Ask DN: Best online places to order business cards from?

almost 6 years ago from , Freelance Designer

Hey everyone,

I'm looking to find the best sites for ordering business cards. I've tried Moo in the past, but thought the quality was sub-par.

Has anyone here found any great places to get business cards?

    moo.com satisfied me the most. the cards are pretty heavy and they don't bend. It's really high quality for the price.

    I've found PrimoPress/PrimoCards (primopress.com / primocards.com) to be exceptional. Used them back when they were called UVCards.

    They just opened up the letterpress arm of the company and we recently used them to print new cards. Reasonably inexpensive for what we asked, very high quality, and they went out of their way to get the paper weight just right by duplexing their own paper in-house.

    If you're looking for letterpress and super high quality business cards, take a look at Blush.

    I have a resellers account with www.JakPrints.com and have been using them for a few years. I print for clients through them as well.

    The Customer Rep that handles my account is great and I haven't had an issue with prints yet.

    For Cheap Small Runs I've used Print100 a few times and for short runs they are crazy good and VERY cheap. They do UV, Die Cuttings, Stamping, etc.. There turn around times are very fast even though they are in china.

    For Extremely High Quality For extremely high quality stuff, I have to recommend Mama Sauce, Amazing work. http://mamas-sauce.com

    You get what you pay for.

    Moo products are printed digitally which allows them to offer features such as Prinfinity etc.

    All print processes have their limitations but if quality is your primary concern, you'll need to:

    • Cater your design to the print process
    • Find a decent litho or letterpress printer

    Expect the latter to cost significantly more and have a higher minimum order but they offer a wider range of stock and finishes.

    I used jukebox printing for my wedding invitations in Canada, i'd love to use them for business cards too. The invitations where 32point or something weird measurement, super hard could have broken them in half instead of folding almost. My buddy (a print designer) uses them for his business cards and his cards are awesome in being still fairly thin but super stiff. They are canadian and based out of Vancouver, don't know about shipping to other places.

      +1 for Jukebox. Most print shops (Jukebox included) will send you a sample pack if you ask. It's much easier to gauge quality of a printed good when you can hold it in your hand.

    I like Overnight Prints, you can specify the quality (GSM) and I've been using them exclusively for years. Every week they have a new offer too.

    I won't include a URL as they have different sites depending on the country, so Google it. Hope this helps!

    Moo.com quality is better than other online Business card vendors.

    Depending on your needs and ability to work within the constraints, this is a great option, especially for its price tag.

    Edit

    My only complaint is 110 Crane's Lettra White is too thin (personal preference). The next time I order I'm paying extra for the 220.

      Thanks Taurean!

      I actually just came across this site while browsing, and it's currently at the top of my list. The quality looks great for the price. Also thanks for the tip on the paper weights.

    Moo prints with digital presses so they can have a unique image on every card. While that is a nice feature it comes at the cost of quality.

    I print at http://vermillionsilk.com. Quality and service are great here (all submitted files are personally reviewed before print). Thick silk coated cards with options like foil stamping and spot uv at a reasonable price.*

    • IMPORTANT Disclaimer: I work here so my opinion is going to be obviously biased. See for yourself and check out some samples to get a feel for the quality.

    I know a really cool place. I just picked mine up yesterday, with bone coloring. And the lettering is something called Silian Rail.

    I'm partial to imagers.com myself. They have nice paper options and I've never had a problem with color reproduction.

    Moo is always at the top of my list, but Jakprints is a close second.
