My first request
Today, I, Yeti Studios, had my first job request, a business card design, for a client. Its design was simple with a few symbols and some information on it. Both sides were printed, one side in Spanish and the other side in English so, Latinos and Americans can be targeted. I don’t have the equipment to print them myself so, I had to find a broker to have them printed. The quality from this broker is not the best but it does the job.
My first printing with them took me about 3 weeks to get because lack of directions and lack of reading on my end. It was not the best experience but as I said above, it does the job.
“I wish I could find a different one.”
I thought about printing with VistaPrint. However, I have not spent enough time on their website to make a concrete decision. I only have spent some time looking online for another broker, sadly, I don’t know which keywords and terms I should type on the browser. My knowledge about these services is very limited.
Printing the work myself
I spent some time looking for paper used to print business cards and printers just to not being lucky enough to find the right information. However, I learned a little bit about the thickness of the paper for each business card. Thicknesses such as 14pt which is vastly used. I also learned a little bit about the matte end and the high gloss UV end.
If you have this information and are in the position of helping me figure this out. I would be forever grateful to you.
