Hi, this is my first post. Sorry if this has been done before though- (I promise I'll show my crafts later when I get my pictures organized).

My thing is that Im currently looking for Business Cards, Ive never had one before. I just started a new job where I pretty much need them, and I just moved to a new city where I think theyll come in handy.

Do any of you know of any websites that have business cards for pretty cheap without any gimmicks? Or even websites that let  you upload your own business card design and dont charge too much for the printing?

This idea also seems convinient to me after explaining to strangers about the crafts I do, so why not give out a business card? Maybe some others have done this too.

I like Vistaprint.com.  I ordered some cards from them and they look absolutely fabulous!  I say splurge and get the glossy paper!

After ordering some from Vistaprint (which I did like, but didn't love), I ended up throwing a ton out because my address and information changed. From that point on I decided to print my own. I chose a template (through Microsoft.com or Avery.com) and purchased relatively inexpensive Avery clean-edge business cards to print from my printer. In the long run, it's possible that I'm spending a bit more per card, but this way I can print them only when I need them and change them at any time.

Ive kinda checked out Vista print. Im sure I want glossy prints, those were 19.99 right? except their designs are pretty so so.

The thing with the address, I just kind of wanted my name with my phone number and email. I really dont think people need my address, yet. I hope, think, that would solve that problem. Being that I just moved states, and houses three times in the past five months...but printing my own sounds good...I just dont know if the printer I have could handle that. Thanks for the replies so far Smiley

"Art" or "Sanity"? I choose Art!

Hi! Congrats on your move and gettings set up with new business cards.

After printing cards on my home computer, and wasting a bunch of ink on blank cards that feel thinner than most traditional business cards (and have those tacky perforated edges, micro or not) I became sold on Vista Print. I use them for all of my business correspondence from business cards and stationary to sales sheets and brochures for a coordinated look.

I've had both the matte and glossy cards, and definitely prefer the glossy because the colors just pop out at you. They have a good varitey of premade designs, but I uploaded my own photo for my cards, and that worked exceptionally well. All I had to do was make sure that my design fit within the guidelines of their template, and they took care of the rest.

I know that they can be expensive at first glance, but they're always offering specials, especially once you're an established customer. Their products look and feel professional, and that really makes for a strong first "image" impression.

Good luck in your search for the perfect business cards! Take your time, and you'll find something that suits you. Smiley
