I highly recommend T-dragon too! I was served by Connie and she is very pro and fast in explaining the reason for the layout to us. (layout has a general rule but they are flexible enough to accept options too)
Then when I forgot to email them our fathers' name the following day, Connie called to remind me. Excellent follow-up service and although I haven't received my prints, I am very confident of T-Dragon.
erms. my impression of jason is quite good after i met up with him. maybe he have changed?
initially after reading the forum, i was quite hesistant to give him a call becos i was aftaid of getting scolding or having to take his nonsence.
but no! when he answered my call, he gave me a very friendly tone n i asked abt how i can arrange to go down to his office. after that i hanged up and discussed with my fh abt what time & when we should go down.
so after i got the details, i called jason again. he is still as friendly. n after arranging the meetup, he told me to call him abt 15-20 mins before i drop in his place.
so yesterday, i called him and than dropped in. he served us and attentively taught us how to fill in the forms for the names n dates in chinese and other stuffs like grandparents still ard. i wouldn't know how to fill if not for him =)
den before we left, he say he will send me the templates on mon. but i checked my email last nite, it was already in. i din spot any error in the template he send me.
T-drag*n was very disappointing, business must be damn good, we waited an hour to get attended to.
Their price is not fantastic, delivery is 3 weeks and to make it worst, the person we talked to wasn't honest. We were told express in 7days is $60 more, when we just overheard $50 quoted to the couple beside us.
Here's the price we got quoted,
Normal print (insert) - 200pcs for $100, subsequent $0.20ea
Shine print (insert) - 100pcs for $120, subsequent $0.40ea
Shine print on card - 100pcs for $130, subsequent $0.40ea
In the end, we walked out, looking for other printers now. Anyone got recommendations?
No recommendation needed liao. My problem was resolved by my PP coordinator, Linda. She called T-dragon and got hold of Connie who is now assisting me with my printworks. Connie is indeed the person to look for. She is friendly, humourous and more sincere too
Do u all directly ask for Connie when reach T-Dragon? Can see that she is very popular in this forum.I called up T-dragon, they say need to jux walk -in & any1 can juz attend to u. But I was worried pf the service from other staff. Can I jux walk in and ask for Connie?
We just ordered our cards from T-Dragon last thursday. Attended to by Connie. She is indeed very friendly and keep apologising to us for keeping us waiting as there were at least 4-5 couples before us when we went there in the evening.
The printing will takes about 2-3 weeks, poses no problem to us at all. Coz I presume that you should have buffer enough time and not do last minute printing. Morover, I would rather they take their time to do a good job than do it fast & with errors... IMHO (^.^)
ITA w. u! I went back there again (recently printed our inserts w. them) to enquire rates for printing of cards with photos for our solemnisation. That lady was so damn unfriendly loh... & when I told her the qty is little about 30 or 40pcs. Instead of telling me tactfully that they have a minimum qty, she kept frowning & saying its too little, as if she don't care a damn for my business!! And at first, she like so reluctant to entertain me! She saw me standing there & yet pretended not to see... It wasn't even crowded then, only another customer collecting cards outside. *Piangz*
If not for Connie, seriously I won't go back there again! The rest seriously need to polish up their customer svc skills or at least learn to smile more!
Those doing Church wedding or not so formal invites..
Why dun u DIY/
U design ur own cards using adobe /ppt - if it's a simple A5 postcard size, get the bras basah printer to print double side on an A3 size and cut it up.
I checked - 1 side colour $2, dbl side $4.
1 pc A3 ppr can cut out 8pcs of card = 50cents/pc .
Paper u provide ur own - say pc A3 size 3-3.50$ /8 = 40cents = total abt $1/pc.
Which means - 1 A3 size gives me 8pcs, I need 280cards, I will need to buy 35pcs A3 size pprs for printing. = 35pcsx3.50(ppr cost)=$122.50, + 35pcsx$4(printing cost)=$140. Total $262.50 for 280 pcs. excluding envelope. ABt 95cents/pc.
if i buy online or shops they charge u 1.50- 2/pc postcard size. =P so if u intend to do something like that. DIY. more time n effort but u save cash..little bit more but still..=P
As for dinner invites, just get the hotel to provide, if u are not particular of the card type.
