Bookmarks are a great idea. How do you get them?

I don't think Vistaprint do bookmarks, although I read an article about how their rack cards can be cut in half to make bookmarks.

I used http://www.stormpress.co.uk but they were local to me at the time. They might be quite pricey when you add postage. Usually a local printer will be more flexible with products that are 'off-menu' than an online company.

Thanks. I was thinking of formatting some and just printing them off myself. A friend has a guillotine for cutting up business cards  and labels, so it would be just a matter of formatting and printing onto cardboard ... i hope.

I live way in the sticks, so I'm not sure if there is a local printer handy

I admire your patience printing your own media. Today I put a sheet of labels in nine times (I kid you not) before an address printed in the right place.

I've been there, so I empathise. Some days you are just better to walk away and come back when your head isn't fit to burst.
