    Default Who prints your business cards?

    I cant believe Vista Print charges so much just to print. What made me run away from them is they charge $5 for each of my own designs that I upload? $10 for nothing? I dont think so. I went with uprinting.com, much cheaper for what I wanted, hope the quality is good. Just want to know if anyone knows a better way that is proven.

    I have been using Vista Print for some time now and am happy with them. Quality is good and the pricing is fair. Once you have your design uploaded, reordering more cards for my drivers or adding new drivers to the group is easy and economical. You only have to pay for your upload once, along as you are not changing your design with every order. I use them for my business card, tri fold brochures, pens, etc.

    I also started with VistaPrint, following a link to a sale (they are one of those places that always have a sale on something, like GoDaddy)

    I was happy with the price and quality of the cards, only issue I had was my own goof (duplicating the design on the front to be greyscaled on the back under the back text, completely forgot about that all the front text was part of that design, luckily being white text, it was not that noticeable with how light they did the background image on the back). They do try to upsell like crazy (again like godaddy).

    I did find a local (well local to where I used to live and was visiting) that my cousin used and liked. I thought the quality of my cousin's cards and the samples they provided were great! Also I liked that if I ordered right there, I could pick the cards up in 3 days. One big difference is they use full size business cards (2"x3.5"), not the cropped down ones vistaprint uses (about 1/8" less in each direction.) It doesn't seem like much of a difference when you are looking at only smaller ones, but put a full size one in with the VP size ones, and you notice it more.

    I'm waiting for either my original order from VP supply to run out, or more likely in July when I do a new branding of my company and I will order from him.

    They are located in Hartville Ohio, actually inside the Hartville Marketplace. Anyhow his site is http://www.premiumbcard.com/ (just looked, found their other company name on FB: https://www.facebook.com/ksmemories )

    Pyro and Andy will have to chime in, but Vista Print appears to be one of the best cost options out there for printing cards and other stuff. They also offer LOTS of promotional discounts from time to time that you can take advantage of that dramatically lowers the cost of printing stuff.

    As for me, I went with Fedex Office back then and found out that I dramatically overpaid for the cards.

    I have to say vistaprint may have rekindled my interest as a customer. Just got yet another email from them, this time advertising free uploads and half off alot of what I wanted so Im giving them a shot for 250 cards, still a little higher in price even with the free 7-10 shipping but if the quality is better, I may look to them for specials when I'll be running out but before I run out of cards. They really have alot of other great products I may be interested in. Also picked up a pocket card holder so they'll stay in better condition than in my wallet. And to think I was about to remove myself from their mailing list.
