"48HourPint.com is a great choice for those who already have designs, but beware of subpar print quality and overall order value. "

Ordering (4.6/5.0)

Advertiser Disclosure

Geared towards a more advanced user, 48HourPrint.com does not feature an online postcard design tool, requiring pre-made artwork files to order. For those who do have pre-made files, we found 48HourPrint.com to be one of the best in terms of ordering processes. Navigating the site and uploading files were all very easy, resulting in quick order placement.

Templates (3.9/5.0)

Despite not having a design tool, 48HourPrint.com has a lot of different blank templates users can download--a great site for users who know what they want.

Online Design Tool: No online design tool is offered--users must make their designs off-site with a downloadable guide. Update: Though we haven't tested it, a representative from 48HourPrint let us know an online design tool is now available.

Delivery (4.7/5.0)

Quality (3.2/5.0)

Despite including one of the most precise border cuts out of all the orders we reviewed, the inaccuracy of the colors, along with very poor detail clarity, made the postcards from 48HourPrint.com some of the worst when looking at overall quality. The print as a whole looked washed-out, which caused color issues, and design elements such as text and lines severely lacked clarity.

Value (3.4/5.0)

The postcards from 48HourPrint.com were very poor when looking at overall value. The biggest negative was the shotty print quality, which was well below average. In addition to that, the price was on the higher side, featuring one of the more expensive costs per print that we reviewed. Both of these aspects combined to easily make this order the poorest in terms of value.
