    I am wanting to do the bulk mail with the oversized postcards and was wondering if any of you use places off the internet to do the printing. I meet with my local marketing firm and they wanted $2600 for 5700 postcards, that did not include a mailing list and or postage. I need some advise ASAP!

    Try 4over4.com 5000 jumbo full color cards for $560

    Interent pl;aces can give so much better prices because they take huge orders an gang run them all together -- brings down the cost substntially.

    Here is a card they are printing for me right now. Its on its waya nd should be here tomorrow.

    I couldn't create anything remotely as nice as what I posted. I am not sure what program the designer used, but the same guy designed Hammon's postcard and mine. I would guess he used something like Adobe or Corel.......or a similar high dollar program.
