Business Cards Needed

Hello.

I need to get some business cards for a non-profit I'm doing on the side.

I still need to do the graphics work, and will likely need some input there, but just curious who would be good to use for printing.

Are any of the on-line services any good? I dont need super high-end, but would like decent quality, as we dont plan to hand out a lot.

Any input would be appreciated.

Regards,

while not as good as offset, we have had good luck getting stuff done for clients on the cheap with psprint.com

psprint has some great prices. If you're in more of a hurry, I'd recommend 48hourprint.com, although they are a bit more pricey. I think both places offer 14pt glossy and 13pt matte stock.

Thanks for the couple of suggestions.

I guess I should add that I live in Canada (Toronto area). I did a quick look at psprint, and they are going to charge $20 to ship 200 cards. Still do-able, but a little on the high side....

4over.com has good prices and excellent quality.
They also have a couple of nice features, such as a custom printer driver for creating trouble-free press-ready PDF files from any program, and RSS feeds for current jobs in progress.

BTW, I have yet to receive a printed document from this service that does not perfectly match the display on my iMac.

I used gotprint.com http://gotprint.net/gotprint/welcome.do for some prayer cards I did for a friend and they came out pretty well. 5,000 business cards for $46.55.

I second OvernightPrints. I get many compliments on my cards. $75 or more will get you free shipping, but it only applies to continental U.S.

Go with something different than regular styled cards.

Third. I have all my printing done by them; They have a quality print job, offer discounts and coupons on a regular basis, and the turnaround is pdq.
