Where can I custom print one credit card sized item?

I've made a nice credit card sized image that I'd like to print one (or five) of. I don't need a working magstripe, just high resolution printing on a piece of plastic and not in bulk.

Greeting card/postcard printing, not Moo or Paperless Post

I would like to print a small run of around 100 greeting cards and postcards. I can't use Moo or Paperless Post, which seem to be the default recommendations these days. Does anyone have any other recommendations for online printers based on professional/personal experience?

Small Run Full Color Book

I want to print 250 books with about 25 pages, but I want all of the inside pages in color (laserjet and copy paper quality is fine). I would love for the books to be spiral bound (so they open flat), but perfect bound would be fine. What's the cheapest way to do this?

Word 2016 on OS 10.11 Printing Issues

My office just did a technology upgrade. The gist is that we went from 10.8 to 10.11 and Office 2011 to 2016. Now, there are printing issues. We are using the same printer as before (Lexmark MS810de), but the printer will not print as close to the edge of the paper as it used to, so it is cutting off the footer on documents. The second is that all old files want to print at a fraction of the size of the paper (maybe 10% or so). More info in extended section. Any ideas would be appreciated! [more inside]

Making professional(ish) quality printed wall art from start to finish.

My boyfriend is having a housewarming party about a month from now, and I thought of a really fun idea for some wall art. I know some shops on Etsy take commissions, but for my own curiosity, I'd really like to know about the steps, tips/tricks, and overall process that I, as mostly tech-literate but otherwise digital-art-making-and-printing layperson, might take to create a solo or very limited run digital art print that I can frame and give as a gift. Bajillions more questions inside. [more inside]

How to print an a5 booklet on a4 paper

I want to print an a5 sized booklet on a4 paper. So basically 8 separate pages would fit on one double-sided a4 sheet, and then I would manually cut the a4 sheet in half down the middle. Is there a simple way to create a document in the order I want it read in and have the pages printed in the right order for folding the booklet, eg the first page and the last page would be on the same sheet just on different sides of it?

Where can I create a custom planner / calendar that's POD?

I had the idea that I'd like to create a custom calendar, titled "The Queer Agenda," with holidays and events of note relating to queer history. I would like to do so in a Print on Demand shop where people who like the concept can buy it in variations of school planner and wall calendar. Zazzle and Cafe Press will let me choose pictures and title text, but not day-to-day text, and they also only do wall calendars. This will not work. Many companies like Modern Postcard, Vistaprint, and Snapfish will let me customize days, but they do not offer print on demand designer storefronts. Any recommendations for services that might work better or ideas for how to proceed?

How to print off the web

I am often stymied by trying to print interesting articles off the web when the pages don't have a printer friendly version. The printed version often takes many more pages than I would have guessed. Moreover several of the pages may have only a few lines on them or just ads. Is there some way to tell approximately how many pages an article will print before printing if there is not a printer-friendly version? Maybe there is some utility I can download? Thanks

Is it possible to print black ink over gold on an invitation?

I need to print invitations and the design I have has a couple gold starbursts behind black text. The lines are thin, and I'm told this means thermography/foil stamping/letterpress won't really work.

Professional C-Print lab in Europe?

I'm an NYC-based photographer who has been asked about sending a print to Norway. My regular printer doesn't offer this option and USPS will cost perhaps $40 (I didn't check yet, just spitballing), so I was thinking that I might find a good lab there and send along my digital file, hopefully saving the client some cash in the process? I'm looking for a great lab that offers C-Prints at 16x20 and larger, and specifically 30x40. My ideal paper is Kodak Professional Endura Metallic, and my ideal language is English, though I could swing some common Romance languages in a pinch, maybe with Google Translate. [more inside]

Printing and binding 500 copies of a weirdly-bound book

I want to print and distribute 500 copies of a comic-art project I've been working on, but either want to do a crazy accordion fold (40 panels, each about 5 inches wide, so a little over 8 feet long if I print on both sides) or perfectly bound with some fold-out pages inside. Does anyone know how I could get that printed and bound in two and half weeks (by April 10)? I would prefer to find a printer/binder in the Boston area, but am open to working with businesses online. Thanks!

looking for a print/copy shop in Boston that you don't have to babysit

I'm looking for a print/copy shop, preferably downtown Boston, but will travel to nearby areas by T, that can do small batches (12-25) of full-color brochures that need to be folded a particular way. Apparently quite a few print shops don't do small runs, or don't do folding. Our current vendor, who I will politely not name, has left us unsatisfied on a few occasions (color not great, messed up the folding job, requiring us to refold them all). Already tried ProPriint, and their quote was fairly expensive (~1300$ for 25 ) Ideally we'd be looking at half that amount. I'm hoping someone can provide a "I've used VENDORX and they were AWESOME" kind of testimonial.

Mac woes - how do I print my documents like I want them?

I have an Epson inkjet printer and a new MacBook Pro. In Windows, I can print manual duplex by simply checking a box (it prints even pages, then I flip the paper manually, then it prints the odd pages). But the driver doesn't support this in Mac OS X. HOWEVER, the reason why the simple solution (do it all manually! First print even, flip, print odd) won't work is that I want TWO pages per side AND duplex printing, i.e. four pages being printed on each piece of paper. How can I achieve this? I was thinking I could do a PDF print of two pages per side and then do the manual duplex, but whenever I've tried the output file is huge and the quality very poor. Also, this is a significant amount of extra work so I'd prefer a more straightforward solution. [more inside]

Is there a way to convert my PDF book to a physical print version (even if it's just one or ten copies) in just a few days so that I can show it to people? Cost isn't really an object.
