      I believe that there is no online printing service that can be compared to any local print studio. Even if the prices would be the same, there are delivery costs, and it's harder to complain when something's wrong if you use an online service.

        most local printers will be much more expensive and have a less quality product. I wouldn't suggest using them unless you need spot colors or something very custom & specific.

    I've used VistaPrint a few times over the years... started back in 2001 and have used them off and on for a while.

    Another vote for gotprint - I have used them for everything for years. Great pricing, very fast delivery and amazing quality.

      The only time vista print was cheap was back in the late 90's Today they are THE most expensive online printer. Easily 3 - 4 times more expensive than everyone else. Their quality is piss poor to boot.

      I would encourage you to try someone else....anyone...and you will be pleasantly surprised.

            Don't forget it's what's on the card that is important.

            I see so many business cards just convey information. Even places call instead of phone on a card increases response rates because you're giving directions.

            All business cards should do what all adverting does

            Demonstrate a problem
            Show a solution
            Explain why they should come to you
            Call to action

            Custom Widgets at Affordable Prices
            Available at a Store Near You
            Call Your Widget Expert Gary Now at 000.000.0000


            Problems; Where to get the right widgets
            Are they affordable
            How far do I have to travel

            Just off the top of my head

    Hi there,

    GotPrint is excellent but you sometimes have to wait longer than you'd like for your finished product. Order well in advance of any deadlines.

    All the best,

    Sasha.

    I made some at Vistaprint and they were cheap and fast. Looked great as well. I highly recommend this site. They usually have pretty good deals.

    I have not had good luck with Vista Print. I switched to NextDayFlyers.com and I was very impressed. I have ordered brochures, business cards and flyers from them. I am a graphic designer, so I was not happy when Vista Print didn't print the true colors. NextDayFlyers has good quality paper with vibrant, true color, just the way I designed it! :-)

    I have been focusing in offline marketing the last few years and flyers is one of my marketing tool. I have found that the cheapest (and the best) flyers is to get it from local printer. They can print it fast and I am very satisfied with the quality of the flyers. Check out with your local printer and get the quote from at least 2-3 printer to compare.

      Always best to establish local connects. The printer may end up sending you business.

      • I use to use Vista Print and Got Print. Nothing wrong with either one.

        Then I went back and started checking out local printing companies. Wow what a huge difference from one company to the next.

        Found a local printer who's prices are a little higher than the online printers, but I get my product same day.

        If you have your data on a flash drive or CD and your local printer uses the latest software the quality is impeccable.

        What the online businesses can't do is send me leads like my local printer can and he doesn't charge me for them. Some leads are a dead end but some have been big spenders.

        Networking with a local printer may cost you more on your purchase but consider who they know and how you can leverage that for your company.

    bosslogo.com is the end all...

    if you have a business and to the trade you can use zooprinting.com, these are the best options out there that destroy gotprint on quality and turn around time, and do price match so price is no option... thought i would throw my 2 cents in there. new to this site, but i have been printing for years.
    Welcome to the forum, I see this is your first post.

    You have "printing" in your name.

    You have guns blazing for an option many people here use and swear by. You make unsubstantiated claims that seem to go counter to everyone else's experience. And then you make a pitch for an option that nobody else has suggested.

    Forgive me for making the assumption that you have some sort of a vested interest in this company, and are doing a fairly obvious job of shilling for it here.

    I ask forgiveness because I want to give you the benefit of the doubt, but you are making it really hard. You build trust around here by being honest, genuine and helpful. Being self serving doesn't work. People see through it every time.

    I could be wrong about you, and I hope I am.

    But I doubt it.
