LOL no response? Really.

I've used them. I only have gotten cheap shitty ones made though. They were better than I expected, but no fancy paper or logos. For the price you cant go wrong.

I've used them many times. My most recent order was for the glossy ones and was very happy with them. Wouldn't hesitate to buy again.

I recently used them after seeing an ad on tv for 500 cards for $15.00. It was a simple design. Nothing fancy. Good cards. I was expecting cheap quality, flimsy cards. Was surprised when they arrived 4-5 days later and were the nice thick kind. I'd recommend them. And mine didn't have a Vista Print logo on the back.

Vista Print might give you hundreds/thousands more than their competitors. But the quality is low. Ya you can "upgrade" to a more premium card, but I'd never order through them.


I've ordered through www.moo.com. They are more pricy, but you can easily add your logo and to the card, request samples to be mailed out to you, then make your really.

Thanks for the tip Christian Bale.

Never used them for business cards, but had posters printed through them when we first opened our kart track and will never use them again. Quality was piss poor, and what is a $20 poster turns into a $35 poster after bogus fees. Started having my stuff done at Costco. Fraction of the price, hour turn around, and much much better quality.

They have a Photoshop template on their website, so I designed my own cards. Don't opt in for the express printing/shipping, mine always showed up within a week. Look around the web for deals, a lot of times podcasters (sp?) have really good referral coupon codes.

The free ones on the site have the logo on the back, kinda like an ad supported business card.

Don't get the free ones, the ones I posted a pic of, which are mine, I used the matte cardstock "upgrade" they offer. If you design your own and get some of the better options they come out real nice for the price.

I've ordered from VistaPrint about a dozen times and they're honestly the worst quality cards you can get.

Gloss, non-gloss, heavier paper weight, etc, I've varied a lot of options.

If you're a cheap, unintelligent, and want a business card that will be thrown away 9.5/10 times - order from Vista Print so you can impress your Money Magazine reader friends.

They are perfectly fine. They are fast, their card stock is pretty good, if you just want a card to hand out to people without going all "Patrick Bateman" on people, they are great.
