Okay, so I use VistaPrint for 98% of my digital printing (both Magic related and otherwise), and the company swamps my mailboxes -- both virtual & 3D -- with various offers. Usually they're tempting, but this one...well, I think I can afford to pass it up:

"75% Off Premium Business Cards

250 Reg. $19.99
Save 0% - Now $19.99"

I guess "save 0%" sounds better than "Hurry! Buy now at full price!" Smile

Hey, Curtis:

Thanks for the heads-up...your "Got Print" source has great pricing. Hasta la vista, VistaPrint!

Can you share the link for "Got Print?" I've not heard of them, but that's NOT unusual!

VistaPrint does a great job, but their special offers get annoying. They send me a MINIMUM of 1 special offer e-mail a day. (Which is great, I never will actually have to pay full price for anything!)

But how many "Biggest Sale Ever" s can they have?

Thanks to an earlier mention of GotPrint by Curtis, I recently placed my first order for 1000 postcards --5.5" X 8.5", Full color both sides for only $109. They should be here any day now. Vista Print has gotten all my previous orders.

Another good source for mailing items is postedigial.com. They work with the US post office. You can upload files and mailing lists and they will print and mail the items for you. I've done all my mailing (until this one) through them. The postcards are a bit light-weight, but not bad for the price.

Hey all.

I recently ordered 5000 business cards from GotPrint. They are fantastic! Their website is http://www.gotprint.com. My only complaint is how they were packaged...basically just put in a big shipping box. VistaPrint packaged them in boxes of 250. I liked that a lot. Oh well...no biggie! Smile

Best.

Love overnightprints.com nice flashy UV coat as well, and very high quality.

True that, Curtis! They have exceptional deals on one size/quantity, however, the next size up may not reflect the same ratio of savings.

In the end, you may still need to price shop around depending on the size/quantity of your project.

$80 (including shipping) for 5,000 full color business cards, front and back, with a glossy finish is a helluva deal IMO! Smile

http://www.gotprint.com all the way! But, I also use http://www.psprint.com for my posters though. Their quality is also great and fair pricing!

Funny thing is that 100 prints cost only 9.99 at overnight prints, and the shipping was $15.00 for that tiny box! Smile It was so small I almost did not even see it outside. They force UPS on you. However even for less than $30 they were a great buy, and it was pretty easy to design your own on the site, or upload if you want.

I received my postcards from gotprints.com. They look great! UV coated on both sides. Very nice. I couldn't beat the price. Now I have to look at ordering cards.

Yeah I had word files as well, and had to redo everything online and make new stuff, or use a photo editor to make new cards. They turned out even better though, so I am glad I did!

Pick up an older version of Adobe so you can turn everything into a pdf. My version of WordPerfect 10 will export to a .pdf file which most print shops can use.

For GotPrint, I created everything in a drawing program called MicroGraphic publisher. Then I saved the file as a .TIF which GotPrint was able to use wonderfully.

I use WordPerfect 11 to transfer my documents to PDF for publishing my books through POD companies, it works great!

I use http://www.overnightprints.com for all my printing needs. Great company. Just beware blues in your design, as blue and CMYK do not mix well.
