I have looked at SmugMug whom I have an account with. For 5"x7" blank note cards with an image on the front and printed text on the back indicating my website, etc., we are looking at $35.00 for 25 cards not including shipping. I have looked at a couple of other sites and don't see much of a difference in pricing.

Does anyone know of a service with pricing geared toward photographers for resale? The event will also be keeping 30% of the sale price, so I am wondering if it is even worth it in the first place?

Appreciate the help!
I print my own cards using paper stock from Red River paper http://www.redrivercatalog.com/. I use their "Pecos River Gloss" in the 7X10 in size which makes 5X7 cards.

I create a template in Photoshop and insert 4X6 image files and any text as needed. The cost is about $1.20 per card including ink and envelopes. The only thing you can't do is print borderless cards.
