    Question Business cards - where's good value?

    I've designed some business cards on Photoshop for a Thai friend and I'm going to get 500 made and send them to her in Samui - In the past I have gone to one of the many shops in MBK that do it, and I will do so again unless anybody can recommend a good place in Bangkok that is better value?

    I don't have a specific shop that I can recommend but there must be a place in Fortune thats cheaper than MBK.

    I want to find a cheap place in there as I get most of my printing done at MBK except for vinyl banners which I get done at Fortune. In MBK they want 3-4000bt for a 3m banner where as Fortune only charge 700bt.

    I know this is banners but there's got to be good regular print shop in there somewhere.

    Cheers for the only sensible reply, I had some Stiffy The Ponk A4 placemats laminated at Fortune and they were about 200 baht each!

    I dunno, perhaps MBK might be the.. Hmm..

    Stick to what you know, know what I mean?

    About the same.

    Printing is expensive in Thailand, especially for small print runs. There are a couple of printers I use, but if you think you can get 500 decent namecards for a baht or two each, then stick to MBK.

    I think last time i went to MBK to get cards printed the prices were, for double sided, full color on decent card, 3.5bt each on 1000, 3bt on 2000 and I got 6000 for 2bt each. There were 3 of us needed cards so we took 2000 each and they didn't charge for name, number and email changes.

    One thing I'd recommend is that the person getting the cards has a contract mobile phone coz you look like a tit handing cards on with the wrong number on if you loose your pay as you go phone.

    Why? I've had AIS PAYG for 8 years with the same number and I have lost my phone 3 times. You can keep your number if you want to.

    In case you decide to change from pay as you go, to contract. You have to change your number if you do that.

    Save on printing costs by drawing them yourself, it will also give the cards that individual artsy look.
    If you collect lots of other peoples cards you can write on the back thus proving you are serious about recycling

    500 cards multi colored on decent paper..almost anywhere in the USA will cost about $9.95 = 338 bht...mailing first class mail 119bht...why piss around with second class work when you can get the best for less, then again you could go with the KW option

    didnt say it was my option, I figured it was a scumpy option.

    actually, he could cut them out using those wavy scissors and stick some coloured stars on them too for that individual look!

    Photoshop is a very poor program for designing business cards. I hope they turn out alright.
