    Designed a new logo and cards for a client, and he wants a nice card. He builds high end custom cabinets and wants his image to reflect that.

    I use Gotprint for most stuff but does anybody have any suggestions on how to make this card look richer than the cheap card stock that most are printed on?

    I'm not a business card expert so any ideas would be helpful... Thanks!

    Silk sounds nice but can you print 4 color on them?

    I use www.bcecards.com they have some nice weight papers, no thin cheap stuff and can do raised print, foil stamping and all that good stuff.

    love the card design, what is the font used for the tagline? I love it

    4 over is great. Not a -ton- of options, but enough to get by with.

    Silkcards is great for picking up the weird die cuts and layers and yadda yadda.