Or just make ur own postcard size, go popular buy simple envelopes of 20pc that cost u only 2plus..and insert that in. =P u save actually.. u dun have to worry abt printer charging u $20/20 inserts n cards. Think if u get fr them they shld give u a discounted rate since u already purchase from them..oh well..
mt hotel giving 80% cards inlcg printing - simple statdard printing. Am sticking w tht cuz having extra hotstamp is indeed waste of precious money. Can see words ok already. =P
Do this only if you intend not to have envelope.
For me im doing this for my church wedding - so postcard style - envelopes arent necessary I think. and insert them into the hotel provided ones. Those only invited to church will get just the postcards. =P
Ppl dun keep wedding cards, si dun waste uncessary money on them. =P save them for your honeymoon..=P
My hotel uses Jasvy, and had very bad experience. Made a lot of very obvious mistakes, some that can be quite offending, like putting Mr XXX instead of Mr and Mrs XXX. wat le. cursing my mom is not around?! and eldest son in Chinese words is correct, but in English, put youngest son! A lot of mistakes that is obviously due to carelessness.
But yes, their printing is very fast!
I went Tdragon last weekend n was served by a auntie. I would say her attitude sucks to the core..when she open mouth, nothing comes out except $$$$$$$ everything she said, all started with tis 1 $$$ that 1 cost $$$ u need express service, top up $$$$...
Me & my HTB were pretty turned off by their service. We were suppose to liase with Connie but at that point of time Connie was not in so was served by tis auntie. $ was not an issue to us just that sometimes things were not just abt $$ but service and attitude from the staff!
We left the shop with a black face cos of her..we intend to look for other printers. Any good recc? =)
wiwi: I engaged Kentrich Trade Press to do the printing of inserts. I visited their place @ Depot Road, but u need to call and make appt with them first.
The person-in-charge is Helen. She's very very nice to talk to. They are fast with the draft artwork, and there was no problem with it.
I called T-dragon prior to going to Kentrich. The woman who answered the call was kind of rude. Hung up abruptly the moment she felt that I was done with my enquiry. Hence, there goes their business too.
I went to t-dragon and was served by Connie who has been very helpful. I believe it depends very much on the individual staff who serves u. Maybe they should follow the threads here to know that they have "black sheep" in their company.
Wow Avatar, (or can we call u Catherine since ur name is already on the card hehe), ur invitation looks great! care to share the name, contact and address of the printer? I'm also currently selecting the cards etc. Went to American Wedding treasures to choose cards but will print elsewhere.. wondering if we can get better deals at T Dragon or at ur printer. Thanks!!!
hehehe... I printed at T & T printers at JB city square. hehe.. As it was in Malaysia, it was cheaper since it was all charged in ringgit.
Actually i like the full colour church postcards the best. Only about S$0.30 to $0.40 per piece. Paper quality also very good. I chosen the rose texture to complement my theme. Alot of different types of paper for you to choose from.
Service wise very fast. One time go there to choose the design. They can do the draft artwork on the spot within 1 hr. Can collect the cards within a week. so only need to go down 2 times.
Jia Jia: Of course the cost must include the paper as well. hehehe...
Actually JB is not that far. I just treat it as a 1 day getaway relaxation trip. Go there eat seafood then do some wedding stuff. hahaha... i go JB almost every weekend. Actually my BS is also from JB. hehe..
I just used tdragon for my wedding cards. I must say they are SUPER SUPER arrogent or too comfy. Yes I know many hotels use them for the wedding invites but it's no excuse to go lacking on the service attitude. Everything is add $$$$, add logos add $$, add ink add $$..
so yes i went to malaysia for my wedding cards too n guess what? The entire cost of the wedding cards PLUS all de logos u want PLUS gold printing PLUS envelopes and inserts PLUS print the couples pic on every card PLUS free gifts shuangxi stickers n ang paos n key chains cost LESS than the mere basic PRINTING in Tdragon. after i asked them they said something abt quality.. n no policy to give free gifts rubbish.. like please lo my cards from msia look so much better than their carrefore cards n cost less!
now im waiting for them to refund me money for overcharging me. cos they told me to pay first n get it back from hotel, now the hotel said is supposed to be refunded from them.. so im merry go round with them. sigh... will never never ever ever recommend anyone to go tdragon. ex n no service n cards r of lousy quality! seriously i regret it n wished i did them all in msia!
I have send my 200 cards to jasvy for my wedding card insert printing yesterday .. And I collected today. Very pleased with their service and attitude. Thank you very much ivy and Jason. They really give you good advice. Their fees is also reasonable(total cost plus tie is $115) They did not even require "express" fee, I just told them I am urgent for the cards. And they get it done within a day. Thank you jasvy
