    This is good if you need business cards (get the premium glossy cards, they're more but they're very worth it), high gloss flyers, postcards etc...

    VistaPrint does this often and it has come around again. Found this while browsing for VistaPrint coupons.

    http://www.groupon.com/deals/vista-print-winter-ventura-county

    I've already purchased 8 of these. You can buy 2 at a time per account, if you want to buy more just register another email address and buy more. Doesn't matter if you use the same card all 8 times.

    It's a great deal especially when VistaPrint has other sales, like their 50% off sales. You do have to jump through some hoops to make it work with special promotions because they make you go to a special page to use the Groupon.

    Basically to use the Groupon AND a special promotion at VistaPrint:

    1. Go to the link they give you to use the Groupon. Create an account and add your items to cart as well as the groupon voucher. It will give you the credit for the $70.
    2. Close the browser and then reopening the link with the discount - typically I use retailmenot.com.
    3. Go to your shopping cart and you will see all items discounted with the groupon still applied. If your items are not discounted (though I've never had this issue), remove them from the cart and go back and re-add them at the special rate.

    The other day they had a 50% off sale. I got about $160 dollar worth of stuff for $17 + $5.99 shipping.

    As of this posting there is only 12 hours left on this one, but VistaPrint does this about every month or so but you have to search Google or other deals sites like BradsDeals to find what county/cities they're running them in.

    Keep in mind you don't have to use the value right away, they typically give you about 4 months or so to use it.

    Keep an eye out! Happy saving.

    I've had similar experiences but I've found when you upgrade the quality (I.E. on business cards and postcards) to premium gloss - the outcome is MUCH better. When you go for the cheaper stuff, expect cheaper quality. Their car magnets are top quality as are their t-shirts, flyers (again select premium gloss) and window decals. Their mouse pads are poor however. The matte is already coming up and i've only had this one for a couple months.

    Overall their product has improved by adding more premium options which of course brings up cost, but at the higher end, they are equal with other providers.

    I personally don't care for Vista Print. Got print is cheap and produces a really nice card. 1000 cards under $20...

    Agreed. But do you know someone that can compete for the price?

    It's not about the price, it's about the perceived image. Unless your image is that your business is cheap...
