Efficient accurate business card ordering

EPA has an online business card ordering system that is great- you type in your info, you see what the cards will look like when they are printed, and then you can route it to your boss for approval.


But my regional office (EPA Region 9) doesn't use it. Instead, we use paper forms, which later must be transcribed by hand. It takes up to 3 months to actually get your business cards (the ordering is only done once per quarter), and sometimes they have transcription errors and have to be redone. We can print our own cards on the printer, but they come out looking homemade.


Business cards are cheap and can be done overnight- why insert this inefficient system? My time is valuable!


When we have a good computer system, let's use it!

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
