The card stock is quick thick and strong, the glossy side is very glossy, the cutting seems uniform and consistent and the print is clean and crisp on the front. I even got a phone call from someone in their customer service department after I e-mailed them to inquire if I should upgrade my shipping to receive them by a certain date.
My only niggle is the printing on the back. I chose to go with their ‘Color Front, Black Back’ option after calling to confirm that the black back was actually grayscale and wouldn’t be black or a halftoned gray. Unfortunately, the lettering on the back is indeed in black with a very faint half-tone pattern. I’m probably going to call and ask about this, but for less than $50 for 1000 cards I’m not going to be too particular. I would have happily dropped the extra $10 to get the right color on the back, but I’m not sure I would have wanted the back of the card to be glossy.
I used their template, created my artwork and uploaded it to their system. I was able to proof them online immediately and got (almost) exactly what I expected. Pretty cool. 🙂
