Where to get small quantity of name cards made?

Postby slmkhoo » Sat May 17, 2014 8:59 am

I am considering getting some name cards made. Where can I get a small quantity (maybe just 100 for a first time) made quickly and cheaply? I know I could probably DIY, but I'm not very clued-in to such things. Thanks!

*Sorry if this is not in the right place, but I wasn't sure where to post this!

Hi Sembgal,

May I check if you have used them before and found the quality good? I am also looking to print some stuff for my biz. Thank you!

Hi, I have not used them yet. But the rates offered seem to be the lowest in market and they guarantee satisfaction.

There's a place at Peace Centre at Sophia Road that has very good rates for all sorts of printing, biz cards printing, photocopying, esp A3 poster printing. Can't remember the shop name though :nailbite: - it's on the ground floor - they have one unit facing Sophia Road, and another one just inside the entrance of the complex.

There are plenty of such services around the Bugis/Bencoolen area - Sim Lim Square, Peace Centre, and of course, Bras Basah Complex. Costs ranges from $12 per box to $25, depending on the quality of the paper used for the cards. You can supply the design in PDF format (just lay out using Powerpoint or something, eg. https://store.office.live.com/templates/Business).

Thanks sembgal, Jen and Chief!
The previous printing company I used was a little out of the way for me esp with kids in tow, some of these options will be more convenient. Thanks again!

Thanks! I'm in quite a hurry as I clean forgot I would need some for an event this Wednesday! I have never had to make my own name cards before, and I haven't had any made since I left my last job in Singapore in 1995! I guess I will have to pay extra for an express service as I won't have time to get down to the shops till tomorrow.

Bt Timah Plaza top lvl has a printing/photocopy shop that can do small qty of name cards. Elder boy used Microsoft Publisher namecard template to design a name card and saved as a image file and brought to the shop, on the spot printed out on a A4 thick paper and he cut them himself. Cant remember how much it cost. Not sure this shop is open on Sunday.
