    Who do you get business cards from (Dont say Vistaprint to me!)
    We had a run-in with Vistaprint today, so we wont be sending them any more business.

    Who else is good, we have photoshop custom artwork that we need to put on our cards, pricing is a factor, but not the end of the world

    Thanks!

    Sorry, I get all of mine through VistaPrint.com. I normally wait for the really good sales and usually get 1000 full color glossy cards for $15-20 shipped. You just can't beat that price. I've never had a customer service issue.

    i use to make very professional looking ones with CorelDraw. A lot cheaper than buying them! You can get perforated paper-stock for business cards that will go through an inkjet printer. It looks just like it came from a professional. Actually ill tell ya what. send me what you need on business cards, ill make up the cards and you can print them on the business card paper. PM me if your interested

    EDIT: should have noted. il do it free of charge. you just buy the paper at staples

    Umm, No they don't look professional, they look like sh!t Most real people run away when they see them when anyone can thermograph 1K cards for like $20-30 --- if you can't spend (or waste as anyone may take it) on your after or first image, why bother being in business? To save some bucks? Or to make them?

    Spend the damn $20 to make the $200 - that's the game and what makes it so fun.

    what type of business cards do you buy? i have a stack here of business cards, and the ones i made dont look any different than the other cards (other than the CMYK printed glossy ones.. which i must admit look cool). Actually the one i made for my old computer company look better than most cards.

    Im sorry. its been a while since i made them but they ARE NOT perforated. they are just thick stock that you cut with one of those big paper cutters (you know the ones that make straight lined 90 degree angles and such).

    then again im also from canada. maybe we just dont use fancy cards.

    I use Overnight Prints and like them a lot, but based on the feedback here I will probably try alexbet next time.

    I tried the make your own cards thing a few years ago. You can buy high quality stock that 'breaks apart' perfectly. No visible perforations.
    The problem I had was with the printing, not all cards were centered, running ink, etc.
    Maybe I needed a upgrade from my $69 printer, but better for me to just buy the cards.

    1K (1,000) cards thermographed for $20-$30. Make sense now?

    The thin card stock shows wimpyness, I've wasted many a holiday card order because they wouldn't stand up on a desk (they'd flop down in an hour because the card stock was too thin).

    I guess it depends on your ticket value, to justify the card stock fee.

    What kind of a "run-in?"

    I was about to order some postcards from them, but now I'm not so sure about that.

    It seems TJ is looking for printing service not designing service as he already has a "photoshop custom artwork".

    First order was Okay. Second order never arrived, after paying extra for faster shipping.

    Then four emails sent - no reply.
    Then two telephone calls - had to leave voice mail - no reply.

    Finally received an email two-months after my order (supposedly responding to my email 30-days earlier). They actually had the YNW to say that they were busy with the holidays and I might see a real response to my email after the holidays (this was the first week of December). No mention of my cards.

    Stay away, unless you are a gambler. If you're a gambler, then it might be pretty exciting
