Question about card printing quantities.
« on: February 26, 2017, 04:44:41 pm »
Hiya, new here! I have a question about the quantity of cards i can print at once. See, i have a card i wanna print, but I only want two copies. Not 18 which seems to be the lowest. So, is it possible to make just two copies of the card, just buy them instead of a pack of 18 or more cards?

With any professional card printing service, 18 is usually the lowest amount you can print. Cards are printed in sheets, so 2 isn't really possible with that method. You could always find some other cards you want to have printed and have them printed along with the two you wanted!

Hmm... i guess so. Though I don't really have too many other cards i want to get printed. See what i want printed is this card because of what it symbolizes with my boyfriend and I.

There are a few others down in the Showcase subforum that have bleed images, as well, if you just need to fill out a page.

Not that I think you'd want to print them, but I slapped together (with some generous help from Ithry and Western) some unused art with early design concepts for the Shipwrecker CMC trio.
