Overnightprints is much better. My mom got her business card in only a couple days, excellent quality. Ask anybody here, they'll most likely choose ONP.

Vista Print is also quite good. I've never heard of Overnight Prints. The products are very good, and the prices are reasonable. The only thing I don't like is the added shipping cost. Cartons of cards can be heavy so the shipping prices add up in a hurry.

I'll do some price comparisons on my next order and see how they compare.

Not vista print. Vista print started charging my bank account 15/month automatically. I did not get anything for that 15 a month. I caught it in about 5 months,

I like Overnightprints. The price of the cards are VERY good. However, it costed me $250US :shock: to get them UPSed overnight. The sam eprice it would have cost me to have them done locally. Only I would have had to wait a week or so to get them done locally.

Then I find that my town (just outside of Edmonton) doesn't have UPS overnight service, and there was a shipping delay due to weather. So I could have gotten it sent express for about $200 cheaper and still get it the same day. Well, without the weather delay that is. Heh.

But that wasn't Overnight Print's fault. I talked with UPS and they wouldn't refund Overnight Prints, so they could refund me. Weather delays are not their fault. :roll:

All in all though, I needed the cards for a show, and if they were a day late, it would have been a huge loss for me. If I had paid for the cheaper shipping, the weather delay would have made it arrive a day too late. So I paid the money to make sure they arrived well enough in advance, and they arrived the night before my gig. Just in time. :P

I used Vistaprint once and the quality was very good and I only paid for shipping.

I now have souvenirs made with my business info on them - much easier to pass out to more people.

Yeah, vista print is great. Much better quality than homemade cards, and inexpensive.

Lol. Business cards aren't just flimsy pieces of paper, adn a flimsy piece of paper would be extremely un-professional. Get them printed, and they come in a stirdy stock.

I did mine myself, and they came out great. Just get good business card paper. I also got a program for making business cards, and they look great.

I've used both companies. Overall I think OvernightPrint is better. Their card stock is heavier (although you can get heavier stock from Vistaprint as an upgrade) and I find them more straightforward with their pricing. Vistaprint tends to have all sorts of "specials" which sometimes don't turn out to be such a great deal. Here's a review that I wrote:

I designed my own cards from an online source, www.dcp-print.com which had a special (they still might) for 100 free cards. The low shipping costs and quick arrival surprised me and the cards look great.

I ordered 100 double sided custom glossy cards from Overnight for only 14 dollars!!!!!!!! It is the best. I have had cards from both and Overnight is heads above Vista.
