I am looking to make some business cards finally after putting it off for a while cause of money. but I am not really sure of where to look. I know of vistaprint. but the problem with them is the image that i want to put on there pixelates really bad when i put it on there and i cant seem to fix it at all. any other ideas of where to go?

I was going to suggest Vistaprint. The pixelating problem may not be Vistaprint but could be your image.

I've used moo.com and am happy with the results.

You may have a low res file you are trying to upload to the site?

Anyways, I use ineedtoprint.com. Full bleed color for about $20 for 1000 cards if I remember correctly.

I agree that you may be using a low resolution image.

I tried Moo, but my cards came back super dark. I didn't bother with them again.

Vistaprint is the way to go, for me. I love them. You can get plenty of cards, and they aren't extremely expensive. The quality is great too; upgrade to the better paper.

I printed samples on Moo.com. They give you a free sample set, but you have to pay for the shipping. The sample cards have a bar across the bottom of the photo side with a Moo promotional code. The quality was good enough for me to order a normal set last week, but it didn't blow me away.

- The thickness of the paper seems to be enough to last a while in a persons pocket or wallet.
- The ability to print up to 50 different photos is awesome. I meet someone who wants wedding photos, so I give them a wedding sample shot. I meet someone who likes pinup photos, so I give them a pinup shot. Etc.
- The photos come out with a matte look (not like glossy film), so it won't always present your work in the best possible way. I'm also not confident in the color being accurate due to the printing process and paper that they use.
- Price is very fair for being able to have 2 sided business cards with 50 unique photos.

I just used http://www.redtagprint​sale.com/ (external link) last month. Got 1000 2 sided full color gloss cards for about $25, and they used a local (to me) print shop.
Really satisfied, will use them again.

Another one for moo.com! Excellent quality and the design tools on the site can produce some great looking cards.

Another vote for Vistaprint. I have used them since 2007 and am happy with their cards, ordering process, helpful layout templates, fast turnaround, and prices.

i use overnightprints.com. they have great cards! 15pt cardstock, and they have full color 4:4 printing. They use an offset printer, just awesome. Plus their prices are great.
