Trading Card Vendors

->> Good afternoon,

I did a quick search on this and came up with some older threads (2004 or so), and I will admit not looking at all of the results.

So, be that as it may, my trading card vendor has changed their practice of direct mail to my customers and they increased their prices by a dollar per set. So, they gain the extra dollar, the postage they used to pay, and I get to mail these things out to my eight-year old clients. I am not a happy camper.

I guess I am in the market for a trading card vendor for the two leagues that I do every season. Since this is a very small part of my business, I am not really interested in the time and effort to use templates in my own PC. My spelling errors alone would reduce my margin to crap. Plus this time of year I am shooting two to three games a day from now until the middle of May. I simply do not have to time to input each card by itself.

So, does anyone know of a trading card vendor that puts out a good product (like a real trading card, not like photo paper) for a reasonable price, that can take my forms and images and make it happen.

Mailing directly to the client would be a great thing, but not essential.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

->> Wait, looks like they might be your current vendor since I see this:

"All orders, beginning today (3/13/09), will receive 18 cards per set instead of 12. There will not be a discount price for a second set at this time."

and

"All trading card orders get shipped back to the photographer via USPS Priority and will be added at time of billing."
