Does anyone have any hints about getting my photo on my business cards
at some reasonable cost? I can produce the image to the specs
required by the printer so I'm not asking for any custom servies.

Any experiences?

Make or cop a template. Fill it in.

Add your photo.

Go to your printer.

For something this simple, I would use Microsoft Publisher. If it's a low
volume deal, you can print cards on your inkjet, using business card blanks
available at O Depot. That's what I did. (Cheap too.)

Dunno about the costs if you use a printer. Call some.

I charge 120 bucks for 1,000 cards on 14 pt coated card with overall
varnish. Printed offset.

Home made might be cheap but do you want your customers to think your
work is home made and cheap too?

Use a printer. Business cards are your first intoduction to some
customers make it a pleasent one.

I should have made it clear that I want to pay someone to do it. I've
never seen a DIY-printed business card that looked any good.
