Recommendations for good quality, inexpensive business cards?


I made several attempts to print cards in the past, each time with pretty disappointing results. The featured combinations of being "out of focus", too flexible, not centered well, as well as other problems that simply made them look unprofessional. I even splurged on VistaPrint's high-end features. My goal is to just make a nice, crisp-looking card that shows our contact info and our logo. When I worked for large corps, it seems that they had no problem creating high-quality cards, but for whatever reason, trying to print my startup business cards so far resulted in less than acceptable results. If anyone out there can recommend a good (and hopefully inexpensive) vendor, as well as any tips for making the most professional-looking (and feeling) cards, I'd really appreciate it!

Best ever - Vistaprint. They will annoy the hell out of you with follow-up emails, but they're inexpensive, efficient and quick.

Go with moo.com. They have beautiful card stock and the quality and card options is excellent. They will reprint anything for free that does not meet your standards.

If you are not a graphic designer, hire a pro or use a service that does layout for you. Vistaprint actually is pretty affordable if you wait for a special offer, and take the lowest priced and slowest shipping choice, they have good quality card stock.

Have a look at Staples. Prices are a little more on the first printing/front end however once you've used their same-day printing services you can have your cards printed and picked up anywhere there is a Staples store. Staples is in many major US cities and can be a life saver if you forget or run out of cards on a business trip. They say 4 hours but I've seen them do it in 2. They have a strategic relationship with Vistaprint and can do almost every design Vistaprint makes available. If you want quality design, you can have a professional do it, upload the design and get the best of both worlds. They have multiple stock types and will fix any problems.

I have used them all and Moo.com is the best especially for 2 sided cards.
