    Hello
    In all honesty I've had vistaprint ones?
    Theres loads of designs to choose from, you can have the vistaprint logo removed from the back and you can have a high gloss effect too.
    and they still dont work out too expensive.
    and when your just starting up - as I am too - then saving in all areas is a bonus.
    Hope that helps

      I got mine from Vistaprint too, and I'm really happy with them.

      The shipping can seem a little high, but I went for a large number, so it made the cost more bearable

        I print my own onto glossy photo paper and mount them onto thin card. All it costs is the paper and the ink for my printer. Means I don't have to order in bulk and only print what I need.

          I purchased a bulk load from Vistaprint last year which was a great deal at the time. However, I wish I hadn't as I'm now wanting to change around some of the details on there depending on where I am. Wish I'd ordered less and maybe printed some myself.

            I think I may just pinch that idea if it is okay with you.

              Thanks for your reply's

              Will take a look at Vista Print. Paid quite a lot for the ones ive got. Only trouble is e-bay shop is shut and we have opened the web site so the only relevent info on there is phone number and name lol. Which is a shame as ive got about 500 left.
              Thanks again

                Originally I printed my own off, but found that the hassle of lining them up properly, and having a printer that doesn't always take the paper in straight, made them look fairly cheap and nasty

                That's why I went to Vistaprint in the end.

                  Don't print edge to edge. You can fit 10 on an A4 sheet with a border round the sides and top and bottom. Then trim with a scalpal/sharp craft knife.

                  I don't even square up the card mount on the back, as lomg as it's more or less in the right place, you can just trim the excess of.

                      I use Cards Made Easy. They are a bit more expensive than Vista Print but the quality is excellent. You can either upload your own design or pick from hundreds of designs they have.

                      The cards are virtually indestructable. I know Kipper Workshop use them also.

                      All the best.

                        I use Vistaprint too, always waiti for their special offers ~ which are frequent ~ and it works out really cheap and am more than happy with them. I get postcards from them too with more detail on the back about what I do to send to with orders and hand out at craft fairs and they are fab!

                          Yup - I use Visaprint too - once you've placed your initial order, make sure you're signed up to receive their special offers. They email you almost weekly with offers where all you pay for is the postage - about £4.00 for 100 postcards.

                          I think they're fab!

                              We also go ours from Vistaprint - and were pleasantly suprised by the quality on them.

                              I would recommend them to anyone for the price.
