Does anybody know if they print playing mats? It can be cloth I don't mind. I'm looking to get something made as a play area for Star Wars X-Wing.

I was pretty disappointed with the quality of the cards and would not order from Printer Studio again.

Wow, really? In almost every comparison thread Printer Studio has been pretty much universally preferred over ArtsCow.

How long ago was your order and which cardstock and finish did you choose?

What exactly did you find disappointing?

I want to know the answer to this as well, for exactly the same reason.

Re: [Printer's Studio] Free worldwide shipping
A few weeks ago. Er....poker size, linen finish? I quite honestly found their options list confusing as hell so its a challenge to clearly state what i ordered.

I had the Game of Thrones HBO version decks printed, with some Coin Age maps.

Card print quality is acceptable, but not great. The problem is none of the cards sit flat. They warp and warp and warp some more.

Did you complain? I've heard their customer service is pretty solid. They'll probably send replacements free of charge.

If you need to know the answer so badly, you might want to check out their website...

Now that I made my point, I'll help out by saying that, no, I don't think they do. I may have missed that product.

Sorry to hear this. I've had three mini card decks printed to date and they are all incredibly nice. Contact them, I'm sure they will take care of you!

I did check out the site and didn't see anything, so I posted on here in case I missed it and because sometimes websites sell things that are buried deep within the site. Basically a second opinion to confirm mine.



Hmmm Artscow fired back. I think I'll check to see what they have.

Looks like they sell mats, but not in the size we're looking for.

Did you use Randy_Watson's link from the Printerstudio Sharing Project geeklist? If so, they were poker size, smooth finish. I had essentially those same cards printed (I created the link with the Stannis deck) and mine turned out great. Slight curve to the cards, but you frequently see a slight curve with cards from publishers as well. And mine haven't continued to warp at all. Ironically, I did have to have some cards from the actual game replaced because the finish was messed up.

Personally, out of ten decks ranging from 54 to 216 cards, I've never had a problem with anything I've had printed. But I know people who have, and they've said that customer service is more than willing to reprint decks if you're not hapy with them for any reason. Give them a call.

Here are my "sample size of 1, maybe 2" results, with pictures!

Of my last order of 300+ cards, I have had one card that warped to the point of being unacceptable.



This one card is warped a lot more than the card right next to it in the bundle.



I would say that one is very much ok.

Both those cards are smooth finish.

By comparison, here is a linen finish card I had made half a year ago.




And finally, a comparison to a mass produced, professional, official card. They must do something different.

For those that have gotten stuck with badly warped cards, I've had decent success with ironing with a bit of steam under a towel and then letting the card cool under a heavy book.

I've only recently begun having problems with the print image. My cards have a lot of white spots where ink is missing. These were the linen finish bridge cards.

I have problems with white spots on my linen deck too. Did you contact them?

No I did not contact them. I ended up going over them with a fine sharpie. Not the most elegant solution but these happened to be a test run of an abstract design I'm working on.
