I remember a topic from a few years back, where there was someone on here that designed gas & Oil business cards and did it as a business.
I finally have formed enough opinions, that I know what I'm looking for (kinda) and I want to get some business cards printed up.
I hesitate to go to the local commercial printers as I don't believe they will have the image or insight that collectors do!
Anyone have any suggestions!

Kevin, buy yourself a program called "Print Master" and make your own,,, it's easy and cheap,, buy your sheets in Office depot or Staples,,I've been doing it for years,,, don't make too many at once in case you want to make changes or updates.. there is usually 10 cards to a sheet
Here is what mine looks like,,

vistaprint.com frequentky runs sales better then printing yourself, plus you upload your own image to customize it.

T-way, unclear from your post. Do you print business cards and is that what you charge or are you referring to Vistaprint?

...Kevin - the guy you want is an Oldgasser who goes by Circa Designs, it was his post you're thinking of...I've known him for over 20 years, he's about as stand-up a guy as you'll meet...

I was notified about this thread and thought I better chime in. Even if doing custom designs the price for 500 or 1000 cards still usually comes in under $100. Let me know if I can help. Here's the old thread that has a couple of card designs I did for fellow Oldgassers: http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=55171&page=3

I just did a custom designed card for one of my Canadian friends. Having 1,000 business cards digitally printed (FYI - there's no limit on the numbers of colors you can use on a digital printer) cost $79.00 + MI Sales Tax.
(That price has been the same for over two years now.)

Do the math - that means I charge less than $20.00 for the design work.

I went with Vistaprint and I was really happy with the results (I think I paid a little less than $30.00 for a box of 250 gloss business cards).

Sometimes they have email offers were you get 250 basic cards for FREE and you just pay postage. But yes custom cards will cost a bit more.
