I used vistaprint Canada.  I ordered postcards and had a discount code.  They arrived in about two weeks (because I didn’t choose the express option)  I’m not sure about the timing if you need cards for Xmas though.  I also thought the quality was pretty good for what I paid 🙂

Are you using a photo only?  Or are you designing the layout yourself?  I created my own layout but didn’t read the sizing information on Vistaprint carefully enough and when I tried to upload my file (the first time) the photos looked warped.  So I quickly redid the WHOLE thing to the right size.  I’m sure there was probably an easier way of doing it but I’m not so skilled with the Photoshop.

There’s photos of my STD postcards on my blog.  http://weblog.xanga.com/StrawberryBaby78

Good luck!

I used Zazzle.com and they came out so great! I haven’t used the others, but I love Zazzle.

I used Vistaprint.com and they turned out great!

You can see them on my blog.

I have found that Costco is a great site to do Christmas cards. You can create them in the comfort of your home, and pick them up one hour later! Plus, they are really reasonably priced. Have fun!

I used shutterfly and was really happy with the result and price. You don’t have a lot of flexibility, but that was fine.

I was unhappy with Vistaprint.  We ordered our Thank you notes from them with a wedding picture.

The cards were cut and folded crookedly and there was a big blue "www.VistaPrint.com" on the back.

The photo looked nice and the price was cheap, but I was unhappy with the quality (and the fact that they didn’t warn about the logo on the back).

I’ve had great results with quality from Mpix.com.  I’ve used shutterfly before and Mpix’s cards were way higher quality.
