A: Sure, we can add a photo for FREE...just email the picture to us after you place your order. If you want the photo printed in black & white there is no extra charge to add it. If you want it in color it is $15 extra.
Q: Are your cards the kind that come in sheets that are run through a copier and then separated by tearing apart the perforations?
A: NO! Our cards are completely designed from scratch by professional graphic artists. We take the image that you select and the text that you want and custom design every order. Our cards are run on state of the art printing presses NOT on copiers...the quality of our cards is superb and there is no ugly perforations since ours are professionally printed and custom cut.
Q: What is the difference between matte and glossy finish? Is one more expensive?
A: Matte has a light dull finish, and the glossy have shinier coating. Both are the same price. You can also choose a linen finish which is lighter in weight and has a textured finish...it is a little more expensive but gives a very elegant feel and looks great with antique images. Linen paper can not be run on rush orders though.
Q: Why are your prices so much lower than everyone else's?
A: Printing is our specialty and this is our core business...we have incredible volume (averaging half a million cards a month) and pass the savings on to our clients. Custom Holy Cards are our passion and with over 32 years of printing experience we know how to maximize efficiencies through technology, automation and innovation.
Q: How do you ship the cards?
A: UPS is our primary carrier for all custom orders. We normally ship UPS SurePost or Ground depending on your address, but we can also send your cards overnight if needed for a scheduled event.
Q: Are your cards thick and rigid, or thin and flimsy like some I have seen from other companies?
A: Ours are super thick...we run on 14/16pt stock which is the thickest and most rigid in the industry. They are very substantial and something you'll be proud of. Our linen cards are run on 100# cover stock which is very nice as well.
Q: Are your cards run with toner like on a copier, or ink like on a printing press?
A: We use real ink on state of the art printing equipment to give you photo quality results.
Q: Can you make a holy card with an image that I have, or do I have to pick one of your images?
A: Yes, we can use your image...You can even order cards with your own artwork on this website by clicking on the "Cards with your artwork" button which is the last category in the product menu to the left. You'll receive instructions on how to submit your artwork once your order is placed.
Q: I only need a few cards, what is your minimum quantity?
A: We can print as few as 25 custom holy cards for you.
Q: Are your cards laminated?
A: Our cards are printed on super thick 14/16pt card stock and come with a high gloss UV coating that acts as a synthetic laminate. They are very thick and rigid. Most people don't feel the need to laminate our cards in hard plastic. We currently do not offer hard plastic lamination, but if you need that done, usually any local quick printer can laminate them for you.
Q: Can I get cards made in a size other than your two standard sizes?
A: We can definitely do custom sizes. Just click on this CUSTOM SIZES link and you can fill out a quick online form to get an estimate sent to you right away.
