One Way to Print Your Own Project Life Cards

Thank you so much for your congratulatory comments on my big news!  We are so happy!

I like to use my own designs for scrapbooking.  I have been using the Project Life system for a couple of years now and I typically cut up my own cards from leftover scrapbook paper or painted papers.  I have also made a few digital cards that I print out every so often to replenish my stock of cards.  I have had ongoing struggles with my printer to get them to print out nicely.  We bought a brand new printer and I still can't figure out why it's printing wonky. 

So I looked around online for a place to order cards and I found a printing company called 4over4.  (This is not a sponsored post, I was just happy with the printing quality, so I thought I'd share.)

I ordered the mini postcards in a custom size: 3.94" x 2.88.  If you order 4"x 3" they won't fit into the sleeves of the Project Life scrapbook binders.  

I love the quality of the cards that were printed and I loved that they sent emails throughout the process so you knew exactly when your cards were being mailed. 



For your first order, you can get 20% off with the coupon code Template20.  I was hesitant to order more than one image because in case the cards did not turn out nicely, I didn't want to be out a bunch of money.  I was pleased to find out that they sent another coupon to use on my next order!  yay! 

The downside I think is the minimum number of cards required.  The minimum qty is 50.  So, unless you are going to be doing a lot of scrapbooking, it might be too much.  I'm planning on using these for other purposes (like little note cards or to use in backgrounds on art journal pages.)  I am also going to make some "art journaling/scrapbooking kits" for my Etsy shop when I order more designs to ease the cost of the cards.  It would also be a blast to swap these with other people, so if anyone decides to make some of their own cards, let me know!

I tried to use Overnightprints.com a few years ago for prints and postcards, but I just couldn't get the colors to work right.  When I sent them an email about the color differences, they didn't have any answers for me.  I'm going to try this company to make greeting cards and other prints.

Thanks, Marcie. I think I'll try them next time I need cards.
