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 had seen somebody's Business cards that they ordered which were the low quality card stock and they didn't even get the gloss on the face.

These did look like how you described, poor, crap and would not have myself!! Kinda stuff.

your cards do say a lot about yourself as a business and one of the most Important business discisions you have to make.

they were saying about the quality of the card in the reviews

I agrees the business card should look nice and feel nice because they could be the first thing a new customer see

I suppose that's why they don't give you samples. The ones I ordered were the best quality they had on their books(2 years ago). The ones I have now I think are 400gsm laminated both sides.

I remember my last compan were on some sort of eco drive and I was a consultant going to companies who were being charged 1000 per day for my services and the card I handed them on my arrival was extremely poor quality. I apologised for everyone I handed over.

They say the first 30 seconds creates an impression but I also think a business card does also.

I was not impressed with even their best quality business cards. I now use printing for less for my business cards.

I do use them for my banners.

I'd say it depends on other things like:

How do you hold up to there questions?

Your own personal presentation.

There are other factors to take into consideration than just your business cards. But that alone may get you the call for a consult over the other company

The colour on the cards I bought from Vista print was way off, as you can see below (good colour on top). They reprinted the order using the correct colours and I use the bad batch for notes, but I didn't appreciate the waste of time. Many people have said good things about gotprint.com.

Did they just get the color wrong from what was online when you produced the cards?
