Default business cards

Hi everyone,

does anybody know of any good business card deals at the mo?

Need to get quite a few done (100ish) for my degree show in 6 weeks...

moo.com's got a sale on until the end of today, but their postage is quite steep, I'm also a bit confused by vista prints offers..lol!

Any advice would be much appreciated

These are 7 for 100 including delivery but have restrictions

Restrictions: To qualify for the 100 Matt business cards for 2.99 offer, your card must meet the following conditions
  • Must be created using one of our designated "2.99 templates" and business card design tool (submitted business card designs are not part of this offer)
  • Single Sided.
  • The reverse of the card will be white and completely blank with no printing.
    (Our company details will NOT be printed on the reverse of your card as this does not look good.)
  • Cannot contain logos or any other type of image.
  • Cannot change the colour of the text or background.
Note: Although these are cheap business cards, many other companies would classify these as free business cards and charge you a similar price for postage. In summary, nobody gives business cards free, postage is always charged.

Otherwise 19 for 100 including delivery

Don't go near Vista Print. It's not worth the potential repercussions.

I've used Vista Print in the past, they are fine to use as long as you make sure you don't tick any subscription boxes, it just means a bit of skim-reading, easy to do and virtually free.

My friend also works in the printing industry (but does only big business company stuff) and recommends Pronta-Print for consumer things as they are best for price vs. quality.

I'm a bit fan of Moo - quality looking cards - I wouldn't touch Vistaprint with a bargepole.

Thank you for the tip but I've just tried this after looking at Vistaprint but found that it's more expensive for a single sided card - 8.39 for 100 once they've added postage and VAT versus 13.12 for 250 double sided cards from Vistaprint.
