Hi guys,

Just to pre warn you, i have posted this in a few other forums aswell...

Anyway i wanted to get some business cards printed out, the problem is, im stuck between three companys.

#1,http://www.vistaprint.co.uk/
#2, http://www.goodprint.co.uk/
#3, http://www.123print.co.uk/

I have my design all ready to go, and be printed, i was wondering if anybody has ever used any of these before?

maybe some one would be able to help me pic one,
I havr posted around so in a few days i will check the polls,
and who ever has the most votes ( in total ) ill go with.

Thank You

We use http://www.overnightprints.co.uk/ (http://www.overnightprints.com for those of us in the US, but they have a UK website).

We are thrilled at the value, quality, and how fast the products were produced and shipped. We used them for our 2011 holiday cards this year which turned out spectacular.

They are the only company we use for our printing needs.

I only picked vistaprint because I had used them once before but I have now switched over to moo which is awesome. Even their customer service was top notch and that is something I am very crazed about, esp. for newer companies.

ive used Vistaprint for years ( business cards, magents, xmas cards and postcards) without major issues. sometimes their printers will send items in wrong sized boxes (damaging goods), but these are always replaced within days at no cost.

I have used Vistaprint for businesscards and I have been very pleased with the service. I would recomend them to anybody in search of desig, T-shirts, business cards etc.

I have tried Vistaprint plenty of times, seems very good and not too long for delivery.

never get my business cards anywhere else but Vistaprint. One thing to avoid from them are their PVC banners. we recently got an email offering a free PVC banner (small) so as at the time i was looking at creating a laminated sign for an item sale on my stall i thought i would order 1 as it would last longer than a laminated A4 printed sign. but when i arrived the printing was good and it will do its purpose, but the quality of the banner material was very poor (if i paid i would have complained about the quality)

Seems Vistaprint is the next one I need to check out. I am thinking about doing a few hundred for random promos that we do through out the year. Anyone know if they are the best when it comes to a bundle/bulk order?

In the past I've used Vistaprint and Goodprint - I thought Vistaprint were shockingly bad, Goodprint I was pleased with.

Yes explain how?

ive used Vistaprint for years and only had 1 issue which i would say was not their direct fault, but that of the printing firm they use as when i ordered some postcards they arrived bent as the printer had squashed them in a box that was too small, when i contacted Vistaprint, they replaced these no questions asked.

Happy to explain, I ordered some of their free cards a couple of years ago, they took a while to come, a few weeks if I recall, and when they turned up they were so poor quality as to be unusable.

The cards were a slightly odd size, maybe same width as normal cards, but not as high and the paper they were printed on was incredibly flimsy. I binned them, as I wouldn't hand such poor quality cards out.

The delay in turning up might have been my fault, I have a vague recollection of booking their slowest delivery.

Now, I accept the 'free' cards might not show off Vistaprint's qualities to their best, but I recall the postage charges were quite high and the overall price wasn't that much cheaper than Goodprint with one of their 50% off offers.

Goodprint weren't perfect, the ink tends to come off on the back of cards left in my jacket pocket for a while, but I don't think that unreasonable. Their full prices aren't particularly cheap but they run regular 40-50% off offers which are good value.
