I’ve had nothing but great experiences with Vistaprint.  I printed out engagement party invites there, last year’s Christmas card and this year’s.

I talked about my STD postcards in this post.

They came out great! I should have looked at the postcard specs though before (mine were a little off so my borders were off.) Whenever I load what I’m printing onto their site, they look a little fuzzy. But when they print they’re PERFECT quality. I was worried when I uploaded but glad when I saw the finished products. I’ve done my Save-The-Date Cards, business card photo request cards, and a calendar.

I just made my Save-The-Date Cards through Vistaprint and overall things were good, with just a few minor problems:

One, half of the printed postcards were cut wrong, like far beyond the border that was pictured.  The other half were cut as they were supposed to be.  Luckily I got 100 free but only needed 50 of them, so it was okay.

Two, the text I had on back (which was a photoshop image file that I uploaded) did not print as clearly as I would have liked.  I had tested the image numerous times on different printers and did not have any problems with readability or contrast.  But the back of the printed postcards is kind of hard to read, like they skimped on ink a little. 

I used one of their free postcard coupons (which they send out like every day if you sign up) but it still cost me about $25 to upload an image for the front and the back and to ship.  So overall, it seems like I got what I paid for.  I am not sure that I would recommend them 100 percent.

I haven’t ordered any of my wedding paper goods there, but I’ve always had great experiences with them and found great prices. I got totes for my bridesmaid gifts there, and all kinds of labels for NW use. The shipping is ridiculously slow, but always within the range they estimate.

Also, sign up with an email account you don’t use as your primary one, because they send SO MANY emails

I have always used vistaprint for business use and love it.  The price can’t be beat and they always offer insaine discounts and freebies.  I plan on using them for engagement announcements.

Sign up for an email account. Just keep adding things like stamps, return address labels etc.

I uploaded pictures/images the front and back of mine, but only did the back in greyscale.  I got 100 standard postcards for likst $15.  Even if some of the edges are off, I am not going to be picky for that price. 

In the past I have ordered standard business cards and a few other things from them with their standard layouts and they have come out great.  We got a free hat with one order and the quality was REALLY nice.

Our Save-The-Date Cards are estimated to arrive soon so I will let you know how they come out.

We got ours back yesterday and were very disappointed. The image wasn’t centered on the page and it was crooked.

Yeah, sign up for deals via the email! I used one email deal and then in the confirm email, bought another 100 via another free deal in that confirmation.

If you really want to see their quality, I can send you one of mine. I purchased 200… and we moved our date! Lol, I hadn’t sent any out yet, so I have a CRAP TON of vistaprint postcards. I really liked them, but I think I’ll handmake mine now that I have tons of time!

We just ordered our std magnets about 2 weeks ago and they should here next week 🙂 I can’t wait but my experience with them has been great. We got 280 return address labels, 50 holiday photo cards with 5 photos and 100 std large magnets with 7 photos for 79.00 which includes shipping, I think we got a pretty good deal from the other prices I have seen out there. I cant wait to get our STD’s!!!!
