Guys i understand some of you like Artscow, but what is your experience with other printers - say printerstudio or makeplayingcards?
The Printerstudio uses 300 or 310gsm paper, where Artscow provides just 280gsm. Makeplayingcards go even higher, but i'd say 300gsm would be my personal choice. Also they seem to be a bit cheaper (don't know about the shipping though).

I have figured out the composition they need for good printing. I will have to redo all the cards. A hard lesson, at least i will remember that.

Printerstudio is very high quality - I have had very good results from them. I think people like Artscow because they run very low priced sales. I have also good things about http://www.drivethrucards.com/

I've used printerstudio before and the cards were linen finish and gorgeous (Mr. Cabbagehead). I use artscow whenever the cards are already formatted for them. They do run good sales at times. I do enjoy quality cards though, so if you think one of the others is better, then I'm good with that.

Yes, i guess the 30% off at Artscow just gets the price very close to what you get at Printerstudio + thicker paper as a bonus.

I bought cards from Printerstudio for both Shadows of Brimstone and Myth. They are great quality.
