much is the price diff does anyone knows? Txs!!
U're right tt inserts refer to having a seperate piece of paper & attached with a gold/silver string. U wld have to put in the inserts yourself unless u are willing to pay the printers to do so for you.
Some provide the strings, cut strings or sell the strings. Varies fr printer to printer..
Do u mean to refer actual gold printing onto the cards as hotstamping? Tt's def more exp than inserts. By far the cheapest rate for inserts are by Hi-Tech..
Price difference again varies from printer to printer & the quantity to be printed, better to give them a ring
Anyone can recommend a good printer/card designer at low cost? I need to print around 70 cards as mine will be just a wedding reception. I tried to get quotations from Ola Design but it's quite ex. She quoted $4-$5 per card.
I hv also shorlisted Kentrich...tink they charges quite cheap..actually i don't mean hot stamping..wat i mean is direct priniting on the card itself with normal printing will do...tink dis way save $$ and time to buy ribbon and tie on the card...not too sure direct printing will be cheaper?? for your price is any cute icons included??
Oh then ur idea's the same as mine, coz I def didn't want to do inserts & hotstamping is ridiculous. More often than not the card serves only the purpose of informing.. I believe it is cheaper than inserts. U wld need to pay for inserts & some printers the strings as well
I didn't have any cute icons, becoz the cover is quite cute oredi..
hi ginger, i thought mellotex is a white paper not translucent? is antalis a paper supplier? i think if you buy from them, you have to buy in bulk like 500 pieces of paper, the big sheet type...then you have to cut yourself as well...don't think the printers will use the paper you buy yourself to print.
I have already mail you the contacts for the printer. U can call and tell them roughly what you want and they can give you a rough quote.
I printed 350 copies of inserts for abt $100, and they gave me extra 30 plus copies without extra charges.
