    been asked to quote on a hundred + post cards for a regular customer of ours. now i've never done post cards before, and to be honest the first thing that comes to mind is vista print or the local sir speedy do them...as its more a print press type thing i guess.
    i just woundered if its possable to do a post card type thing on our roland vp540i and if so what type of material would i need to do it on? any ideas on this??

    You're better off doing that with offset printing techniques. Your Roland won't be at all cost effective.

    thanks guys for the replies......as i said my first thought was vista print or one of the local print places here like sir speedy etc, but then i gotta thinking if it was something the roland could do.....maybe not then....thanks gino for the info.
    i will go check out vista print for the postcards, thanks a2z for the headsup on the offers!

    i've used vistaprint for a bunch of stuff. Good and cheap.Great customer service when i had a problem one time. *** a tip- i found cheaper prices by ordering lower quantities in multiples (order, log off, then go to re-order), and they didnt seem to care, so check that out. i also found that paying for a rush wasn't necessary - it still comes in fast. Dont pick the slow-boat-from-china option , however.

    overnights good. runs many specials and coupon codes. But is 100+ really worth anyone's time? 1000 is cheap enough and still...
