i gotta say moo too.

i don't know about the 'best' but moo is great, i use the mini cards and have gotten everything from postcards to green and the deluxe for my clients and everything has been perfect. Mini cards are great, stiff easy to carry with the case and draw lots of comments and attention.

Vistaprint are very cheap and the quality matches the price point.

I recently ordered the premium Moo cards. They're not bad but could be better. They were guillotined from the back giving a burr on the front face. They were also not allowed to dry quickly enough so the ink from the back has left a slight mark on the front of most cards. After tax and delivery they were a similar price to my local printer.

One more vote for Vista print. I use their "'free" cards. Just pay shipping for a box of 250. Their free cards are nice too, I have a color photo as a background and all the printing I need. PPeole comment that they look good. an you can't beat "free"

Beware of vistaprints

I got totally robbed by Vistaprints, people. I got my cards and all was well until I noticed many months later (more than 12) that a fee of around $14.99 was being billed every single month. I found out through phone calls that it all began when I did Vistaprint cards. I was told that I had checked a box that allowed them to do this. I was furious and demanded that every single dollar be put back on my card or I would sue. The guy sounded understood I meant business and assured me that every dollar would be put back and it was.

Google: "vistaprint scams" and you will see that they are not to be trusted!

4over.com does frosted and transparent cards. Never done those with them, but have done a whole variety of other products from them always with great luck.


Side note: Geez there's a ton of spam in this thread!

If you're looking for some for cheap with a twist, I've used http://www.t-rexcards.com in the past and they are pretty good. Not a lot of the bells and whistles but cheap cards and quality with fast shipping.

Ask the right questions...

Even though I've been in publishing for a long time, I only began buying print about 10 years ago.

What I have learned is this: The question to ask a printer is not, "Can you do this?" it's, "What do you specialize in?"

You'll find that virtually every printer will say they can do your job, but many will job it out themselves. This is particularly true with smaller local printers. So, while many people want/try to "shop local," what they may not realize is that their "local" printer is jobbing out their project. I'm not saying that's wrong, only trying to educate.

That being said if you are a designer/reseller doing print projects for profit, you will probably have a hard time making money on the print component working through local print shops. You are their competition.

A great trade-only resource for biz cards and a variety of other projects is ZooPrinting.com. They require registration, and it's best to use Zoo when you have projects that fall within their standard choices, but they have grown considerably, and have a huge array of product choices.

You will have a very hard time beating their prices and turnaround times, and they now have three production facilities across the USA, so shipping is very reasonable.

Hope that helps!

I've used OverNightPrints lots of times, and know several other designers who have also, and never a lick of trouble.
your boss sued Vista print?!
