Looking for a good online printer!

I have been using White House Custom Color to print my portfolio images and have been very satisfied with their digital C-prints. But I've recently ordered some press printed promo cards and do not like the results.

Does any one use an online printer that they are happy with and have had folded cards and/or business cards made? Heavy gloss stock preferably.

Thanks for the suggestions... David

Hi David,

Where are you based? I'm in the UK and use RCS for leaflets and business cards. Very reasonable costs, and really nice quality print. The delivery charges can be a bit expensive, but if you set up a trade account, you'll get 30% off the list price of everything.

What was wrong with the cards from WH? I've always gotten good results from them. Did you write them to tell them of your concern?

The gradients in their press printed products our not smooth. You can see the dots and breaks up the transitions, unlike their digital C-prints which I love. I'll probably stay with them for my portfolio prints for just need press printing.

Any suggestions?
