Hey guys,

This is an odd question, but does anyone have a plastic card printer? These print on 30 mil PVC cards.

I need one card printed for a trick I'm working on, and all online websites have a minimum of a few hundred. I couldn't find any local businesses that do this, either.

If you're able to help me for a reasonable price please PM me. I have the card designed in a PSD file with bleed and 300 dpi. I need to print full color on both sides of the card, but extras like a magnetic strip AREN'T needed.

Thanks for your help,

Jeff

Check with your school's media center. I know that when I was in HS replacement IDs were printed for five bucks. They had one of those printers in the media center. Maybe you can see if they will print you one?

My school has an ID printer, and they also charge $5, but they won't print a card for me.

Hmmm... do you have a family member who works at an office? Maybe they can get one printed?

Have you tried Kinkos? Apparently they let you just go in and go wild there.

I don't think Kinkos prints on PVC cards.

Does it have to be PVC? Maybe you can try printing it on business card stock and then having that laminated. Avery sells stock very cheap and you can get stuff laminated at Staples.

Yeah, Kinkos can't print on them.
