I get my cards collated in sets?
Yes. We have a minimum order
of 5 cards - 1,000 sets for this process.
are the cards collated?
You have several options regarding collation.
Here are a few examples assuming an order of 10
different cards at 2,000 quantity per card:
Sets/All Cards Collated - This will yield
2,000 sets of cards with 10 cards per pack.
All the cards packs will be collated in
the same, specified order.
Collation - Our minimum run for collation
is 1,000 packs. This will yield 1,000 sets
of cards with 10 cards per pack. All the
card packs will be collated in the same,
specified order. The uncollated cards will
be provided in bulk boxes.
Sets/All Cards Collated - with special card
randomly inserted A premium/special card
can be inserted in a specific number of
packs as determined by the client.
Sets - The example of 10 cards @2,000 each
will yield 20,000 total cards. These cards
can be collated into random sets like traditional
sports cards. The number of cards per pack
is determined by the client. These 20,000
cards could be split into the following:
2,000 sets of 10 cards/pack
2,500 sets of 8 cards/pack
4,000 sets of 5 cards/pack
I add a prize to the pack?
Yes. You can provide us with whatever
you want added to the pack, assuming it is flat
and will fit in the pack.
options do I have for the wrap on the cards?
The least expensive option is clear plastic
wrap. If desired, the first card in the set can
be designed as a header card.
is a header card?
A header card is the top card of the set
which shows through the wrap. It’s like
a “cover” for the set. This is a clever
way to avoid printing on the wrap material which
can be costly and requires very large minimum
Even if you decide to go with a random card collation,
you may want to have the same header card in each
there other packaging options?
Yes…if you want to do the collating
and assembly yourself. Plastic re-sealable team
bags or snap tight cases are good, low quantity
set options. Both of these items are available
at trading card shops.
is the cost to collate and wrap the cards?
Pricing is dependent on the number of
cards per set, the order of the cards (random
or identical) and the total number of packaged
sets. To give you a rough idea, 10 cards collated
into 2,000 identical sets would cost about $1.00
per set. This cost is in addition to the cost
of printing and shipping the cards.
long does it take to get the cards collated and
Most projects require only a few days
after the cards are printed. Including the design
and printing time for the cards, the entire process
is just under 4 weeks.
