hey y'all
I love Moo for my business cards, they are cheap and they are quality and they are fast. However they do not make leave behind cards over 4x5. I really want something 5x7, 6x9. Can anyone recommend a printer (either local in New York City or online) that is comparable to Moo?

thanks
karen

I have used http://www.4by6.com/ with pretty good results and for el-cheapo stuff I have used www.overnightprints.com with hit or miss quality.

Modern Postcard used to be the place everybody used but I don't know what's up with them these days...

This might not work if you plan on printing a bunch of cards, but when I print my portfolio pages, I have a 5x11 inch scrap of paper... I print 5x7's on those with my logo and number on them and trim them to 5x7, custom for the client that is looking at my book... It's like a fine art print! :-)

hey brooks, for the longest time i printed my own cards at home because i have a nice printer and i could control everything and i could change the layout, images etc whenever i wanted. i came to realize though that this just isn't professional enough looking. when presenting my books to AD's or whomever i just feel that even the most gorgeous home made card doesn't work for my presentation. so i've switched to commercial printing. but thank you for the suggestion.

I second the overnightprints.com suggestion. I use my home inkjet to print the addresses on the back side. I usually do short runs of like 100 and will often reprint the cards if my exposure is off in CMYK Confused

I usually go to walmart and print a bunch of 4x6's for 8 cents a piece unless I get a free set from vista print so I have them on the thicker paper.

They're not very thick but for the price they can't be beat.

When I order from Vistaprint I think I pay $6 for shipping for 100 post cards when I get one of there free postcards, b-cards, banners, t-shirt, etc emails.

Third recommendation for overnight prints. Just had a client use them for some promo cards using one of my images, and they were very happy with the quality. I suggest not using the absolute cheapest shipping, because they sit on the order too long then. I have also used them for my business cards, with glossy on one side and matte finish on the other.
