Hey, I don't know where to post this so I'm going to drop it here, I'm looking for a place to print cards for a board game, where's the cheapest place I could get it printed?

I could do it myself, but things like round corner and crappy paper quality is a big problem for me.

Arts Cow will print a deck of 54 poker size playing cards with custom backs and different art on the face of each card for about $15 USD.

Drive Thru Cards.

Same 320g French paper core/stock as most CCGs and only $0.08/card (less if you're ordering 5,000+ at a time). No limit to deck size. Save out a PDF with single 2.5x3.5" (poker-sized) cards for example with 1/8" bleed, alternating back/front which can be different designs every card, and done nicely. Note: 240% ink coverage on their press.

$4.32 for a 54-card deck. 1/3 what Artscow charges.

You do have to have signed up for a free publisher-level account though. You don't have to make them "public" for sale and just order your own decks.

Personally, I use The GameCrafter for prototype printing. I am always satisfied with the quality I get from them. It's a thinner stock than what you'd get in a larger print from an offset printer, but it's great for prototypes.

For Drivethrucards

I'm printing spell cards for D&D 5E do I have to publish it? It'll invoke the wrath of WotC...

But all the backs have to be the same. Printerstudio will let you have different backs.

I think the pricing is roughly the same, at least when I last checked. I found Printerstudio a bit more complicated to use but it gave me more control. It's the site I prefer. Although whichever way you go, I'd suggest getting your files ready ahead of time and waiting until the next "hot deal" pops up with free shipping or somesuch.
