Custom card printing

Postby MrBigB » Friday November 8th, 2013 2:48am

While trying to find a way to print HQ cards that would survive the abuse my son tends to dish out, http://printerstudio.com/ was suggested to me by my brother-in-law. The design/ordering process was about as painless as possible given the number of cards I was ordering (90). I just uploaded the card images hosted here (seriously you guys rock) onto the "bridge" sized cards as poker sized we're too short. One note: the art for the backs aren't a 100% perfect match and, as you can see below, there is a sliver of white on the borders, but that was my own damn fault for not catching it before I placed the order :?

I received my set of cards today (not bad, took about a week to arrive) and am super impressed with the quality of the product. The cards feel like a high quality set of retail playing cards, and the art/text turned out super crisp.

Best of all, I got the whole set of 90 cards (I doubled up of the treasure cards) with 2 plastic cases for just under $20.

I will definitely be ordering from them again when it comes time to make the expansion packs!

Great find. What was the option you chose? Something like this along with the ease of having it all done will surely come in handy. I could see some black lotus' coming to me from this company for some casual MTG we occasionally still play.

I would love to see and comment on these, but the images are broken. Can you fix that please?

These are beautiful cards and well worth their money. Must look for a similar service in Germany.

I may try this. Get all the cards I want made. I make decent cards, but they take too damn long. I spent a damn month on what I posted elsewhere.

Wow. Those look awesome. I have a reasonably good printer at home, but home-printing is never as nice and neat as having it done professionally. Unfortunately, I'm super cheap and would balk at the $7.99 pricetag if I was looking to make some more cards, with perhaps one notable exception...

Your printer doesn't print on linen.
