What products do you offer?

We offer team sets, individual custom cards (trading card, post card, jumbo post card and hero card), card strips, and card blocks. For our size specifications, see our products page
 
What paper stock do you print on?
All of our products are printed on top quality, rigid 14-point coated 2 sided (C2S) card stock and are finished with a glossy liquid laminate UV coating.  Our coating is “autograph friendly” and dries without bubbling or smearing.
 
For individual card orders does the card have to be the exact same card for the entire quantity, or can I use different images and text?
A set of cards is intended to be that quantity (500, 1000, 2000 etc.) of the same exact card. Each separate card takes a place on our press sheet.
 
How much text and statistical information can I fit on my cards?
Please limit the text on the notes section to 50 words and the statistics to 4 career lines and 2 totals lines.  More text and stats can be fit onto the card, but the font will start to get too small and effect the overall look of the card.  Remember, these are just guidelines, not strict requirements, as long as you take into consideration that a trading card is only 2.5" by 3.5", and that only so much can fit comfortably, there should be no problems.  
 
Can I design my own trading card and submit the files?

What kind of inks do you use?
Most of our products are printed with petroleum/soy-based 4-color inks on the front side (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black ink) over 1-color on the backside (Black ink only).  Team sets are available in 4-color over 4-color ink.  Please contact us for the availability of 4-color over 4-color printing of our other products.

Can I choose the colors of my card?
Absolutely.  Although if you do not, our design team will select the colors based off your logo or organizations' primary colors.
 
Can I send a digital image of my photo on a diskette or  via email?
Yes. Photos should be saved at 300dpi, larger than 3” x 5” and need to be saved in a high resolution jpeg format if sent via email. If sent on a disk, TIFF, Photoshop or illustrator file formats are preferred.  Our design team is Macintosh based - so please save the file accordingly if your program asks you to differentiate. If taking a photo on a digital camera, take the picture on the finest setting for the best results.  You may also send large files via our drop box (FTP Replacement)

Can you "crop" photographs?
Yes, our professional design team will crop your photograph so it will best fit in your trading card.  If you would like, you can mark off the section you want cropped by using removable tape or post-it notes and we will include only the section you request on your cards.
 
How should I identify the photograph's?
Please DO NOT write directly on the back of a photograph.  Rather, use a label or post-it note.  When saving players pictures to a CD or other type of disk, please save the picture as the players last name an underscore symbol then first name (Brown_John.jpg)
