    Default Photo Postcard Printing

    I am looking for places to print postcards from my photography
    for resale in stores. Does anyone have suggestions for quality
    low cost printing solutions?

    I would appreciate the leg up.
    Thanks

    Try a commercial printer with a digital press, they can do short runs, as low as 50 to 100 coppies, the quality will be the same as commerciaslly produced post cards.

    I hate to say it but people like vista print might be your best bet, although make sure they dont add a printer stamp on your product.

    we do DL postcards for $150 for 100, double sided, 360 gsm paper, full colour both sides, all design included.

    I've been giving serious thought to getting some post cards printed, too.

    This offer looks pretty good - but I can't find their freight price list to see if they ship internationally. Any ideas?

    Hmm, not sure about that - drop them an e-mail and ask, I've found them to be very responsive.

    Might be worth weighing up printing yourself. I have a Mitsubishi CP9550DW printer that uses 6x4 paper rolls that have postcard bits on the backside.

    .....infact you've just given me an idea

    How many do you need anyway? Because lower runs are cheaper with digital printers and higher runs are cheaper with off set printers.

    Default Postcard Printing Referral

    Modern Postcard does a fantastic, professional, top notch job on printing. Modern Postcard - High quality printing and direct mail marketing They are reasonably priced, although not for those cutting corners.

    Many professional color labs also do nice postcards.
    http://acilab.com/ is my portrait lab and they offer postcards.
    Pro Photo Lab: Photo Prints, Press Printed, Press Books | WHCC has awesome paper choices and are my favorite.
