I'm looking into www.psprint.com as some friends of mine got decent ones made there.

Clearly you folks ignored my post about working with an actual graphic designer. Note I didn't say work with a print shop. I said work with a designer. We have stock libraries of thousands of fonts. And we know how to use them. (I have a gun and I'm not afraid to use it?) Helvetica and futura are crap - they look like everyone else's fonts - because they are everybody else's fonts. Chances are if you've heard of it...it's boring.

I read it. I just don't want to pay someone more than I have to for a calling card that someone will think I am a serial killer for giving them.

A designer is good, but luckily I have design-y friends. You can still work with a designer and then get it printed elsewhere.

So long as your friends are actual graphic designers then it should be fine. The only concern would be if they were in adjacent fields like photography or multi-media. In those cases you would have slim to no chance of them understanding typography. Although if a calling card isn't really going to be that important to you then it would not be the biggest of concerns. Best of luck.

Yes, but how much 6-point type do you really need?



Branding and identity are some of the weirdest things to pay for - especially a new company. Always loved and hated it. Loved it as an expression of the company's soul and hated it as though it might be like a photograph that somehow fixes and steals that soul.

My old business card used to say "Life Conoisseur," now it says "Panda Extraordinaire"
