Default Business Cards
Anyone have a company they suggest to order busienss cards that are not too expensive? I would prefer full color.

The only one I have tried is Vista Print. My husband and I ordered business cards from them for another business we have and it took them 3 weeks to deliver them, then they sent us someone else's cards!!!

We just made them give us our money back because we lost any condfidence in them, not to mention we did not want to wait another 3 weeks.

Any suggestions would be great! Thanks!

OH I didnt see that you used Vista Already, I have had good luck but others not so lucky - for my husband's company we used 123Print. They are good too! I just also checked Staples for some supplies and they have very simular items!

I created my own (originally in MS Word then re-done in Photoshop) and took them to OfficeMax ( a local office supply shop) to have them printed. It was nice 'cuz I can get as many (or few) as I want for a small fee.

If you go Lily's route you could also buy the card stock paper and print your own at home as you need them.

use vistaprint and haven't had any problems with them. Thanks for the heads up though.

I found a local company (through my networking) who are fab. You may want to check our local printing companies who will match prices and provide excellent customer service.

I take mine to OfficeMax with my own custom cardstock (grey marble) 'cuz they can also cut them a lot cleaner than I can at home. My cards run .03/page (8-up) for b/w copies and a flat rate cut charge ($6) for as many/few pages as I have them cut.

I use The Brochure Place (www.thebrochureplace.com). They will even send you a sample pack of their work if you request it on their website. The quality is OUTSTANDING. The price is right too, $68 pluss taxes and shipping for 1,000 full-colour (two-sided) cards. The cards I just had done came to about $95 all-in which is a great price. I had 100 done in a hurry by a local printer for $60 while I was waiting for my cards to arrive from The Brochure Place. When they did arrive I compared the two different printers' cards. The richness of colour, gloss finish and weight of the card stock outshone the local printers. I've used them for clients and my business cards and love their service.

Thanks Julia. I will have to look into that. I am just nervous about comitting to 1,000 cards at this point. It looks like that is their smallest package. Great deal though. Thanks!
