Gees those guys must burn through advertising dollars.
Anyway, I clicked on the $2 for 500 cards.
Then of course there is a cost to upload your own image, paid that,
then if you want it glossy so that water doesnt easily stain it, its another $16 or so.
Then I figured with all the add ons, I would see what the economy of scales were. Turns out that if you want more than 1,000, it jumps a fair bit, but still manageable, and that 2,000 cards is the max before they just quote silly prices.
Since the postage is about $16 regardless of what you do, I figured I may as well go for 2,000 cards.
Then of course they are masters of up-selling, and I realized that I didnt have my second dog business on the card front, but at markets I mostly want to steer people to this site, so I found that for another $8, I can put a calender on the back of the card (for year 2013) and put my own title, so of course i put the new URL on there too.
Thats how my $2 for 500 cards turned into $80 + for 2,000 cards. But of course its still close to half price of the local internet providers.
Anyone have a similar story where up-selling has really cost you?
