  • printed photo's on cards

    Hi I have a friend who takes his own photo's and wants to have them professionally printed onto greetings cards for his own use. As it's not something I know anything about I wondered if anyone had used a service like this or had any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    I have no personal experience but a close friend of mine did this... even after checking dozens of print companies, she struggled for ages to get the results she wanted. Colour calibration was an issue apparently.

    Dunno if it will help, but her advice is:- get test print samples using his own images rather than relying on stock samples...make sure he is 100% happy with the results then negotiate the price...get agreed terms in writing. Check items once delivered and do not accept anything less than what he paid for/agreed.

        I use Moo to get them in small numbers, to see how they look, then a local printer who is also a graphic designer so works on my images for me, to get them just right.

            I think, with photos, it also depends what grade of card/paper you print them on. My sister in law prints them on photo paper and then incorporates them into the card.
