    Hello everyone! I'm looking to start a small greeting card business. Anyone know of any companies who would print cards, give you blank cards and envelopes (with your name on the back), provide plastic bags printed with your name on them who are Irish-based, or at least do business in Ireland? Thanks.

    This is what I would do;

    • Go to your local card shop, look at various cards and see who prints them
    • Search Google, telephone directories and http://www.goldenpages.ie for printers / greeting card suppliers
    • Look for printers / greeting card suppliers on online databases such as http://ie.kompass.com/
    • Spend some time on the phone contacting the companies you found. Tell them the services you require and ask if they can provide those services. If they can't, ask if they can recommend someone who could.

    Doing all of the above will give you a good understanding of the suppliers to the industry and what's available to you.

    Welcome to Business Advice Forum, good luck with your venture and please do post back if you have any further questions and to update us on how you are getting on with it.

    Gift Cards Printing are a piece of your company that is going to travel with your customers and be given to others. It's important that your gift cards are professional for this reason.

    The second reason is reliability. At Security ECard Specialists are designed, printed, and encoded in house for maximum quality and reliability.
