VistaPrint isn’t without those bells and whistles. You have the option of printing vertically, choosing linen or cardstock, and deciding if magnetic cards would do the trick. You can bring in your own images or use stock photos from the VistaPrint website. If you do choose to use your own image, VistaPrint supports more file types than most of the competition, so there will be little need to convert file types.
There are other options as well. Your logo can be used on envelopes and labels as well as flyers, postcards, and brochures. Signs and banners can be created as well, marking another service that VistaPrint offers above and beyond the competition.
As far as printing is concerned, quality was solid, steadily average, but the industry standard 300 dpi was used. If you plan on using traditional cards you’ll be pleasantly surprised with the options, as front and back printing and bleeding edges are available. Other sized cards and rounded edges are also not available, but both matte and gloss finishes are.
Turnaround time was longer than average, generally taking between three and seven days. Our review process saw those turnaround times closer to the latter and with lack of 24/7 support you had better not be in a rush. LiveChat, email and phone support are available, but our review process saw below average ratings on each when compared with competing card printing services.
Issues aside, VistaPrint did come in at one of the lowest cost business card printing services on the market, by a fair margin, offering 500 full dolor standard cards at only 25 dollars, half the cost of most competitors. Those aggressive price points continued, with 1000 premium full color cards pricing at 70 dollars with VistaPrint versus a range of 110-700 dollars with competing services. If cost is a serious motivator, VistaPrint warrants, at the very least, a close examination of its services.
As you ask yourself the important questions about your business card needs keep VistaPrint in mind. It isn’t top of the line and doesn’t boast the most features, but if you aren’t in a rush for your cards, don’t see a need for instant support, are okay with quality traditional cards, VistaPrint can meet your needs at a far lower price than the competition.
VistaPrint didn’t knock any socks off in our review process. It did however provide quality business cards at a very reasonable price.
