I use Vistaprint and have never had an issue. They also send me discounts frequently.

I used Vistaprint. I didn't have any issues with the quality of the print or the card stock.

I don't like conventional templates, where you just fill the info out and bang it's done, so I tweaked around with mine, and got the layout I wanted.

For the price I thought it was worth what I got.

I've always used them. I never order what I don't have a discount/coupon for through them, because they keep them coming regularly.

Except don't get the free biz cards with their own logo on the back, of course.

I do recommend upgrading the card stock from standard to the next one up.

I used Vistaprint when I first started off. I wasn't impressed. I asked them for a sample pack of cards so I could evaluate the quality because I believe the quality of card says a lot about you and your company. They said they didn't do samples but I would 'be happy' with the quality. When the cards arrived they had been cut slightly crooked and the quality wasn't very good for their best. I also got some fridge magnets made out of the business card design and they were great. I ordered some business cards elsewhere and they sent me a sample pack the day after requesting them. The quality of them was fantastic, they did cost more but I was going for quality all along.

Once Vistaprint have your email address you will be spammed to death by them. Eventually I managed to unsubscribe after several attempts.

I don't think they have hidden costs.

They just try to sell you things like: card holders etc etc before you can check out.

Just make sure everything that is in your basket is what you want.

Agreed. They let you know the whole way through that if you add features what it will cost. Again they do try to sell you "extras", but you don't have to buy them.
