I’m planning to order STD postcards from vistaprint.com. Has anyone done this before? Their prices are super affordable and I can’t find a better deal elsewhere. Does anyone know if they include their logos in each postcard? I know they do for business cards but I wasn’t sure if they do the same for postcards.
I’m also using a layout from their site and uploading a couple of our own pictures. The resolution of each picture is about 150 or higher.
Thanks in advance!

I use vistaprint ALL the time for both work and personal use and love them. Their logo can actually be removed from the back of both their postcards and business cards. When you are editting your item, click "view back" of post card and select the "blank" option. If the logo still shows up, just highlight it with your mouse and hit delete. 🙂 I ordered save-the-date postcards for both my sister & cousin when they got married and they came out great! Enjoy!!

I ordered mine from there and they turned out great. I scanned a travel poster for one side and put our info on the other side using MS Publisher and then converted it into a PDF.

I used Vistaprint for our STDs, I chose the standard mailing and it came in less than a week!
I didn’t know about the logo showing up on people’s postcards until AFTER I had already sent in my files. I was rushing because they had a free 150 postcard deal, I just paid for shipping. Luckily there was no logo in sight when I received the printed pieces. Probably because I had a custom design on BOTH sides.
I was quite satisfied with the result, the colors were quite good. The trimming on some pieces were a bit rough – which I’ve read is often the case with Vistaprint. But for $30 cdn – I was satisfied!

I used VistaPrint for my STDs as well, and they turned out great. My standard shipping took 2 weeks, but they weren’t late. I would definitely take advantage of their constant offers/discounts. The one thing I didn’t realize, was that they charge you for pictures uploaded, so while we got the postcards for free, there was still a charge per picture of about $5. Even with that, they only cost us $25 total. And we had no logos on ours at all.

We used Vistaprint too. Like Buckeye said, you should be able to find a coupon online that gives you free cards (you just pay shipping, and a charge for uploading a custom image)…
They were great, no logo issues for us (I don’t remember even thinking about it), quick, and good quality.

I used vistaprint for the stds. uploaded a design we had done by a pro. the linen finish is really nice (even tho you can’t see what it looks like very well on the web) if you have a graphic design as opposed to a photo. highly recommended

I did also, and they turned out fine. There was no logo but I used both the front and the back. The photo printing is not of the greatest quality but it was adequate for a STD, and you can’t beat the price!

we used overnightprints.com, which our graphic designer friend highly recommended. prices are great, and they offer a matte finish as well as the glossy. we got 250 postcards for $80.
just another option for ya.

No logo – but I found their sizes to be too small (get lost in the mail) or too big (slightly obnoxious) and went here instead to get a nice 5×7 size. Good service and great prices. Plus as I have used vista print for all my small business – I can safely say I got a better quality product from this place:
The order process took an extra day as they like to verify things before printing them – but I did really like what I got.

I got our save-the-dates from VistaPrint and ordered the 7 day shipping, they arrived in I think 3 days. They were so cute and really good quality! They saved us a little bit of money by using postcard stamps instead of regular stamps. I think that they had their logo on our cards, but it was so small that it didn’t bother me. I would definitely recommend using VistaPrint, though. Just be sure to check out their postcard requirements thing – I had some writing on the bottom right hand side of the back (the side where the stamp goes) and I didn’t read their requirements and the post office ended up putting some sort of writing on top of my writing. Good luck! 🙂

Oh, we ordered the free 100, so we only had to pay for shipping which can’t be beat! Hooray for Vista Print! 🙂

You ladies inspired me so I finally got around to making mine tonight! 50% off wasn’t too bad! And it seems like they have some new modern designs then the last time I looked a few months ago! I am so excited now!
Did you hand address them or put a label on them???

I ran my postcards back through the printer, but I would have done labels in a heartbeat. But I’m not fancy person.

I just got my STD’s from Vistaprint! I designed my own and then uploaded it! Not only did i spend less than 100, i am super happy with them. I got the bigger post card size, which is not originally what i had planned, but i’m still happy nonetheless.
