    Need to get some more cards, looking for a fresh design and quality paper. Where do you get some premium business made/printed? Personal experience only please. ;)

    vistaprint, I have ordered many different types from them, unbeatable deals and the cards always look professional. Decent choices in templates too.

    Also very interested in a good answer to this.

    Local places in Australia charge around $200 for anything with decent quality paper/printing.

    And Vistaprint is the only place I've used online and they have the worst quality paper I've ever seen.

    I usually use Overnight Prints instead of Vista Print. The last time I compared them (a couple years ago), Overnight Prints were a little better quality, and the price was only slightly higher.

    Check retailmenot.com before you purchase for coupon codes. I think it's also worth signing up for their email list. The run good deals really often.

    Was going to buy Vista print to test. Finished everything, verified it all, then they charge 400% on shipping.

    Product Total: $5.99
    Shipping & Processing (Priority 7 Days): $26.27
    HST: $4.19
    Total: $36.45

    They remind me at least once on each page about their special deals and how much I'm saving with them, then they just charge a ton on the last page.

    Will not be ordering from them.

    Yea their shipping is rediculous and there quality is crap unless you click all the upsells on the product in which case your order total skyrockets.

    I got a batch of 500 cards done and honestly I'll leave them lying around places but I would feel embarassed handing them out at a formal networking event. They look terrible.

    Really? I got to grab a coupon. Do you guys design your cards with their designer tool or just upload your existing file? Just wondering if there's a noticeable quality difference, as it could be worth trying a new design if their own designs print nicer.

    Not bad, I actually like them, unless check out comes along.

    They don't accept PayPal and again don't have any reasonable shipping. Come on, isn't there some company that can ship 100 cards for less than $20?

    Depends what country you're in. But letterpress printing is always far better, and consequently far more expensive.

    In the UK, I use these guys: http://www.blushpublishing.co.uk/

    Well worth it!
