Non squeamish printer needed

4 replies [Last post]

I have a, rather, adult card game I need printing.

The cards do not have to be pre cut, so long as someone can print them on thin cardstock the punter can cut them up themselves.

The problem seems to be the adult material, so much so that printers aren't even having the politeness to mail me back.

I need more of a POD scale print run, which shouldn't be a problem if I can find anyone to do it I would have thought...

Anyone reccomend any printers that aren't so judgemental?

Dear Grim

Unless you are sending the printers adult materials without first contacting them to see if they are willing to print it for you I would think that any professional printers would at least write a polite reply to decline your project. Look at the web resources list in professional services, it contains several card printing companies.

I am contacting them beforehand and they're still not replying, which I'm finding rather rude.

Still, it seems that printing it myself on cardstock is almost as cheap, if not quite the standard I'm looking for :/

Talk quantities

If you're having troubles getting printers to respond, open the discussion with the quantities you're looking for. Sadly, a lot of printers don't respond to responses for small print runs. It may not be the subject matter that's turning them off, but rather the numbers involved.

Another suggestion is to take a look online and find other companies in your niche, then give them a call and ask who their printer is. I don't know anything about the adult game industry, but I've found the rest of the industry to be very helpful. Also, Discover Games has some printers listed for first timers. A lot of small companies (like mine - see www.liveoakgames.com/flo.htm) post the resources they used, just to spread the good karma around.

I suspect you're right, but to me it seems pretty stupid on the part of the printers. At least some of the small games will have larger later print runs and lead to additional game. I'd certainly consider using a printer that politely said my order was too small for a future larger order. If they didn't even take the time to respond, I'd never consider using them.
