    Printing Note Cards, Posters, Etc

    Hi All,

    Apologies if this question has come up in another thread, but my searches haven't turned up any hits, so I thought I'd ask!

    I'm looking to print some notecards / greeting cards to sell at artshows and gallery viewings as they are happening, and was wondering if anyone here has experience with a specific printer who knows the ropes in dealing with us "old school" types.

    I love the printing results in Lenswork magazine, would love to match that quality with any card production run (or posters in the future).

    I'd love to hear anyones experience or recommendations.

    BTW, love this forum and this is my first post, but not the last! More to come...

    Thanks!
    Terry

    Lenswork has their magazine printed in Vancouver BC Canada. It is very expensive. If you want that look, call Brooks Jensen and ask the name of the printer he uses. Most smaller boutique printers can also handle the look you want.

    Lenswork is printed by Hemlock in BC See their site at http://www.hemlock.com. Also Stinehour Press in VT does excellent duotone and tritone work. http://www.stinehourpress.com/

    Don't do anything less than a duotone. Good Luck,

    Bill

    Thanks for the quick feedback everyone. I'll give Stienhour Press a call tomorrow, and I agree I think duotone is a bare minimum to start with!

    I'll keep you posted on the results of this project!
