Best way to print custom cards with professional printer?

Postby Ricky Chops » Wednesday January 2nd, 2019 1:46pm

Hey everyone!

I've been perusing the forum the last month and half after getting back into the game after 25 years (lol) and eventually I want to print custom cards to supplement the existing content. I'm considering taking the cards to a FedEx/Kinkos in my local area. My goal is to print custom cards that look and feel exactly like the ones from the game system, however, I'm not sure how the layout in Photoshop should look or what the image sizes should be.

Any help would be appreciated.

There are actually online card printers that people have used in the past. I haven't used any of them yet, so I'm not sure who they are. I know that people seemed to be really happy with the results in most of the posts I read about them. I'd do a search on here for online card printing to see what pops up.

Printerstudio works internationally. Very good quality although the original HQ card size is not available.
