How to Print Your Own Design Card Game?
Creating your own custom card game can be a fun and rewarding experience, but getting your design printed can be intimidating. With so many printing options, where do you start? Here's a guide to help you navigate the printing process and bring your game to life.
Step 1: Choose your printing method
There are two main options when it comes to printing your card game: print-on-demand and offset printing. Print-on-demand is a cost-effective option for small runs, but the quality may not be as high as offset printing. Offset printing requires a larger print run, but the quality is much better. Consider your budget and the number of copies you plan to print when deciding which method to choose.
Step 2: Choose your paper stock
The type of paper stock you use can make a big difference in the quality and durability of your cards. Choose a paper that is thick enough to withstand shuffling and handling, but not so thick that it's difficult to shuffle. Consider a coated paper for a professional feel and better protection against wear and tear.
|35gsm - 55gsm||Very thin, typically what newspapers are made from.|
|70gsm - 90gsm||Typical weight of office printer paper.|
|100gsm - 140gsm|
A heavier paper that can withstand a little more wear and tear, all of our papers currently fall into this range.
|150gsm - 200gsm||In this range is heavier papers and lightweight cardstock. Flyers and posters are usually made within this GSM.|
|200gsm - 230gsm||A thinner card perfect, for layering, die cutting and crafts.|
|240gsm - 290gsm|
The perfect weight for handmade cards. They can also make good wedding invites.
|300gsm - 350gsm||It is often used for business cards. This range is also suitable for wedding invitations and handmade cards.|
Step 3: Create your design
When designing your card game, keep in mind that the visual appeal is a crucial factor in attracting players. Use high-quality graphics and color schemes that are appealing and eye-catching. Be sure to include your logo and any other important information on the cards.
Step 4: Print a sample
Before ordering your entire print run, it's a good idea to order a sample of your cards to make sure you're happy with the final product. This will let you check the quality of the paper and printing, as well as ensure that the colors and design have come out as you intended.
It is acceptable to print samples to check the quality and design effect before placing a bulk order. After the sample is printed, it can be checked through video and pictures according to the customer's requirements, or it can be shipped directly to the customer.
Step 5: Choose your finishing options
Once you've chosen your printing method, paper stock, and design, it's time to consider any finishing options. This can include things like rounded corners, UV coating, or foil stamping. These finishing options can add a professional and polished look to your cards.
Step 6: Order and distribute
Once you've approved your sample and made any necessary changes or adjustments, it's time to place your order and get your custom card game printed. Once they're ready, distribute your cards to friends, family, or stores to start playing and sharing your creation.
