help needed!
« on: 31/01/2012 11:12:21 »
Hi everyone!

Just need to ask something. Im planning on getting some business cards made. My friend told me about a online company called <spam made easy> and said they were very good. I would just like to know have any of you ordered anything from there and would like to know how it was?

If you only need a few cards, you can also buy punch-out business card paper.

https://www.google.com/search?q=business+card+paper&tbm=shop&hl=en&oq=business+card+paper&aq=f&aqi=g3g-m4&aql=&gs_sm=e&gs_upl=2112l4872l0l5129l19l9l0l1l1l1l290l1492l0.5.3l8l0

I see some also are laminated. 
I prefer color laser printers if possible, so they don't run, although ink jet printers may have better image quality.  Don't use paper for ink jet only printers in a laser printer.

Thanks for the reply guys!

I looked up more into detail of <spam made easy> and found some really good deals on them. I can now get 50% off my business cards :D I think im going to order a lot from them now! :)

I actually do have the last few cards from my previous employment that are English and Arabic.  I made the mistake about ten years ago of getting some free business cards - the endless spam/junk snail-mail was incredible; two or three email a day and a letter through the post most weeks.

I must admit, I have fallen foul of this scourge myself, but they were free! YES FREE!!!

I still can't manage to work out how I ended up paying for them

If you don't read Arabic yourself,  I hope you got someone who does to confirm it didn't include any inappropriate comments about your ancestry.

I was promised it didn't! and I compared it very closely to those of colleagues and the only difference was my name - which I was able to check myself.  It was more for the huge amount of contact details we had in those days: telex, reuters, comtext, telephone, mobile, homephone, fax, cable address - and I was the first in the company to have a new email address

How strong can we make magnets or electromagnets be and could we use magnets for transportation or even as an energy source?
