The news isn't good. I don't know if anyone is manufacturing punch
(tab) cards anymore. I've done some poking around.
National Card West in Long Beach, Calif was acquired by Pacific Data
Forms, Inc (www.pacificdataforms.com). PDF sold the punch card
equipment to B&D Litho in Phoeniz, AZ, but B&D either no longer has
it, or doesn't know it has it, but either way, doesn't make tab
Don't call the 702 number for National Card West in Las Vegas -- that
number now belongs to a private individual.
U.S. Card Corporation in Tiffin, Ohio has closed, according to Doug
Pacific Paper Products (http://www.pacpaper.com/lccc-contab.html)
makes continuous feed tab cards -- but that's not what we're after.
Ron at B&D gave me these references from the 2001 Print Solutions
Magazine Buyers Guide, all of which went to a dead end:
Kay Toledo Tag, Toledo, OH
Impact Printing, Hayward, CA
Windy City Press, IL
Marathon Label, Wassau, WI
could probably do it but hasn't in the last 15 years
and doesn't have the dies to cut the cards -- would have to
be a custom job
Doug Jones (Mr. Punched Card himself) may be the right person to
respond to this -- Doug, do you know of any card manufacturers left?
