Printing D2e Card Questions

Recommended Posts

This has been cross-posted to BGG's site:

I have usually used Printer Studio for much of my card print jobs, as they do a wonderful job, and the results are excellent.

For Descent Second Edition small cards, however, Printer Studio's cards are slightly the wrong size.

I know that I saw a regular on BGG and FFG post (perhaps Sadgit?) of a place they use that has the exact same size cards for the small cards.

Can someone enlighten me, and provide me the name of such a place?

Also, a very good friend's 3 year old daughter decided that the best place to do her coloring and use of scissors was on my buddy's entire set of Descent First Edition hero cards.  Ugggh.  Anyway, I am re-creating all of the cards for him in inDesign.

Since they are the same size as the Descent Second Edition cards, I am wondering if someone knows a good place to get that format of a card printed, on appropriate stock.  Once again, Printer Studio doesn't have this size of a card.

Thanks in advance for any information provided !

Sadgit mentioned that MPC.com does custom cards in the correct size. (41x63 mm)  It was in response to some search cards I made last year, but it looks like the template is still up on MPC.

Let me know how it works out. I have another Descent project coming down the pipe, and I would love to know if the MPC card size works.

I wish I could find a place that would print the 5" x 4" hero cards.  I have talked with 9 places ... none of them can do it.

Edit: I actually did end up using a FedEx place near me to print prototype cards on their heaviest, gloss paper stock.  It actually isn't too bad.  Still a bit light in weight, but workable.
