    With all the talk about SEO business; I thought some guys might need some business cards to get you started. By far the best price I have ever found.
    500 business cards for 1.99, thousands of templates....
    I didnt really look into that much, I dont know what they charge for shipping, you may want to watch that?

    Vista Print has a wicked check out process. I doubt you will get the cards packaged and shipped to your house for under $25.

    Also, you may want to provide a non affiliate link too - otherwise it just looks like your advertising.

    vistaprint.com .
    It looks like the cards are 1.99, matte finish? , about 9 for double sided, and about 4 for shipping....so for aroun $15-16 you get 500.....not that bad .032 cents per card.

    If thats the case then it is a good deal! Last time I ordered from them it ended up costing me something like $50 all together even though their special was for $19.99 at the time. I remember thinking their checkout process rivaled that of GoDaddy.

    agreed...I think gotprint is better and less expensive if you need 5000 cards.

    I used VistaPrint and had a horrible experience with them. I ordered 500 for around $20 including shipping. I got it unaligned and off centered. There was white edges around the entire thing and it was totally unusable. It was a custom design but it was done within their size requirements. I never used them after that. If you want business cards from these guys, you better use their templates, or you have a chance of getting some messed up business cards.

    I used gotprint, bought 1k for $20, and it came perfect. Great price and great shipping time. The only reason why VistaPrint is so damn cheap is because they upsell you on SHIPPING! Lol seriously. If you don't buy ground shipping from them, it will take nearly a month to get to your place. Their "upgraded" shipping is around $15. Ridiculous right?

    In conclusion, go with GotPrint.

    Vistaprint will upsell you like a Vegas hooker.

    As mentioned above the quality is also questionable, I've had a few orders for various items come out poorly with them in the past. Prepare to grow old waiting for delivery of your goods if you don't take the shipping upsells. ;)

    It's cheap but are you sure it's quality is up to par? It might be a good idea to ask for some samples just so that you have an idea of how your business cards will eventually turn out. Cheap isn't always low quality but you do need to exert a certain effort at finding the reliable printers that would be worth as much as they are charging.

    This wasn't worth the bump, Vista Print is not up to par on the quality and their checkout process is like contacting an std. Did you even read the thread?!
