What the…

Since I was down to my last 25 Jayne hat business cards, I ordered more. This time, I ordered double-sided, with care info on the reverse, killing two birds with one stone.

The problem? They came back looking like hot buttered CRAP.

The old one is on the right. The new one is on the left. The exact same graphic file was used for the front of both cards. The colors are allegedly identical in all backgrounds. I thought I’d picked the same coating for the new cards as for the old ones – did I not? And why are there little whitish spots on all the new ones? There weren’t any on the old ones.

I know this is perfectionistic of me, but these are how I represent myself to the world. I want them to look the way I want them to look. Namely, professional, and not like I printed them out on my laser printer at home. Instead I paid for a thousand double-sided business cards that look WRONG! ARGH!

ETA: I heard back from customer service pretty quickly after I wrote them a polite note. The new batch was printed on a different printer than the original batch. They’ve offered to reprint them for me. I asked whether that would fix the specific issues mentioned, and they’ve printed a batch of 100 and are sending them to me for my approval. Based on what I say, we’ll decide what to do next. Good customer service from PrintsMadeEasy!
