If you haven't noticed there is now a new forum area for Print on Demand sites.  There is also a sub-forum area for a new advertiser and well established POD site www.theartofbusinesscards.com

TAOBC was previously PrintBusinessCards.com but they seperated the two domains - one for designers and one more geared towards the buyers.  Some people have been reporting decent earnings creating business cards.  I haven't tried it out myself but I plan to soon.  It might be a nice diversion for those who need a break from the regular stock sites.

I like it so far. :) I haven't put much work into uploading templates yet but get some sales. The $20 art file sales are especially nice.

still with print business cards... or the art of business cards.. now.    i enjoy making them. it is a challenge sometimes to visualize a card for certain categories but sometimes you can take one and run with it.  still consistently my best earner each month.  and yes the art files are a nice addition!

You must sign up (regester) before you can read the terms, rules, pay, etc..

That leaves me out as I never sign up before I read ALL the terms.

Oh well,

Why not register, read the terms and if you don't like them, don't submit anything?

Waste of time. They could put the info up front and then if the photographer likes the terms he/she could then sign up. I always feel they are hiding something if they do not put it up front. I have wasted my time on a dozen or more sites by signing up first, don't like the rules, terms, etc. ... so now I refuse.

Just me,

I was all gung-ho about the business card site last summer when there was a bunch of discussion here.  I uploaded, I think, 25 designs and was hoping for great things.  Since then I believe I've had three sales at $5 each.  If things pick up, I might try to add more, but it's definitely a "wait and see" thing for me right now.

I gave up submitting there after so many of my designs were mutilated by the CMYK to RGB conversion process. I did enquire about this and was given a load of rubbish as an answer.

Me too massman...I just try to stay away from those shades or desaturate the design. I actually make more money off their site than I do the microstock sites and enjoy doing because it doesn't matter with them rather the photo has noise because it not a large photos and you can alter designs. I just enjoy doing it and I get sales on a regular basis...$5.00 per card and $20.00 per art file payable every month automatically by the third wednesday. Beats waiting till you've hit that $100.00 amount or $50.00 for those sites hanging in the balance

Hi PowerDroid,

I'm unsure as to who you are in our community at TheArtofBusinessCards.com and PrintBusinessCards.com. If you don't mind, would you please send me a message or email me at tim@cardadmin.com and let me know who you are. I'd like to have the opportunity to look at your portfolio on our site and see if everything is okay or if there is perhaps some tweaking that can be done in order to generate some sales for you.

Thanks!

TimMc

Hello Massman,

Unfortunately, the same issue applies - I need some help in knowing who you are in our community. Please email me, tim@cardadmin.com so I can take some time to look at your portfolio. I don't like to hear things like "gave up submitting" in reference to our site. I'd like to have the opportunity to see what can be done.

Thanks! ~Tim
