Print Business Card With Photo Printer??
Q: I am trying to find a printer that *might* print single business cards. Usually, printing a single, small business card in a regular inkjets that handles normal-sized envelopes to letter and legal paper sizes doesn't work. I'm also aware of, but not considering, the Avery-type letter-size paper that contina several perforated business cards on one sheet. I was wondering if anyone had ever tried to print a single business card in a photo printer. Or, after reading this post, might try it and let me know how it works out. I don't have a photo printer and because I just thought of the possibility of using such a printer tonight for the first time, I haven't gone out to buy one to try it myself. I'm hoping someone might have some thoughts or suggestions on 1) whether a single business card might be able to be printed in a photo printer or 2) another type of printer or option I could look into. Another reason that I'm looking into this is because I would like to be able to print on the small envelopes you use when you send flowers and you can put a mini-card inside one of those little, tiny envelopes. Again, being so small, these envelopes (~2.5" x ~3.25") rarely feed through a normal inkjet very well. Thanks for reading through this post and I appreciate any comments or suggestions anyone might offer to help me figure this one out!
A: Most "business card stock" sold in office supply stores is crap. It's not as thick as the stock professional print shops use, and the perforated edges make the cards look terrible. Nothing screams "loser" louder than handing someone a home printed business card. On top of that, many home inkjet printers are specifically designed to NOT handle real card stock. Planned limitation. If you're seriously considering spending several hundred dollars to buy a printer for business cards, instead of paying a print shop $50 for a set of real ones, you might want to rethink your logic.
Having just spent 100 dollars for a small run of picture per card Calling cards this sounds like a good idea. Printer under $200. Price per print 24cents. 1 side professional printed cards 10 cents. With 200 individual calling cards it has paid for itself
