Most of our orders are printed in offset using large printing presses. Processing the printing sheets and manufacturing the finished product is for the most part an automated process.
Minimum order quantities therefore apply, which are specified with the relevant product, and if you order larger quantities, the unit price will decrease.
Usually, the playing cards are finished with a special coating. This protects the print and ensures that the cards will glide when handled. However, a matt or glossy laminate finish is possible as well.
If you have special wishes regarding colours or coating, please indicate this in the comments section of the quote request form.
Low start-up costs make digital production the best solution for small print runs (from about 25 games). Printing is done using special computer-controlled printing and cutting machines, and supplemented by manual processing.
The print quality is comparable to that of an offset production. If desired, a gloss laminate coating may be used for extra protection.
Digital production is often chosen when the games will be used on a small scale or when they need to first be tested before ordering a larger print run.
Additionally, production times are shorter, often around 5 to 10 business days.
The rates for Fortuna’s products are based on submission of print-ready files. In other words, if you create these files yourself, or have them created by your communications department or design agency, there will be no additional costs.
Alternatively, you can have our experienced professional designer create the design according to your requirements. In that case, however, we will charge a minor design fee.
