Hi all, I remember reading and seeing some good deals for getting business cards printed on Bicycle Stock. Can people point to the correct places to get this done? Thanks!

I'm pretty sure you can get playing-card size business cardswith rounded cornerson Bicycle stock directly from US Playing Card company. But not business-card size business cards (with square corners) on playing card stock.

If you find that please post it immediately because several people here would love to know.

I want it on actual card stock and on bicycle card size. I know I have seen the ads before for this but I can't find them.

Thanks luigimar, but I already looked there. This ad I am asking about was specifically about prinitng your business cards on the bicycle card faces and it was an ad placed in the Genii magazine perhaps I'll repost this in the advertisement section and see if somebody watching that forum can help. Thanks.

Nathan:
Was it an ad to print your business card directly over printed Bicycle faces?

It was ad saying that you can print your business cards on standard bicycle cards face and the back would be the standard 808 rider back. I have seen these ads everywhere but now I can't find anything when I google :-(

Every deck of Mandolin backs I've purchased for the past year or so has had an advertising card included for business cards printed on Bicycle stock, maybe that's what you're thinking of?

Nathan -- I think this is the ad you are looking for. 5000 cards for $300 -- you can edit the face or backs.

Bicycle also offers decks on Bicycle stock with custom backs. You upload a JPG file and they make that the back of the deck. I printed a deck that put my contact info inside the rectangular box on the normal rider back (instead of the two angles on bicycles) and would give them out as business cards. It works out to about 40 cents a card, but I don't give out a lot of cards so that works fine for me. LINK

Lybrary.com sells playing card stock that you can print your own cards on, and varnish to coat it with. You have to cut them and round the corners, though.
