Have a test deck printed before you have a larger number made.

I did this and was so glad I did because I saw several last minute tweaks that needed to be made.
And it's the only way you'll be able to see the print and cardstock quality before committing to a large order.

Having a single deck printed is a little pricey but well worth it if you catch mistakes and make adjustments to brightness etc. before having 100 or more done.

Also, you can verify the cards are packed in the order you want them, for example the title card first, and if you are using a window tuck box, appearing through the window. Most printers (I think) pack the cards in the order you submitted them, so either the first or last card you submit is on the bottom of the deck, thus appearing through the window.

You can ask the printer in advance but it's good to verify it with the test deck.

Thank You, Everyone, and Good Luck!

This was one of my favorite threads, but when I left AT I had no way of knowing what ever continued with it.

Thank you to everyone that ever contributed to this thread!
