Review of 48 Hour Print Online Custom postcards 2014

Card stock was sturdy with a bit of matte finish. Front contains color grid, photo section. Back contains black and white text boxes, rainbow and drop shadow box and grid section Front section: the color grid is not even close to the original proof. The colors really lack vibrancy and brightness. In the photo section, the detail and quality is very good, and the colors match the proof excellently. Back section: The drop shadow is visible, but not as defined as one would hope. Rainbow colors text looks faded. The black and white text boxes look very good. White text on the black really pops off the page. The grid section looks ok, but the detail in the checkered grid is lost due to the size of the print.

48 Hour Print’s postcard card stock was sturdy with a bit of matte finish. We ordered front side with the color grid and a photo section. The back contains black and white text boxes, rainbow and drop shadow box, and a grid section. On the front section of the card the color grid is not even close to the original proof. The colors really lack vibrancy and brightness. However, in the photo section, the detail and quality is very good, and the colors match the proof excellently. On the back section, the drop shadow is visible, but not as defined as we had hoped. Rainbow colored text looks faded. The black and white text boxes look very good. White text on the black really pops off the page. The grid section looks ok, but the detail in the checkered grid is lost due to the size of the print. Because the print quality is so varied, we give 48 Hour Print 3/5 on postcard quality.

48 Hour Print has one of the most difficult ordering systems out there. You have to upload your files in the exact dimensions needed. No resizing, editing, or cropping can be done after design file upload. This is limiting to those who are not proficient in using graphics software. The one advantage to this type of ordering process is that it does ensure that none of your text or images will be cut off in the printing process. We give 2/5 to 48 Hour Print for its postcard ordering process. 48 Hour Print had a passable product at a good price. If your postcard contains more photos and black and white text boxes, it is a great choice. If you are skilled at graphic design, it is an even better option.
