I am very pleased with my most recent job from Modern Postcard. Even tho' I sent what were probably confusing instructions and substandard images, the layout, design, color, and printing results were excellent. Job was done on time and shipped to me immediately, so I was able to meet a mailing deadline. I will continue to use Modern Postcard's services, because nobody else I have tried comes even close to their quality and reliability. I have already received lots of compliments on the most recent card. I highly recommend Modern Postcard, especially for people in the arts, where quality of image counts for a lot.
