I am wanting to have some post cards made at Postcardwarehouse.com I need to supply them with a photo. Has anyone here found a source of photo's? It needs to be 300dpi , has anyone done this? Some help would be appreciated. I have a lawn and garden show to go to Feb. 10, 11, 12 and need to get these printed to hand out.
Thanks for any help.

I have used them for the print of postcards and doorhangers in the past. If you want some photos with nice looking lawns and houses, you can go to www.istockphotos.com ....or just istock.com....don't remember for sure. by far they are the cheapest that I have seen. Use to get 3 for $10...or there abouts and they are the proper size. For future reference, I would have a professional design your media and they just upload that design to the printer. I would not let the printer design the media for you. Who did you talk to at postcardwarehouse.....Bob? He's a great guy to work with.

Walker,
No didn't talk to Bob, just a lady who answered the phone. And she tried to tell me that I couldn't buy direct from them, that I needed to go through their sister site printmania.com, of course they are 3 times higher. She was telling me that they only deal with brokers. When I told her that I was referred to her from this site, she changed her tune and said if I can send the file ready to print, then I could buy from them.

So, first, thanks for the links to photo's. Can you tell me, do I use postcardwarehouse's site to put the card together. Put photo, then add the text their. Or do I use the photo on my computer and use like photoshop and add the text, then upload it? I appreciate the help.

Thanks, again.

I used a professional designer. If you are in a hurry, you might try somebody locally. You can use www.designoutpost.com, but that might take 2-3 weeks before you come up with something. I don't think you can use photoshop, but I could be wrong. Check out www.48hourprint.com I think they can design something for you or accept photoshop formatted files. I have never used them for design, but they are extremely fast on their print jobs. After uploading some files to them, the printed material was on my doorstep 10 days later.

I also used istock.com and got photo's in the past.They have a large selection to chose from,and you can't beat the price.
