Japan With Kids - Forums: Shopping in Japan: Business/ name cards

Hi, has anyone had business cards printed here. If so how long did it take and how much was it. Are there any companies you would recommend? Are there any companies where someone speaks some English? I need some printed quickly.

Here's a source owned by English speaking person:

There's also Kinko's everywhere, but English is not universal there.

handling everything printed, good English

Hi Janine, this is probably too late but might come in handy in the future!. I was just at Kinkos (now called Fedex Kinkos I think) and they do business cards too.
I used to think of them as a bit pricey for photo copies compared to my local convenience store, but they are matching the price now (in particular for color copies) and the quality is generally much better. There is one in Ikebukuro only about 200 meters out from the Tobu side. Walk to Marui Department store and turn left. It's down about 25 meters on the right side.

I'm certain that they have a good selection of English fonts and so on.

Tokyu Bldg. West 2nd Wing 1F
3-28-1 Nishiikebukuro, Toshima-ku, Tokyo 170-0021
tel: 03-5979-5171
Open 24 hours.

Store locator for Kinkos Japan:

The other place that I often go to that does business cards very quickly is the photo shop Sashinyasan 45 (see the conversation Shopping in Japan: Photo Processing below). But that is all in Japanese.

if you are in urgent need of business cards and you have a printer at home, another suggestion would be to buy those snappable business card print sheets from Tokyu Hands. They have about 5-6 types and they sure are very convenient. Just print them out using MS office Publisher and snap them up to own a bunch overnight!

For those not in a hurry, try If you like their free designs, you can order 250 in English and pay only the shipping. They now have a site in Japanese, but I haven't checked it out yet as to whether you can do both English and Japanese. I love the color and quality. The only hitch is a very pale sentence on the back of the cards advertising

I got my address stickers made from VistaPrint for full price.... i found it cheap... it cost me about 350 yen for 250 stickers... and about 350 yen for furikomi... so altogether 700-800 yen... and designing was a snap too..!!! what i did was kept the english vistaprint site and the japanese one open at the same time... i did the same thing in both the sites... and did not do the final step of ordering on the english one... but did that on the japanese one... we do not read any japanese... we noticed that both the sites are ditto... and did the same thing by pressing respective buttons...

i hope you understand what i mean... i am sure you can do that for visiting cards as well... they have the same templets on both the sites as i mentioned earlier...

I have used vistaprint too.
I received 250 free business cards and just paid for delivery. Here is the link I used...

I used the US site and delivery was very reasonable. It took about a week and cost about 5 pounds I think.
