Quote from Porridge Papers

Porridge Papers are also based in the US and they also ship to the UK, which they included in their price. They were so helpful but unfortunately it still worked out at a hell of a lot more money than I have to spend on business cards.

I really like the design of their letterhead, on an unrelated note.

Quote from Factory Direct

I received this quote through email from Factory Direct, which is based in the US and deals with printing on seed paper. They ship internationally and I wanted to get a price.

Upon getting the quote it's still far more than I'm able to pay for this and that doesn't even include shipping costs.

Reply from English Cottage Garden Nursery

English Cottage Garden Nursery were unable to print to actual business card size. The smallest they print is postcard size. Kind of weird, but fair enough.

Reply from Simon Woolf

I got a reply from Simon Woolf at Oakthrift, who I was recommended to contact by one of the people from Bloomin Promotions. Everybody seems to have a minimum order value of far more than I can afford.

My stationery

I finally have the design of my letterhead and compliment slip nailed down so check it out! I need to do some test prints on them.

Reply from Bloomin Productions

I got an email back from Martana Rybnicek at Bloomin Promotions and she recommended that I email Simon Woolf at Oakthrift in the UK because they work closely with him, so I sent off an email there and now I shall wait for a reply.

Reply from Ellie Poo Paper

I got a reply from Ellie Poo Paper explaining that they are paper makers and not printers. Sorry and all, Ellie Poo Paper, but that really is not clear on your website. Either way, that's one down!

These are some places that I've picked out to email for quotes about getting my business cards printed properly. I'd better get on top of that!
