i don't need to change what i said to make you feel better about your purchase, this isn't ISS ;]. in fact, i'll change my statement to "you should've bargained better and got more for your money." 500 - 1000 cards sounds a hell of a lot more realistic IMO.
and, im not talking down on your purchase, if you're happy with your cards and other people have said it was just a bit steep, why are you so worried about my response?
Why do you keep bringing up ISS?...
Anyways I'm not concern with your response, simply having a discussion. I didn't spend 320$ with the idea thy these were going to be my main source of networking, I've had them for about 2 months and I've handed out only a handful, I rely mostly on word of mouth and my site. Only thing that rubs me wrong is your choice of words, but is YOUR OPINION and I can respect that, till you show me a site or someones shop number that will print plastic cards the same quality as these 1000 for 200$ I'm gonna have to call ducktales and when you do I'll be thankful and the next time I order will be from one of your printing industry pals.
To the man that's worried about how many people will actually call you, it's life and it's part of the process of making a name for yourself. Some will call most won't, none of us here are professional photographers, including bana herself, yet some of us have spent over 5k in equipment I don't see wats the big "woow dude you got jipped" expression about the cards, specially coming from a person who owns a 3k+ setup to practically document her outtings judging from the flickr (complete assumption) unless you got friends in the canon industry aswell and were able to bargain that too.
