I’ve used Vista print for my business cards and they came out great.  They do offer some of the cheaper options.  I’m also thinking of using them to print our holiday cards.  One thing I would say to be careful is, after you make your purchase, they offer additional items.  If you click on it (just to get more info) it automatically gets charged to your card.  I’m sure you could cancel it later, but it’s still very annoying.

Trust what you read about consumer website about the compliants of Vistaprint because I am a victim of it myself.

 

I ordered those free business cards 10 weeks ago and they still haven’t arrived.  I called them and a guy with Jamacian accent answers the phone and said he will send me another "free" business cards. It’s been 10 weeks now and I still dont see it from my mailbox.  

 

Go with something local and be careful!

I ordered my save the dates, they looked great everyone loved them. Especially me because I got 100 for free,  just $5.43 for shipping. I chose the "slow mail option" and it took about three weeks to get them.

As a company I ordered business cards for everyone here since they didn’t want to spend the full pop for expensive ones. We uploaded our logos and they came out fine. We got those super fast. No complaints.

My finace ordered promotional postcards as well and received them within about three weeks, glossy nice quality post cards.

Oh but the other post was right, be careful because they offer extra things; if you are flying from screen to screen you will add something extra by accident.

I had to have business cards rushed to me and had no problems.

I ordered my Save The Date postcards from Vistaprint with the free promo code, and received them in a week.  They all turned out great.  My Fiance also ordered business cards from them in the past without any problems.

We also ordered our save the date postcards with them and had no problems at all. Shipping was faster than quoted, and the final product was exactly what we expected.

I’ve ordered three times from Vista Print.

First time- I ordered magnets, flat cards, note pads & postcards. I paid for basic shipping, but they only took like 2 weeks and came via USPS in an envelope seperated into two shipments.

Second time- I ordered more flat cards. Got them in 3 weeks and also came via USPS.

Third time- I ordered my save the date magnets and got 50 for $27. I also ordered a couple more note pads, sticky notes, return address labels and an address stamper for my FH’s job. They all came out great, they look so cute and I got them in less than 1 week via DHL.

Oh and I actually got a follow up call today to make sure everything was great and to make sure I was happy with my orders.

 

I totally recommend to anyone without any reservation.

quinnkd, could you elaborate on what the complaint you saw was?

I use them all the time for both work and business (we do a lot of promo cards for work, both the large and small postcards, as well as their flyers, and I’ve ordered postcards for save-the-dates and our holiday cards too).  The only times I’ve had problems are when I’ve used the "standard" shipping, and it’s taken FOREVER to come.  I believe they use media mail or some other lousy class (USPS fault, not really VP’s), and combined w/ the fact that I’m in the middle of the Pacific, it has taken a month and a half to get things sometimes. 

Yes, that "add stuff on" thing is pretty tricky, and I’m not a fan, but it’s not caused me any problems.

I DID call one time and spoke to a foreign person about my order and he was very unhelpful…but it turned up a couple days later, no problem.  The 2-day air service (UPS) usually is only a few (< $10) dollars more than the standard option, so I always take that now.

Quality has been quite excellent except for their address stamp — I didn’t realize it would be a crappy little piece of rubber that I had to stick on myself.

We ordered Save the Date announcement cards and magnets from them earlier this week and just received a shipping notice.  I can’t speak to the quality until they arrive but we did notice that the prices and discounts varied a lot based on how we accessed their site.  For example, we saw 50% off prices in the sponsored link headers when we searched for "save the date announcement" or "save the date magnet"  on Google.   We had to play around a bit to get the 50% offer on both items because it kept toggling to one or the other based on which Google search link we used.

We ordered save-the-date magnets from them with a design I made in Illustrator and they came in about a week earlier than they said it would (we are in MA).So about two or three weeks standard shipping? The quality was nice but it was cut a little off (although I’m picky so it could’ve been just me). But it was an overall great deal with no service problems!

I ordered our save the date postcards from them, and they came quickly (can’t remember how quickly now).  i was happy with the quality, but the color was different than it looked on my computer screen (not terribly surprising, though).  overall, i was happy with their service, but i never had to call them either.

I used them to order my Save-the-Date magnets, and it was super easy. I used Photoshop (they provide a template for you to get the sizing correct). Make sure you get the proof…it’s only $1 or so, but shows you exactly how it will appear. The colors were slightly off in real life, but that could be due to my comp. Shipping was fast too. They give so many different offers…the one that worked best for me was 140 free return address labels, and 25% off the entire order.

My friend also used them for her Save-the-dates, Thank yous, and moving announcements, with no problems. Just be sure to check your ‘cart’ before paying!
