    Just a Question (Printing)

    Over the years I have seen so much outstanding customs cards many that look better than what the real brands put out, very talented groups of guys you all are on this site, some of this stuff leaves me speechless!! My question is I have bought 3 different printers and spent $$$ on different types of printing and photo paper and my stuff doesn't even come close to what i see some people do here. my question is do you guys really use home printers to print this stuff out or do some of you actually print at a printing shop?? keep up the good work and enjoying seeing many more customs in the future!!

    I personnally print at costco... the price in my area is 0,10$ per 4x6... I did have to manage with the blow out percentage (print shop print at 105% of the size), so I had to reduce my template a bit. But with that kind of price, the is no way I will spend money on ink and paper! Of, and Matte papper! signatures and sharpie stay way better on those and no fingerprint!

    Thanks for the reply, I heard people using Costco before, is it reg. photo paper or are you able to change it? and they don't say nothing about the use of teams logos or players?

    some costco manager are more frisky than others... I used 4 of them, since I was moving around... Just take a chance, the worst is that it will say no.

    i was head of a Walgreens photo department for a while before i moved. I wouldn't have printed them due to logos and players. has to do with copyrights. legally we weren't allowed to print any professional type photos unless we had an ok from the photographer.
